This hostel is not for everyone but it suited my needs. If you're after a more sedate time in Amsterdam that's cheap, this is the place to go. It was a good price and the room and ensuite bathroom (in a 4 bed room) was clean and adequate. I was invited to Bible studies but it wasn't forced on me. It is in the Red Light District which was a little scary early in the morning and late at night but there was always plenty of people around. It was in the centre of Amsterdam close to all the main attractions and was easy to find not far from Central station. The breakfasts were good with your choice of a hot breakfast or cereal. Internet was free and they had four computers which meant you could get straight on most times. If you can handle talk about the Bible etc and aren't into the party scene, then this is a pretty good place to stay in Amsterdam.
