I had read bad reviews of this hostel, however I was pleasantly surprised - it was nowhere near as bad as the reviews had made out. It was not great value for money, as no common room or cooking facilities. The room was not very clean, although the linen was fresh when I arrived. The location is excellent - only a few mins from the train station. There is a safe in the room but the main entrance was broken the whole time so anyone could have walked in! Great roommates made stay worthwhile.


Well where should i start? –It wasn't at all the way it was displayed on they're homepage. –there was NO security at all, i walked in at night and no was there to check –the rooms where quite dirty and stuffy air, which doesn't bother me that much, but at least one's got the chance to get a infection in the shower or on the toilet. So thanks a lot for beeing so honest on your homepage :)

The place is very close of the Centraal Station (5min) so for that it is very conveniente, staff nice, room clean, the only thing is that lockers are very small (my laptop can't go inside), you don't have ,commun space between differents rooms and the stair are very hard, if you come for few days is ok but if it is like me you come to do your internship with big luggages it is not conveniente.


No elevator and impossible stairs!


All staff very good and helpful. Only problem was when I arrived and front , glass door was shattered and held by tape. I could not get an answer to the door bell to check in. Spent 20 minutes waiting outside, until a restaurant worker next door told me to go to Tulip restaurant next door to check in for Dam Hotel. Notice should have been on Dam door and the glass was still broken when I left 3 days later.

The hotel is basic but in an excellent location, just 2 minute walk from the red light district where there is many bars and coffee shops but no clubs but they are just a 10 minute walk away! Overall it was a good place to stay!


Great location. Could probably be loud depending on the room as it is over one of the major streets by the Central station. Small room that was clean and had everything you need
