Great location if you are interested in spending time in the red light district. It is clean and comfy. Sink drain was leaking, and the bathroom could have some re-tiling. Didn't get much street noise, only a bit from the next door neighbor. Overall, great value, and I'd stay here again.

The staff was mediocre, the fact that the furniture in the rooms is made of a cheap loud (yeah sound wise) metal that makes a sound almost everytime anyone touches it is bothersome considering there are several people in the room. And the breakfast was Dull, but Location wise it was amazing, the name of the hostel is spot on....

Although located at the red light district but I didn't hear the noice during the night time. It's very near to the central and places of interest. The staffs are friendly. The 8 bed mix dorm is spacious, but the show room is tiny. Breakfast is ok with continental style.

A few friends and I recently stayed at the Heart of Amsterdam Hostel, we were really pleased with the hostel as it was central with a short walking distance to many of the attractions. The staff were really friendly and welcoming and couldn't do enough for you, they were fab. Our room was very clean and tidy and was also...

My experience with this hostel was extremely poor. Upon my arrival, I immediately smelled a horrible stench. Since I got a very sketchy vibe from the atmosphere, I asked the woman at the desk to see my room first. We walked up these very narrow and unsafe stairs, making me feel very claustrophobic. I would not recommend this place especially...

The location of this hostel is very good (if you want to be in the Red Light District), the staff were friendly and our dorm was big. We stayed in the 007 room (basement) - people would smoke outside in the stairwell and it would come into the room and the rain would also come in. Security wasn't very good...

If you're not into partying don't stay here, I couldn't sleep at night because people kept getting inside and out the room the entire night. I understand the location is proper for parties, smoking etc, but I made a mistake in listening to a friend and I regret it. The staff was kind of helpful, but the rooms were very...

I visited this hotel in february 2016, it was a really good stay, very nice hotel, great breakfast! Owners were very friendly. They took the time to give us tips on our trip in Amsterdam and guided us to good places, nice restaurants and great pubs! I would totally book again to this hotel if i visit Amsterdam again!

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.
