Overall a great place for a good price. The staff are friendly & helpful & also attractive! Definitely take advantage of their suggestions. The hostel itself was pretty decent - we just had confusion over beds & two of the beds that were assigned to us had not been changed & one of the security personnel had to come in & change the sheets himself around midnight or 1AM. We - a group of four girls - stayed in the 16-bed mixed room & slept great once the sheets were finally changed :)


The bathroom had human feces on the ground and the shower smelt really bad. Loved the location though.


One of the worst places I've stayed at. The worker was so rude! He came into our room at 2:30 in the morning without knocking and just walked into our room for no reason. Not to mention this was an all female room and he was a male worker. This is not okay! Secondly there's no outlets only about four for the entire room. The facility was really old and run down bathrooms were gross and dirty. Far too overpriced for the quality.


Completely disgusting. Felt like a prison.

Bobs was convenient and a place to stay whilst in Amsterdam but no atmosphere , staff didn't really seem to excited about anything


It's a chill place. Not the cleanest, but it does the job.


Nothing fancy but pretty clean hostel. I would recommend to budget travellers/


It's a terrible hostel. Very desorganaised and durty!! The staffs dont care about problemans. There isnt kitchen at the hostel and the bedroom is very loundy.


Not the cleanest - my sheets were stained. Shower wasn't great, toilets neither. Overall ok, and the location made it a good base for our trip, but I would not return.


The receptionist was rude, the sink was broken in our room and the bathroom was dirty.

The hostel was in a very good location, only a few minutes walk from Dam square. Room was fairly clean considering there were 14 people in it. Main problems were TWO sockets between 14 people and only one toilet/shower.


The bathroom was disgusting and the whole dorm smelled like pee. The staff wasn't very friendly. Nothing about that place was clean. Waste of 100 euros.

This was an OK hostel, very much a backpackers kind of place, not for those looking for an 'up market' experience. The place was clean enoughenough and in a good location. Be warned, there are 2 parts to this hostel, so you may end up in the 2nd building behind the main hostel. The staff were a little surlysurly, but helpful enough for me. The atmosphere is ok if you like/don't mind weed smoking, as the main lobby area was devoted to this. Overall a no frills hostel in a good location.

I really couldn't stand the music that was playing in the common room during my three nights there and also heard others make the same complaints. It was mainly college aged students so I feel like more mainstream or recent music should have been played. Additionally the bathroom cleanliness could have been better, however in large shared rooms I realize it can be a difficult thing to maintain.


Overall good quality. Would have been nice to have a better quality mattress though
