I was very comfortable staying at Hello I'm Local Boutique Hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful. The accommodations were clean and safe. The hostel is a little further from Amsterdam center than one might anticipate, so heads up on that. Otherwise it's nice to see a beautiful Holland town outside of the touristy bustle of Amsterdam.

If you're travelling by car they will direct you to free parking a few minutes walk away. Breakfast is fairly simple and inexpensive, it is served... More

We stayed here for a friend's wedding, and really enjoyed this boutique hostel. We had the Heem double room, with an en suite shower (toilet directly opposite our room, in the corridor). The room was comfortable and clean. We'll remember the charming and friendly staff - thank you for the lovely stay!

Hello I'm Local combines the best of a hotel and a hostel. We stayed in a private room with a shower (toilet in the corridor) but there are also bunk rooms at a cheaper price. Towels are provided and the sheets are crisp and clean. The staff are very friendly and helpful and there is a small kitchen area to... More

I had a wonderful time. The room was unique, breakfast was fantastic! Especially the hot chocolate. The location was central enough to walk to many attractions like St. Bavo's, the Teylers Museum, and Grote Markt. Your staff was so friendly and attentive and helped make it a great experience for my young daughters as well! Thank you!

After struggling to find a suitable place, at a reasonable price, in Amsterdam for our group of 21 females, we extended our search to Haarlem. In hindsight, this was a blessing in disguise and meant we got to enjoy a couple of nights in the charming little town, just a 20 minute train ride from Amsterdam Centraal. The hostel itself...
