Great location in the city center, right on the Red District. Nice and helpful stuff, the rooms are clean and the interior is really nice , the lockers are big enough, and the bathroom was clean also.

Heart of Amsterdam isn't that bad compared to other hostels; as soon as you walk out the down literally across the road are working girls in the Red Light District so if you're uncomfortable with that stuff I'd steer clear... Steps are steep and no elevator so dragging your stuff up flights can be a drag, keypad to get in... More

The smartest in architectural solutions, (you can sit on your lower bed without hitting yourself into a head). Interior design in movie themes (every room different movie). The cleanest hostel I've ever been! (they change sheets &towels everyday). Reasonable price.Super nice helpful staff. Sometimes you can get a room with view on the Red Light's girls, so it's quite unnusual.... More

The staff were helpful and the rooms good - especially the ensuite bathrooms. However, a visit from a mouse during my stay unfortunately put me off - otherwise it would have been 4/5*s. Bring some ear plugs as being right in the red light district was great as it was so central, but noisy during the weekend nights.

I really did not enjoy being inside the Heart of Amsterdam hostel. Out of all the hostels I've stayed in it stood out as one with the darkest, quietest (in a bad way), most cramped-feeling rooms, least friendly service, and (no fault of theirs I know) least friendly roommates. I literally felt uncomfortable any time I was in the room,... More

Went with the lads and had a great time. Hotel rooms are all themed on a movie. Makes for a fun atmosphere. Bathrooms were clean and modern. The only confusing thing on this place is that you book it online and pay for it when your there. They will not charge you twice. Also the location is just perfect!

I stayed here along with 3 others recently for my birthday. After reading the reviews, I was expecting it to be a nightmare, but in fact I was pleasantly surprised. For one, even though our online reservation stated 'bunkbeds', we had 4 single beds in our private room, plus an en-suite toilet and shower. One thing about our room however,... More

The hostel itself was about middle of the road - neither super good nor super bad. The staff was pleasant and helpful and the facilities good though a bit worn. I stayed in an 8-man dorm which was basic but clean and had an ensuite bathroom which was modern and clean. Each pair of beds had a reading light and... More
