Central location, calm area. Rudimental facilities, no breakfast/cooking option, no common areas, warm water and showers not optimal. Rooms were small, but staff very helpful and friendly. All in all very basic, but works for a night.

The arrangement of the beds were horrendous! Too many beds were crammed in one room. Highly uncomfortable. The hostel is okay for a one night stop. If you're staying for longer time, I do not recommend it. The location however was extremely convenient. Good restaurants can be found in the area.

When we arrived we were told that the communal area (where we planned to hang out, meet people, get breakfast) was closed for renovation. We were not told this prior to our visit and it meant that we had no where to sit and relax, especially since the bunk beds in our room were too low to sit on without... More

Do not stay here if you want to be able to enter your room without a massive confrontation! When I checked in, I was told that guests do not receive a key to the front door, but that this was not a problem because “someone is always here.” This proved not to be the case at a time no later... More

This place is the worst you can get when it comes to accommodation. Don't bother, look elsewhere, worst accommodation experience of my life. A lot worse than what's depicted in the photos, extremely rude and unhelpful staff, extremely dirty, extremely expensive. I really cannot find enough negative adjectives to describe this place. Do yourself a favour and stay away from... More

If you're travelling solo and looking for a bit of fun and atmosphere this probably isn't the best place! There is no common room which I think has a massive impact on how social the dorm rooms are, as there's no other point of contact with the people you're sharing with! The room I stayed in had a very loud... More

I stayed here for just one night in the 12 bed dormitory. Yeah, it's a bit packed but it wasn't too bad really. It's perfect for sleeping and getting back on the road. Our room faced the road, I was worried that it might get pretty noisy but it was cool. Slept soundly. The room was clean with clean sheets... More

Our duration was 4 nights. Got kicked out before the4th night. Rooms was smaller than perceived in photo. Wasn't allowed guest knowing we were tourist. Rude and disrespectful customer service overall.

Stayed in the 6 bed private room. Legit experience. Cheapest beds we could find in Amsterdam hands down. Guys that worked the front desk were legit. Great advice on how to see the city. No breakfast option, which would be nice, but you can't ask for everything for this price. Locker cost 1 euro also, which is....meh. Overall the best... More

After reading many of the reviews on Cosmos hostel when me and my friend arrived we weren't expecting anything particularly nice. However, must say we were both pleasantly surprised :) The man on the reception was very polite and gave us a map circling all the places we wanted to go, and even writing down the buses and trams we...

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
