We had the double room at the top of the building which had a cool view, was clean and had masses of space. The location was perfect - so close to the main station and all the trams etc and easy walking distances to all the main attractions. Despite this, parts of the room were falling apart and there was... More

Upon arrival the hostel was decent, although our room was on the top (fifth) floor and there was no lift. Nevertheless, despite have paid for a 10 bed female dorm, not only did we have 11 females in our room (1 on a camper bed) but an older man seemed to have a room which could only be entered or...

I liked how this hostel was smaller than many I have been to. They kept the place really clean, including the rooms. It is an AMAZING location. One downside is that it didn't really have a kitchen if you were staying in the general mixed large dorms. It only had a microwave and mini fridge available.

Though the location's nice in the centre of the city, the staff were dismissive, rude and generally unhelpful. They acted like they just wanted to be left alone. Also, bathrooms were incredibly cramped.

I stayed for 3 nights in the mixed dorm. The hostel has some rules which is good. There are times for in and out. No smoking inside. You get a locker with deposit. The toilets and shower are clean. The beds and pillows are not comfortable, of course you're staying at a hostel. But if your plan is to walk... More

From the outside the hostel looks lovely. Brilliant location! However we were on the 8th floor (twin bedroom ) and there aren't any lifts. The stairs are very steep and after a long day walking around, they can be hard to climb. As soon as we opened the door to our room, there was a smell. It was an eggy/sicky... More

Stayed there for a few days by myself in the summer. I can't say anything about the hostel istelf, because I got very lucky and was booked into their all girl/10 people dorm in the building next door. The dorm is on the top floor, very spacious and has lovely plants and its own bathrooms. There are no bunk beds,... More

I have just return from a few days in this hostel, the location was very convenient and it was close to the station. I was disappointed that the hostel was shut between 4-6am, this information is not on the website and was very inconvenient because we were a group of 18/19 year olds. The staff in the hostel were also... More

The staff are all so rude and dull, you try to ask for directions and they will just shrug their shoulders and carry on staring at the computer. Place is an absoulte joke. The private room we were in absoulte reeked! Of God knows what but it was appalling. Already planning out next trip to Amsterdam and will be steering... More

The location of Aivengo is it's biggest drawcard. Located not a five minute walk from the central trainstation in Amsterdam, it's also walking distance from lots of main attractions and coffee shops. We booked a double bed room with ensuite and the room itself was quite nice, it was a huge space and included a small kitchen and couches. Lighting... More

Staying in Centrum

Neighborhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
