Too expensive for the bad costumer service and uncomfortable beds. Stayed here for a few nights in the fantastic city of Amsterdam. We rented bikes at the hostel and had a great time riding along the canals, even though it was kinda scary bike-traffic! Too bad the staff at the hostel kind of ruined the experience upon leaving the hotel.

It was fine, it's a hostel in the middle of Amsterdam. It's expensive but it was high season. If you want better then plan ahead. Checkin/out was painless. Never met the 5 other guys I shared a room with.

This is the worse hostel/hotel i have ever stayed in. I would have rated it as no stars if possible. When we arrived, staff were disgustingly unhelpful, not greeting us and just grunting in response. We were told our room was on the forth floor (which in itself was not an issue), however, there was no working lights or windows... More

The 6 bed dorm was insanely small, the beds also, with no ladder to get to the higher beds, ceiling very low. You can barely sit upright on the higher beds. The location was good, and the staff was nice. But the breakfast was in another building.

We ended up at this place because we had no other to go. They cut our heads off with the price and the atention was poor, they retrieved from us the money from the keys, bad beds and cold rooms in winter. Just terrible. Location may be the only good thing, but this place should be your very last choice.

This is possibly the worse place that I've ever stayed. I have bite marks all over my body. The bathrooms were horrid. Not a place where you feel refreshed after having a shower. I will not be staying there again, only + side is its next to a café

The breakfast was not very good, just bread coffee/tea, jelly and peanut butter. The bedroom and bathroom was good and cleaned. But there was no curtains for the shower, so, after the bath there was water all over.

The hostel is a two minute walk to all the cafe's, bars etc. You get what you pay for! The hostel was clean and we didnt have any problems. It was a bit noisy but overall, a perfect place to lay your head!
