Awesome breakfast!


Great location. Staff were super helpful despite reviews I had read. They have a free charging dock for your phone which is great if you forget your charger. They have luggage storage which I was worried about because some places don't hold your bags. But yeah if you want to stay in amsterdam this is worth a look just for the location. Thanks. :)

It wasn't bad nice hostel for young people, party atmosphere, nice bed, Awesome breakfast, hot waters for shower, bad wifi though


stavo per mettergli tutti 1, poi però sono stato a Berlino e la tristezza di questo posto ha reso nostalgici e magnifici i ricordi dell'Hans Brinker di Amsterdam. unica pecca la doccia non regolabile in nessun senso.tuttavia l'ambiente è stupendo tranne che per la donna delle pulizie che la mattina entra urlando "Morning" per poi uscire subito due secondi dopo senza dire nulla per il puro gusto di vedere se c'era qualcuno nella stanza probabilmente ed odorarne gli odori


Los lockers en la habitación un poco pequeños.


The bunk beds are really comfortable. Great breakfast. Bag storage.


Was not to clean but really cheap. To many big groups stayed there it brought the atmosphere down a lot. (But that might be bad timing) it's a good place to stay if you are looking for a cheap place.

It was clean which is my main concern, the lockers were too skinny to fit most people's backpacks but the room for six people was quite roomy so not too bad. The shared showers were fine but some hooks or a bench to keep your stuff dry would be nice, there was a tiny chair but not big enough. The kitchen does not have a stove or hotplate so people were cooking pasta in the microwave. It is a fair distance, you need the tram to get into town, but it was a good place to stay and i would be back!


Breakfast was good, location was pretty good, staff were always quite nice. The disco downstairs was so loud it kept me awake, if you're not a partier, maybe ask to stay on a top floor, not ground. Good elevators. The top bunks didn't have a ladder so you literally had to pull yourself up, they didn't have a head board either so your pillow falls down and no side barrier. Wifi is a little crappy. The bathrooms weren't great either. They give you keys to lock your locker so security is great.


There is a nice restaurant and bar in the hostel, and a club aswell. Great atmosphere, helpful staff available 24/7. 5 minutes walking from leidseplein. Very recommended.


Overall a good hostel. Good location, You can walk to the center (red light district), it's a 15 minute walk. The first two nights my boyfriend and i stayed at a 6 people room. everything was clean. The bathroom smelled though. The next two nights we stayed at a room for 2 and it was very good. The bathroom was really clean. The hostel was crowded, a lot of people. You can smoke weed but only until 10pm. Excelent value for money


Hasta el orto

For a hostel that tries very hard to appear budget (or the worst) it is actually very good. Rooms are basic but clean and have individual lockers you don't need to pay for. The bar downstairs is decent. The free breakfast is better than most hostels offer, with fresh fried tomatoes, boiled eggs and probably meat too but I am vego and wasn't paying attention. Free luggage room. Staff were nice. Would recommend for budget travellers 100%.




Nice place. Much bigger than we expected, so have a crowded bar at night..which is good. They have an underground club, not sure how it is though. Good breakfast. Highly Recommended.


Best choice for that money for Amsterdam!


The locker I was appointed was a bit broken so the lock could be forced open. Perhaps check that all locker locks are actually operational? I had good luck with dorm mates though so felt my stuff was safe.


Terrible Hostel. Would Recommend


Me pareció sucio poco personal para atender...insegura la taquilla. Buena ubicación precio desayuno.


What you see is what you get! Great location and helpful staff.
