Lovely hostel, bit of a walk from the center of Amsterdam but that really doesn't matter when you're staying right next to Vondel Park. Staff were fantastic, really helpful and welcoming. Breakfast consists of cereal, bread/toast, fresh fruit, tea/coffee and fresh juice - no cheese and ham though :-(. Bar prices - very reasonable. Some showers lacked decent storage for clothes/towels etc and were a bit temperamental but adequat. Overall a great hostel and I would definitely stay here again :-)

Great place, very friendly and helpful staff. Only downside for me was not having internet access in the bedrooms, only at reception.

Over-priced! Location is ok, but a good 20+ min walk from the hustle & bustle in Red Light Dist. The room had carpeting and smelled of gym bags. Our beds were clean but they did not clean the adjacent beds, which had 3 different sets of guests, during our stay. There is only 1 light in the room so you can't help but disturb sleeping roommates if you need it. 2/3 toilets unable to use on our floor at the time, nothing to dry your hands. Only 1 outlet for 8 guests to share. No WiFi in room.

We enjoyed our stay here. It's located right next to a beautiful park which was great. It's about a 15 minute walk out from the centre but it was a nice walk and a good way to see the city. The kitchen was well equipped and the breakfast was good. We stayed in a double bed in a dorm room which was good, but the beds are quite small! The atmosphere was pretty good in the bar and the staff were nice. I would stay here again

Execellent hostel. Very much appreciated the smoking lounge and bar area. Was alone so took the opportunity to talk to some of the people there. Nice chilled out atmosphere. Comfortable. Great location by the park and very near the heart of the city. Would recomend to anyone. Go there for a fun time!

This is definitely a party hostel. smoking room and bar and, as such, no real common area to chillout in after a tiring day. TINY toilets and bizarrely no sinks to brush your teeth or shave. Instead you have to use the miniature ones in the toilets. Location is about as far from the main area as you'd want to get. The other flying pig is probably worth booking instead, simply based on its better location.

Tight staircases and small rooms. Nice that you can adjust the air conditioning. Bathrooms were tiny and not enough on each floor. 2 bathrooms for who knows how many people (a lot!) is not enough!

Good hostel, clean spacious room but be prepared for the 4 flights of super steep stairs to get up there. The free Breakfast included is good too.

The staff were great! They were friendly and helpful. The hostel was very clean and we enjoyed our stay there. However, the common areas (kitchen, bar, lounge area) are very small, especially during breakfast. It was also a real pain in the butt that when you come in the front door you have to walk down stairs and then back up again to your room. Felt like going mountain climbing just to get to your room!

Lovely hostel with great staff. Liked the free wifi and ability to rent a laptop. The stairs are a pain in the arse, but expected it is Amsterdam after all! I think i would definitely stay here again.

Loved the breakfast, a lot of selection. I would recommend a 'Free Food' section in the kitchen for left behind food so that it doesn't go bad and get thrown out. Great book exchange, lots of options.

Staff were really helpful and great. The bar area was good although a bit small. Rooms and toilet and shower were cleaned daily. Needed a key card to enter the building which is a good idea. Overall good place to stay at.

Great staff, clean room, great wifi. Rooms were a little damp and dark (downstairs room) and would have been nice if we could open a window for fresh air, but this only a minor thing and would definitely stay again.

Really good hostel, they clean everyday, just the shower of my room was kinda unstable, sometime it would heat, sometime not. but there were private showers in the corridors so it wasn´t as much of a problem.
