If you want to access the red light district then stay there but it doesn't have a hostel feel where you meet people. Staff answer questions but don't fill you in on things; Breakfast, things to see etc. Expect lots of nous and being overheated but it did me and very handy to train station.

I wouldn't recommend staying here. Atmosphere is depressing and even basic facilities like a computer aren't available. Reception was too busy smoking to check people in. The hostel itself was rundown, smelly and unclean. There was no laundry or common room. Very few female guests as the location is in the middle of the red light district. Rooms were unbearably hot and couldn't sleep (obviously no aircon). No organised hostel activities such as pub crawls etc. very disappointed.

Right in the middle of the red light district. Very interesting set up. The hallways are maze like. No elevator. For the most part, the rooms are clean. The walls were dirty which grossed me out. 1 towel is provided per day. They do come in and make up your bed, take out trash, and replace your towel for you which is nice. Walking distance to the train station and to many other attractions. Staff was extremely nice and helpful!

Stayed here as a lot of hostels in Amsterdam don't let you book only one night on the weekend. It was a nice place right in the heart of the red light district so easy to get to just about anywhere in the city. Was a bit noisy at night obviously but not really too much of a problem. Towels and sheets all included was great, shower/toilet in the room was fine but a bit of a hassle in the morning with everyone trying to use it. Decent brekky for 3 euro as well, good internet - I had a nice time!

Especially mixed rooms are too small and stuffy. The bathroom of the room that I stayed (8 people room) was almost dark and messy.

Dead center of the redlight district, nice staff, secure rooms with clean shower/bathroom in the room. Expensive but it seems like you can't save much money without really cutting the quality for hostels in Amsterdam. Recommend.

Not really written anywhere, but this isn't just in the "heart of Amsterdam", it's in the heart of the red light district. It's actually a good location though, close to everything. Just would've been better to know that. Bathroom attached to room made it really steamy and hot, with no ac, just a crappy fan. No free lockers in the room just tiny safes that barely worked (had to break in to mine with a room key every time), and paid larger lockers. Staff were not that friendly.

Decent hostel but is let down by a lack of atmosphere, some group activities like a bar crawl etc would be awesome.
