The stay was ok.. the breakfast delicious, the room was clean, the staff pretty nice. However, the price is way too high for such small rooms, over night it was cold even though the heater was on max, it would still not heat. All in all my friends and I (we were 4, stayed in a 6-bed room) had a good experience.

Hi!

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your stay!

About our price: we are one of the cheapest stays in the center of Amsterdam! Compared to other budget hotels and hostels we do not higher our price during summer of holidays.

We hope to see you again soon!

We took a tour of 20 people here and this is definitely great for groups. The beds arn't the most comfy, a little lumpy but the bathrooms and cleanliness of this hostel is fine.
Breakfast was nice and the staff are lovely too. Great location, there is a bike shop just next door where you can hire pedal bikes. It's a little run down but you get what you pay for!

Stayed here on a uni trip and manh of us were dreading staying here. Not sure what some of the bad reviews are about. The price reflects what's avaliable: bed and breakfast. Rooms are clean, only real problems are no ladders to the top bunk (came home with a bruised shin from getting down) and the bathroom was small and the shower head was fixed, meaning showering was difficult. Yet happy hour was good, in fact great. 'Snacks' from the snack menu were plenty big enough, if not too big for a snack. I ended up having one of the snacks for a meal to myself. Not a brilliant hotel, but not sure where the title of 'worst hotel' has come from and I work at a 5 star hotel. Also, mikes bikes next door were good. I would recomme using them if wanting to go further away from the hostel then the bulb market or the gallery around the corner. Also very close to a Ben and Jerry's ice cream cafe and an irish bar. Trams are useful.

I think it was better than what i expected although the price was quite expensive for what it is.. considering we had a shared dorm. Girls if you are travelling with just another girl or a few of you make sure you have a private room to yourself. I did not trust the guys that were in our room one night and it made me feel very uncomfortable. Luckily they only stayed one night. Rooms are really hot and downstairs in the bar smelt weird, but i suppose thats what you get when you stay in a hostel

They try to make themselves seem so bad, but some of the staff was actually pretty cool!! Some were rude, but so was the staff at other Amsterdam hostels. Very social vibe, always full of people. Good location, easy to get to. Fairly clean, again, not at bad as they try to make it seem with their funny signs and posters everywhere! Would probably stay here again...
