First you must climb the steepest stairs I've ever to get up to the reception. then another or two of your on a higher level. The rooms are also freezing. The blanket they supply is not enough. also the luggage room is stupidly tiny hardly fits 5 bags. Do not recommend.

I have just come back from a two-night stay at this hostel with friends. We stayed in a four bed dorm which was adequate. The sheets were clean, the plugs worked and the room was a good size. This hostel is a little out of the way but is right on top of line 9 (tram). If you are planning... More

I've stayed in more than 15 hostels in Europe and this had by far the worst service. We arrived around noon and they said we couldn't check-in until 2 pm - fine for us. But the next day we saw a group that arrived at the same hour and they let them in. Mistake #1 When they let us leave... More

Hostel just for the night. Location not so great and the entrance is a bit creepy... Polite staff. We went for a music festival and was what we were looking for. Toilets were clean. Best option to hire a bike and leave it in the entrance there's a lock.

Let me tell you a story about the exquisite Amigo Budget Hostel. One day, the travelers booked a stay in a room at a hostel on the outskirts of town. Little did they know that the building would be in the middle of nowhere. After a lengthy bus ride, our three protagonists finally made their way to the building's sign,... More

I spent in that hostel around 3 weeks and I can easily say the staff was nice with us, and always tried to help. They have a daily cleaning service (very important thing, trust me). The hostel is quite big, as most of the rooms. It's not expensive and you can easily reach the centre of Amsterdam. The tram-bus stop... More

Great hostel, organised and reasonably clean. The hostel staff are very friendly and easy to deal with. We stayed in a 6-bed room, 5 of us. Sometimes there was some issue with availability of toilets, but the friendly owner always helped us in redirecting to another bathroom. Bathrooms could be much cleaner. I didn’t try the breakfast, but it is... More

From the reviews of this hostel I was expecting something not so good. Just ok. But what we got was something completely absurd. We were two females. We arrived at around 3 pm. We were going to check in but the guy at the counter was talking with another guys and doing other things at the same time. So much... More

Yes the stairs will kill your legs the first few times and you may need a hand to get your luggage up and down, but overall this is a pretty good hostel. The staff are great, the lobby (though small) is always accommodating and often has a film on and everything is kept clean as much as possible. With hostels... More

Let me set the scene. It's 11pm on Friday evening and 6 of us have just landed in Amsterdam for ADE festival. We had booked the aptly names Amigo Budget Hostel, knowing full well we were likely to be getting exactly what we had paid for, but having travelled a lot all over the world, expecting a bare minimum level...
