Liked it actually, because of the staff and the help I got. Met some friends from back home and we had a great time. Great location, between culture and fun areas......hahaha. Also handy to rent a bike, makes it so easy and Dutch!

Enjoyed our stay! The rooms are relatively small, but the beds were clean, the staff was friendly, and the location was perfect. Would just suggest getting ladders for the beds because if I wouldn't have been traveling with friends I would've felt awkward climbing into bed. Thanks!

There is nothing good I can say about this hostel except for location. If you want to be far from the Central Rail Station and away from the Red Light and entertainment district of the town and close to the Van Gogh Museum, then its location is excellent. EVERYTHING else is terrible. First of all, I have traveled to 72... More

Where to start ? Firstly, it always stunk wherever you were mainly of piss. My room mates were horrible simply their to smoke weed they began to get high in the rooms. I tried to be nice but they left their dirty underwear all over the room and were rude and didn't wait properly to use the bathroom meaning I... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for your stay. We have noticed that you basically complain most about your room mates. You never mention these things to us during your stay, but it is also a risk you take when choosing a dorm. It so happenend that the rest of your room mates were friends and you were a solo traveller. We... More

A few friends and I stayed here on a spontaneous trip to Amsterdam. We arrived at 3 am when we had to walk the streets looking for an atm to pay for the visit before we could check in, no exceptions. The room was small but tidy enough... Or so we thought. Our second night we woke up in the... More

Was a simple but clean and fun hostel. Was exactly what I needed and in a great location, also compared to other places at least affordable. If you are not picky and spend more time exploring the city than inside, you will like it. If they put a few chairs in the room and some hangers for clothing it would... More

The bedrooms are atrocious. No shutters, so if you're coming in the summer be prepared to have sunlight shining on your face at 6AM. Staff didn't seem concerned with this as they had "never had complaints". The rooms are extremely hot and claustrophobic and the pillow you'll sleep on is like a leather cushion from a sofa or something. The... More

Dear Jose, Thank you for your stay! We are suprised by your comment. You choose to stay in our biggest and cheapest dorm. We cleaned your pillow and gave you brand new linen. We use normal curtains for our rooms. You really were the only that told us about light coming in the room, we thank you for this and... More

Rooms are absolutely tiny and filled to capacity with bunks, room was directly by the street and because of the packed nature of the room windows had to be left open meaning a very early wake up. Breakfast time is provided according to room number so if you're on the first floor it's 7am to 7.45am or too bad. I... More
