Our first stop on the trip was Amsterdam. This hostel provided us with the perfect hostel experience. The check in was unique with no smoking in the rooms but allowed to smoke hash in the restaurant 😂. We shared a 12 bedroom dorm and found the room to be clean. Lockers available to hold passports or other secure items. Shower... More

Really good staying with all my friends. The hostel it's just in the center and it's well linked to everything. The staff it's really powerful, helpful and funny. Nothing to complaint, just I've tried to smoke at 9am in the lounge and they stopped me...maybe it was so early. Thanks all

The location of this hostel is great, right in the Red Light District, especially for first time visitors. There is a wonderful atmosphere in the area and you're right by the canal. It's a bit pricey for a hostel but each room has two bathrooms to 12 beds and there is a bar and restaurant right downstairs with a cafe... More

Stayed here in the summer with 10 friends for 2 nights. The bunk beds were comfortable, although there wasn't much space for bags and the lockers were pretty small. Location was a huge advantage, as this was placed right next to RDL and on the canal. Would recommend for large groups who want to be in the centre.

Me and a friend stayed in a 10 person mixed dorm for 3 nights and were pleasantly surprised. Was clean, tidy and comfortable. There are 10 bunk beds in a large room, each has there own locker and the room has one shower room and one toilet. Definitely takes some getting used to sleeping in a room with 9 strangers... More

Location of the hotel is perfect to walk around. The bar and coffee shop for hotel patrons on the ground floor is perfect to hangout. Dorm rooms were comfy and great people. The staff was really friendly and helpful.

Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable rooms. Great restaurant downstairs and a well stocked cafe next door. Relatively quiet being located in the heart of Amsterdam. I recommend checking it out.

Traveling with 4 people we booked a private room, which was a good choice in a very busy hostel. Having our own bathroom and no concerns for our valuable safety was great. Breakfast is included each day consisting of typical European cold meats, cheeses and bread. The hostel is located above The Bulldog's largest coffee shop, so don't be surprised... 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.
