First of all - the location is great. If you're going to amsterdam to do "the red light district" definitely stay here because you're smack bang in the middle of it all. The rooms were a bit outdated but otherwise very good. My only complaints would be that the bunk beds are so high! I'm not the strongest person so... More

I was pretty freaked out right away by the décor and the feeling I got in while checking in. The front desk is low so the person behind it cant see everyone coming in. I didn't once have to show a room card or anything on my many coming and goings. The stairs and pictures on the walls are from... More

The hostel is located right in the middle of the red light district which some people may not like but we thought the location was great and really close to everything and it was still quiet at night. The hostel is pretty small, the rooms are nice but our stay was just ruined by a rude person in our room... More

A word of warning: this place is right in the red light district. Decor is a little like a haunted house and the stairs are pretty steep and narrow (I struggled in a moon boot) but rooms were very clean and spacious, they even made the beds daily! Bathroom was nice too! The staff however were not friendly in the... More

This beauty is smack-bang right in the middle of the red light district. Each night we walked no further then 5 minutes to the best clubs, cafés and sex shows. The rooms were massive, something most European hostels lacked through out my travel and the staff were super helpful and friendly. I'd just like to give a special mention to... More

Ended up being around 38euros/night, and 14 of us stayed there for 4nights. I understand that the location was sublime, but the rooms were dark and stuffy. Having come back from holiday, I now find myself with bed-bug bites all over my body.If you want a good experience in amsterdam, DON'T come here.

We had a single room for 6 girls. It poured like crazy 2 hours after our arrival and leaked into our room (3rd floor). They kindly put us in a new room for the night. For that they gave us free breakfast for the rest of our stay. Great staff as well, told us about all the good spots around.... More

Pleasantly surprised when we went into the room, it was very clean and seemed hygienic enough. The windows didn't really open or shut properly but this wasn't an issue. We did think that the safes were broken though as it wasn't explained that the safe keys had to be collected seperately to the room keys! There was always hot water... More

The only good thing about This hostel is the location: it is close to the center and station. The hostel is placed in a noisy street with too many sex-shops and strip-clubs. (You couldn't take up the Windows because it was a chaos outside). My friend and I (we are 17 years) were placed in a dirty (!) room with... More
