We had a brilliant time in Amsterdam and part of this was down to Aivengo Hostel. We arrived before the advertised check in time but were shown straight to our room. The lady who showed us in was very friendly and pleasant. We stayed in a large 20 bed dorm on the bottom floor. The beds were pretty comfy and... More

Firstly I just want to say, don't let the review below put you off of this great hostel. So many people think that they can get away with paying for one bed and then don't like it when they're told that two people can't stay and it's not fair to the owners! Please read my review and decide for yourself!... More

I stayed here two nights before new years because the price was right. Decent, clean accommodations but one staff member was HORRIBLE to my girlfriend and I. He accused us of "stealing" a bed because my girlfriend arrived at 6 am, said she was meeting me here and that she will be checking in once she was allowed to check... More

Dear customer, Thank you for your review. You were staying in our hostel and paid for two beds. Next night you took just one bed and were told that its not possible to share it. However your girlfriend came back later and simply stayed there with you. Yes, it is stealing, because other travellers paid for theirs beds. Things like... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Aivengo. The location is perfect, close to the canals and Jordaan which is a lovely area and just a few minutes away from Dam. I stayed in a room with ten beds on the 4th floor and the ambience between all the other guest was friendly and respectful. Good size lockers free of charge... More

Having never stayed in a hostel before this one Deffinatly put me at easy. We had a 10 bed female dorm and it was really nice spacious, had our own little kitchen which was really handy. Location was really good. I plan to come back in October :)

we found the hostel very easily since it's just a few hundreds meters away from Amsterdam's central station. our room was not ready yet, but they kindly let us leave our luggage close to the main desk, even if we found them to be unattended when we got back. but for this issue, what left us without words (besides the...

Thought it was a bit over priced for what we got. If you get the four bed room you are just down the road from the actual hostel which is actually quite nice, although you don't meet any other people. All very clean and wifi was good. Sure there are better hostels around

The position of this hostel was really good, especially if you come in amsterdam by train. But this is an hostel only for leave the bag, because if you want to sleep there, forget it. I think that a prison is more comfortable.

This is quite simply the least inviting place I have ever stayed in, including three of Amsterdam's other budget hostels. That is to say I had low expectations but was still let down. Why? There is literally nowhere to relax (the "reception" has two 2-seat couches and 2 stools by PCs for the 40 guests) and the rooms are freezing,... More

Had a brilliant stay at Hostel Aivengo, the location is superb, literally round the corner from Centraal Station and a few minutes walk from Dam Square. The guy that checked us in was very nice and provided us with a city map and highlighted numerous Amsterdam attractions. Due to it being low season we were upgraded free of charge to... More
