The location is good for traveling, however this hotel is not comfortable for staying, everything is dirty and old. If you care about cleaning and noise, better to select another hotel.

So this hostel has a pretty bad reputation, but only by those who have missed the point. I spent four days here with the intention of experiencing Amsterdam the way it should and this hostel was what i needed. (to "mong" out) a place to go chill out and then get up and go and since this hostel is situated... More

It's close to many restaurants, bars and coffee shops. However we did use a bicycle ride to get to Red Light District as frankly we didn't want to walk and we're all pretty... More
