The room was the size of a closet and the doubleroom we had was with bunkbeds. We were not informed that their definition of a doubleroom included a bunkbed. The bathroom was the size of a stamp and a shower basically took place standing in the toilet. Apart from that the bathrom was dirty and there was no hot water or towels! The staff was rude when we returned at night and slow to let us in. The room was facing a very busy street and there were several people talking outside through most of the night. The price was far too high for what we got and the only reason we stayed was that we had already visited several hotels that were booked. The price was far too high for the level of service and the (complete lack of) quality of the room. DO NOT STAY THERE!!!

The staff there are very friendly and helpful. The cleanliness and comfort of the room/bed are better than expected. But of course don't expect too much. You get what you paid for. All I needed was a clean room/bed to sleep for 2 nights. I love the surrounding neighbourhood. It's close to Sarphati market. And there is a street market nearby.

Room Tip: 4-person dorm is way much better 10-person one, and the prices are not much different

I was very willing to give this hotel a 3-3.5 star rating when I got home. However, after checking my bank account, I saw that they had charged my card TWICE for a ridiculous fee. I'm now out over half of my pay check for 10 days because they didn't tell me they would be holding money just in case we didn't show. Absolutely ridiculous.

The rooms were small, bathrooms pretty dirty, nowhere to lock valuables, and we didn't even bother with the 'breakfast'. The only good part was the cute kitten who also lived there and the one person at reception who was helpful. The kitchen is tiny, and not really a good area to meet people, as only about 12 people could eat there comfortably. It's also a bit of a trek from the city centre if you'll be spending a lot of time there or have an early tour after a late night.

Overall, I wouldn't stay at this hostel again if I went back to Amsterdam. It's not worth the trouble of missing half a paycheque or the walk to the city centre.

Room Tip: Stayed in Room 23 - it was pretty average. No ladders to the top bunk, so if you're on the botto...

First day in the Netherlands. Came from Australia. This is a tourist area, so everything is bloody expensive. After trawling the streets till my legs hurt, j found sarphati. They checked me in late at night, and gave me a clean bed with fresh sheets and a clean towel, all for €10. I had the whole dorm to myself, so don't believe the stories about how every dorm is noisy. It's a good place to relax, charge your phone, and research the next step of your trip. Like finding a cheap bike. Good luck with that!!

Good hostel overall. Plus side: interesting and handy location, very pleasant and helpful staff, free breakfast, house cat and kittens. Down side: cramped rooms, and all a bit frayed around the edges.

Room Tip: There are no bedside lights (as advertised) - bring a torch if you want to read in bed.
