We enjoyed our stay at Euphemia Hotel. The staff was very understanding and was able to put up with 15 college kids all trying to have a good weekend! I don't remember the names of the people at the front desk but they were very helpful and acccommodating. Do try the food they offer for breakfast, it was a lovely homecooked meal. Also try the bakery around the corner on the main street! Overall, great location being out of the city center and great resources all round.

We had a good stay here. The building is old and does not look fancy. However you get good value for your money. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location is very good and yet you don't get alot of noise. Facilities are average but it's clean.

The Euphemia was a great location for a weekend trip to Amsterdam. While the building was older, it was very clean and comfortable to stay in. The staff was helpful and a young woman essentially gave us her personal guide to the city (it was super helpful) written out on a map based on what we were interested in. Skip the breakfast and walk 10 minutes to La Place for a 3.25 euro breakfast that includes 5 items, coffee or tea and orange juice.

Overall wonderful stay at Euphemia Old City Canal Zone. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Location was ideal, and safe. Facilities were clean. Only complaint is the 5% fee to pay with credit card and that the breakfast is not included. Would highly recommend!

Very friendly and helpful staff. Clean, safe environment and only a short walk from the center of the city.

The bed was comfortable enough, but when I walked into the room it smelled really bad. That was the fault of one of the guests though, because the 2nd half of the room, which was separated by a door, smelled fine. But perhaps an issue with ventilation or airflow? I was in room 25.

The location it's amazing, you're near everything. The people is very kind, specially a spanish girl named Macarena, she is really awsome, she gave us a lot of great recommendations about city attractions, city tours, restaurants and another places to go.

I stayed over New Years, so I'm sure I got a skewed sense of the hostel(every place in the area was looking like 100euro/night!). However, they were kind and accommodating. Certainly not the best hostel I've stayed at, there was very little atmosphere, but I met some people in my dorm so it was OK. All in all, pretty good location, and if it's cheap. Go for it! Ps. Coffeeshops less than 30 seconds from the entrance!

Positives. Rooms are good size and clean with ensuite. Staff were extremely helpful and all really nice Negatives. Got there at 12 but had to wait until 3.30 to use room when was told would be ready Bit fair from Amsterdam centre to walk No guest kitchen or free breakfast, but you can buy breakfast

One of the best hostels I've stayed at. The staff was fantastic and a lot of fun. Taylor's pub crawl and Sagnria drinking games were particularly awesome and he had a great personality that kept everyone together and encouraged lots of people to go. Harriet also did a fantastic tour of the city which she deserves special recognition for. Lastly, Pablo's Tapa night was unforgettable and tons of fun. He was funny and gave a lot of great information about the history and cuisine of Tapas.

Nice place but expensive as everywhere in Amsterdam, you have to walk around 15 min to get to the center of the city. Not too bad

It´s a nice place, near center and close to tram, so its easy to get there and move around. Wifi not good. Too expensive for the service.

The 4 person room was a bit dark and cramped. Plus the guest the first night I stayed was quite drunk and smelly for his whole trip.
