Our family of 3 stayed here for 2 nights on July 27th. This hostel was more like a hotel with modern amenities. The room was very clean, private and extremely quiet. This is the first time I have stayed at a hotel where the light from the hall and windows was totally blacked out at night! Wifi was complimentary and worked in the room as well as the common areas. The towels and soap/shampoo was complimentary as well and overall this stay was an extremely good value. The staff was very helpful in giving us helpful information for site seeing. We found the location to be perfect for our family. It was just one stop (about 12 min) from the airport and we could see the hotel as we were sitting on our train and so it was super easy to find from the station and just next door for ease of pulling luggage. We took the train to Central station downtown to enjoy the old world charm of Amsterdam with the canals and unique houses and museums. We were able to get away from all of the crowds at night to enjoy a nice rest and refreshment before returning the next day. The breakfast spread was amazing and a good value for the money. It was crowded, but efficient and we enjoyed being around such friendly travelers. We used the kitchen one night to heat some food we bought at the market at Central station for an inexpensive meal.
