The whole place is small with little access to fresh air. I stayed in a small 4 beds dorm with no access to fresh air (just a split type AC). The common room is not much better and the breakfast is very basic. I didn't see any lockers. The price wasn't that cheap, but it was the cheapest option given... More

The room was the size of a closet and the doubleroom we had was with bunkbeds. We were not informed that their definition of a doubleroom included a bunkbed. The bathroom was the size of a stamp and a shower basically took place standing in the toilet. Apart from that the bathrom was dirty and there was no hot water... More

The staff there are very friendly and helpful. The cleanliness and comfort of the room/bed are better than expected. But of course don't expect too much. You get what you paid for. All I needed was a clean room/bed to sleep for 2 nights. I love the surrounding neighbourhood. It's close to Sarphati market. And there is a street market... More

I was very willing to give this hotel a 3-3.5 star rating when I got home. However, after checking my bank account, I saw that they had charged my card TWICE for a ridiculous fee. I'm now out over half of my pay check for 10 days because they didn't tell me they would be holding money just in case... More

DO NOT STAY HERE. The rooms are small and very dirty. The bathrooms are even worse. There is no place to store or lock your belongings. Even the free breakfast they promote is just a bag of sliced bread, jar of peanut butter, and jar of jelly. While we stayed here the toilet connected to our room overflowed and flooded... More

First day in the Netherlands. Came from Australia. This is a tourist area, so everything is bloody expensive. After trawling the streets till my legs hurt, j found sarphati. They checked me in late at night, and gave me a clean bed with fresh sheets and a clean towel, all for €10. I had the whole dorm to myself, so... More

Good hostel overall. Plus side: interesting and handy location, very pleasant and helpful staff, free breakfast, house cat and kittens. Down side: cramped rooms, and all a bit frayed around the edges.
