Overall the hostel is bad. The staff members are extremely rude ( all of them). They do not keep bags so if your flight is in the afternoon you need to carry your luggage all day long. There is only on toilet per floor so you need to wait because there are always people queuing. The reception are has a... More

The guys in the reception are rude and lazy. The reception is closed most of the time. The hostel is completely overpriced, they have a cat that pees everywhere. I was complaining in the reception about the poor service and the receptionist answer me "you are in amesterdam, smoke a joint and relax". How can I relax if the place... More

I had a terrible experience in cosmos hostel. I booked a room just for girls and I had the housekeeping guys entering the room all the time without knocking, the room was dirty and smelly. You need to wait to go to the toilet, there are always people queuing. The staff is the rudest that I ever met. I would... More

We booked the hostel online, not finding much advice on how to get there from the airport. When we got there, we were happy with the quality of the rooms and bathrooms. A little street noise, but we slept pretty well. Good location for visiting the museums. The service was very mixed, however. The person who checked us in (possibly... More

Stayed here for 3 nights with a friend and thought it was worth our money. Hostel was clean and all the staff were very friendly and helpful! Rooms a little on the small side but prefect if you just want somewhere to sleep. Beds very comfortable and cute little common room with a coffee machine and a cat! Lockers available... More

It's in a great location around the Museums and there are plenty of tram stops around the area. The staff that I dealt with were friendly. For the few nights that I was there, they came into the room at about 11-12 at night. I'm not sure why this was. Whether it was to make sure no one else was... More

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighborhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
