The Hostel is indeed approached by a very steep set of stairs, but not unmanageable (even with an enormous backpack). The hostel staff were very helpful and friendly, and always around to help you find good things to go see. Our room was small but comfy, clean and functional - good value for money. The toilet / shower was shared... More

The first thing you see from the hostel are the drunk people thrown on the highly-dangerous stairs; after that you get to a dirty reception with used plates laying everywhere. I had a problem right from the beginning when the guy at the reception didn't let me pay by card because he didn't trust my ID, so I had to... More

It's a small hostel a bit outside the city centre but the location is ok, quiet and near the park and a station. It doesn't have kitchen nor a common area except for the reception, where there are some tables, tv and a fridge to keep your stuff. The room however was very clean,quite big, with lockers and a washing... More

I booked this hostel for 4 days, this was the starting point of a 6 week trip. The first thing you will notice, apart from the seriously steep and narrow stairs leading to the lobby, is that it's central but not that central, most days you'll need to catch Tram 9 towards Centraal to get to the center (or walk...

In a place as expensive as Amsterdam you can only be thrilled about a place that charges less than $50/night and has a bus station next door! Service here is great-Soufiane got my taxi the last day in time for me to make the last train at Central Station. A truly accommodating bunch.

The amigo hostel removed the payment for the first night from our account without a word of warning. However, as this money was not there, our whole booking was cancelled and we were told that the hostel was now full. We had three of the original four nights booked now and were told initially that we would be sleeping in... More

Location was a bit far out although easy transport links in the city made it easy to get to town. Very steep entrance steps and many flights although a standard hostel the staff made it an enjoyable experience, they were a great laugh and very helpful.

Amigo Budget Hostel is a value for money stay. The staff is friendly and accommodating. They are responsive and adjusting to any changes in the booking. However the atmosphere is not very social and the interaction levels between tourists is minimal.The bathrooms and corridors are too compact and the stairs too steep for a drunk person to climb.
