You know you can't expect nothing special when it says "budget", but this was absolutely terrible. During our Erasmus we decided to visit Amsterdam. Obviously we did all arrangements really late and only this "Hostel" was our only option. Since we were 10 we stayed together in one room, that was ok. Beds and sheets were relatively clean. There were... More

Don't be fooled by the name - the amigo 'budget' hostel is actually not very cheap compared to other hostels in amsterdam which are much closer to the centre. The plus side of this hostel is that it is right next to a supermarket, tram stop and a launderette. It is however a lengthy tram ride from the city centre.... More

When we arrived at the amigo "budget" hostel in Amsterdam's"boring" quarter they insisted on charging us 10% for using credit card. My husband and I had planned a sight seeing trip of tulips Van Gogh and holocaust remembrance,however if you want to be reminded of historical atrocities of world war 2 -you can save your money and experience the atrocities...

Disgusting place- rude staff- tiny unclean rooms, dangerous lay out, rubbish location. Whole place stinks of smoke and weed. Miles away from any attraction by tram- nearest tram station over the road. The showers are a 20 foot walk down a communal corridor (even if you're in a private room) , which especially for ladies is difficult unless they are... More

There's no elevator in the place - so you haul baggage up a STEEP flight of stairs from the ground floor. Place is narrow - like a student commune. Smoking taking place outside at the entrance. Not for us

Amsterdam is really easy for common transport. We choose this hostel because of the price even ifit was a little far or downtown, but at the end, it was absolutely perfect! Clean rooms, bathroons and showers! Everything was great and with the tram, we could go wherever we wanted with the allpass for 6€/day

While cheap, this hostel is worn out and tired, needing painting. It is also poorly run. I stayed 2 nights in 1 room, then came back in the evening after a day in town to find my keycard didn't work. Talking to the guy on reception, it turned out they had moved me to another room without telling me. Also,... More

The hostel was fine for 4 nights. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. There were lockers in the room so this was good. The staff were also really helpful and I couldn't fault them at all. Downsides: the common area was really small and there wasn't much of an atmosphere. It was quite far from town about... More
