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.

I booked this hostel because of its proximity to the main station, and cheap price. I was in a ten bed girls only room, which had a kitchenette, and ensuite, though the cooker was out of order(not an issue for me, I wasn't cooking). I didn't explore any of the common areas in the main hostel area. My room was... More

My friend and I stayed at Aivengo for two nights and it was great. The location is very good, just a few minutes of walk away from Dam Square. We stayed in the female only dormitory and it was very nice, spacious and clean. A towel and sheets are provided.

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
