Decided to buy breakfast every day rather than queue up for goop. - there's only 7... More

I have traveled a lot and I have stayed in a few horrible hostels. Amsterdam Hostel in San Francisco was by far the worst experience I have had. Not only was the place disgusting, but the staff is completely incompetent. I had booked a mixed dorm room for a colleague and I for 1 night. Upon arriving I discovered that... More

Spent the last three nights here. Reception staff were friendly enough but didn't go out of their way by any means. Blankets in dorms are glorified dog rugs. Very cold nights. Got woken up several times each night by a grinding metal sound which I couldn't identify, but this was at 3 4 and 5 am. Could be a much... More

Nothing fancy.. its just like any other hostel, sharing the room and bathroom with others! most of people there are young and like to meet new friends and chat. I meet really nice people there (its not your best option if you're looking for a... More

We spent 5 nights there. The absolutely nr 1 is the perfect location! It's really awesome - just a few streets from underground station or cable car! There's a good supermarket just around the corner ( 1 minute walking!), a pizzeria, a Subway and the shopping centre also a stone's throw away. The hostel itself is really nice and clean.... More

stayed here for 2 nights with girlfriend in a private room. If you are not too snobby is great (u should not expect luxury from hostels): it is really downtown located, 5 min walk from union square, great prices and they kept our bags for free for the day we had to leave. Also it was quiet,clean and had free... More

Booked AAE Amsterdam well in advance, got good rates on it. They offer discounted parking in a car park two blocks away which is great. Hostel in a fantastic location. Not too noisy but only a 5 minute walk from union square, and about 5-10 minute walk to Polk street where there are a lot of bars. Good washing and... More

Stayed here for 2 nights last weekend. No issues. Clean bedding, very clean bathroom and friendly staff. Didn't go for breakfast, but wi-fi was good. I was literally only in the room to sleep and shower, as was out exploring San Fran, but for me was delighted with paying $35 a night to do so!

Now I'm not snobby, nor am I a stranger to hostels. Hostels are normally great, clean, social places where fun can happen. Not at the Amsterdam Hostel. When we arrived for check in at 3pm we were told that there were no sheets for our bedding available until 5. This annoyed us because we'd been awake since 3am that morning... More

Fabulous hostel with some lovely architectural features inside. The hostel was very clean and nicely decorated. The beds were clean (as were the pillows which smelt very fresh - a pleasant change from other hostels). The staff were always very happy to help with all those touristy queries and in addition you got a free pancake breakfast with coffee or... More
