the location is great, same as the provided assistance, :-) , the price is average, if you reach the place in hollydays, uff is difficult everywhere, and the price rise, so is a good idea reserve a room with some prelibation. the entire hostel looks old but is still in good condition. A long hot-shower at night was great! I... More

Stayed here with a friend as a last resort as we forgot to book a hostel in advance. We paid thirty euros each, by far the most expensive room I've ever stayed in in any country.. For this we received a mouldy room, a communal area that appeared to have never been cleaned, and a 'shower' comprising a pipe coming... More

Hostel Aroza is the most terrible hostel I've ever seen. The hostess is a kind woman, but that's all. The room was dirty, just as the linnen. The shower didn't work at all and the toilet wasn't clean. We regret our stay in Hostel Aroza.

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.

There were too many awful things in this hostel: where to begin? I was desperate and I needed a place to stay for a night in Amsterdam and I was looking for a hostel in the centre. 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
