I really enjoyed my stay. For a female solo traveller i thought it was wally safe and secure, once you know the area it's so easy to to get back too. And most of all the staff are amazing. Aby help you need and their there.
Do you want bad wifi? cheap food? small shower? No complaints sorted out? Mixed up bookings? No booking under your name? A tannoy shouting happy hour while you're napping? You've got it. It's alright to get your head down for the night. Food is alright though.
Been to this hostel three times now and it's always been pretty great. Absolutely perfect location, is a good price, and has a bar and a club. However, I wouldn't say this place feels much like a hostel, definitely a different sort of atmosphere.
Everything was wonderful but the shower in our room (17E)- it was just a trickle of water essentially- made me feel less clean than when I stepped in! Other than that, the hostel was great- location was ideal, fun bar and good deals on drinks and food.
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
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.
+ : reasonable price. nice breakfast - : noisy. small locker
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!
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.
Don't be late for breakfast!

very good breakfast, amazing. terrible wify. Very noisy
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!
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)
Good hostel - nothing great, nothing bad

You get what you pay for! Mattresses were comfortable. Highly recommend for a budget stay.
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;
