I decided to have an overnight adventure in Amsterdam and I had no prior reservations in any hotel or hostel. Good thing that I was able to find Hostel Aroza in Nieuwendijk, quite near the Centraal Train Station. The rate is only 30 euro per night and it was definitely a good deal considering Amsterdam is quite expensive. The view... More

Rooms relatively clean and spacious. However, owner is constantly drunk and/or high, so don't expect to get any help with issues you may have. Having said that, reception staff always friendly. Drinks relatively cheap, too. Worth the price for location alone, though.

I came across this one and luckily I could book a room for one night. I wasn't expecting too much from this hostel,... More

Hstel Aroza is the perfect location for exploring the central part of Amsterdam. I stayed with a friend for the weekend and would definitely stay again. Beds were comfortable and although there was no wifi in the bedrooms, there was downstairs and wasn't an issue. Close to all amenities. Walking distance to everything. Bathrooms clean enough, after all the negative... More

A friend and I stayed at Aroza Hostel in November 2013 as we spent a couple of days in Amsterdam. The location of the hostel was perfect: it was located on Nieuwendijk, one of the main streets with supermarkets, restaurants and coffee shops, and only a five minute walk from Centraal Station. That's probably the only positive thing about the... More

I stayed in Aroza Hostel with a lad I was seeing in summer, at the beginning of our European Adventure of 2013 Inter-railing. Staying at Aroza in Amsterdam was a brilliant way to start our trip and I wouldn't have done it any differently. The staff were friendly and so were the usual guests that basically live there, talk to... More

- Great Location - Very friendly staff - Good for our group as there were 8 of us so we had a dorm to ourselves - Not the best room cleanliness - Crap bathroom - wifi works in the reception area only, which isn't really an issue - half decent breakfast of toast, and good coffee

I stayed in an 8 bed girls only room with 1 of my friends and it has a lovely little sun trap terrace out the window where we could smoke. Downstairs was a small smoking area (6 or so people), a large... More
