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

Spent 3 nights in a shared accommodation of 8, rooms were spartan and a bit dingy but clean and comfy beds. Staff were helpful and informative and top location. Good for the budget traveler, but if money can be burned i'd look else where. Points for a clockwork orange painted on my accommodation door though.

Nice little hostel. Clean and good service. Only issue was we went during summer, the room is painted black and I slept terribly. No air conditioning cant remember any fans, it didn't work if there were. Great location.

My partner and I had a private room with en suite, room number 1. Only steps we encountered were the ones entering the hostel. It was everything we needed for a 3 day stay. Clean and fully functioning with TV and shower. Little noisy at night with other hostellers but that's what you expect when on holiday in Amsterdam! Reception... More
