I stayed here for 2 nights, with a large group of friends. While the rooms are clean enough we found it a lot of effort staying here, having to move rooms for the second night, and if we had've extended our stay, we would have had to move again. The staff seemed friendly and the facilities were again fine but... More

Super cheap, excellent location just 10 mins from station/5 from Dam square, staff very polite and always helpful. Would not recommend for elderly tourists as the steps are incredibly narrow and a fall from the 4th floor would be lethal. Other than that everything absolutely perfect!!!

Thing is it is located in such a great place, you have access to most of the attractions, walking distance to and from Amsterdam Centraal and there is a tram stop in front of the hotel. Cons, well, safety is one, like a comment mention anyone can access in the dorm area (not directly inside dorm rooms unless you leave... More

Woke up one night at 2:30am to a hand above my face attempting to steal my jacket which was next to my head! This was one of the most scariest life experiences I have ever had. The security allow access for anyone to enter the rooms from the street. I watched as this person moved from bed to bed in... More

The hostel was located in a very good location almost in the Dam Square. The cafe downstairs was nice with relatively cheap prices. However, one of the receptionists (the morning shift) was very rude and unfriendly. The hostel would be ok if you are willing to use just for a sleep, but I guess you can find some other better...

For a hostel, this is a very clean and well run place. The rooms are very small and cramped but it is a hostel (the name is a bit misleading) and the prices do reflect that. We stayed 4 nights in an 8 bed dorm, we pretty much only used the room for sleeping and showering so the limited space... More

DON'T STAY HERE.The owner of the hostel was completly unreasonable and unfriendly. Two of the people on our trip had rung up several months before and had been quoted the same price for four of us for two nights. When we arrived the price suddenly went up by 50% for no reason. The explanation offered to us was that is... More

Good location, cheap cafe downstairs that gives out plenty of coupons. Near everything you want to do. I stayed in a room of 8. There was a room with two beds that had some personal space. My actual bed was in a room of 6 cramped bunk beds. There was no personal space and no room to even walk around... More
