“Solid party hostel”
Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

Stayed for 3 nights. This hostel is in a great spot, right next to the Red Light District, tons of bars and close to the station. The bar has cheap food and drinks, friendly staff and a good atmosphere. Can be noisy at night but reception has free ear plugs. Breakfast and included and a good spread of the usual meats, cheese, cereal etc. Rooms are quite big with lockers under the bed.
Would definitely stay here again.

I found this place to be one of the best hostels I have stayed in, got there before check in and were able to dump our bags in a locker were given discounts on food and drink and the staff gave us some info on where to go to kill a couple of hours we opted to head to nemo the science centre (impressive structure) because of a running joke that I'm like dory and on holidays get lost and 'just keep swimming' cool thing about the location is that any time i wandered off and lost everyone I could just find central station and easily get home.
i loved the vibe of the hostel and the fact that you can meet locals in the bar area and every one is very friendly I found I spent more time in the hostel than I normally would and being chatty had a chance to meet the manager Allan on who is an awesome person and always smiled and took the time to say hello and make us feel really welcomed he and his team really helped to make us feel welcomed and taken care of any time of the day or night.
I'm not into the cafe scene but was dragged around by friends but when I got bored I could wander back to hostel which has the best beer prices I could find and meet people and have fun, even went out with a group of Americans who were travelling Europe and had my first ride on the bike taxi's it was daunting but a lot of fun also found that a bar crawl company that ends it's night at a club down the road which saved me staggering very far to my bed everyone in my dorm was friendly and the bathroom and shower room was always clean and hot water day and night and they have a disabled toilet if someone in your group needs it.
I had planned to see more of the cultural side of Amsterdam but it was a bit of a boys night out so that went slightly out of the window but due to its location I'm sure that when we next head down there we will be able to tick some things off our list.

Thanks a lot Allan and your team you absolutely made our holiday

Stayed here in Feb 2012, and going back there next week. Location is exceelent, staff are really friendly, rooms are clean, and decorated to look individual, but still basic, but who needs more than that in Amsterdam? Round the corner from Dam square and noodle and crepe supplies. PERFECT. Bar does 2 beers for 5 euros last time I was there so hoping for a repeat this time :)

Just back from a 3 nights stay in this hellhole! Our room was directly above a nightclub which means absolutely no sleep until 5am. We asked reception to be moved and were laughed at and told its whatnot expect ! I can handle noise but the room was vibrating. Food was disgusting and bar staff do not give you your discount, drinks expensive small cups watered down. Hotel has drug dealers on your door step who harass you very dodgy area . Hotel run by loads of different Australian people kinda a bit creepy It almost felt like the set of a horror film. Cleaners were rude and looked like mafia wife's! Beds all stained and wallpaper hanging off walls. Overall do not stay here !

We stayed here on New Years Eve and were looking for something reasonably priced and in a good location, this was the place! VERY comfy beds, warm rooms, hot water. Basic but perfect for what we wanted. The bar was reasonably priced too.

Wow! This hotel is sensational! Fantastic rooms, good value, really nice people! If you are like me and you find this feedback after days looking for the perfect location in Amsterdam for a few days, stop here and book it!
A few steps from the Train Station and on a very tipical street, the red district is right around the corner, really well located!
Our room had all over the walls posters, the roof was painted in red and black carpets on the floor!!! Wow!
Everything was very clean, and the bathroom huuuge!
A very good breasfast too!
Thanks to all the staff for this wonderful stay!

Stayed here for 2 nights in a private ensuite room. Room was very clean and tidy, showers were small but great. Breakfast was very filling and value for money is what this hotel is about. Staff are very helpful and speak great English. Got there a bit early but their is luggage storage which is safe. Room was positioned along side an alley way which was noisy at times but not a problem. The location of the hotel is close to dam square, red light district and very close to the central train station. At night their are a few dodgy people/ drug dealers hanging around the area but they aren't an issue and you just move on, so don't worry. Overall a great stay and would recommend to friends.
