“Great price, great location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 12, 2012

The value for money here is fantastic. Heart of Amsterdam is located right between the Red Light District and there are tons of coffeeshops in the surrounding area. Although the Red Light District is a bit...seedy (to say the least) at night, one only has to walk a few minutes to find decent coffeeshops.

If you are actually going for the RLD then this is the place to stay as it's pretty much in the middle of it.

The rooms are very clean and tidy and we had one for just our friends so I can't comment on it as a hostel as there were no strangers in our room. The beds are comfy and the shower room is great, showers are really good. The rooms are dark/dimly lit though so if you are looking for a place to hang out in this is not it. We mainly used it to sleep and shower so we spent very little time in the rooms.

The breakfast is very varied and pretty decent for the price.

Great hostel to be honest, I recommend.

for experience movie theme in every room is fine, but for good rest, you definitely should find another hotel, drunken guess come on go all night, very noisy. Breakfast Menu is very limited. really not worth it.

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.
