Heart of Amsterdam
Ranked #97 of 238 Specialty Lodging in Amsterdam
Reviewed November 1, 2012

We booked a triple room with en-suite bathroom and had the room to ourselves. The place is located right in the Red Light District (note that taxis can't get to the hostel at night cos the road will be closed for pedestrians). The room itself was alright with bunk bed and single. Basic but clean. There's a tv, wifi and individual lockers (you have to pay). The toilet and shower were separate but tiny. The walls were paper thin and noises from the street can last late into the night. Breakfast is provided and consists of bread, cheeses, ham, spreads and cereal. Like many hotels in Amsterdam, there is no elevator and the stairs are a little narrow. Overall it was an ok place.

Location was perfect. Good breakfast. Hostel was not that clean, though. I made the mistake to stay in a 12 bed room. We had people walking in and out all night long. I just think it was too expensive for what that was. Not a good vibe really.

The Hostel smelt awful. The receptionist was unfriendly and unhelpful. The rooms are tiny. The stairs leading up to the hostel are dangerpus. There are permanent road works outside and the atmosphere is dire. We didnt even stay it was that bad. Seriously needs decorating. A mens only hostel. waste of my deposit. Livid to say the least.

Room Tip: Dont book here. Its awful and theres plenty of nice hotels there.

I have stayed at the heart of amsterdam hotel for the last 2 years and think this is a awesom hotel. For anyone who is going to amsterdam for the coffee shops this is the hotel for you. Its situated perfectly with a coffee shop just across the canal and loads more near by. Its clean and has friendly staff. The hotel has movie themed rooms (we stayed in pulp fiction and highlander), basically just a picture on the wall but quite cool when experimenting, lol. Would definately come back here!!

Clean hostel, in central location. For a hostel I was quite impressed with cleanliness and friendliness of staff. I usually prefer hotels for security purposes, but would stay again.
