“Excellent Location and Good Bar”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2013

3 of us stayed here while on a football trip to Amsterdam and had booked a room for 4 but we had it to ourselves. The location is ideal for all Amsterdam has to offer with everything being within walking distance and the hostel also rent out bikes if that's up your street. Dam Square is about 15 minutes walk and there are bars and restaurants at the end of the street. The rooms are pretty much what you would expect, bunk beds, lockable wardrobe (you need a padlock), toilet and shower. The hostel supply bedding which you get on arrival and just make up your own bed and I have to say, they are pretty comfy. The bar in the hotel is quite good, it's also really busy and has a good atmosphere. They were selling pints of lager 2 for 1 on the night we arrived which was the cheapest we had paid during the whole trip. Couldn't comment on the breakfast as we ate out but there are vending machines at reception for water, juice and snacks. WiFi is available in the common areas.

Expensive rooms, long waits for breakfast, unpleasant staff...once checked out they didn't want to rent us bikes neither they allowed us to wait for the shuttle to the airport inside the building, they litterally threw us out of the hall despite the rain outside...
Definitely not my best experience ever.

Stayed here with a group of 12 friends for two nights. This is not the type of accommodation I would usually book, but a friend made the reservation and I was so impressed with my stay. Such a great price and included a good continental breakfast. The hostel is very large and busy, however not once did we get disturbed by other guests or have to complain about anything. Check in and out was very efficient, you do have to leave a €25 deposit per person. The room was clean and simple but was perfect for our needs. There was a good mix of people, young, old and families staying here and it seemed to be suitable for everyone. We took the train from the airport and then a tram which was easy and didn't take very long. To return to the airport we took the bus over by the casino and it was cheaper and quicker than the train and tram.

This hostel is great. We found it to be within walking distance of everywhere we wanted to be in Amsterdam. The price was low, the hostel clean, breakfast was provided too! Prices in the bar were reasonable. There was a good atmosphere in the bar & in the rest of the hostel, we felt safe & able to come & go as we pleased. There was always somebody on reception and people can only go upstairs to where the dorms are if they have a key. The outside of the building is very amsterdam! You could purchase locker keys, toiletries & amsterdam passes. There was also a book exchange. There is the possibility to stay in a private room or in a room with guests you don't know. There is also a games room and computers with internet. I would / will use this hostel again if on a budget trip to Amsterdam :) This is a great place for stag do's & holidays with friends, this isn't going to be for you if you're after a couples holiday (bunk beds!) or 5* luxury but if you're just after a base to leave your stuff as you go exploring & a place to sleep this is the place!

I stayed here with a stag group last weekend, it was grand, clean tidy and secure. We had a room for six. 3 bunk beds, breakfast was included but I never made it so can't comment. Wifi was ok. Hostel bar was grand, prices were very reasonable. Towels could be bought for 4.5 euro. Toiletries and locker keys also available to purchase. You are only across the road from the Hard Rock Cafe. Great location beside a beautiful park.

What I liked the most was the location right in front of the stunning vondelpark, the breakfast was amazing, the staff were all very friendly and the atmosphere of the hostel was very nice and comfortable. Just found a bit pricy, don't know if it was because it was queen's day, but the rest was just fine.

Nice hostel with great environment, cool bar. games room, OK internet. The room was alright, clean, the staff was also alright. The best things about the Hostel is the location and the breakfast! Great value!

Another thing, dont go far looking for a bike rental, they have nice bikes for a fair price.
