It was in the city centre, but in a obsucre way, without windows. The room was tiny and hot, the personnel was unfriendly and 90 € for two nights is a theft.

dear guest thank you for staying with us. Our prices are good compared with other hostels in this location. You stayed in the heart of amsterdam no need for transport.Besides that you saw the price before booking. As you can see in the hostel pictures all our room have windows.

dear guest, thank you for staying with is. If you chek the website on hostelworld you can read that the price is exclusive of 5.5 % city tax. You have to paid that at arrival.

Not a great hostel, but OK. very small and cramped with an unbelievably steep flight of stairs to reach the reception/ rooms, just wide enough for two abreast- exluding luggage. After a night out this stair case was treacherous. Great location, close to many atractions and bars/ coffeeshops etc. although it is in a grimy back alley protected by a solid metal security gate and and so many camera's, so a bit dodgy gang hide-out like. Terrible for meeting people- no communal area whatsoever

This is a really small hostel. The rooms are nicely sized but entering the hostel includes basically climbing up a ladder. Decent location in a really touristy area, I'd recommend staying in a different part of the city. Clean bathrooms but the lack of common area to hang out with other guests is a let down.

Very central. Lovely place, clean bathroom and bedroom. Staff were very friendly. Only issue - the top bunk had no side rail or ladder, which was just a bit annoying when trying to get to bed quietly.

Heel vriendelijke staff! Centraal gelegen, geen overlast, toffe kamers en propere kamer en badkamer.. Leuke mensen leren kennen. Een aanrader! Minpuntje: erg steile trappen, maar het personeel helpt je graag je koffer naar boven te brengen!

LOVE LOVE LOVE CENTRAL STATION. Location was amazing, rooms clean and nicely furnished and the people were incredible. Could not recommend it highly enough. Would be nice to have more coherent directions from the station as we walked for two hours and it's only five mins away. Special shout out to Rashid for being dreamy xxxxx

Steep Stairs. Not easy to interact with other people as no lounge. Clean and location excellent though!

There is no place to meet people, a commom area. The location is great, very center!

The man who runs this hostel was incredibly unfriendly and not at all helpful. There is no atmosphere as the place consists only of a large, narrow set of steps which are almost suitable for climbing up and abseiling down, as well as your room. To be fair though our room was quite spacious and the bathroom was modern and the place clean. Beds were small though and so was the bathroom. Wouldn't stay again at the price it was!
