The room I was in had 8 beds and a bathroom, but it was very small. The kitchen is the same size of the bedroom. The coffee was good, had bread, peanut butter, jelly, tea and coffee. The hotel is well-located, very close to the museums and the "I amsterdam" sign, but a little far from the city center. (you... More

the rooms and passages are small and the room i stayed in only had one plug. breakfast is only coffee and toast but included in the price. chilled vibe and the people are helpful. good wifi. a bit far to walk to city centre, consider taking the tram.

We liked the location--really close to the museums and Vondelpark, and although it's not right downtown, it's within easy walking distance of the town center (we found it pretty easy to walk just about anywhere). If you're expecting a deluxe experience, look elsewhere, but you won't find friendlier staff anywhere! I had a nice time. Plus, the wi-fi worked really... More

They tried to stole our money from the credit card. basically they cancelled our reservation one day before (without telling us) because they tried to take all the amount from the credit card and not only the deposit (that they claimed they didn't have). At the end they gave us the deposit in cash before we called the police. STAY... More

This hostel is ideal if you're a budget traveler and you want a cheap place close to Museumsplatz. The other hostel I normally stay at was booked, and this place offered dirt cheap prices in the spring that were definitely hard to beat. The layout of the lounge is weird, and the beds are really noisy, so I wouldn't stay... More

Excellent staff, daily cleaning of rooms and multiple cleaning of toilets per day. It was minutes’ walk away from the famous Concertgebouw, Rijksmuseum, and the newly refurbished city museum. Vondelpark is just a few more minutes away. The van Gogh museum is also in the area but is closed until April 2013. All in all, very convenient location, especially if... More

This was my first time staying in a hostel and after the experience I swore it would be my last. The location is super far from the town centre so I did a lot of walking. I don't mind this because at the end of four days I knew Amsterdam like the back of my hand. The room I was... More

We were promised that the hotel was in the city centre - this is no the case at all. The hotel is a good 45 minute walk to the centre of town. We turned up and were told that the price we had booked it for was wrong and we had to pay extra. They told us that emails were... More

We turned up fairly late (around 11pm) having driven over from Bath that day and were met with the news that there had been a mistake with our booking, and that they were really but we were being moved to a private four person dorm instead of a 12 person dorm (there were 4 of us).
