The worst hotel?? In someone's opinion, definitely not mine. May have looked like a youth hostel and when entering the communal eating area I pretty much expected someone to start clapping and dancing on the tables. I must say I thoroughly enjoyed my stay. Cheap enough to sleep in and was in enough company to fill a dorm so no...

Very good hostel for youth in center of Amsterdam. Rooms are small, sheets are clean, bathrooms are small.. Breakfast is very good and staff is friendly. If you are looking for cheap accommodation in Dam this is the place!

Stayed here for 3 days. The rooms very pretty ordinary, beds and pillows were all something you would expect from a hostel. It was impossible to take a shower, as there was very weak water pressure, and the heating kept fluctuating, that I eventually just decided to shower in freezing water. The location of the hostel, however, is extraordinary. It...

They call themselves the "Worst Hostel in the World," but that's really just a self-conscious marketing plan. In reality, the beds and sheets are clean, the rooms are not overly hot, and the location is fantastic. It can get noisy on busy nights though and the one nasty thing was the bathroom, which after the shower was used the water...

Brilliant location but still cheap, clean and with big free lockers. The breakfast was surprisingly versatile and definitely the best hostel breakfast I've ever had! There's also a very nice restaurant/bar and a club so it's very good especially for young travellers. Only the showers were a bad experience, otherwise more than value for money!

This is not a hotel, it is a dirty, filthy, bug infested hole and that's still giving it too much credit. The rooms are filthy dirty and the beds are crawling with bed bugs. The water did not work for the first day we were there and the bathroom stank to the point of being unbearable to even walk in....

Staying in Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)

Neighborhood Profile
Canal Ring (Grachtengordel)
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is as historically significant as it is perennially popular.
