They gave us a room for my friend and I although we had booked a shared room. Nevertheless, the toilet is extremely small and wasn't really clean. Moreover, its a shame they only store baggages until 1 PM.


Location isn't too far away from city center and has some good coffee shops nearby. But the hostel has a very tiny lobby so their isn't a good social atmosphere. Additionally this hostel isn't very cheap so it's hard to recommended.


Really, dont expect anything other than a bed. Would avoid.

This isn't your regular crash-in-hang-out plan. The hostel is located in well-populated area, thus the space is quite limited, so don't expect nor canteen or guest room. But still, it's a good value and I would recommend it for short stays with friends.


The hostel its in a good location but don't expect much more. One bathroom for every floor. No breakfast available. Just one plug in our room. One night there wasn't toilet paper in any bathroom. If you are staying in the same level as the reception, the shower is in the same area and its closed from around 10 p.m. to 8 a.m. so you will use another floor bathroom.


The hostel was definitely a good value for your money. The bathrooms were tiny and sort of dirty, also the Internet was hit or miss. But you are staying so close to everything for so little money that you really can't complain. Staff was helpful and let us leave our bags before check in so we could go explore.


This is a basic hostel. If you want to come to Amsterdam and just need a place to sleep then this is fine. But not a place to hang out and meet people. But it's very central and clean.


Security very poor as a guy who we had seen and asked for directions ages away from the hostel on our first day was in the hostel a few days later and asked us if we'd seen two English girl (which was us). Upon asking reception if he was staying in the hostel we were told he was not and had been roaming the hallways without even being asked to leave, this was not okay. The bed sheets were ripped and stained and room not in clean condition. Great location and get what you pay for


Great hostel for a great price


Improve the staff- very cold Should be a kitchen there

It was just a place to sleep. There was no comfortable common area to meet people. Had no "homey" feel. The location was good and it was fairly clean. The staff was okay, but we lost our deposit because we didn't checkout on time. (They never told us the time) Although it was only 10€, the guy didn't handle it very gracefully.


Our stay was great. The shower was a bit small but worked fine, wifi occasionally dodgy, but overall great experience. Benny (staff) was awesome and let us leave our bags there a little bit longer than the usual time (1pm) which made a huge difference in our Amsterdam experience!!


The hostel is very basic, the rooms have too many beds rammed in them and the mattresses are foam and very old. I could only use the wifi in the reception where the owners/workers were shouting at each other in Arabic which is so unprofessional and uncomfortable. Only stay here if you really have to.


I have spent 4 night in this hostel with my whole family. At the beginning i were scared about this hostel because of many negative references he has, but just aftet the check in, i felt vety good: the hostel is clean, nice, tidy and a big plus is the kindness of the staff, Abi was so welcoming with us and tried to give us best advices and solve any problems (we hadn't any problem there). I can say the room was good, with balcony and lockers, nice bathroom, excellent position. RECOMMENDED

I'll start off by saying the staff was incredible!! So friendly and helpful. My friend and I were supposed to be in a 10 bed mixed dorm but were upgraded to a 2 bed private dorm as soon as we checked in. Met some nice people in the hostel, and I'm glad the staff helped us out with everything. The room was clean, as was the rest of the hostel. Only downside was our room was on the top floor and wifi didn't reach, but it gave us an excuse to go down and talk to people. We had a great stay overall!

Very expensive for what it is .. Not really clean; not enough power outlets for the whole room, not really any common place except at the reception ..


shut it down.


The hostel was extremely expensive for what it was. We stayed on the top floor where the wifi did not work and the showers were either cold or scalding hot. The location is fantastic but we found more problems with this hostel than we should have for the price


Very good, felt completely safe staying/leaving my luggage there, the staff were accommodating and helpful, the beds were comfortable and clean, as were the bathrooms and the price is decent (especially considering how close it is to everything). Keep in mind it is a hostel and as such most of the residents are students looking for somewhere low in price to sleep after nights out and leave their luggage. Remember to bring a padlock+key for the lockers and 10 euros for key deposit.
