“Good choice for budget stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 11, 2013 via mobile

Despite it is located not in the heart of amsterdam, i find hostelle location is nice, quite and easy to reach by metro. My room is small with 4 bunk bed, bath room is outside the room and clean. I had only an issue with the bunk bed which create a sound every time i move or climb to the top bed.

We found a bit difficult to find the place, but there was some signs lead us to Hostelle and after we tried other way, it is easy from Bijlmer Arena. We arrived at 7.30 morning, but the room was not ready yet, it's normal and ok for us. And we can took a bath which relieving for us.
The place is nice, decoration is good and unique, staff is very kind especially curly girl who reminds me of Alicia Keys..:))
Bathrooms also clean, kitchen is clean and complete with plates-glasses even refrigerator for our foods. Overall the hostelle is great. I enjoy it. Until on my last night at Amsterdam, I found a mouse, small one, in my room.
I reported it, and the staff so surprised by my story. I thinks it is because a hole somewhere inthe room and our roomates put a lot of foods inside in open condition. I guess the hostel has to fix something and put some rules for that.
Hope the others will never meet the mouse again.. enjoy...

The hostel is quite far from the attractions although the public transportation system is close by and the staff is helpful in providing directions. The hostel was nearly empty when I was there so I had a room to myself for one night and it was quite lonely & quiet. However, the next night more people came. There's no real restaurants in the area, only quick serve restaurants in the shopping area nearby which closes quite early so make sure you eat in the city centre before you go back to the hostel. I found the hostel itself to be safe seeing as there is security downstairs, but the surrounding area did not seem as safe. The rooms were clean and the decor was really cool. It was nice to have a kitchen to use as well. Overall, it was a good stay but not very lively.

The location is great, a very short walk from the metro which also takes you past cafes and supermarkets. The rooms are clean and cosy, lockers (with padlocks) are provided and there are a few shelves by the bed for each person in the dorm. The cute decor even extends to the bathrooms and showers. Reception staff were very friendly and have me a full tour on arrival which always makes you feel welcome. There is a small kitchen a loads of seating (including pleanty of tables) where you can eat/ relax. The only thing I would say is that 5EUR for a towel in too much and I didn't want to buy one and then have to carry it round or throw it (all my other hostels provided them free of charge or you could rent them for a small fee). If you need a towel go to 'Zeemans' (on the way to the hostel) and buy one for 2.50EUR!

The hostel as you walk in is beautiful and presented lovely which every girl would love!
Each bedroom, bathroom has its own little theme which is quite cute and homely. The service was good but not too personable which was a shame.
The design if the showers were not thought out well, only few drains in the actual showers which meant you would have to trek through wet floors to shower, brush your teeth, do your make up.
Having a kitchen is always a bonus in a hostel but this one is tiny and there was never any room in the fridge for new comers and the bins were always over flowing with rubbish.
Overall this hostel has ALoT of potential to be amazing! The decor is unique and beautiful, the rooms are pretty reasonable size.. There just needs to be a lot of work to improve the little things! Including hard squeaky beds!

-Shower room and toilets clean, tidy and well presented
-Directions on the website and all information clear and helpful
-Free Wifi and padlock for underbed locker
-5 minutes walk from Amsterdam ArenA and Bijlmer Metro

Would not stay here again. We stayed in a private twin room. The rooms were clearly not cleaned beforehand; we found rubbish under our beds. Moreover, the free wifi advertised failed to work in our room as it was at the end of the corridor. There was no hot water in our shower for one day and nothing was done to help the situation when we asked the receptionist for help. The rooms are also quite small. Location is okay as it is quite close to a metro station.
