Been here a few times and always had a great time. Location is brilliant with a 5 minute walk from the train station, and they have a great bar and smoking room where you can socialise and meet other travellers. Staff are helpful and bathrooms/breakfast are fine. The place is clean, the dorms are noisy, while the single rooms are... More

We decided to stay here because it's in a good location, it has a bar and smoke lounge downstairs, and because we could get a room with a private bath. The people working and staying here are friendly. The room was basic, but clean. The thing we didn't like was the noise. You could hear every single door and conversation... More

pretty much what you expect from a backpackers. and I don' mean that in a negative way. i stayed in a shared dorm, sleeping in a double bulk bed with my friend - that's cool. cleanliness ok, staff friendly, uncomplicated. sometimes pretty loud, but that's to expect. Bar, smoking lounge etc. We chose it because it's a five min. walk... More

I loved the location of this place, extremely handy from both Centraal Station and all the possible things to do in Amsterdam. The guy who seemed to be behind the reception or bar the time we were there was a guy from NZ/Australia (can't remember which) and a beard and he was great, gave us everything we needed with a...

Stayed here for one night at the end of my trip to Amsterdam, iv stayed in a number of hostels in Amsterdam and this is by far the best! The bar area and smoking area make it a highly social and lively environment, if your looking for somewhere quite to stay I wouldn't recommend this hostel! If your a highly... More

This place could not have been better. I enjoyed my first visit so much I came back the next year and did it again. The location is perfect, just a 10 minute stroll from Centraal Station. The staff is unfailingly friendly and helpful and they have accommodations for every budget, from a single room to a 20-bed dormitory. The on-site... More

Visited for 3 days this past weekend. Hostel very central, friendly atmosphere and nice vibe to the place. I stayed in room 209. The beds are comfy but I recommend having some earplug if at front of building as noisy in the mornings. Lockers under bed to keep bags secure. The room had a shower and toilet but I rarely... More

Best place to be if you're traveling alone or with just a few friends. Very friendly vibe around the place. The guys at the reception are awesome. They'll sort you out for anything you need. Decent rooms. Cheap. And bang in the city center!

The hostel is clean and does the job but it has a nice hangout area downstairs where one can light up and chill out with a couple of beers after visiting Amsterdam during the day. As you can see from previous reviews, I like hostels where there is a bar. It's great for meeting new people and also takes away... More

A lively hostel that is centrally located, helpful staff and clean rooms. I have been there three times and have no complaints other than don't eat the boiled eggs - they are always grey, however I have seen this in many European hostels / hotels.
