Me and a friend went here at the start of backpacking through Europe, so we were on a budget however it wasn't too modest. The accommodation was one of the cheapest we found, so it does seem €33 is allot for a hostel but others were much higher. I'll get to the basics I wanted to know as a first... More

We paid €33 per night but this seems to be a general reflection of Amsterdam. It's an expensive place. The hostel was clean, guests were friendly and the staff helpful. Slice of hot floppy bread and jam for breakfast. It was an OK stay. The area was nice but it took around 30 mins walk to get the station with... More

Cheap. Clean. Staff is very friendly. Beds are not that comfortable and there is no ladder to get on the upper bed. Tiny bathrooms but clean. Rooms are small in general. Simple breakfast: toast with jam or peanut butter and tea and coffee. Wifi is good. Free city maps. Easy to find. In total: it's quite okay.

This hostel was fine for the 6 nights I spent in Amsterdam, it was accommodating and the staff were helpful. The toilets/showers were not always that clean and as a solo traveler, big groups of people made it hard to meet people. But it was okay. A cute cat lives there.

Was clean, easy to find and overall not too bad for the price. There are very steep stairs to climb up with your suitcases and there is no luggage room to store your things if you have a late flight. They provided breakfast too, don't expect too much from this, a bit of toast and some spreads. Also wifi never... More

Stayed here with some friends on a weekend trip to Amsterdam. Stayed in a number of hostels however this place was quite poor. The common area downstairs is nice and a computer which is provided is a nice touch. The staff were nice and friendly also. However the room was cold, damp and the door didnt properly close.

As you can tell from some of the other posts and the management responses, being disrespected from the staff is not uncommon. The rooms are so small any person would feel extremely claustrophobic. They jam as many buNks as humanly possible into small cramped rooms without keeping the customers in mind.The bathroom is almost comedic it is so bad. They... More

Dear Alexis, We see you are back in Milan:) Again as we wrote in the reply for the review of Bianca we really wish you well. To be honest you are right that you went to Marriott (we also like that place). When we checked you guys in we noticed you are not the hostel type. We are used to... More
