Location is the only good point. No communal room to meet anyone. Bathroom is far too small for 6 ppl. Noisy at night. Best area of the hostel is taken up by an abundance rental bikes that never get used the terrace. Charged by the bag to leave bag at reception after checkout. Workers don't seam to be too friendly.... More

This hostel is located in a perfect part of town, near a lot of the museums, bars and restaurants. The rooms are basic and furnishings could be better but the staff are very helpful and helped me when needed.

The hostel is in a great location but that's about it. The room I'm in is very cramped and has a low ceiling which makes getting in to the top bunk a little difficult if you don't want to bash your head in. I stayed in the third floor so I had no wifi signal and had to sit in... More

Six of us stayed in a 6 bed private room here for 2 nights in April 2015. The room was small and the bathroom tiny however it wasn't a huge problem as we didn't spend a lot of time in the room. The location is fantastic,in the middle of all the action and so easily accessible from the airport. The... More

I was traveling to Amsterdam with a group of students. I wasn't happy with the hostel. We had a room for six. When we came into the room some of the beds weren't ready and I was having the feeling that other beds also weren't clean. Room was very small, but that's okay for a hostel. I was very disappointed... More

Me and my friend booked a room in a mixed dorm. We booked about a week in advance so quite last minute. I thought it was a bit pricey for what you get. Our room was a bit stuffy as it was 6 to a room and the bathroom had no ventilation. If you left the bathroom door open the... More

Really friendly and helpful staff, nice little balcony behind the desk - no bud nor booze allowed but that isn't really of concern as downstairs, there's is an easy going coffee shop called Rookie's. The weed is good and the atmosphere is relaxed - good music! The rooms are standard, no complaints about anything really. Location wise, it's about a... More
