I stayed in the 20 person dorm. The room was large enough to not feel cramped but could do with power points throughout the room not just on top of the lockers by the door. Showers were a decent size and toilets were a bit cramped but were always clean. The place could have done with a communal area to... More

Stayed in the private double room. Was spacious, with a kitchen (including a fridge), ensuite and a great view. The room was 6 floors up, but it wasn't to much hassle. Due to it being a wooden structure we were woken a few times by people moving above us in the morning. As a hostel however, it wasn't very sociable... More

Comfortable, spacious room with adequate facilities, however, a man who weren't familiar with walked through our room numerous times to get to his accommodation. As we were staying in an all female dorm we would appreciated if we were informed of this arrangement. A lift would be a good addition. Over all, a good stay.

Stayed in the large dorm room. Bed's were reasonably clean and comfortable and there was ample room for luggage storage below and around the beds. Lacked power points and the safety lockers looked a little below standard (I.E. actually safe). The toilets were painstakingly small whilst the showers were passable. One notable disappointment was the lack of circulating air for... More

Aivengo Hostel have the rudest staff I have ever seen. The hostel closes the front door at 4am and only open at 6am, if the guest wants to leave or enter is not allowed, basically you are paying to stay outside or stuck in. The beds make much noise, there are no enough power outlets in the bedrooms for charging... More

Great location (close to main downtown core and train station), friendly and informative staff, but there is no real main lobby, just the front desk with small couches, so it can be boring at night/difficult to meet people. My room had a fridge in it which was amazing, as I was able to save a lot of money on meals.... More

I stayed here with my friends for my birthday for the weekend. I was not happy with my stay, the cleaner barged in at 10am complaining we had not yet cleaned, moped half of the ripped floor and then left without even supplying toilet roll! There was also 2 broken beds which me and my mother unfortunately had to sleep... More

We have stayed in the private bedroom with own bathroom for 4 days - clean, but unfortunately on the 6th floor (no elevator) and small. Nevertheless, great location and friendly staff. I would always recommend the hostel.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
