Thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, good clean beds in the four room dorms, a simple but pleasant continental breakfast complete with peanut butter, and best of all a great atmosphere. One of the few hostels that welcome you to smoke anything legal in their smoking rooms ;)

Staff failed to let me know at checkin i was switching beds so i was shaken awake at 230am to pack up all my stuff and switch rooms.

Spent 4 nights in early May. The hostel is conveniently located right beside the northern part of Vondelpark. The rooms are small, but comfortable, same can be said for the washrooms and showers. The bar and smoking room are a major plus and a wonderful way to meet fellow travelers. The hostel is laid out well in that the bar... More

Cannot recommend this hostel enough!!! Really!! Planning on coming back to Amsterdam and when we do will definitely stay here again! The staff were lovely, friendly and easy going. The other guests were the same.. Had a Mexican night going on while we were there.. Always someone around too which makes you feel safe too! Bonus!

This hostel is lively and staff are extremely friendly, how hostels are supposed to be in my opinion. You get free breakfast included which is rare. Bar downstairs which Is good for socialising. Free WiFi and close to lots of attractions. There's a lot of stairs so be prepared to carry your stuff up them. Kitchen is quite small but... More

Friendly staff, great bar, comfy beds, no charge for towels, free breakfast that was pretty good for a free hostel breakfast. Couldn't ask for much more. Only drawback is that there is no elevator, only super steep stairs which is a pain with a massive suitcase.. But not a huge deal. Great location right beside Vondelpark.

Pretty much standard bunk hostel beds. But my reason for selecting this place was the smoking room on site perfect for that final smoke before bed time. Has a lively bar and a great place for solo travellers to meet people. Close to the museum quarter. Hostels weren't really for me but it was clean enough

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
