If one's done enough research will know that Heart Of Amsterdam is really a "hostel". As a frequent traveler who travels easily 30+ times/year. This is my very first time setting foot in a hostel... ALONE (I am a female). Not expecting much, the place is very neat and tidy, and newly renovated, quite decent for first impression. (For people... More

I really dont think there is a word to descide how much of a [----]this place is. Everything about the place is a joke: broken windows, dirty smelly rooms, [----] filled toilets and shower area shared between 12 or more people. by all means go for it if you want to stay there but you'll be lucky to come out...

We wanted to saty somewhere central in Amsterdam, and this hotel seemed to fit the bill. It is located centrally on a canal, but when we got there we discovered it was also in the heart of the red light district. It is an old traditional building that has been renovated. his means it has the old steep stairs, which... More

Heart of Ams is definitely not for the family or elderly couple or anyone really. It is located in the red light district. Be careful of the drug dealers right on your door step, as well as the crowds of people constantly walking past the hotel which keep you up all night with their swearing and fighting. May be the...

This is by far the worst place I have stayed in my entire life, I had to sleep with the lights on and above the covers, Bedbugs and all! I have seen cleaner places in Afghanistan! They charged my card 1 month after I stayed there, and I still am battling with my credit card company to fix it. I... More

My friend and I read the reviews online before we went to the hostel, but it was the only place open so we had to go there. We made sure to book a hostel with a bathroom in the room. When we arrived, they tried to rip us off and give us one of the cheap rooms in the basement.... More

The photos are misleading. DO NOT STAY HERE. Our 3-person "hotel" room (which was more like a REALLY BAD hostel) was three twin beds with dirty, holey sheets stuffed into a 1or 2 bed room. The safe was broken, there was no privacy for the shower, the windows didn't even operate and there was all kinds of "stuff" on the... More

Although its quite a shabby hostel, not the cleanest anyway, its location gives an amazing insight to Amsterdam. Located right on the canal of the central red light district it will certainly open your eyes. Myself and two friends stayed here for a week and although we were nervous of the surroundings at first it was perfectly comfortable and safe... More

We arrived at the hotel and had a bit of a shock when we discovered it was acutally a hostel! We had booked a quad room, the room itself was small - a bunk-bed and two singles squashed in. We also were suprised to find we were sharing a bathroom with the next door room. Location was very good -... More

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.
