This hostel has a good location right in the middle of red light and so close to Dam square. Breakfast was poor and finish little bit early. Most people i saw wake up for breakfast and go to bed again. They clean the room everyday and change the sheets which is good. Staff is ok.
I would stay there again. Nice place.

Facilities were clean and well maintained, breakfast plentiful and staff very courteous and helpful and free wifi. The bed its self was a bit small (but then I'm quite tall) but overall not bad for a hostel at that price.

Two friends and I stayed at the Heart of Amsterdam for two nights during May, one night in an eight bed dorm and the other night in a private room. The beds were clean and comfortable, but the hostel in general could do with a clean. It's clear that a lot of money was originally put into this place what with the themed rooms, secure private lockers and ensuites - but it could benefit from regular cleaning. Maybe the staff don't want to carry the vacuum up the traditional style Amsterdam staircases. That being said, the staff were friendly, welcoming and very helpful.

The hostel is in a fantastic location if you want to be close to the Red Light District or Dam Square. A truly great location if you want to explore Amsterdam at a reasonable price. Despite being not the best hostel I've stayed at, I would 100% stay here again purely because of the location.

I went here for a stag do last year and I think it was ideal for 8 english lads doing this or travellers but thats it. the price was £40 a night and this was so over priced for a bunk bed in a room of 12 with people you dont know. If I wasnt on a stag do I would have been upset!

If you want to stay in the red light district this is the place, I stayed in an 8 bed room with friends. The room was clean and basic, the bunk beds were comfortable. Take ear plugs as it can be a little noisy but if your out for a good time and want to be in the heart of the district STAY HERE!!!
