Service was rubbish no one there at the counter sometimes, from what it's advertised it is nothing like it, it's all metal bunkbeds, cold rooms, no themed rooms just a poster on each door of a movie, but location was centre of red light district and was ok

Located in the center of the prostitution area. The Hotel smells weed (canabis) right when you enter. Bathroom smells urine and the bedroom window, with direct access from the street, cannot be closed : --> Frozen night, --> exposure on the street just as the hores next door, --> direct access into the bedroom from the street --> Canabis' smoke...

Didn't find out until we got there that this hostel is situated right in the middle of the red light district, which is something they didn't really mention at all on their hostel desciption page. Other than that it was fine. Bed was clean, there's electric outlets at every bed and a towel included. The bathroom in the room we... More

It was a hilarious trip. I was in the Lord of the Rings themed room and literally had a massive painted mural of Gollum above my bed. Location was great for nightlife, staff were so helpful, and price was good. It is the perfect place to come back and crash after a big night out in Amsterdam.

We stayed here over Kings Day weekend so naturally it was really busy. The hostel was clean, in a really good location (Red Light District) which we found great for exploring and walking around and easy to get to other parts of the city from. The staff were friendly and helpful and the 3 euro brekky was great!

We thought she got it from something she ate, but the night after we slept there she got the bites. This other girl posted pictures of the... More

Excellent stay here with 5 friends all in one rom. Room was very clean and modern, including bathroom. Room exceeded expectations. Only negative would be the condition of the corridors, but this didn't affect the stay at all. Perfect location right in the middle of party town

I had my doubts about this place as it was situated right on the main road of the Red Light District, and so I thought that maybe it would be a bit run down, as it was very reasonably prcied. But when I arrived, I soon realised that I was completely wrong. The entire place was well furnished, very clean... More
