Just came back from a 4 night stay at the amigo budget hostel! Don't get me wrong it was a HOSTEL, not a hotel, so anyone expecting luxury shouldn't book this accommodation! It's basic but it does the job, it cost us £80 each per person for 4 nights so well worth the money in my opinion! We travelled in... More

It's a non smokers hostel but you have always people on the stairs smoking. The rooms for 8 people are small, the lockers are very small too, inside the room you have one shower in a small division and a washbasin inside the room. To go to the toilet you need to get out of the room. The hostel has... More

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
