Hi, Sorry to read you've stayed in a really hot room. During extremely high temperatures it can be a bit hot in some rooms. Please keep us in mind for a winter visit to Amsterdam! Hans Brinker

This was our first hostel - we didn't think it was too bad until we carried on with our trip. Staff weren't particularly nice and helpful & a lot of school/colleges seem to stay in the hostel. Decent enough but still a bit pricey for what you get. Free breakfast too!

Auberge accueillante et assez spacieuse. Les chambres sont correctes au niveau des aménagements (casier à disposition, douche avec eau chaude, lits confortables) mais la propreté laisse un peu à désirer, sans pour autant que cela soit choquant. Les "plus" de l'auberge sont les draps et serviettes à disposition, le bar et la boite de nuit dans l'auberge qui contribuent à une bonne ambiance et finalement le local à bagages. Le petit déjeuner est quant à lui très satisfaisant.

Great location and cool bar although it is the only place in the entire building with wifi access. Great because it brings people out of their rooms but if youre trying to keep in contact or do anything online past 6 youre out of luck unless you want to be surrounded by loud drunks. Staff wasnt extraordinary nor were they bad, they definitely don´t go out of their way to help you. Having to stand by the door and wait for them to open it no matter the time is also a nuissance.

Hi! Indeed we are a youth / party hostel so we can't guarantee quiet nights….We are the best location though for a crazy time in Amsterdam! Hans Brinker

The location and the atmosphere are great but the mixed dorms are not good value for money (too expensive for a tiny upper bunk bed in a sticky room). Too many people in the tiny reception area, impossible to get to the locker. Three members of staff failed to help me figure out how the safe locker works, a bit unprofessional.

Amsterdam est un peu une destination particulière.......Population très jeune dans cette Auberge......des jeunes qui vont à Amsterdam pour faire la fête (boire et fumer) Des chambres très sale.......j'ai du enlever les draps sales du lit qui m'était destiné......des mouchoirs et des papiers partout.... Pas d'échelle pour monter dans le lit en haut Le personnel à l'acceuil : selon la journée petit déjeuner : très bien

Hi, Our rooms get cleaned every day, but when you share a room with other guests, they can get the place messy after cleaning! We hope you did enjoy your stay after all! Greetings, Hans Brinker

Todo muy bien, lo unico malo fueron los piquetes de PULGAS!!! las camas tenian pulgas, no se si el colchon o la ropa de cama pero si fue muy feo andar todo picoteado. Mi segundo viaje a europa, y vaya que he recorrido hostales y jamas me habia pasado eso.

The hotel is very clean and with great atmosphere. If there is wifi installed in rooms, it will be even better.

Hi , Thanks for your review! One thing: we are located on the best spots of Amsterdam: in a quite street, but within a 2 min walk to entertainment area Leidseplein, Museumplein and between the famous canals! Greetings, Hans Brinker

Het is een prima hostel in het centrum van Amsterdam. Goede prijs kwaliteit verhouding. Het ontbijt was prima geregeld. Geen bakken vol met voedsel maar genoeg voor iedereen en het werd dan ook steeds vers aangevuld. De kamers waren schoon en overzichtelijk. Het enige nadeel was dat de kamers weinig tot geen ventilatie hadden. Daardoor was het super benauwd op de kamers. De ramen gingen maar 5 cm open. Op dit laatste minpuntje na. Niets veranderen aan jullie fantastische concept. Bedankt Maaike

Hi, Dank je wel voor je review! Wegens veiligheidsredenen mogen onze ramen helaas niet ver open, wat inderdaad in de zomermaanden voor een warme kamer kan zorgen. We hopen je snel samen met je vrienden / vriendinnen terug te zien in ons hotel! Groetjes, Hans Brinker

Decepcionada. Cheguei esperando o pior hostel do mundo e me deparei com um hostel bom, com um café da manhã bom (leite, café, pão, ovos, geléia, manteiga, torradas, cereal, salada de frutas, iogurte...) e as staffs super queridas! Recomendo demais! Valeu cada centavo dos 25 euros que paguei!

Despite being self named the worlds worst hotel/hostel... It was surprisingly good! It is big and busy. The rooms are standard. We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm with ensuite. Had a shower, toilet, sink and mirror. The linen was clean and beds were comfy. We had issues with loud guests coming home in the early hours and banging on doors etc. Downstairs has a big bar

Hi, You're totally right, we are basic / standard, but we provide everything you need for a stay in Amsterdam (even a bit more: our own underground club!). See you again soon? Hans Brinker

Real nice, central hostel. Room was spacious, clean, with a private big locker with a key and ensuite bathroom,really good!It's a big and crowded hostel, so there are always people around; there's an inside bar that serves free breakfast in the morning (good) and where you can get cheap food and drinks all day. There's quite the party atmosphere but you'll enjoy it even if you're not really in the mood. I think the best hostel I've been in Amsterdam, very good value.

Pros - Lots of choice for breakfast, cheap bar, the food served for lunch and dinner is cheap and tasty, helpful staff, secure building, good wifi in communal areas, very good location! Cons - Bedrooms too hot, beds have no ladders, 'en suite' is always humid and wet and is too small, there are no places in the bathroom to hang your clothes, no wifi in bedrooms, lockers did not lock, no kitchen, noisy, very dirty, I left this hostel with many bites from using the dirty bedding!

Hi, Thanks for your review. First of all we are currently working on wifi in the rooms. And we clean our rooms every day, but when you share a room with other guests, they can get the place messy after cleaning. Hans Brinker

Only having wifi in the bar was really annoying especially at night, other than that honestly the place was fine just not great value for money.
