This vibrant and very clean hostel is located very close to Centraal Station on Spuistraat (5 minute walk) and about 10 minutes from Dam Square (city center). It is well maintained, clean, and has a multilingual and very helpful staff. The rooms are large and spacious and have lockers. The artwork in the rooms is a nice touch and the... More

Booked the private twin room for myself and the missus hoping for an affordable accommodation that was still comfortable but unfortunately this one fell a bit below our expectations. It was on the very top floor which is up six flights of stairs. Location is great which is the best thing about the hostel. Other than that if we are... More

A good hostel in a calm area close to the central station. We stayed in a twin room on the sixth floor, watch out for steep stairs, and plenty of them. We had a mouse in our room and when approaching the staff about the little rodent we got no reaction. It might be usual, judging from the reaction, but... More

We stayed in the private double room on the top floor and I've never seen a better room in a hostel before. Better than an expensive hotel and very reasonable priced. Room is huge and beautiful, lovely views and a mini balcony. Also has an en suite bathroom and limited kitchen facilities but you're across the hall from a modern... More

The abusive proprietor of this hostel abruptly canceled my reservation and kicked me out simply because I politely asked to pay for one night at a time. He didn't want to deal with me and just said "I'm canceling your reservation, you can go somewhere else." This strange, cramped hostel only has two large dorm rooms, with nothing else --... More

I stayed in a 20 bed mixed dorm with some of my friends. The rooms were clean and spacious. The layout of the rooms meant they were very social and you got to meet lots of people during your stay. There was good wifi in the rooms and plugs to charge your phones. The bathrooms were shared and basic and... More

The room itself (10 bed female dorm) was fine, one shared bathroom, great view, spacious and comfortable. However, the guy on reception was horrible. He charged one of our party £15 more than the rest of us and later when we checked out on the 8th of August he demanded we all pay an extra £15 each. When we refused,... More

The facilities in Aivengo were the worst out of all the hostels I stayed in on my holiday. There are only two showers downstairs, and from what I could see, these showers were for 40 people to use. There was a 'kitchen' right next to the toilets which consisted of only a refrigerator and a microwave. There were some small... More

The private double is absolutely the nicest room - hotel or hostel- I have stayed in in Europe. So cool! Other than check in/check out I had 0 interaction with staff. Location is unbeatable. Seriously, if you are traveling with your significant other/ a friend you don't mid sharing a bed with, get the private double!
