ZERO Stars across the board. As a native New Yorker, strongly recommending that you AVOID this nasty place and search for other hostels in our City or in the outer boroughs. First of all, is it Jazz on Amsterdam or is it called FIT Hotel? - and it's not a Hotel - property doesn't share the qualities of a standard... More

We only stayed at this hostel for two nights, the first night was good but the second one was terrible and completely ruined my opinion of this hostel. When we arrived we were told that they had over booked and that they did not have any of the two person dorms that we had booked available. We couldn't believe our... More

The rooms were dirty, the facilyties too. Staff is unfriendly and the make you from 40 up to 75 dollars a night. The money wasn´t worth the stay in this place at all. As a special topping I found som strangers hairs on my pillow

Spend only one night here. The location is fantastic. Easy access to the subway and bus stops. The staff seemed a bit standoff-ish. The people who stay there are friendly, improves the ambiance. Breakfast is pretty sketchy - and the bagels were hard as rock :)

The web page says, "Small lockers for valuables in every room." My room had none. You can't say you provide it, and then not do so. Other than that, it was fine, and clean. I can't confirm that there was hot water, though, which seems to be a frequent complaint. The "“VACATE notice posted:Do not Enter building-Conditions Perilous to Life”... More

I was freak out before I came to this hostel as i read a lot of negative reviews about the hostel. I arrived the hostel at night and have 2 guys helped me with my super duper heavy luggage. They are quite helpful during the 10 nights I stayed there. They only have bagels for breakfast, and you have to... More

I reserved two nights but wrote v. early in the morning of my arrival to say due to travel problems I was unlikely to make that evening but would still be arriving the next morning. Was expecting them to charge for the missed night but wanted to warn I would still be wanting the second night. Arrived the next morning... More

We tried Jazz on Amsterdam because we'd stayed at other Jazz hostels and had been pleased with their accommodations. Unfortunately I cannot say the same for Jazz on Amsterdam. The place was run down and bare bones, to say the least. The beds were hideously uncomfortable IKEA affairs with mattresses so thin I hesitate to even call them that. The... More
