We stayed here in December and have been to Amsterdam a few times before so we knew we wanted to be close to Dam Square. For what we paid considering how close we were to Dam Square and the location it was fantastic value! Have paid the same price and stayed on the outskirts of the centre so for the... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in October for Amsterdam Dance Event. Stayed in a 3 bed room with an ensuite. Had no complaints. Located in the middle of the red light district. Happy with everything. Only slight issue was that there was no lift and we were 6 flights of stairs to climb at the end of each night. We... More

My two friends and I (all 19 y/o) had a very positive experience staying in this hostel. We stayed in the House of Flying Daggers room, which was a triple bed. Our windows overlooked the red light district and the canal, so we had a good spot to watch everything that was going on. Couldn't believe how cheap it was... More

Everything was nice here other than there was no kitchen and the bathroom smelled terrible. The beds were comfortable and my luggage was safe! The vibe wasn't the best and the wifi was sometimes slow. The location was perfect and near a grocery store. I felt safe at night and I would stay here again.

We had a private room and we got stolen, the staff members didn´t really care and same with the manager... The location is right in the middle of the red light district, just remember to lock your stuff before leaving the room!

So the location of this place is pretty spot on. It's right in the heart of the red light district but don't let that put you off it feels safe and isn't seedy or anything. It's in walking distance of everything, including Central Station. We had a 3 bed private en suite room which was Lock, Stock & 2 Smoking... More

My son stayed there with friends, and lost his wallet in his room. I only learned it a few days later, and called the reception without much hope. They were very nice and helpful. They found the wallet, and sent it by post, and emailed me the international tracking number. So, I cannot comment on the hotel in which I... More

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 The rooms were a bit outdated but otherwise very good.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
