I think this is a fine hostel. The location is great, right in the middle of the nightlife of Amsterdam. If you want a quiet place you properly shouldn't go there, but if you want to experience the Amsterdam nightlife it is perfect. It is not great luxury but it is acceptable. I only was there for one night and didn't really had contact with the stuff. But they where there at 6 am to clean some drunk guy's mess up and that was something I was really happy about.

It is a great place, very close to the night life! Nice people and staff are good to, bit moody at night time, but other than that very helpful friendly and humorous. Its a good price for what you get. Would stay again if i came back!

Good location and value for money. One of the guys at reception was very helpful but the other was a bit rude. It gets pretty hot and there is a cat running around (even in your room!) - not particularly clean. Otherwise it's a reasonable hostel and I would probably stay there again.

Location is great. Besides that the rest is pretty crummy, bed was small and pillow was terrible. Shower would overflow and get all over the bathroom floor

the bathroom was disgusting! I told reception twice our bathroom light was out and to clean the bathroom but after 2 days still nothing so had to shower in the dark. The night audit guy is so useless!! I told him about the light he said he'll change it, spoke to him later that night he said he did but he didn't he lied. There is no atmosphere! Don't stay here if you're solo No bar! They lied They don't help to book tours or museums. Not worth the money. Only if there is absolutely no else

Good hostel, safe and in a good spot, 15' far to the Dam square (walking). Staff was helpul, after I checked out I had to pay 3€ to store my backback but it was fine, still better than dragging it with me for the whole day. Pretty clean, a guy passed every morning to clean up the dorm (very needed when you have smashed people sleeping on the floor ahah).

Bathroom was disgusting! So much mould, one PowerPoint in the whole room no kitchen, so over priced for the quality of hostel! You stay here if there is no where else to stay! Night man useless when he is high which was the whole time!

The hostel is far from de Central Station. They don't offer lockers in the roooms. But I liked very much mu stat over there. Only these two points I think they could improve.

Impossible to sleep during the night due to the clubs in the front street. The conditions of the bathroom was critical. Personals unfriendly and arrogant.

This is not a bad Hostel, just nothing stands out to give it higher rating than average. The 24 hour reception and breakfast (toast and jelly) in the morning is a nice touch. The day staff is helpful with all your questions. It is about a 20 minute walk to the city center. There was no AC in the room and the electrical outlets were limited. A plus side is that the area it is in provides cheap food by Amsterdam standards.

Pretty nice place to stay! Aside for having to pay to have your luggage watched after checkout, the rooms were nice and so were the people. Would've been nicer with a better common room atmosphere but besides that, a good location if you don't mind not being right in the red light district.

At night it was very loud as the hostel is above a bar. Didn't bother us as we were out anyway but don't stay here if you want a early night!

There was a mix up with our booking so we had to stay at another one of their hostels (Amsterdam Hostel Uptown). Overall, it was a great experience just a little too expensive for what they are offering.

Location of the hostel is perfect to explore the city. Room and en-suite clean and a good size. However, it was disappointing that there is no card machine, storing valuables is entrusted solely to the staff at reception and the free breakfast consisted of bread and jam. For the price, we felt a better selection should be provided.

Thank you for your feedback. Breakfast is free and included in the price. Greetings

No lockers in the rooms which creates an annoying system with reception. Also not much place to hang out and meet people.
