“A very nice Hostel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

This is more a hotel than hostel, located in the museum area it is handy for many things and only 20minutes walking to the centre.
There is no kitchen and the place only does breakfast but thats OK.
Facilities are clean and modern.
It can be noisy first thing as there s a primary school next door!!

This place was great, came with 6 friends and booked a full room. It was really good and the service is friendly and super helpful. Definitely worth it if you're on a tight budget. Or just wanna spend your money in the coffee shops instead. Haha.

We where a Group, and from the photos it semed quite good as an hotel. When we got there the first thing we saw was a mice, then we found some blood on a bad and dirty socks under an other.
The food was all frozen and a morning I and my friends saw the person who was in the kitchen gathering some bread that was fallen from the floor.

And all this considering that we were paying 50 a night each so 50 x 6 = 300 a night for the room !

Right across the street from the Van Gogh Museum alright, and just a couple blocks back up the road from the Van Barlesraat stop on the #2 tram down from Centraal Station. My Small Single was indeed the tiniest room I've ever known, but it had upgrades (flat screen tv, thermostat, several electrical outlets) that bigger, more expensive rooms I've stayed in, have not had. Tiny bathroom but fabulous upgrades there as well, all shiny and chrome and tiles that are spanking clean. The mattress did seem to like sliding off towards the floor, for some reason, and the wifi was out for half the one day I was there, but once they got a new router installed everything tech-wise was good to go. I don't know what the larger rooms or communal, hostel rooms are like, but for single travelers the small singles can't be beat for good value in a central Amsterdam location. Oh, and the 5euro pre-paid breakfast buffet is a good value for the money too, although convenience had a lot to do with that decision.

I stayed in the Hostel Van Gogh for 4 nights. It has a great location, it's comfortable, young and modern. I guess the price is adjusted to the city and the quality.
However, some of the staff is completely misfit. When we arrived the chinese (?) men didn't talk/help us, only he finished whatever he was doing he spoke. Than, a blond, thin girl was reaaaaally rude with us, not looking in the eyes, looking upset and then telling us something like "but don't you hear when I'm talking?!" - just because we gave her the wrong money.
Well, if you forget about the staff, this hostel is a good choice. However, for me, their antipathy spoiled the beggining of my trip.

Really good value for money, clean rooms comfortable and had everything you needed. Staff were helpful and spoke many different languages felt very relaxed and safe, such a good location for museums. For the price it was better than I expected which is why I thought it would be useful to write a review.
