I went in March on a college trip- a big group of us
Very cold. Make sure you visit Anne Frank Museum; very moving
Heineken factory was a lot of fun too.
It is what it is! It is a cheap budget hostel! A hostel which is amazingly placed to tour Amsterdam central!
The ONLY people it is really perfect for would be fun loving, young people, groups and friends or people just in need of a cheap bed in Amsterdam for the night.
The bedrooms are like dorms, metal bunkbeds...a locker for your things.thats pretty much it. the shower is tiny...but bathroom okay.
There is a club downstairs which is great for cheap drinks and a laugh..with a crazy mirrored cube in the middle and a pole in the middle of that...greaat fun!
I think it is fab how the place plays on the whole hostel idea about the place making a joke of it...its really not that bad....just somewhere to sleep- which is all you really need on a flying visit to Amsterdam with some friends. cheap and cheerful!
