Location was perfect. Good breakfast. Hostel was not that clean, though. I made the mistake to stay in a 12 bed room. We had people walking in and out all night long. I just think it was too expensive for what that was. Not a good vibe really.

The Hostel smelt awful. The receptionist was unfriendly and unhelpful. The rooms are tiny. The stairs leading up to the hostel are dangerpus. There are permanent road works outside and the atmosphere is dire. We didnt even stay it was that bad. Seriously needs decorating. A mens only hostel. waste of my deposit. Livid to say the least.

Clean hostel, in central location. For a hostel I was quite impressed with cleanliness and friendliness of staff. I usually prefer hotels for security purposes, but would stay again.

As soon as we arrived at the hotel, the first thing you noticed was the endless scaffolding surrounding the building. When we checked in our room was sweltering hot and there were men with power tools working just outside the window and on the roof. Naps are not an option in this hotel. Further more, one of our group got... More

I have stayed at this hostel many times when I have been in Amsterdam. I think it is really nice, but I also only sleep in 8bed rooms. The showers is not the best ones, but I works. Iits clean and the staff I helpfull. I recommend this as a middle (Amsterdam) budget.

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.
