We stayed at the Amsterdam Hostel in April, and we were satisfied with our accomodation. The hostel is great, the staff is really nice, the people are great! They offer free breakfast - pancakes :) The location of hostel is the best, near Union square.

Stayed there 2 nights. Quite expensive for what you get. Detergent for laundry was free. Kitchen was bad - poorly equipped! Top bunk beds had no rails. Atmosphere was not as good as in other hostels. No control over temperature in dorm room. You get discount for public parking one block away....

This is a hostel that's conveniently located with shops and food nearby. I've got a room on a budget with ensuite bathroom. It can be noisy but bearable due to the thin walls. Room & bed's comfortable. Has a TV, fridge and even room heater. Has a shared kitchen where you can cook in but busy with travellers in the... More

One of the cheapest in the city, nothing special but rooms are alright and breakfast is a bonus. Staff were good and location is really ideal. Definitely could be cleaner in room and kitchen, pillows were tiny and mattresses very soft. Overall ok stay

When arriving at the hostel after a 12 hour flight we were told there had been a system failure on their computer meaning that our booking had been cancelled and the hostel was full. We then had to find alternative accommodation at very short notice and a higher price. We then returned the next day and were told we had... More

I stayed in the Amsterdam Hostel with 3 friends on a recent trip to San Fran. The hostel is in a good central location to explore the city. The room was basic but adequate with a good en-suite and comfortable bunk beds.

Best ubication, beds not too bad, hot water, complete kitchen, aceptable breakfast. It was a good experience in general. Is not a super hotel but if you are just looking for a place where you can sleep, definitely this is a good one for this price. I recommend it

It's not as bad as what some people made out. Sure it's old but I was expecting way worse from the reviews. Over priced for what is it but it was the going rate for the area. There were 4 of us so we got the 4 bed dorm. The only thing I have to say it that we had... More
