“Terrible, horrible, disgusting”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

The worst place I have ever seen in my life. it is definitely not a hotel, and can't even be called a hostel. I had to book here in 2006 only because all the other budget hotels in Amsterdam were fully booked and I could not pay more than 100 euros at that moment for a decent hotel. I had a bed in a dormitory room and it was so small that there were only 2 double-deck beds and one chair inside. The window was blocked and after few minutes all together in the room (4 people) it was impossible to breathe. The bathroom was very very dirty and very small, the shower didn't have any curtain or anything, when you were washing yourself the water was falling on the wc and anything around. When you opened the door to the room the water went to the floor of the room. The bathroom was full of hair, stain, etc. Seemed that it hasn't been cleaned for years. The breakfast was non-existant - anyone could take something from the fridge but at the end that was only a very cheap butter (big piece from supermarket) and cold milk and some old tastless marmalade. Anyone was entering in the pot with his own knife and it was not really pleasant. In general the place seemed a rat hole and outside there was no even a sign so hard to find. Very dirty, very noisy and the dormitory rooms are mixed so they put together girls with men, for example I (a 20-year old girl) had to stay with 3 men in the same room. Never again and even if so economic it's better to look for something else. The only advantage was the location, nice area, not central, but well connected.

Worst place I've ever been to. Really expensive, rude receptionist, dirty rooms. Do not go there please! We have been waiting for our room for more than one hour and then when we finally got in it was already occupied!! We had to split in two different rooms and the other guys that were with us didn't even have the bathroom nor a shower on their floor

Typically steep staircases as found throughout all of Amsterdam. Somewhat helpful front desk. Not too far from Amsterdam city centre but it does require you to purchase tram cards (which add up to a fair bit of cash). Decent rooms, however slightly misleading as we booked for 7 (assuming we'd be put into one room) but were split into two rooms. Additionally, we were put up on the top floor (which didn't have its own bathroom, and neither rooms even had sinks) which made the walk up late at night somewhat frustrating and difficult. However, not too pricey and I found the showers very clean (the wait, as in all hostels, is just pretty annoying!). Not bad for the price you pay.

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.
