Location is really good. It's close to museums square and vondelpark. Rooms are clean enough. Common Loo and the common baths are always busy and not useful. Internet connection is not good enough. Connection generally lost On the other hand you can find one of the cheapest 1 person room in Amsrerdam. Costs are around 25-30 €. Staffs are smiley...

We were here twice, for 2 days each, during our Netherlands trip. The location is a little away from the city centre and the the staff isn't very helpful. There are not enough bathrooms and people in the 4-bed dorm or 12-bed dorm on a floor share the same one. The WiFi is poor as well. We stayed in both...

Having read quite a few negative reviews on TripAdvisor, I was skeptical about staying here, but the price convinced me to give the Princess Hostel a go (it was the cheapest available accommodation at the time) I'm pleased I did - yes, it's not a hotel, and it's not spotlessly clean and tidy, but there are friendly staff, hot showers,...

Lovely staff, rooms are comfortable enough and the kitchen, although small, is well stocked. No social area though so really not good for meeting fellow travellers. Right near a tram stop and only about twenty minutes to the centre.

We booked this hotel for a last minute holiday, it was very cheap so we were expecting much. We read the reviews but decided to just go with it because it can't be that bad. And it really wasn't! Some of the reviews are so harsh. First of all, i wouldn't said it was dirty at all. The room was...

Good location, two tram stations at the corner. BUT 90% of what you pay goes for its location. Small stairs is difficult for carrying a heavy luggage, especially when you get to stay on the top floor. Bathroom, toilet, floor, wall, window, curtain are all dirty. Stay only when you have very little budget for accommodation.

They were nice enough to let us book a single night, a lot of other hostels don't allow it. I can't tell with any degree of certainty was the guy at the reception rude or high as a kite. My friend and I got a room, which is, honest to God, the smallest room I have ever slept in, there...

We had a room to ourselves which was very cramped, a double bed in the centre and a bunk-bed alongside. Once our big bags were on the floor there was literally no floor space but we had a nice little balcony so we'd take turns getting stuff sorted in the room. The kitchen was so small there was barely room...

Plugs in our room didn't work so we couldn't charge our phones. The shared bathroom was filthy and the room smelled bad. Bed linen stained and had holes in. Unpleasant stay. Left the hotel feeling grotty. Basic needs like clean sheets, bathroom and electricity not met hence poor review.
