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 The rooms were a bit outdated but otherwise very good.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

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
