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

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;

Cracking three night stay! When we moved in we wish we could have gone back. It may advertise itself as the worst hotel in the world, but for the amount it costs and it's location it's probably the best value for money hotel I've been to!

Great location, nice breakfast

El hotel se encuentra bastante céntrico, las habitaciones son cómodas, el precio razonable con respecto a lo que ofrecen. Buen desayuno pero el baño no estaba en las mejores condiciones.

Das im Preis inbegriffene Frühstück war für Hostel Verhältnisse schon ziemlich gut. Kostenlose Handbücher sind auch nicht selbstverständlich. Der Große Aufenthaltsraum war schön gestaltet und stimmig. Allgemein ist das Hostel durchschnittlich eingerichtet sowie die Zimmer. Die Sauberkeit ist ebenso durchschnittlich. Rezeption ist wenn viele auf einmal ab oder anreisen überlastet das heißt lange Wartezeiten. Im Zimmer war es u Unerträglich heiß da Fenster nur ein Spalte geöffnet werden konnte!

This hostel wasn't the best, but it did it's job. The breakfast was pretty good - always take advantage of every "free" meal you can get. The bar staff was also very friendly which was a plus since the groups of people there mainly stayed to themselves. A couple of cons were that my sheets had stains on them & the shower had hardly any water coming out of it.

The hostel breakfast is very good. The staff is a little bit ´cold´ but they always help you when you ask. The rooms are simple and do their propose. Overall we recommend this hostel to anyone who wishes a cheap stay in AMS.

To call this place a budget hotel is a massive overstatement. It is more acane to a hovel where stained mattresses have been thrown on the floor in an attempt to trick you. The gremlin like staff do not care that your room is the tempreture of hell. Due to the fact that they must have signed their soles over to Beelzebub already. If you wish to clean yourself of the filth that enivitably sticks to you upon entering here, it would be better to jump in a canal that use their bathroom facilities.

Je n'ai pas pu aller à cette auberge que j'avais pourtant réservé, car je ne rentrais pas dans les critères d'âge, max 35 ans et j'en ai 55. J'ai donc été obligé de chercher un autre endroit, je n'avais pas vu les critères d'âge sur la fiche, d'ailleurs je ne comprends pas que le site m'ait laissé booker une auberge dans laquelle je ne peux accéder, je trouve que la sélection n'a pas fonctionné. Et comment récupérer mes arrhes, je n'ai pas pu obtenir d'infos de la part de l'auberge ?

We’re sorry about this… we state clearly at our description that you cannot book in dormitories when over 35. With any complaints regarding your deposit, you should contact Hostelworld. Doesn’t mean we don’t feel sorry that you had to look for another place! We hope you could find something and that in the end you had a nice stay in Amsterdam.

Really nice location, simple breakfast but included, rooms didn't feel crowded and had their own bathroom, overall really great stay.

The hostel has a very good location. They have a club in the basement and a nice bar/lounge area. Lockers were big enough, beds were very comfortable. The room was SO HOT it felt like a sauna though, the window barely opened. One of the days the cleaning ladies got in the room to clean up for other guests checking in and left the door completely open while doing so. Everyone could see me lying there. Not very good for solo travelers, lots of groups.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review about us. We’ll ask our cleaning ladies to be a bit more subtle in the future ;) Hope you’ve enjoyed your time in Amsterdam!

I stayed just for one night but I can say the atmosphere s great and the hostel is well organized. The only "issue" was the lock room where I had to leave the luggage: it was a little bit crowded so be sure you do not leave anything precious and you close well your luggage (something can drop). But nothing happened to my luggage so nothing really to complain about.. on the contrary you go home with more faith in human beings :)

Be sure to bring earplugs, since at least the rooms on the first floor are quite loud due to the adjacent bar.

You get more than you pay for. A budget hostel, €22 in peak Summer, with an above-the-average breakfast (fruit, granola, muesli, yogurt, toasts, ham, cheese, spreads, coffee, tea), and free snacks everyday. They have a nice and cheap bar inside and a nice disco in the basement. Bathroom inside the room is not nice - the shower was spitting all around and it was hard to have a decent shower. But again - for a budget hostel, who cares? They also fixed a mistake in my reservation, so great staff.

Many thanks for your positive words, you made our day (although we would like to know who you got the free snacks from - we would like some as well!)
