lovely room but unfortunately no communal areas to meet other travellers or hang out so you only had your room to chill out in. staff were lovely.

As a lot of people said, good place to spend the night.

Overall good, even though not easily accessible (hidden main entrance, extremely steep stairs) Pros: quiet and one-minute-away from Dam square Cons: don't even expect fancy atmosphere, just plain room (with properly clean bathroom, which is a plus)

Sympathetic crew, small hostel, the chipiest with not so bad reviews. Worth in a city where the hostels are so expensive.

A place hard to find, 5 locker for 10 beds, nobody coming to the gate when you ring the bell, and lots of other things...

Tiny cramped and claustrophobic, windows are locked shut so there's no fresh air, and no common area to meet people. They charge for towels, coffee, tea, and lockers. The top bunk has no railing to prevent you from falling off. The bathroom was not cleaned, nor was the garbage emptied in the 10 bed dorm over the course of nearly 24 hrs. Other than that great location, friendly staff, and the shower gets hot.

If you just need a bed for a few nights in the main touristic region (Dam), the hostel is fine. But there is no common area, which sucks.

The hotel is around 15 mins walk from central train station. Unfortunately it is hard to find the entrance as it is 'hidden' in a small lane. The room rate is high for a bed in a dorm room but the facility is not that good.

Absolutely fine if you just need a place to sleep, but there isn't anything else for you here.

The location is great.. Prices were high only because it was close to New Years but if you need a place to sleep and shower that's located where everything is this is a great hostel!

Good hostel for a short stay, for example a week-end juorney. Clean rooms and bath and friendly staff. But a bit norrow and only essencial kitchen facilities there. But anyway - value for money is excellent!

Good location, staffs are really friendly. However the bed is too small.

When I first arrived, the person in charge at that time wasn't attentive or helpful, the stairs are so small and couldn't walk properly because of my bag and was afraid of falling down.

This place will provide a bed to sleep in, that's all I can say about it. The staff is not particularly warm or welcoming, there is no such thing as atmosphere here, and it would have had to be less expensive to make me feel like I got any sort of value. However the location is great and the bathroom is nice.

Central Station hostel was a great value for money. The location is excellent. Apart from some crazy, very steep stairs to the reception and the rooms, everything was fine. Clean bathrooms, strong wifi signal, courteous staff. But there is no common area to sit and socialize.

Not only are the stairs too steep to climb (even without luggage), there are no common areas, bathrooms are dirty, beds are small and the whole place is not very clean. The staff was either high out of their minds or just didint care. Do not stay here.

Steep staircase very narrow too is hard even without luggage. No lift. No towel , has to rent. Super location for tourist.

Very clean and spacious room, bathroom also very clean. Stairs are extremely steep as has been noticed by others. In a very good location within walking distance of popular tourist areas, nice food outlets and some good bars. Only slight problem we had (we were a group of seven) was that we got home both nights to find people in our beds, perhaps bed allocation would be beneficial.
