Really fun, humming place. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful for our first time in Amsterdam. Always bustling and with a brilliant atmosphere. Reasonably priced bar food and drink. It is perhaps a little expensive but so is the whole city and you get what you pay for here. Would highly recommend.

Staff will only interact with you at check in. You're just a number in a very commercial machine after that. Do not fall for the friendly language they use on hostelworld/bookers. All staff very cliquey. Bedroom facilities are adequate but you can find better for cheaper.

Great staff, so welcoming and friendly. Clean rooms, security box under the bed for your stuff was great. Cheap bar food was really nice and great as we had a low budget, also good food for breakfast. Comfortable and would definitely visit again.

This may be the 2nd review I've ever done, so this isn't usual for me to do. But this was definitely one of the best hostels I've stayed in. Clean. Great vibe. Staff is on point. And (Adam) was great given the ridiculously late hours he had to work tuesday night. Would no doubt come back again.

Stayed here in June with 5 friends in a 6 bed dorm which was convenient. Atmosphere in the hostel was brilliant, there was almost no need to go out because of the lively bar and smoking room downstairs! Only issues were the wifi: non existent in our room and the bathroom: the shower was slightly mouldy and the drains smelled.... More

Very friendly staff, would love to live and work here. Would definitely go again and a great vibe for young backpackers. Beds were comfy and enough for a night out in Amsterdam. We also had an unexpected free breakfast which was very nice. Lots of information from the reception staff and they were happy to help with anything.

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
