It is true that this hostel is about twenty minutes from the city by train, but the station is five minutes walk away and with a week train pass, it's no big deal, especially when you take into consideration how NICE this place is... Everything was clean, the beds were fresh and comfortable, people were quiet and there was a... More

I stayed here with a few friends during King's Day this year and I had a great experience. The staff was very helpful in checking in, giving directions, and using the public transportation. Also, the hostel was very welcoming and comfortable. There was a movie night with free popcorn and snacks and the rooms were pretty good for hostel standards.... More

Although slightly further out of town, Hostelle was really easy to get to on the metro, only about 10-15 minutes from Centraal Station. It was a very clean and well decorated place and had a nice community atmosphere being all girls! There are shared showers and toilets, both of which are spacious and clean with several cubicles in each. Towels... More

I stayed in this hostel for two nights. It was peak season for armsterdamso that it was full house. I feel it is more likely a university dorm. 8girls share one room, and outside the room there are shared kitchen,toilets and bathrooms .In the night,girls gather at living room to watch movies. It is really nice feeling although we do... More

I've been to Amsterdam many a time and every time I have stayed in a hostel in the city centre it has been dirty, noisy, and with one of Amsterdam's main attractions for young travelers being drugs, staying in a city center hostel can be a little intimidating for someone who doesn't partake in those kind of activities. My friend,... More

I really liked this hostel. The female only aspect made it very quiet and relaxing. However, I could not sleep here! The beds moved a lot whenever the woman above me turned over. She didn't have to move much, and the bed still rocked. It woke me up numerous times each night, and I hardly slept the entire time I... More

I stayed a single night (eight bed dorm) at Hostelle on 17th May during our visit to Amsterdam. I am sorry to say that I got bitten by bed bugs and developed the tell tale red spots a day after my return. In addition the beds were of metal and squeaked a lot. I have stayed in many hostels in...

We have taken immediate precautions to eliminate them an prevent them from re-entering the hostel by hiring a professional company. Again, apologies for the inconvenience.... More

Female Hostel, that's what I like from this hostel. Located not far from train and metro station (Amsterdam Bljmer Arena), only 5 minutes walking distance. Around the area, there are many restaurants, shop and supermarket. The rooms are good (they gave me below bed as requested), WIFI is in very good connection, the bathroom is clean. Kitchen and its equipment... More

Stayed here for my sister's hen do. It appealed as we could use booking.com to secure the rooms so payment was on arrival (perfect if you've got one person arranging a group booking and you don't want to be out of pocket), it was all female and we were able to get exclusive use of multi bed rooms. The price... More
