This is definitely a party hostel! Stayed in a 4 bed dorm for 2 nights. Staff was friendly and bar stayed open and full of people til at least 4:30 am. Living room downstairs was a nice place to chill out and watch a movie. Cleanliness was ok - main showers were much better than the ones in the dorm...

If you're looking for a cheap place to rest and shower look no further! It was the best place to meet other young travelers and explore the city together!

The beginning of my trip had been really rough and the moment I arrived in Amsterdam I knew it was the turning point! The hostel is very close to the main train station and everything is in reasonable walking distance. It was slightly hard to spot the sign down the busy streets surrounded by stores. The hostel is pretty big...

Turned up having never been to Amsterdam, or having stayed in a hostel before and cannot praise it enough. The hostel itself is about 2 minutes walk away from the main train station and is really nicely decorated inside with a pool table, downstairs lounge for watching movies and bar. The showers are really modern and clean and give enough...

Myself and friends visited amsterdam for a long weekend to see the sights and enjoy the nightlife, thus hostel couldn't have been more ideal for our trip. Very central location so we were actually able to walk everywhere we wanted to go. Safe and secure with each visitor having their own key card to even enter the hostel, used again...

I didn't have a bad time but I wouldn't stay again. The staff are nice, the facilities clean, the location central (perhaps too much so) and the breakfast useful. But very much a hostel if you're purpose is to smoke so the atmosphere isn't great.

Stayed over the new year holiday in a 16 bed dorm since everything else was super pricey. Overall a good experience. The staff was very friendly and helpful, the common areas and rooms are cleaned often, and it's a good place to party. Location right downtown means constant activity. Only downside was our door slammed shut all the time, messes...

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.
