I guess the hostel needs more staffs, you have a big demand, and sometimes you cannot answer our question, an getting a long queue just to solve one problem, and the staffs trying to do what it is possible, try to look at this point, excellent location everything is near, but this thing can be developed. Thanks

Thank you for your positive note and suggestion for improvement! We’re currently looking on how we can change things at reception so we can help you quicker. Glad you liked the rest of your stay and hope to see you again sometime!

Great location. The room and bathroom were clean, beds were comfortable, breakfast was delicious (coffee was particularly good) and we felt safe. Earplugs are a must though.

Cheap hostel, good location and plenty of locker space.

Within walking distance of most landmarks in the city. Better than average breakfast. My only real problem was with the locker in the room, with a good yank I could open the door whether locked or not.

always a cheap place to stay. a bit rough around the edges, but close to leidseplein and the star of the show is the breakfast, including pancakes. It's all a bit manic, but I'm older than you!

Nachdem das Bad sehr klein ist und auch keine Absaugung hat steht der Schimmel dick an der Decke, was ziemlich unappetitlich ist!! Ansonsten eher ein abgenutzter Eindruck! Die Milch beim Frühstück gleicht mehr einem Joghurt! Die Atmosphäre in der Bar ist O.K. und das Personal ist auch recht freundlich, sind sogar Pluspunkte, für den Preis, gerade noch O.K.!!

Waren nur eine Nacht zum schlafen da. Kann also nicht wirklich viel sagen. Aber für eine Nacht oder ein Wochenende in Amsterdam war es auf jeden Fall OK. Würde ich wieder machen.

Quite happy with this hostel. The facilities are a bit older but still gets the job done! Staff were nice but the reception area was cramped and they needed more people to be working at the desk.

Best advice ever.

La relación calidad-precio es muy buena. Las habitaciones son tal cual te las venden: Una cama y un baño cutre. Lo mejor del hotel es el desayuno (concretamente los crepes), que viene incluido en el precio y está muy bueno. Está bien ubicado y justo en frente hay una tienda de alquiler de bicis (el mejor medio de transporte para moverse por la ciudad) Lo recomiendo.

Obrigado for your comments!

Pleasantly surprised! Hostel is in a fantastic location. Our room was basic but clean and had its own bathroom. However, the shower does not drain quickly so the whole bathroom gets very wet. Towels provided for free and changed every day by cleaners. Wifi decent on lower floors. Staff friendly and helpful. Definitely rent a safe downstairs - the lockers do not look secure as many of them use the same key. Overall, very good and would come back. Thanks Hans Brinker!

You pleasantly surprised us with your reveiw – many thanks for that! We completely agree with all your comments – showers can definitely do better (we hope to be solving that in near feature), and to rent a safe for your valuables is always best. Hope you’ll spread the positive words and to see you again soon!

Not a hostel but still pretty expensive. As is everywhere in dam. Breakfast was pretty good but notin special. Location felt nice but the hostels in the red light district are way more fun. You get some serious lads on tour bellends in the bar around happy hour (which is 5-6...a stupid time for happy hour)

Thanks for your comments! Even though we bare the name of ‘budget hotel’, what we actually are is a hostel. We’re also pretty fun. But if you know a better place, we won’t hold you back to go there – we want you to have the best possible experience in Amsterdam!

brilliant location. right in the centre of the city. bicycle rent shop across the street. not the cleanest hostel but it has a great atmosphere and it's easy to meet other travellers! check out happy hour for some cheap drinks before going out also the food in the bar is delicious and cheaper than places in Amsterdam

I took 30min in a queue to do the check-in; The staff could have been more kind and help me better in order to have internet. Note I and my roommates couldn't have internet. Nowadays, it is a big fault;

Sorry to hear you think we didn’t treat you well! We always try the best we can… We do have internet though, wifi in the entire building, although it has its flaws sometime. We hope you did enjoy your stay in Amsterdam, even though we should have been nicer to you!
