“Way Better Than What I Expected”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

My friend booked this as she had been to Amsterdam many times & stayed there. She is all about going on the cheap & when I heard hostel I nearly backed out. Was actually suprised at the rooms. We had a twin with our own bathroom. It was small but clean & comfortable. Also had a flat screen tv with a good few channels. Rooms were not sound proof and woke many nights because we could hear every footstep as people passed the rooms. It had wi-fi in reception but was alway busy with back packers. Had to pay up front on arrival which i didn't like as I hadn't the cash, luckily my friend had. Buffet breakfast was not for me. Grabbed some bread & juice, was sitting down to eat it when a large cat sat in the chair across from me. I promptly left & didn't eat there again. Hotel is located across the road from Van Gogh & many other museusms. Only about 5-10 minutes walk from Hard Rock Cafe & trams & buses pull up around the corner every few minutes. It is in an ideal location and don't be put off by google maps as the distances appear alot further on it. Probably wouldn't return to it again because of the cat situation but overall it was ok.

Room Tip: If you want a nice hotel with a good breakfast avoid it unless you like cats

Not a great hostel, but not terrible either. I'm sure you can get a better one for the same price though. Room was clean and wireless services downstairs. Had a terrible nights sleep due to being able to hear everything from the floor above and below.. staff at reception were generally friendly. Key system is an absolute joke and makes no sense whatsoever.

Location: it is a 45 min walk to the central station and 35 min to the city centre. Pretty far a walk but the 72 hour travel pass covers unlimited travel on bus, team and metro within amsterdam and worth a buy. The hotel is 5 min walk to the van gogh museum and rijkmuseum though! The place is nice and quiet and I slept very well! Less sleazy than apartments near the city centre.

Room: spacious and clean. VERY huge and nice toilets.

Service: receptionist at times were rather unfriendly but efficient. The rooms were not cleaned during my three day stay. Only garbage was emptied.

Food: breakfast was fresh and decent. Go early though! A lot of the better breads and eggs are gone after 9!

Overall: wasnt the best accommodation of my trip cos of location but still very worth its value.

Maybe didn't have as cool of an atmosphere as other Amsterdam hostels I've stayed at before but it was perfectly fine for what I needed. I just wanted a good base form which to properly explore the city this time, so I didn't really want a crazy party "stoner" hostel. Everything was very decent, nothing too exceptional and there's a pretty good chance I would stay here again if I ever come back to the 'dam in the future. The location is really good, this part of the city isn't very touristy (well the Van Gogh museum is quite close, but other than that) so the area has bit more of a "local" feel than the Red Light District or other neighbourhoods closer to Centraal Station and the Vondelpark is quite close as well which is great when the weather is good.

after reading a lot of mixed reviews (some really bad) after I had booked it, I was scared to stay here expecting something from hell, but my experience was really good at this hostel. no signs of bed bugs at all, clean, cleaners cleaned our room and bathroom everyday providing us with clean towels etc, breakfast was good, staff were friendly, room sizes were pretty standard for hostels, cheap, great location and we met some amazing people here - nothing bad to say at all. Would definitely recommend!

For the money you pay expect to get what you pay for. The rooms we had were small but clean, the staff were nice and helpful and location wasn't bad at all! You jump on the excellent tram service and ten minutes later you in the heart of Amsterdam. I will say that the breakfast was pretty terrible though. If you stay here id suggest you eat out instead. We didnt stay in the dorms down stairs so our room upstairs was decent and good for what we needed it for. For the 3 nights we stayed, it wasn't bad at all :)
