Pros: Great location Helpful staff Good value for money Cons: steep small stairs & No lifts. so heavy luggage holders take a note. No wifi signal to the top floor rooms.

This hostel is in a really great location. A few cons though. First they do not accept credit/debit cards. Second, you have to pay a 10 euro deposit at entry for your key that you can return on the way out and get back your money. As my flight was at 10 a.m. in the morning we were leaving the hostel at around 8:00 and the front desk was locked so there was no way or returning the key & getting my money back...

In this hostel you have what you pay for...which is almost nothing. very steep stairs to arrive at the reception and at the rooms. very small reception where when you arrive your luggage will be stored without any kind of security. i was staying in a 8beds dormitory with a firend. the bed was quite comfortable and clean, the bathroom small, cold and very dirty. the street of the hostel is very loud especialy during the weekend untill 5/6am, dont expect to sleep well.

The bedclothes were smelling a lot.....you have to pay for everything(2 euro to rent a towel, if you want a locker it is something else) I will accept it if they will clean everything... Everything looked really small and claustrophobic... The only good thing was the location, completely central.

Thank you for the amazing stay during our stay in Amsterdam. You all were really friendly, and ready to give us any tip we needed. One comment: let the heat on until 10 am in the morning cause humidity killed us!! :)

I accidentally booked the wrong date on hostelworld so I emailed the hostel about the mistake and luckily, they were accomodating and allowed me to change it with minimal fuss! my ten bed hostel room had an ensuite bathroom, which is much more convenient and way bigger than the other showers!

The Hostel does not respect the % reservation payment on the website, to get you mention that they are not responsible for that money are made. The cleanliness of the toilets gives a lot to be desired. The only good thing is the location of the Hostel.

Good location, many bars etc outside the door in heart of Amsterdam. KeyCard entry, lockers is good. But you gotta rent their locks as it seems only they fit. Free Wifi. There is a tiny common area, no atmosphere. That theres no bedside plugsocket is shocking though and so you have to share 1 with 5 others. They have a balcony though seemingly it must always be closed. Toilet is fine if your a child or have growth defects. Shower just a room, nowhere for clothes. Apart from that tho...

Close to the train and about a 25 minute walk downtown. No common room or anything, but it's a place to sleep.

It was really dirty. The bathrooms were very gross and the beds seemed like they hadn't been cleaned in a while. The staff was nice enough though !

It was an average hostel but excellently situated. Tiny meeting room in reception which made it not such a sociable hostel. No kitchen but outside the door many cheap restaurants with 5 euro pizza and pasta so this wasn't an issue. Over all a pleasant stay.

The hostel itself was okay for the cheap price. The staff was nice and it was good situated. But the bed sheets were definitely not fresh! They seemed to be like 2 weeks old and smelled like swet, it was quite disgusting!

In my first night in the room of 6 people I had to sleep in a mattress in the floor with no blankets and no pillow (I was the 7º guy). The mattress was exactly the same than those used in the bed so that was not uncomfortable but a pillow and a blanket must be provided! Those are minimum conditions.. Beside this, everything was great and I would go back there if i stay in Amsterdam.

My room was on the second floor so the lack of elevator didn't disturb (but if you live upstairs that would probably be problematic, stairs are super steep and difficult to climb). Aterlall everything was great, staff was friendly and helpful, the location is just perfect as it is in the city center. I really enjoyed my stay!

for the price that it was the hostel was ok. the location is one of the few good things of the hostel. If you just want a place to sleep, go ahead. But don't expect a comfortable bed. maybe you will get some bedbugs! the worst was the showers and toilets! super small..

The shower is in a different room than the toilets. The shower is just in a room with the toilet, so you squeegee the floor when you're done! I found it odd. It's ok. There may be something better price wise, but it wasn't that bad. Staff were very nice. Although, make sure you lock up your stuff. Someone's cigarettes and phone went missing!

One of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. Never again. On the second night there I was already thinking about go to another place no matter how expensive it could be. The toilets were so disgusting and smelly, even the bogs in a dirty pub are better than this. Pay more and stay somewhere decent!
