Everything about the hostel was great - located in uptown - it helped me escape the crowds of amsterdam. Very friendly staff with lots of info on the happenings in the city around. Great bar/cafe/smoking room. Clean (mostly). The atmosphere was great for hanging out and the breakfast was the best on my stays across Europe. Only gripe is with the number of stairs I had to climb to get to my room !
This is the hostel for weed smokers. Almost everyone is constantly high, even the staff members. Perfect for weed addicted. But I think that's too much.. Moreover, rooms and bathrooms are not that perfect, and the money asked was exagerated.
Lively backpacker hostel with a great atmosphere. It is located right across from Vondelpark so it is away from the canal area, but it is still close enough to walk or get public transport to those areas. Plus it was nice being away from the tourists! The rooms were clean with good storage for backpacks. Ensuite bathroom was small but clean. The bar was really good and offered pizza as well as drinks. The staff were helpful. Overall I would definitely recommend this hostel.
Only stayed for 36 hours, but a very chill hostel. Smoking area by bar. Offer standard breakfast(cereal, toast, juice/coffee), as well as daily supper specials that you can pay and get. Cash only bar. Need to be buzzed inside, so felt safe. Under bed lockers, good showers, clean bathrooms. Close to central area(not far to be anywhere in Amsterdam, especially if you rent a bike). Staff had good tips on where to go, what shops to see, etc. Most expensive hostel on my trip, but it was worth it.
Get place to stay and very friendly people.
Fantastic as usual. My favorite place to stay in the city.
Good staff. Walkable location. Great place to eat, drink, smoke. Clean and decent rooms.
This hostel was one of the best! Staff were super welcoming and helpful! The bar downstairs offered great happy hour specials! Rooms were spacious and the beds were comfy! This place was also close to main city centre area which had tons of bars and shops.
Really great hostel - a bit of a walk away from the red light district and all that but the neighbourhood the hostel is in is so lovely you don't even want to leave. The room was smallish but it had air con!! The staff were super nice and the bar was great. It was on the pricey side though - but Amsterdam is expensive anyway.
The hostel was alright but the vibe was strange, it's very pokey, dark and gloomy. No kitchen was really annoying and the staff (one guy) seemed grumpy. Would have been really nice to have yoghurt and some fruit at brekky! Location is quite far out! I'm definitely staying more in the centre next time
