“Good Hostel!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

A very good basic, safe and clean hostel. Staff were friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable. Communal bathrooms were acceptable! Be warned that this hostel has loads of stairs!! Location was ok for, as we are used to using public transport. Hostel is not within walking distance of main tourist attractions.

Okay, it's not THAT terrible, but for the amount we paid it was not worth it. SUPER steep staircases, unfriendly staff members, decent rooms, inconvenient location! It's a semi-decent place, but don't do it if you don't have to. One night was enough to turn me off.

Staying still in hotel, great place not too far from Amsterdams city centre. Clean place with cool staff. And of course here is hot shower 24/7 and big screen in reception which actually very nice place to chill out. There's a lot of good places to get goog food and actually whatever you need. I'll definitely come here back again!!!

This people didn't know what the hell they where doing. They literally look like chickens running around with their heads cut off. They completely ignored us and I really do think they did it because we where all women. When they finally gave us some attention they said our room wasn't ready, so we asked to leave our bags there and they said they had no more room in the closet so to leave it in a room. We double checked and asked them if it was safe to leave them there and he said yes and to put an example that the door would lock he slammed the door in our faces. When we came back late at night to finally get our room. He said that our room wasn't available any more. So we had to stay at there "sister hostel" and they tried to charge us double after we already paid at the other hostel. These Hostels are run by morons.

This hostel is not a good deal! First, we had to wait 2 hours to have our room. After 2 hours the guy told us that the room we booked (8 bedroom) was not free so we have to sleep separately or the some matress on the floor... But we paid for the 8 bedroom...
The bathroom is the worst I have ever seen! It was very very dirty! And the floor of the room too. I dont know if they clean the bathroom!
Then in the middle of the nights some guys were screaming (I think it was the guys working there and some other guys).
At the end, there was a problem with the deposit you give for the key (10 euros)...

So please dont go there!

Arriving at the hotel was pretty easy and simple, the chap at the desk was helpful and nice, but that's where the plesantries finish. On the second night of our stay we were awaken too what we believe too be 5 turkish or middle eastern men demanding we pay for room damage,smoking in the room and for assaulting and scarying off the four cypriot women who were sharing the room with us. So €250 and a new hotel later, we got the cops envolved who were able too tell us that the women were still in our room and had no idea what was going on or why we had left. The management then changed their accusations against us too a damaged sink and wall, which the police were able to confirm was false. All in all please do not stay at this hotel as something is seriously wrong with the managment in control there.

The cantankerous old goat at the desk honestly turned a good weekend into a bad one. This guy would have trouble using the toilet on his own never mind running a hostel. It took him 25-30 minutes to type three names and addresses in the computer. I honestly thought he was winding us up at one stage. He insisted that i had booked for 3 nights even though i was only staying for two. I argued with him for well over a half an hour until i logged on to my email and showed him the dates for the booking. Instead of apologising he starts cursing at me in Arabic and waving us out of the reception area. I could not believe how rude he was. Got to the bedrooms after 1 hour and 30 minutes on top off several hours looking for the place.
