Great place to come and decompress from the hustle and bustle of a city. A bit of a hike from Amsterdam, but still commutable. The staff was great, extremely welcoming and just a blast to be around while hanging out at the bar. There's a shopping area about a 5 minute walk as well as some restaurants and a super market if you're on a tight budget food wise.

If you are not a smoker I would not recommend this hostel. The whole place smells like smoke and it's always very loud. I loved the location and the beach but I did not want to stay here any longer.

Great hostel to stay in amsterdam, also if you are there in the warmer months of the sear to at least go and be at the beach. The atmosphere was great! Great music, really lively staff, and the people in the hostel also. If you are looking for a sweet and long night of sleep, this may not be your place. Maybe the kitchen and the shower should be taken care of a little bit better but that was nothing that would send a guest away.

This hostel is definitely not for everyone. It is a true Party Hostel and loud basically all night long. They offer free earplugs because it is so loud. If you are into divey party places this is for you and I you are not skip it.

Awesome atmosphere at the bar, lots of fun locals and travellers to meet! Can also rent a surfboard on the beach and spend all day surfing :) Be wary that it's not within the amsterdam city centre, some people there thought they were going to be based in the city centre.

Ive stayed in many hostels and im very honest when it comes to reviews but this hostel is absolute rubbish! A few days before arrival i changed my booking to one person for two nights, instead of two people, to which they said was fine and everything was apparently sorted. On arrival, it turns out the half-brained staff booked two people in for one night, to which they then forced me to pay for two people and then told me they didnt even have any beds for the second night. Avoid this place.

Although the location isn't ideal proximity to Amsterdam, this hostel is great value for what you pay for. The atmosphere is great. If you like: getting to meet new people, party until the wee hours of the morning, or get stoned, then you'll enjoy this place. Free breakfast in the morning, wifi throughout and friendly staff. I would absolutely return!

The staff and the facilities are really great - we were really impressed with how well run the hostel was. The only downside is that you're a bit of a trip away from Amsterdam, but they do make available shuttles for a very affordable price.

Very very chilled out hostel. Kinda a hippie den on the coast. Nice towns on the coast near by. If you want to get a shuttle in or out of Amsterdam book it ahead of time. It was a fun place to relax and enjoy the country.

Chilled out atmosphere. Nice beach, too far from Amsterdam city.

Decent place to stay, nothing spectacular. Showers in the 4 people room was kind of cramped in and sprayed onto the toilet. There is definitely more of a beach bum atmosphere which is fine if that's what you're in to. Other guests were respectful.

The environment here is a really fun party atmosphere. The staff is relaxed, and there is a room where you can smoke what you buy in Amsterdam which is always pretty fun. I would definitely stay here again.
