I had a great experience staying here, I would definitely choose the same place for my next trip to Amsterdam. It's very cheap and good enough for the value of the money.


This hostel is centrally located, safe and incredibly spacious (I miss my bed there in female loft room!). The staff are helpful and efficient, thank you to all. Highly recommended.


very nice place. great location! nice and helpful staff. hot water and comfortable bed, that is all one need..


They where really nice to me they help me a lot with some issues that i had and also hostel is really good located!! You wont find something like that for the price! hope to see you soon!


Hostel is really close to city center.

Adequate, but not exceptional. It did the job with no frills. It would have been great to have a communal area to talk / hang out. There was a couch in the female 10 bed dorm, but obviously when you want to chat with your friends at midnight this is not ideal for the people who are trying to sleep! Your other option was just a couple of couches in the reception area, which isn't great. Biggest turn off for me was that there was no door to the bathroom in the 10 bed female dorm!!!!


Mixed reactionreallyu. Mattress was super duper thin that you can fell the metal bars of the bed. But they propped additional new mattresses on the old ones after a few days. It did help. But no kitchen to cook, only a microwave n kettle in the ladies dorm. No common room to mix n mingle with the rest. Not very friendly nor helpful staff. I tried to book a room for my return journey for one night and they told me to do it online, even when I was standing there at the reception.


Expensive for a 20 beds dorm, really cold in the rooms at night and no possibilitiy to get an extra blanket, cold water in the shower. Unconvenient curfew, NO facilities (bikes rental, kitchen, bar, parties, pub crawls, free walking tours...). However awesome location, just 3 minutes walking from Jordaan, the Centraal Station and the Red Light District.

We are cheapest in town :)


Great spot for startingnout in Amsterdam. Big dorms , great staff , and attractions/coffeeshops right around the corner


Great hostel, best in this city.


4 flights of stairs up to the room wasn't ideal with a suitcase. The room was so full they put mattresses of the floor for extra guests so there was 12 in and 10 person room. Very hot and stuffy in the room. If u just want some where to sleep it will do but not worth staying there if u want comfort or good atmosphere...

If I ever came back to Amsterdam I would definitely stay here again. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and accommodating to our group's needs, and overall the facilities were clean and pretty good, especially considering how cheap it was to stay there. The location was solid, about 10 minutes from Anne Frank House and the Red Light district, and then probably 25-30 minutes walking to the city center of Amsterdam (e.g. Vondelpark, Van Gogh museum, etc).

The hostel is near the central station as well as the red light district and other popular spots. This is the best thing about it. The staff is nice and they have discount cards to some establishments. The only downsides are 1. There's no lift, and we stayed at the topmost floor, so lugging around our stuff was quite tiring. 2. The wifi fluctuated. The signal is not strong in the room; even in the common room it's pretty weak.


A great little hostel to stay at if you want to be in the middle of everything! Stayed for 6nights Got to meet a lot of people! The owner and his wife were really helpful and super friendly and accommodating with useful information and tips while travelling! Owner was discussing renovations for the place and I think they have some great ideas in store! Would most certainly stay again at this hostel! PRIME location mins away from central station and bars/food market stores!!! :)


Nice little twinroom at the top floor. The stairs are pretty doable (it's 6 floors but it won't kill you UNLESS you travel with lots of luggage). Bathroom cleaned, linen ok (you'll get bathtowels for free at private rooms), just don't expect for a high quality mattress! Nice view from the shared kitchen. Really great location, safe for solo travelers , and easy to get to. Staff was ok (not the smiliest people in the world), although they'll provide you whatever info you ask and a city map.

Location is excellent... :) But, the stay would have much better if it has a good mattress, a blanket with cover and of course some extra socket plugs. There were just two socket plugs for 20 people and you can imagine how late night you need to stay just to charge your mobile/laptop. :(


Really cool hostel and great value for money. Quite quiet, no party vibe. I found it very comfortable and the staff were all lovely and helpful and friendly.


This is my favorite hostel. Wifi is fast (versus non-existent you would find elsewhere), it's a short walk from train station, the main sales point for me was the quality of people are far superior than what you will find elsewhere irregardless of price in this town.


Not a bad place, to stay a night or two. Could replace the blankets with something warmer. The guy at reception was really friendly and helpful.
