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!
