Just come back from a short break, hostel was in a great location, room was small but didn't expect half of what we got for price. Friendly staff. Clean linen and towels on request and very clean. Would stay again.

1 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2014

My best friend and I (two females) went on a 3 day trip to Amsterdam and even the first night in that "Hotel" were almost unbearable.
We were in an 8 bed room and everything was really cramped, the beds were not even 30 cm away from each other, in the morning the smell was super bad because the room was so small and there were too many people in there. The bathroom was very dirty and were never cleaned, the beds were uncomfortable and the only way to be able to sleep a little was with ear buds and a sleeping mask. The staff was very unprofessional, and they would be quite unhelpful when asking for cups or plates for the breakfast we had to buy ourselves. You can buy snacks there but it's only sweet stuff and lemonades that must have been there for ages.
They don't really check who belongs to the hotel and sometimes creepy and sketchy people hang out there.
All in all: the rooms are disgusting and not even bearable for backpackers trying to stay at a cheap place. It seems unsafe and you feel sick after using the bathroom or spending more than 10 minutes in the room!
But the location is pretty cool... Not recommended for more than one night.

Stayed February 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!!!
