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...

Me and a friend stayed here for 5 nights in November, Thursday to the following Tuesday. After reading some of the trip advisor reviews for this place I was a bit hesitant to stay here, however my worries could not have been more misplaced. The hostel itself is a good 40 minute walk (if you know where you're going) from... More

The place is far away from next to all sights of the city. Has ridiculously steep stairs and private room where we stayed lacked everything except walls and two beds. Wouldn't recommend to stay there, as the private room is full of bed bugs. Maybe the whole place is or will be infected soon. Had to spent whole night to... More

I stayed here in October 2014 after having booked over a week in advance. On arrival, my friend and I were told we would be in different rooms for the first night because they had made a mistake in their bookings (a sheet of paper with names crossed and rubbed out). Therefore I was in the 10 bed mixed dorm... More

The hostel cancelled my reservation out of the blue just two days before my arrival. I noticed that the last review of this hotel was alike.. So this wasn't their first time doing so. The booking confirmation that I got from the hostel earlier said that if the credit card isn't valid they will inform about it a week earlier... More

I didn't stay in this hostel actually... I wanted, but the hostel cancelled my reservation just 10 hours BEFORE the check in... By the time the cancellation e-mail arrived two of our friends were already on their way from Germany to Amsterdam... We got desperate because we were at least in our homes but our friends were already on their... More

After reading reviews and upon first arrival we were a bit skeptical - The stairs do look daunting and there was a crowd at the top watching us climb up as they smoked. We arrived before we could check in but could keep our bags in the luggage room while we went off to explore. Its a good location not... More
