This place is awful. The rooms are small and there are too many beds. It gets stuffy and gross. It's also a fire hazard because there's no fire escape. The last night I stayed there, my bed had been used by someone else and unclean. The guy at the reception gave me new linens and did not offer to change... More

I have never stayed at the hotel but this is my favourite coffee shop in Amsterdam, very cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Lots of drinks to choose from, they make a delicious hot chocolate with cream! Staff are very polite and friendly. Would recommend :)

Tried to cancel booking 10 minutes after making it, due to sudden change of plans beyond my control. Was charged booking fee and €70 for room (6 bed mixed dorm) I was not able to use. Would not recommend.

Not that good, especially for the money, but Amsterdam is very expensive. Tiny, noisy, shared room. Vilest bathroom I've ever seen. Pathetic breakfast arrangements. You get what you pay for. Paid for s

It covers the essentials. Small mixed rooms with shared bathroom. Bike rental is around the block. There's a cozy coffeeshop in the first floor of the building and it is NOT connected to the hostel, which I think it's cool if you're really looking for a good time sleep at a hostel. Just as the name says so the hostel... More

We knew what to expect before going to this hostel. There are a myriad of reviews around the internet detailing just what it is like. The entry staircase is too narrow and is exceptionally steep. The staircase going up to the other floors is even narrower and steeper. The rooms are fairly small, and the beds aren't long enough for... More

I believe this hostel was way too far expensive, 52 eur per night and also other negativ things I want to mention... I 've been travelling to many hostels in Europe, and never had to pay more than 30 EUR, which the service and accomodation is really good as well. In this hostel u even can not pay with credit...

Although the service was good and informative and the wi-fi worked well, that is unfortunately where the positives end. The staircase is barely big enough to fit one person and is extremely steep and dangerous - no elevator! The 8 bed dorm that we stayed in was tiny and cramped without air conditioning. The beds were too small without railings... More
