It worths the money, the only problem was this bunch of junkies, sharing' the rooms wirh us. They were simply disrespectful!! The staff was pleasant and the location perfect for sightseeing.

Pretty nice stay. A random drunk girl stumbled into our room one night at around 7 am, and was meant to be staying in another room. Also, the clerk charged me an extra 15% because I was paying with a credit card, which I felt was a little absurd. Great location, between the park and Red Light District.

Very much enjoyed this hostel. A great place just to sleep in a very good location, close to centraal station. No problems with security or cleanliness, and helpful staff as well.

We had a great stay there! Lots of space in the room, a nice bathroom and great room mates. What we loved most was the location, it's located perfectly in the centre.

This hostel has got a very very good location. Only 1 minte from the Dam. Staff were polite and gave us good the information we needed. There was no common room in this hostel, so the atmosphere wasn't that good. The room was clean and the shower was very good! The only negative thing was that the topbeds of the bunkbeds had no rail. I felt lucky that i didn't fell out of my bed :)

The hostel is very small and there are not basic facilities such as a kitchen, a laundry room and a common room. The stairs - oh the stairs - I'd read comments on them and assumed I could go around that. But they are really inconvenient in many aspects. I would not recommend this hostel.

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.

Very good directions to find the hostel and great location. There is no common room or kitchen so it makes it hard to meet people, other than those in your dorm. Ensuite and linen was clean. If you need to check out before 10am I would recommend you check out the night before - staff were still sleeping under the reception counter when I wanted to check out.

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.


51%

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.


69%

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!
