“Comfortable and basic, made some good friends”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Said it all in the title really, we stayed in a four bed shared dorm, everyone was really friendly, the staff were very accommodating, Don't be put off by the fact that the hostel is above what appears to be a Chinese restaurant! The rooms are clean and comfortable, although perhaps a little noisy. We knew Amsterdam already so I can't really comment on how useful the staff would have been, but they seemed pleasant and would, I'm sure, have been willing to help.

Reception open 24 hours so wasn't a problem that my flight was delayed and I couldn't check in till about midnight. Easy walk from the Centraal Station and felt safe in the area by myself at night.

Rooms are pretty small with a shared bathroom but everything was clean and tidy. Only thing is it was really hot! Just needed a fan in our room but other than that cannot complain for the price and location. Classic case of paying for what you get really. Would stay here again!

We stayed there for five nights with my girlfriend in a shared room with a shared bathroom, despite being so small, it was clean and neat to stay also pretty cheap. It's right in the centre of Amsterdam. don' need any hospitality as they serve everything you already need.

Extremely close to Dam Square and Centraal station. Rooms fairly clean although a bit small for 8 people sharing. Friendly staff. Very cheap - worked out around 25 euros a night. Cheap drinks from cafe below. Ideal place to stay for someone wanting to visit Amsterdam cheaply.

This hostel is situated very central to Amsterdam Dam Square and about 10 minute walk from Central Station. Trams stop right outside the hostel to venture around Amsterdam.

One member of staff at a time is at the reception area where they have a pool table and Cold Drinks/Snacks on display.

Rooms are clean and polite staff with helpful

It is located in the heart of city, it had a great location. It was also really close to the central line which we used almost every day. Didn't have to worry about random drunks coming in and making noise because they compared i.d.s to a guest list at the door. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to have a great…I strongly recommended…
