The hostel was nice and pretty secure. We had a private room with a balcony. Only problem was that the balcony door would not lock. The beds were firm, pillows and blankets were soft and cozy. Pretty clean establishment. Breakfast is complimentary, they have an elevator, bar, pool tables and outdoor seating. The have a club next door but we went out for the night. I'd go here again.

We stayed in a "Superior Double" which was not as clean as I was expecting, although for the price we paid there was nothing to complain about. A few hairs were found on the sheets and the carpet/balcony were not very clean, although having access to a balcony was very convenient and the view onto Warmoesstraat was pleasant. Friendly staff, convenient lockers. Lovely atmosphere. The Winston served its purpose well as we did not come to Amsterdam to sit in our room all day! Overall positive experience. Would definitely stay again.

We were strongly advised by friends to stay here, however after travelling throughout Europe, it was definitely not the best value for money. We paid a lot more here than elsewhere and it definitely was not the best. Rooms were quite clean, toilet was noisy, lockers under the bed were broken and therefore unuseable. Apart from this, the bar was good, food was good, (except breakfast but its free so usually arent great) and location is ideal. But could get something similar for cheaper.

First time we had ever visited amsterdam and for some, stayed in a hostel. We are a group of 6 english girls, all 18 and we were not expecting the quality we recieved!
The hostel is in the middle of all the buzz and about a minute walk from dam square! Train station is easy to find.
We booked a private 6 dorm at a very reasonable price!
Our bedroom was basic but was perfect for us! The bathroom was large and the shower was always hot and we had no complaints at all!
Staff were super friendly and the atmosphere was so laid back and inviting
Belushi bar served the best food and we hardly ate anywhere else because of the excellent discount and quality! Garden was lovely, decoration was modern and we experienced no problems apart from a broken door handle!
At night time, it does get noisy and early morning you can hear the church bells - however, ear plugs are free we just didn't wear them and our window was always left open to keep cool, so this problem can be avoided.
This is deffinately the place to go for young groups of travellers and friends and we would highly recommend it
Already planning our next trip back here!

In such a good location - right in the red light district and close to the centre of town. Rooms are decent ann bathrooms quite small. Breakfast included and service was great. Bit noisy as there is a bar down stairs but they hand out free earplugs to you. Really good vibe, lots of fun. Would stay here again.

I found the staff friendly and the bar a great place to eat, drink and people watch. I had zero concerns for safety as a 32 year old female traveling alone. I stayed in a large room with others and shared a small shower and sink. It was terribly overpriced in this regard. The location was solid but for sharing so little space, not much bang for your buck.
