i would like to thank them on a great stay. although the stairs to get in are more like climbing a ladder, the room was nice, beds were comfy and bathroom was quite luxurious. i would also like to thank the staff for being very helpful and especially Rachid for helping us sort out our boarding passes for the plane....

Hostel is located in central Amsterdam, despite not being near 'Central Station' itself. The rooms were very clean and the staff kept the bathrooms clean daily. The stairs were very steep and narrow although the staff were very happy to help with taking luggage to and from our rooms. The wifi worked very well in the rooms. Staff were knowledgeable... More

I was a bit weary at first but it's really not that bad. It's a clean hostel, the beds were made and the bathroom was clean. The hostel is very central, about a 2 minute walk from Dam Square. Don't be fooled by the name "Central Station" because it's about a 15min walk from the station. The wifi is strong... More

Dirty bathrooms, beds were uncomfortable, wifi didn't work at all, they put me in a bedroom with 9 dudes (I'm a girl). There's no common area, so you don't get to meet the travelers except for the ones in your room. Staff was rude. The only thing that was good was the location - but that's all.

After spending over an hour to find the hostel due to there being no signs or indications to where the hostel was, we eventually walked past a dark alley way with dodgey gates where it was. We then had to carry our things up vertical stairs to be met by a horrible man who was extremely rude to me and... More

Besides the unsafe angle of the stairs and the general poor appearance, there were leaks in the roof in our rooms, the beds were small and the bathroom lacked ventilation. There is no common room, no real services to speak of and for the price it's pretty sorry. Would no recommend.

Whilst the hostel was in an ideal area, the lack of a kitchen for making proper meals made our trip a lot more expensive than it necessarily needed to be. Whilst the rooms were clean, they did get very stuffy and therefore at times it was very difficult to sleep. The fact the rooms are shared bathrooms means that at... More

We stayed in 4 bed dorm room and had our own bathroom/shower which was nice. The staff was very helpful and polite. It is located on 2nd floor above shops & restaurants on the block just between Dam Square & the red light district bars. Couldn't ask for better location! The only con is very steep stairs that make drunk... More
