Staff were amazing, so helpful and friendly even the house keepers! They work long hours after speaking to one guy so respect for keeping a great attitude. Good hostel for a few days stay and bike hire was reasonable otherwise the tram stops around the corned

Not bad. If you want to stay more cheaper, this hostel is good.

Too many people per room. Cramped. We had 12 people for one toilet and shower. The roof leaked, the beds were lopsided, the window wouldn't shut all the way.

Not so much organized. Poor breakfast and not healthy (everyone taking the bread with hands, and only few jars of marmelade or butter for many people). Not possible to pay with card, we had serious problems because we couldn't take money from an atm and hadn't cash anymore.

In my oppinion, it'll be better to add an additional tram that get quite close to the hostel, number 16. Then, to mention the closest supermarket to the hostel, like Albert Hejin.

It's more than half an hour walk from the Amstel and an hour walk from other attractions. Very small property and conjusted atmosphere.

The hostel was very expensive. It's in Amsterdam and it was during a busy weekend so part of that is understandable but I've stayed in a lot of hostels and this one was distinctly below average. When I arrived, the member of staff attended to me reluctantly but didn't appear to be doing anything else. I was helped by another member of staff the next day - he was very polite and helpful. Overall though, the place had a bad atmosphere and needs a refurbishment.

A regular hostel, the staff is helpful, but there was a gay from Dominican Republic that was really good guy, very helpful and good talker.

It's was great for meeting people and a cheap place to stay, was only there one night but the area was really nice and chilled. Staff were hit and miss, one receptionist was really nice and helpful, the other one was a bit grumpy. Breakfast was minimal and kitchen was equipped only with a microwave and small fridge, not even a toaster.

My familiarity with saphati hostel insures my comfort. I was lame when I arrived this time and was able to suffer through a day and a half with one working leg. I was able to return to my room midday and sleep peacefully. My lack of mobility was helped by the location of bathroom and kitchen. I was able to find all I needed within the sarphati park neighborhood without much walking or riding. Great place.
