Came to this coffeeshop everyday of my four day stay with my girlfriend. Nice weed, good coffees, friendly staff and good prices. I would highly recommend this place for a chilled out smoke. Smoke a prerolled power plant spliff in the morning and youll get a nice relaxed but active feeling over the day :) peace x

Mixed group of 3 stayed here for 6 nights in an 8 bed dorm - another group of 3 also in the dorm for the same duration. Room is slightly cramped but only needed it to sleep any way. Room, beds and bathroom were perfectly clean at the start but the bathroom floor got quite unsanitary by the last couple... More

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
