“Great place!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

We stayed on the hotel side of the place and it was great - staff available 24 hours, great location in the museum district, easy to get around to other places as well. We also rented bikes from them and they were perfect for exploring the city. Would stay here again for sure!

As a group of 6, we decided to visit Amsterdam. This hotel was one of the first we considered because of how cheap it was.

Despite the fact that it's cheap, this hotel is spotlessly clean!

It is only a couple of minutes away from the action. Every night, I would walk back, but you could get the tram if you're not a fan of cardio.

10/10 - would visit again

We stayed on the hostel side in a private room and could not believe how nice it was for a 'hostel'. In my opinion it was more like a hotel! Clean and modern, fresh towels when you needed them. The shower room was fab! The beds were comfy and we slept very well.
We were there for three days and didn't take a tram or bus anywhere in the city as walked everywhere - a great location. I would definitely recommend to others and visit again.
Excellent value and would certainly come again!

I stayed here for a couple of nights in the 6-bed dorm, and it really had exceeded my expectations for a hostel. It was really cozy and comfortable, not to mention extremely clean. The location is fantastic, easily accessible to almost anywhere in Amsterdam. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, and they are more than happy to recommend you places to go and to eat. The five euro breakfast was sumptuous and well worth the money. Need I say more?

We stayed in the hotel (there's also a hostel) for 4 nights. The room was clean and comfortable. Lovely big shower. The all you can eat buffet breakfast for €5 (in advance, it's €6.50 on the day) is excellent value with lots of choice and fantastic coffee. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The location is great, right opposite the Museumplein and a few minutes walk from the Concertgebouw concert hall (the reason for our visit was to attend to two concerts). There are tram stops opposite the hotel for two trams that go to the centre. The only niggle was the beds which were very soft so didn't suit us oldies used to a firm orthopaedic mattress! If we visited Amsterdam again we would definitely stay at the Van Gogh again. Excellent value and location.

We stayed in the Hostel shared room. The location is excellent (especially if you want to do the museums) and also quite close to Leidserplein - a cool place to hang out. The rooms are very clean, bathrooms modern and tidy, staff very helpful, 5 Euro breakfast fantastic.

Myself and 5 friends visited in late February for 5 nights and shared a dorm room. The dorm room was fairly spacious and very clean, each of the 6 beds had clean sheets and mattress' weren't bad either! The bathroom was lovely, with a huge walk in shower, however this became an issue with 6 of us using it on a daily basis it become damp smelling. Each bed had its own safe which you could program with your own code and use to store valuables in, very handy when you're in a foreign country. It cost us roughly 600 Euros for our visit, which we believe was good value for money, considering some of the other options available for a similar price. Would definitely consider using it again if we visited.
