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

Group of 8 guys, early 20s going to Amsterdam to drink, party, etc Can't beat the location; though it was overpriced for our '8-man private room' No issues with access early or late, had all amenities you could need for a price Would visit again if I couldn't afford somewhere nicer

Just returned from one night here with a group of friends, and we were very pleased with our stay. The "Fight Club" room and ensuite shower/WC were clean and comfortable. Each bunk bed had it's own free locker (big enough to fit a cabin luggage sized bag), reading light, electric socket, comfy pillow and duvet. I was pleasantly surprised that... More

Just returned from a 2 night stay here and this hostel really exceeded all of our expectations! A group of 7 of us stayed in one of their private rooms. The room was clean and spacious. Definitely not what we expected! It is everything you need when all you'll be doing is just returning to the room to sleep. The... More

We stayed for 2 nights in the Men in Black room. All the rooms are themed after different films. The room is on the 4th floor (2 sets of small winding staircases) with no lift so not ideal for dragging massive suitcases up (which we had). We had 2 x bunk beds which were comfortable and clean. The bathroom is... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in Room 23 which is the Men in Black Room. All the rooms are movie themed and our room had 2 bunk beds which were really comfortable and clean. The rooms are basic but neat and tidy. The bathrooms are quite modern, the toilet itself strangely faced the wall and your knees are up... More
