Safe, clean, central and affordable. Very very easy to find and accessible, even when coming home late and little drunk! Everything students/young people could want from a hostel, definitely recommend!

Had a 6 bed mixed room, very clean, and obviously it has a great location.

When staying in Amsterdam I highly recommend staying out of the city centre proper, it's dirty, noisy, and Vondelpark is just a short walk from all of the action. Much quieter and there is an absence of the lingering marijuana scent that seems to dominate the centre of town.

This hostel provides a really comprehensive breakfast (as far as hostel breakfasts are concerned) it also has a really nice bar downstairs where you can meet other travelers. When I go back to Amsterdam I will be staying here.

This place is fine overall - and pretty clean for a hostel, particularly one in Amsterdam.

I stayed here as part of a stag do and it served wonderfully. It has a half decent bar with friendly staff and a good happy hour, and the staff at the desk are very professional and efficient as well, unlike the sort of moody dodgy characters running the flophouses e.g. near Damrak.

The location is great to strike at both the cultural attractions and the nightlife, and the park makes for a pleasant backdrop.

I would definitely stay here again if looking for a cheap decent option in Amsterdam.

Room Tip: One overlooking the park is nice

It is in a very good location, right next to the park and walking distance of everything, specially Museumplatz.
The public areas were nice and staff were efficient.
The shower in my dorm stopped working (I guess that was just luck) but they never fixed it properly, just wiggled it and thats it.. I do recommend it and it's a great place to meet other travellers just like you :)

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2013

If I was in my 20's, and this was in a category specifically for hostels, it would be excellent.

However, I have stayed in 3-star hotels in Amsterdam which cost only a little more but offered
more value for the money. Location is excellent. Not enough outlets and no wi-fi in rooms.

The response that no wi-fi in rooms encourages socializing in the lobby is lame, as no one
seemed to be socializing outside their own group.

Staff was very good. Breakfast was good for a hostel, but not as good as in other hotels where I have stayed in Amsterdam.

We were a group of 3 50+ and 60+ year olds staying in a 8-person room. I actually enjoy
staying with younger people, but I prefer a higher level of comfort nowadays. Nevertheless,
as a hostel, I would highly recommend this place compared to hostels I stayed in when I WAS
in my 20's.

Thank you for your review and ratings. We are happy to hear you like our staff and breakfast. We are aware of the fact that there are not a lot of outlets in the rooms, therefore we offer to charge electronic devices for free at the reception. Like you said, we only offer WiFi in the common area as we want people to meet and share experiences. Although people are on their device in the common area, we do believe that it's easier to meet people in the common area or bar than when they stay in their rooms. We do hope you enjoyed Amsterdam!

Me and a friend stayed here for a long weekend and it was perfect for what we needed. Central location, friendly staff and a nice atmosphere, we felt safe staying here everyone we met was nice. There were lockers to secure belongings and a nice buffet breakfast. There is a bus very close which takes you straight to the airport. Rooms were spacious and clean. Perfect for a short stay to explore amsterdam
