I stayed as part of a stag do in April this year. There was 12 of us, and we managed to get 3 rooms of 4 bunks, with shower and toilet in rooms. You pay for what you get, a basic stay, but the staff are very friendly, and the bar area is relaxed. I don't smoke but didn't find... More

Good hostel to chill and meet other people. No complaints. Friendly staff. There's a cool chillout room at the back with pillows where you can smoke. So here's my funny story from the Flying Pig. Came downstairs had a smoke. Saw this British lady there having a smoke too. This was about 9am. Return at night after a day exploring... More

The downtown location is fantastic. Less than a 5 minute walk to Dam Square. It's right in the middle of where all the action takes place. It's around the corner from a smoke shop where you can buy which type you want and you can choose to smoke it in the smoke shop or head back to the hostel and... More

This is simply a big party hostel right next to the Red Light District, a short walk from the train station. So, if you are traveling as a group, or like partying or smoking, this is it. If you like a cozier hostel to meet fellow travelers, move another kilometers or two. I stayed there for one night and had... More

We went to Amsterdam as a group of 8 lads, and couldn't have chosen a better hostel. The hostel is a five minute walk from the central station, and from all the main attractions. Free breakfast every morning was just what we needed to get us out of bed and out to experience the city. Never needed a taxi, just... More

One of the best hostels stayed in our 6 month trip of Europe. The common area is definitely the best I've ever stayed, the staff fantastic and the drinks cheap! The rooms are definitely 5 star but they're enough :) we had a double bed too which was a cool change and nice option to have! When we arrived our... More

The location of this hostel is incredible, right in the centre. The hostel is horrible, they have a social bit downstairs, which is just filled with people smoking weed. For someone who doesn't smoke, it wasn't for me. They also play music until about 3/4am, and it is very loud in the bedrooms. The hostel isn't that clean, the rooms... More

To premise this review, I've always been weary of hostels because I'm a weird sleeper and need background noise to better fall asleep, plus I like having a private bathroom. After coming from Prague where we stayed in a luxury apartment, the rooms here were not the biggest. Then again, it is of course a hostel, so yeah...to be expected.... More

Arrived here with my friend in July, the reception desk was very helpful and sorted us out straight away. There was a lift which was great because our bags were very heavy. First impressions on the hostel was friendly as the reception is connected to a bar which was full of chatting travelers. The room was clean and basic. We... More

A good little find. This place is central (close to the train station and shopping area), clean and with really helpful and friendly staff. I wish all shared dorms had lockable under-bed baskets and a reading light above each bunk. The breakfast was awesome.
