“Low End Hostel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2014

The hostel is located in a great area, near parks restaurants and other services. Other than that, I do not recommend it to those who are light sleepers or like any form of great service. The trams running by tend to rattle the rooms and create a great deal of noise til late at night. On top of that the service staff during the day are typically too busy on social media to assist, are often short tempered, and raise their voices at guests. Alongside that, we were not able to even access the hostel before 2pm and when given access to the room were greeted by dirty sheets and cigarette butts.

Was not a very welcoming hostel and hope there is a management upgrade in the near future as it's potential is being hindered.

We were so suprised about the atmosphere in this hotel. Amazing receptionist, Italian guy "Manu" made our stay even more comfortable. He is definitely a shining star in this hotel. His presence makes you smile from the very first moment. I will definitely come back there!!!!

A great stay in a great location! Had plenty of help from Manu on reception who made our stay fun and easy. He gave us advice on how to get around the city and where to go hotel is 5 min walk from the main party place in the city so was a great place to stay for me and my friends

It's a good value for money. The staff was very friendly and have us directions to everywhere we needed to go. We had a room for too, you have a sink in the room, but the shower and toilet is shared with other rooms, which was not a big problem, never saw a line :) the room was clean. Anyways we needed a place just to sleep couple of hours, so it was good. The location is alo good, you can take a tram to the center or walk may be 15 min.

This hostel has very poor reviews on here but if you want value for your money in Amsterdam then you'll get it here.

Yes the place needs a good renovation but it more then makes up for it considering how expensive it is to stay in Amsterdam!

I had a good comfortable clean bed, it was quite, a clean shower/toilet everyday, good WiFi and always a warm smile from the staff and especially Mario who went out of his way too help me with my trip!

Also comments about the Tram are ridiculously unjustified, they stop at 12:30 am and go EVERYWHERE in the city so wherever you go it'll be the same and thankfully they aren't that bad anyway!

I more then enjoyed my stay here especially as it cost me £42 for 2 nights for my own room-seriously impossible to beat anywhere else in town.

I would stay here again as I felt very welcomed and safe as a solo female traveller.

Also billy basics of hostels-bring a towel, flip flops and an open mind...you'll have a lot easier time!
