We had to book this hostel at the last minute because there was no more room at the Flying Pig. It's pretty much in the Red Light District, we could literally see prostitutes in their windows from our room's. Staff seemed indifferent, though never rude or disrespectful. It was more expensive than its worth. Everything was clean, but our room...

The only niggle with this hostel is that when I paid online I thought I had paid the full amount (55€ for two nights) when arriving they said I still had to pay it. Then I asked about an amount that had been taken out... This was a deposit but I don't get it back until a few days after...

Great location, right in the Heart of the Red Light district next to bars and coffee shops! The hotel itself is very clean and the staff are relatively friendly, the only downside to our stay was the location of our room. We had a late check in at around 9pm and where given room 1. This room is right next...

I stay in this hostel fo six days during a trip with my friends... Excellent hostel! It's in a central location, into the red light district, near Dam square. The rooms are confortable and clean, decorated in a cinematic theme (we were into the "Lord of rings" room), with eight or twelve beds. I recommend this hostel for an holyday...

We paid for 40e / one person / one night. It was a room of six people. There was no warm water and the heating was off half of the time. The guy in the Reception had lots of excuses but he didn't actually do anything to correct the problem with water. It was really unbelievable. So if you like...

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.
