5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2014

A great surprise to find in Amsterdam , the place is clean , cozy, very friendly with a great option to cook by yourself , they have once a week an evening surprise(dinner,film,etc) at the living room
The bedrooms are ok with warm beds . Is great for all kind of travelers and in a quiet neighborhood but close to everything . They rent bikes for !half the price!!!
Thanks guys for a really nice stay

We stayed for 7 nights including New Years. At other hostels we found it hard to meet people due to a number of reasons. We met really great people here, including some of the staff. This ensured that we had a wonderful New Years surrounded by new friends.

We had a double room which really felt like home for the week. The staff were knowledgeable and really went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. There were organised activities most nights (pasta night, cocktail nights etc) that made it easier to meet people.

Loved everything about our stay here (particularly Joop the Cocomama cat). Thanks for a fantastic New Years - will definitely come back to visit.

Room Tip: Book a double room in advance (there are only 4).

Probably the best hostel I have stayed at, clean, fun, awesome service, made Amsterdam feel like home. I was sick for 3 days and one of the staff (Elina) made me tea and looked out for me. An amazing place with amazing staff will go next time I'm in Amsterdam.

Good for young, budget traveller with small shared dorms and communal kitchen. Welcoming staff and an ok location. Older travellers looking for less buzz may prefer alternatives, although it suited us for 2 nights.

The staff was wonderful, the beds were comfy, the room was clean and the hostel had a good location. Add WI-FI everywhere and all the services you might need (kitchen, towels, etc.); what more to ask from a hostel? :)

This place was awesome: friendly helpful staff who like to laugh, a communal area to mingle and have dinner together, cosy warm rooms, security lockers, clean and in a lovely part of Amsterdam (the area where I'd want a house). For those who like to cook they stock up on spices and ingredients for all to use. I stayed here and in a different hotel afterwards, and there's just no comparison. This place is the shiznit and where I'll want to stay again when I return to the city.

I guess that is the best way to put it! it definitely felt like being at home, the place is unbelievably cosy and home like, the staff friendly and always ready to help you out and the whole experience just felt great! all the people we met just got drawn into this atmosphere, and I would say its probably the best hostel i have ever stayed at. Highly recommended, 6 out of 5 stars!!
