Expensive, but you pay for location and definitely not the hospitality/cleanliness. It's a good location, as it's a 15 min walk to the train station in one direction and a 15 min walk to Vondelpark in the other. I came back after a day of...More
Pros: Very good location right off of Dam Square. Easy walk to Central Station and the Red Light District. There is a wonderful bike rental place right next door I highly recommend.
Cons: There is no communal area. Not a huge hinderance, but different, nonetheless....More
First the positive side: The hostel is right between (and very close to) the dam square and the red light district. It's basically right by a river where you can choose from various coffee shops and cafés :-) so the location is perfect!
Central Station Hostel's location can't be beat- literally in the middle of everything and off the main square, but surprisingly quiet. It's somewhat hard to find- very cramped quarters, and the stairs up are super steep. Staff is there but not terribly friendly. There were...More
Recently had a 3 night stay in this hostel and it is safe to say I would recommend it for anyone looking for somewhere central and worth the money!

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

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.

Hey, I stayed here this summer in a dorm for 10 people and there was just one bathroom in the room for everyone (male/female). It wasn't a small room but the beds were on the small side. As everyone used the bathroom it took a while to get in there in the morning and at night when everyone was in at the same time. Hope this helps and you enjoy Amsterdam!
