“Clean, comfortable and great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

We stayed here for 2 nights in Room 23 which is the Men in Black Room. All the rooms are movie themed and our room had 2 bunk beds which were really comfortable and clean. The rooms are basic but neat and tidy. The bathrooms are quite modern, the toilet itself strangely faced the wall and your knees are up against the wall. The shower was great and plenty of water. By the head on the bunk bed there is a handy little area with a shelf, electical socket and a light. There was 4 safes in our room which were big and could accommodate most bags and it is a €5 deposit (great). The breakfast was ok at best, orange juice, bread, cheese, ham and corn flakes etc. I only had bread and chocolate spread with orange juice both days. Sheets and towels changed daily. Great central location but bare in mind it is right in the red-light district (didn't really bother me). Price wise it was by far the best value we could find in all of Amsterdam. If you have trouble looking for it, it is on the same canal as the Cannabis/Hash/Hemp Museum.

stayed her with 7 friends so 8 of us in the 8 bed dorm... good size, didnt feel cramped! the lights are strange and it is a little dark so 8 girls trying to do make up was funny! had batgroom in room which had a better shower than most of our homes however 1 shower and toliet for all 8 people is a pain when getting ready to go out... fine for us but could imagine it being frustrating if your in the room with 7 strangers! yes it is noisy but its in the middle.of red light district so you have to accept this! breakfast is normal european style so toast, cold meats, egg, cereal tea and coffee! overall a good stay with friendly staff!

Spent 3 nights in a shared accommodation of 8, rooms were spartan and a bit dingy but clean and comfy beds. Staff were helpful and informative and top location.
Good for the budget traveler, but if money can be burned i'd look else where.
Points for a clockwork orange painted on my accommodation door though.

Nice little hostel. Clean and good service. Only issue was we went during summer, the room is painted black and I slept terribly. No air conditioning cant remember any fans, it didn't work if there were. Great location.

My partner and I had a private room with en suite, room number 1. Only steps we encountered were the ones entering the hostel. It was everything we needed for a 3 day stay. Clean and fully functioning with TV and shower. Little noisy at night with other hostellers but that's what you expect when on holiday in Amsterdam! Reception staff very helpful with regard to local attractions and taxis after getting ripped off at the airport on the way to the hostel we decided to trust them organising us a taxi on the way back, which they did for half the price (with a very professional gentleman taxi driver). We had a locker I'm the room for our more valuable goods which we had our own key for, making it feel a little more secure. As previous reviews mention it is a hostel and it is in red light, but that's what we wanted and loved every second we spent there.
