“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014

I stayed here for 2 nights, with a large group of friends. While the rooms are clean enough we found it a lot of effort staying here, having to move rooms for the second night, and if we had've extended our stay, we would have had to move again. The staff seemed friendly and the facilities were again fine but basic. After moving to another hostel (and walking round many more!) the price seemed to be average as well, with some hostels charging a lot more, and some charging slightly less.

Super cheap, excellent location just 10 mins from station/5 from Dam square, staff very polite and always helpful. Would not recommend for elderly tourists as the steps are incredibly narrow and a fall from the 4th floor would be lethal. Other than that everything absolutely perfect!!!

Thing is it is located in such a great place, you have access to most of the attractions, walking distance to and from Amsterdam Centraal and there is a tram stop in front of the hotel. Cons, well, safety is one, like a comment mention anyone can access in the dorm area (not directly inside dorm rooms unless you leave it unlocked) , the receptionist doesn't check if the people they buzz in are guests so I think that's the issue and there are quite a few shifty people around the area and inside who stay in there as well. Besides that the cleanliness was also a factor but not a major one as it is so cheap. I'm not that particular about cleanliness as it was manageable but it could use improvements. Other than that, the staff are really nice and it's cheap but I highly doubt I will be staying there again. If you plan to stay a night or 2 then it should be alright but any longer I'd say pay a little extra and look elsewhere and for just girls staying I wouldn't say it's the safest places!! :)

Woke up one night at 2:30am to a hand above my face attempting to steal my jacket which was next to my head! This was one of the most scariest life experiences I have ever had. The security allow access for anyone to enter the rooms from the street. I watched as this person moved from bed to bed in the dark as my roommates were sleeping. When I warned the staff about the incident the next day, they actually yelled at my face for making up lies about the security at their hotel. I later found out several people had things stolen that night. Stay away from this hotel please! I wouldnt wish for anyone to go through the experience that I endured here.

The hostel was located in a very good location almost in the Dam Square. The cafe downstairs was nice with relatively cheap prices. However, one of the receptionists (the morning shift) was very rude and unfriendly. The hostel would be ok if you are willing to use just for a sleep, but I guess you can find some other better places with the same price.
