If you're looking to party in Amsterdam, this hostel is perfect for you. It's location is perfect, right next to a lot of bars and clubs. If you need to get some sleep while in Amsterdam then it may not be so good because it is fairly noisy throughout the night. There are no lockers in the room, but you can lock valuables in the storage closet. The works hard to be as helpful as possible. The bathroom was kept clean as well. I had a great stay here and highly recommend this hostel.

There's no storage lockers so you must either check them in with the staff or keep them on you. Location is literally in the middle of the leidseplein crazyness. It's super loud at night so expect that. 100% party atmosphere. Not the dirtiest, but also not the cleanest I've stayed in so far.

It was an okay place to sleep at night. Had bed bugs, smelled bad and was to hot to sleep at night. Way overpriced. Would not stay here if other hostels are available

Hostel is located on a very noisy street, but it didn't bother me. I stayed in a mixed 6-bed ensuite. Beds were fine but there were only 2 outlets for us all. The bathroom was less than ideal. The shower was on top of the toilet and caused everything to remain wet and dirty after someone showered. Most of the staff were very friendly but the manager was rude. Its in an excellent location in Leidesplein, right next to several trams and buses and very easy to walk to everything.

Very friendly staff - happy to help you 24/7 with anything. A great hostel if you want to party each night, as you are right in the thick of it. The rooms are noisy from the partying on the street below all night - not a problem for most people but it should be mentioned. Overall I enjoyed my stay.

Terrible. 89 euro for the weekend. 12 person bed has 1 washroom so you had to wait in the morning to use it. Very hot - worst hostel I have ever stayed in

The hostel is quite well situated with coffee shops, bars and restaurants and canals all nearby. The dorm rooms are fine and bathrooms very spacious and clean. What it lacks however is a common area or any facilities for making/eating meals and hanging out. There is a deck area but when we took a few beers outside got told very quickly we weren't allowed to hang out there it was only for a quick smoke...disappointing as a little extra space to socialize is exactly what this place needs!

Great location in one of Amsterdam's busiest places to go out at night,. The rooms, and bedclothes were clean and the lounge/reception was a very good place to hang out, 10-15 minutes away from Dam Square and 20 minutes away from the airport by bus no. 197. The only bad thing was the breakfast, which consisted of sandwich bread (no toaster) with peanut butter and jam. There was also coffee, but there was not milk to go with the coffee and there was a sort of double cream instead.

Good hostel, in a good location if you like partying like us! Right in the main square of bars etc. Pretty easy to find with the directions, breakfast is the worst one we've had yet and we didn't even eat it. I wouldn't class bread with peanut butter or jam as breakfast (no toaster) especially if you only like butter on your bread! They need lockers as well, no where to store money there is just a locker room for valuables but doesn't seem very safe. Overall we had a good stay

Overall a good hostel, but you should be aware of a few things. First, the hostel is in the center of a district that is very loud and busy until sunrise, so expect it to be incredibly noisy at night. If you need to sleep, bring earplugs. Also, there are no lockers in the rooms, so you need to check your valuables at the front desk. Don't expect very comfortable beds, but the showers had lots of hot water and great pressure.

Not the greatest ambiance at the hostel, but staff is friendly enough.

Considering what I've paid for the bed, the facilities are quite good! I just wish they'd have a locker in the room, and some furniture to keep luggage and clothes tidy. The atmosphere was good during my visit. It is largely dependent on the guests on the particular period. But the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Kitchen was dirty, and a window was broken in the room in a cold and noisy evening
