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.

We had a very pleasant stay for two nights. It is an excellent value for money. It is a five minutes walk from the station and everything is literally within a walking distance. It is a nice place to stay in with friends or siblings. I definitely recommend it and I will stay there in my future visits to Amsterdam.

A nice cheap hostel. Was a bit hesitant about staying in a 20 bed dorm but was good. Showers were great. Only complaint I have is that they left the door to the dorm open from 9am letting noise from reception in and making it hard to sleep in. So bring your earplugs/eyemask. Also note the lock out 4-6am. They... More

Stayed there with a friend for two nights on a weekend in 20 bed dorm. Surprisingly good sleeping :) The location is great and will get good value for your money. We parked our car at www.parkingcentrumoosterdok.nl near the central railway station for 10€ per 24h and then walked the short distance to the Aivengo. I would stay again.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
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.
