This is a small and efficient hostel with a great location for the young budget traveler in Amsterdam. Very near to the train station, a grocery store, the Dam and the redlight district. Big rooms (20 beds), so noisy and bright, but what do you expect in an Amsterdam hostel? Hopefully not much sleep. Otherwise, the Aivengo is clean and... More

I really enjoyed my stay at Aivengo Youth Hostel. The hostel is located just a 3 minute walk from the central station, and is close to coffee shops, restaurants and just a ten minute walk from the red light district. The hostel offers two computers with free internet access and has a very friendly atmosphere. The Aivengo Youth Hostel has... More

Its a 7 minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal station and you dont have to take a boat so that is really convenient. We stayed in a 4 bed private ensuite room which was in another premises on the next street. The room was nice clean and big. The only problem was that there is no proper kitchen... just a small...

I went with two friends for a weekend as we got cheap flights and wanted a cheap but central place to stay. The directions we were provided with were brilliant, only 5 mins walk from Dam Sqaure and Centraal Station, the location is central without being too rowdy. The staff on reception were always friendly and helpful, providing us with... More

I stayed in Aivengo Youth Hostel by myself for 4 nights in a big female dorm that was actually in another building next to the main hostel. You had to climb up the narrow staircase to the top floor. The dorm was rather armylike but the view from the window was beautiful and justified the climbing! There was only one... More

A group of 10 of us stayed in the private rooms (4, 4 and 2) which resulted in us staying in a seperate building from the main hostel which we had all to ourselves. The rooms were pretty clean, large but very basic. The mattress's (on bunkbeds) were extremely uncomfortable (metal springs!) and each person was provided with a small... More

The 2005 "Europe on a Shoestring" call this hostel something else, but it's the same address, presumably under new management. In the middle of summer, most hostels in Amsterdam fill up quickly, with some people booking weeks at a time. The Aivengo is a little further from the train station/downtown than other hostels, so it might often have more availability,... More
