“Exactly what you pay for”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2014

A typical hostel, 10 beds in the room which was clean and had a huge tv. Just what you'd expect to have at that price. The bathrooms were clean and all sheets were fresh. The room was also cleaned during our stay. And the beds were surprisingly comfortable!

First of all, it is a hostel, not a hotel. Considering that, the hostel is ok to stay for a few nights. Me and my girlfriend stayed in a 8-bed room. Just in the first night (sunday) it was full, but the others we slept in 4 or 5 in the room. Therefore, the private (small) bathroom was ok. The shower is the better thing in the toilet, however after using it the floor become all wet. The toiled seat is bad located and you barely can seat properly. The bed was ok and the lockers are huge (you can rent a padlock for 5 euros - with refund - at the reception). The hostel is very well located.

if your looking for the seasoned budget traveller experience then this is for you,,,,i went here with some potheads and though not being a weed smoker myself I have to say I greatly enjoyed it. It was super cheap and in a vibrant street in the red light area. It was certainly an experience. A mouse was loose but that meant no rats and my four bunk room had the distinct feeling of being locked up in a cell but that just added to the fun. It all depends on your state of mind. And Yes, the staircase is lethally authentic. The best part of it was the staff. All very friendly and easy going. I would return again..

Stayed for four nights as a place to get our head down for some kip after out all day/night.

Get what you pay for really, stayed in room 9 which is at the top of a very dodgy stairwell but once you get over that room very basic, sheets seemed clean even had a tv in the room (Didn't try it)
Shared bathroom/toilet was a small cubical did the trick anyway.

Excellent location! Couldn't fault it. Although people may find the church bells annoying if your trying to sleep.

Also get 20% off food/drink at the Irish bar down the road which came in handy!

Arrived here late on a friday ( over for the Roger Waters concert) and the usual ' Hotel Reservations' place on the Damrak was closed, so walked all round the area looking for digs, and finally found this place. Just the two of us, we were given the attic 4 bed room with an amazing view of the (?) cathedral in the red-light ( did wake us up v. early, but more later!), up the ubiquitous steep Amsterdam stairs! Went out for the usual 'dam shenanigans, got back with a kebab and some chips ( the best chips ever) at about 5, turned the light on and there were two more bodies in t'other bunk-bed. Woke the fella up ( he was a Manc, must have been a bit upset these 2 pissed Scousers waking him), not deliberately, but by virtue of two fat 38 y.o. blokes squeezing through a narrow 'dam house whilst pissed. Woke his mate in the bottom bunk, who actually turned out to be his wife, who he had treated to a weekend in the Dam for her 40th birthday as a suprise! Slept very well, the bed was very comfortable, but obvious restrictions with a lady in there! Very tiny bathroom, shared with 4 Germans who had the runs. Robbed of key deposit by fat toad on front desk, church bells all night on the 1/4 hour and within 100 yards, Eu45 for a night. Got a place from the hotel place on the Damrak next day, but it is now a lot cheaper to book even a few days in advance for a nice apartment for less money. As for the Dam, been a while since I was last there, got rid of a lot of the pick-pockets and fellas selling cocaine on the streets, but all seems ( dare I say) a bit sterile now

Room Tip: Attic room facing the church had lovely views, but only if there is 4 in your party.

We were 4 people came from israel and usually to the conditions of littlle rooms from the army so it was ok in generally there was allways a worker that was cleaning the rooms and stand in the sheets we've been there for a week but it dosent metter because amsterdam is amazing and the hostel is in a very centralizer place so that we were almost never in the room. Its little expencive for what you get but the team is nice and helper and we have very fun
