Although I did stay here, I met friends that did and they enjoyed it. It has a cool bar to hangout and chill in. It a calm place. If you want to relax, kick back and smoke a j this is a good place. Beer is a fair price, chicken wings are tasty and also cheap.

Very much paying for the name when it comes to staying at this hostel/ hotel. Found it not very good value for money when compared to other hostels that we visited. However, it is in a very good location in the red light district of Amsterdam. There is lots going on. It also has the coffee shop attached.

If you are looking for a relaxed and quiet hotels then this isn't it. It is perfect for what I need in Amsterdam, a base that can also double as somewhere to unwind. Breakfast is fine, rooms are fine, staff down to the doorman are always in a good mood and want to help. Best part if ;like me sometimes... More

Despite the fact that we were in a ten-bed dorm, we didn't have any trouble sleeping. No noise from outside, good beds. The bar downstairs is pretty cool. And the free breakfast is full of choices! Overall it was a really good stay.

We stayed in a private room (all private rooms are en suite). The room was clean. The beds were very comfortable. The room also had a TV with several channels to choose from so if you feel like chilling out its really nice to be able to watch a movie or some sport. The location is unbeatable. It is right...

The rooms have old carpet and mattresses in them. The shower had no shelf for your soap etc., so all of your things had to be placed on the floor. The room with the toilet had poor lighting and smelled like a sewer. The entire room had only one mirror that was small and not near any good lighting. It... More

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighborhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
