“Cheap and cheerful”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Arrived on a Sunday evening to a very pleasant welcome. Clean 8 bedded room with a view of the street all to myself - luxury. Facilities adequate rather than brillant but there was always soap by the loos which was very good. Nice breakfast provided. Slept well and carried on my way in the morning.

Cheap hostel so i don't understand the negative reactions. I stay for one night in a 8 dorm and that was ok. Oke there is no airco and u have to share a toilet with the whole floor, but again: it's a cheap place. Don't except any luxury.

Me and 2 friends stayed here for a night on the way to Amsterdam end of October, it was very cheap and didn't expect much but it exceeded our expectations, the receptionist was so lovely and happy, very helpful for our first time here. Also got wifi which was pretty good. Breakfast was simple but nice and was buffet style which was good. Definitely recommend for a few nights and would probably come back.

Great little hostel, really helpful receptionist, she gave us a map each, and marked routes to the city centre. The breakfast was a buffet of toast and cereals, various toppings, and for the price we had forgotten we were getting a breakfast at all so were impressed either way. Me and two friends stayed one night in an 8 or 10 bed dorm, can't remember which, we were warned that it would be noisy in the morning due to a group of 20 arriving, which was kind, but they weren't really noisy at all, hardly noticed. The area around the hostel is a bit dead but it's quite a quick walk to the city centre, probably about 15 minutes, so not a bad location at all, and probably the best for the price. Would definitely consider staying there again, really nice city, perfect to stop off in for a trip to Amsterdam, from England, as we did.

The receptionist was very very nice and helpful. She showed me anything I needed to know on a map and told me which tram to take.
The room was very cute and also clean, though not toooo clean, but ok. The mattress was very old. Sheets were for free and towels were 10€ deposit.
The toilettes were not very clean but that was not the fault of the cleaning person because she definitely did her job. People there just didn't seem to care about leaving it clean. But one thing really annoyed me: there wasn't any soap there!
Breakfast is simple but tasty and the coffee is quite good.
All in all it is a good place to stay. Of course it's a bit old and not a 5 star hotel but it's cosy!

After reading some of the reviews on this site, and having obviously found no cheap alternative, I made a reservation at this hostel but was somewhat afraid of what was expecting me. As always, reality lies somewhere between the extremes. I do agree with those who suggest that this hostel has quite a few weak points, but nothing that would justify an uproar. It is not very clean, but it is not dirty, it is not very quiet, but it is not really noisy, it is not charming and welcoming and attractive, and the neighborhood is really average, but it is quite cheap and safe. There are locks on doors and you need a key to enter your room and a code to enter the building in the evening at night! Breakfast ist abundant and excellent, the staff is very helpful. After reading the reviews on this site I brought my sleeping bag, but really the sheets were very clean. You can walk from the hostel to the station (10 minutes) and to the old city (20 to 30 minutes) and get to see lots of nice places on the way. Make your own experience and do not be afraid!

Room Tip: If you plan to arrive after 7 or 7:30 p.m., please make sure to arrange a late check-in, and do phon...
