Myself, along with two other girls stayed here during the 2nd week of July, and it was our first stop over whilst 'Interrailing' through Europe. We received a warm welcome and good information about the hostel and their rules as such. Our eight bed dorm was full of backpackers from Brazil, England and Northern Ireland (Great way to meet new... More

This hostel was a complete rip off, expensive and very poor quality. It's clear the hostel is just aiming for the bare minimum- no common area, no kitchen, wifi only really works in bar under hostel. Bathrooms are unclean and difficult- there was absolutely nowhere to hang towels/clothes in the showers. Beds seem clean. Rooms cramped and don't get cleaned... More

The location is right on the border of the red light district and it has its own 'smoking room' but the rooms were cramped, old and generally dirty with little security for your stuff. I'd only stay here again if I really had to. Beds were uncomfortable and they pack as many beds as can possibly fit into a room.

My friends and I stayed at this hostel for 3 days. The location was great as it was close to central station, the centre of Amsterdam and was in the heart of the red light district but the hostel itself was pretty average. We had to pay a ridiculous price because of kings day which sucked but went with it... More

Positive: Great location in the middle of everything Reasonable cost - though I think renting a flat works out cheaper Had quad rooms - actually very spacious and bunk beds are comfortable Negative: Had no soap in dispensers and towels are not provided so take your own Early check out - they make sure you leave by 10.00 am

I have visited Amsterdam numerous times for short trips with the lads. Every time I visit I stay here, extremely good value. I always book the private rooms, I have never stayed in the shared dorms. The rooms have always been clean and so are the bathrooms. The location is absolutely perfect. The staff can be a bit moody sometimes... More

Having never stayed in a hostel before I wasn't expecting much but this was good. Great location, clean rooms and bedding and a newly refurbished bathroom. We had a room for 4 and there was plenty of room. Staff were polite and helpful when asked but not in your face. I'm sure food was ok but there are more picturesque... More

The rooms themselves are nice, a great view of the canal and lockers, but chairs to get to the top bunks instead of ladders and small and few bathrooms; not uncommon to have to shower on the floor above or below. Never did get the wifi to work, bar had cheap drinks and food but don't have high expectations for... More

I wasn't expecting much from this hostel, but it was better than I expected, its location is minutes away from central station, dam square and the red light district, the staff were friendly and helpful, and it had a nice atmosphere. my bed and room was fine, no problem, I have nothing to complain about.

Great location in RLD and easy to get to. VERY RUDE STAFF, but then again, I've been to several hostels in AMS RLD and they were almost all pretty rude and arrogant! This place is secure, you have to keep their business card with you and wave it for them to buzz you in. Gets annoying. Smoking room was cool,... More
