Good hostel right in the middle of the city center. Staff was very friendly and relaxed, as well as the travellers staying in the hostel. However, hostel atmosphere is rather individualistic so don't expect a lot of interaction with other guests, but I guess this is to be expected for a hostel right in the middle of the center. Breakfast... More

The rooms are not up to standard, location is very good, very basics nothing much, it's good for student. The rooms needs refurbishment you have to pay for towels. Deposits for keys, the bed sheets are off white and smelly. If the owner can re do the place it will be good attraction as per location. I could not believe... More

first of all, you can only pay with cash. you are given to key to your room. inside the stairwell you get hit by the strong smell of chlorine and the damp air of an sauna. when your in the room (which is the worst part) you see beds and nothing more. it seriously looks like concentration camp with the...

Great location, good value for your money. Stuff was friendly and the atmosphere is fine. very basic breakfast but you can't expect 5 stars breakfast for this price. Amsterdam is so cool so save you just need a place to put your head and the beds are OK.

We choose a private room for 2 and the room has bunk bed. Its not big, but I think Amsterdam its not much different than that! And the toilet hasnt the best one, doesn't have separation between the toilet seat and shower. Despite it was expensive, was one of the cheapest one that I found. Its good located, really close...

Staff was very nice but for the price I paid I felt like I could have found better elsewhere. The rooms and bathrooms weren't the cleanest (although the beds were quite comfortable) and the breakfast was pretty standard (bread with peanut butter and jelly and coffee or tea). It was right in the middle of a neighbourhood with lots of... More

Travelled through Europe for a month and this was easily the worst place I stayed in. Small cramped room with no window and dodgy bedding. Breakfast is bad coffee and bread. The place was dirty and the staff were not friendly. This is a last option hostel only.

Overpriced. We walked in to 3 guests discussing their $150 fee for smoking in the room. We then went into the room at 5 pm to find 3 people sleeping. We went out at night and went to bed. (6 beds per room). At about 5 in the morning 2 guys came into the room and turn on the lights... More

It is a good budget hostel in an expensive city with polite receptions. The breakfast was good and the place is clean. I hope they have special windows that could block noise of bars after midnight. But the price is reasonable.

I was about to visit the hostel, when due to unfortunate circumstances I had to cancel my trip. I contacted the hostel through the booking site and email (I booked through Hostel World, another no go), as they had a 3 day cancellation policy. Upon receiving no reply for 3 days, I decided to call, where the receptionist refused to... More
