Reviewed March 10, 2014

We stayed in a twelve bed dorm which was clean, comfortable and save. We absolutely love it to stay in your hotel. Overall the hotel had a nice vibe to it, specially with the bar where you can smoke ( marihuana ) and have a beer till way after midnight. after four things become more complicated however for those that like to make it late.

Staff in general is very friendly and inviting but the receptionist was at night can be grumpy to say at least. Changing money for the machines and get some information was impossible because one of them was sleeping in the bar and your other receptionist could not change. The second night we wanted to use the toilet in the bar and we found it very strange to see your receptionist ( Spaniard ) sleeping there again. A minor inconvenience.
This hotel is truly worth to visit.

Your faithfully,

Laura weichselbaum

I stayed here and found the location of the hotel to be very good, the staff very friendly and welcoming , The private room was of a good size and standard and had all mod cons, The food in the lounge was very good, the beer was also very good.

I would recommend this hotel and will be back in June ;-)

i was so nervous about going to stay in a hostel, however it was not bad atall. The coffee shop below was great could always get a seat to just chill out. The rooms were ok, beds were clean, bathrooms clean, plenty of space for all of us. The hostel was in a really good position as everything is on the doorstep. staff were helpful and friendly. Didnt really rate breakfast but that was ok as plenty of places nearby. will defo be going back!

Brilliant location, friendly and helpful staff. 5 of us stayed in the dorms, great for a base, everything is on the doorstep. Good bar and breakfast was adequate. Can smoke in the bar. Amazing price. Had a weirdo in our dorm, he didn't move from his bunk, just sat on his laptop, but he must have just loved the bulldog. Recommended to lots of friends. Wouldn't stop anywhere else

We stayed as a group of 9 friends for 2 nights at Bulldog in a private dorm room. The best asset of Bulldog is the unbeatable location right in the centre of Amsterdam, only a few minutes away from main station, coffee shops, red light district etc.

Staff is super friendly and helpful and there is free delicious breakfast included. There is a coffee shop just next to the hotel and smoking is allowed in the cool lobby/bar area of Bulldog, which is also a good place to meet people. Room size is good, cleanliness is perfect and in our dorm there were two combined shower/toilet facilities available. The only thing where I think Bulldog could improve is the design/atmosphere inside the rooms.

To sum up, it's a safe bet and I would totally recommend this place. Thumbs up!

just back from a weekend stay, wouldn't classify this place as a hostel more a hotel, travelled as a group of 7, had a private dorm to ourselves, room was very spacious with our own private shower and toilet. beds were very comfortable and clean, on arrival we were checked in straight away, were able to come and go as pleased, the food downstairs was lovely, lovely staff, all in all a great stay at a reasonable price, would definitely stay here again
