Location was perfect. Good breakfast. Hostel was not that clean, though. I made the mistake to stay in a 12 bed room. We had people walking in and out all night long. I just think it was too expensive for what that was. Not a good vibe really.

The Hostel smelt awful. The receptionist was unfriendly and unhelpful. The rooms are tiny. The stairs leading up to the hostel are dangerpus. There are permanent road works outside and the atmosphere is dire. We didnt even stay it was that bad. Seriously needs decorating. A mens only hostel. waste of my deposit. Livid to say the least.

Room Tip: Dont book here. Its awful and theres plenty of nice hotels there.

I have stayed at the heart of amsterdam hotel for the last 2 years and think this is a awesom hotel. For anyone who is going to amsterdam for the coffee shops this is the hotel for you. Its situated perfectly with a coffee shop just across the canal and loads more near by. Its clean and has friendly staff. The hotel has movie themed rooms (we stayed in pulp fiction and highlander), basically just a picture on the wall but quite cool when experimenting, lol. Would definately come back here!!

Clean hostel, in central location. For a hostel I was quite impressed with cleanliness and friendliness of staff. I usually prefer hotels for security purposes, but would stay again.

As soon as we arrived at the hotel, the first thing you noticed was the endless scaffolding surrounding the building. When we checked in our room was sweltering hot and there were men with power tools working just outside the window and on the roof. Naps are not an option in this hotel. Further more, one of our group got put in a 12 person dorm instead of the single room he booked online. When we complained the staff were completly reluctant to take any responsibility or offer any solution/compromise. Other than that, the Hotel is located perfectly and is but a 2 minute walk from the closest coffee shop.
