After reading a few reviews I was very apprehensive but I was pleasantly surprised. There isn't really a common room and the bathroom STUNK but the location was perfect and the rooms were good. They also have good luggage lockers. The staff were also all really friendly!

I am very happy with the White Tulip hostel Pros: - it's affordable!! Staying for 4 days/3 nights costed me little over 100 euros, excellent value for money - central location, you can go out the door, and literally hold your breath until you reach the first prostitute in the Red Light district - is clean, the cleaning is done...

The White Tulip has an unbeatable location, and it's easy to meet fellow travellers. Beds were clean and ready upon arrival. A little bit noisy and washrooms were stuffy. However the price was reasonable for Amsterdam during peak season. Overall a good stay if you want an affordable short stay.

The hostel was a but tired, in need of repainting. The walls were just grubby and that did let it down. However we has a great stay. It's right in the red light district with everything you could want only meters away. This is not a hostel for light sleepers. The street is a busy street with lots of nightlife,... More

Good atmosphere with friendly staff, centrally located and each bed is equipped with a Powerpoint which is handy! The location was a bit too much for us... Being situated at the beginning of the Red Light District meant there was constantly loud music, yelling and screaming which resulted in little sleep... Good for a short stay but not for a... More

We arrived late to Amsterdam, and White Tulip was the only place with availability. We checked into our dorm room, set out bags down, and ran out to get a bite to eat. We came back to the room about 2 hours later, and found that rats had chewed through our luggage to get at a pack of crackers one... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with friends (7 males). Hostel is very cramped and untidy and there are just enough toilets to serve those in need. The church next door starts ringing its bells at 8am and does not really help if you want to sleep in. My guess is that you can probably do better with the same money,... More

The hostel is in a really good location but the price was too much. It is a really small place and if you have big bags that will be a problem. The bathrooms are fine and you have all the coffee shops and places to go really close to it. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. The... More

I had a great stay here and met a great bunch of travelers. The location was great, people were awesome, and the discounts included with the room at the irish pub and the waffle place were great. The only annoyances were that since it was a long weekend, the bed prices went up to 45 euros a night and the... More
