Amazing location! Super clean. Liked the key fob storage lockers. Staff was decently friendly. 3 euro breakfast was a real nice spread of goodies. Hostel didn't really foster meeting people because no group activities or happening common areas.

Great location. The atmosphere and meeting people to hang out with at this hostel was a bit difficult. Although the outside may not look so, the facilities are extremely clean.

Stay was very nice. Was a little bit expensive for a hostel but we did go on kings day weekend so that was to be expected. Breakfast was very good value for money

It's simple. Don't book this hotel if you want a pleasant journey and I will never use hostelworld again. That's all I can say.

The staff was less than friendly, I was late for breakfast by 1 minute and the woman wouldn't even let me grab coffee on the flip side it's centrally located. Bleh.

The lady at the front desk could practice to be a little more friendly!

Hostel, 6 people for room generally, clean enough, good security, fair price (for Amsterdam) and great location, indeed in the heart of the city as the name itself says

They do not have regulations of public space. Someone made much noise when I was sleeping. It has a good location with many kinds of food. But because of good location, some weird roommates may take drug or get drunk till midnight. It is easy to go back room so that I didn't have good sleeping. It should be noticed if the shared room is wanted to be reserved.

It's in a good place if you want to visit a red light district. There's was a strange vibe there though and staff weren't particularly helpful. My bed had a fresh stain on it when I arrived and the rooms felt a bit too dark. But it was ensuit which was good and could get wifi in the room.

Only two showers shared in a 12 bed dorm and the toilets were very close to the wall so there was very little leg room. Very surprising since the dutch have the tallest race in Europe. BE WARNED!!! they also take another deposit on top of the hostelworld deposit which they say will be back in your bank within 10 days from your departure (which means the 10th day). This was rather annoying since the money they took put me in my over draft which i was charged per day until the money went back in.

Stayed at the Apocalypse Now room. Lots of commotion coming from other rooms and the stairsm which made it hard to sleep. Rooms and bathrooms were cleaned everyday. Great staff and location.

Location is everything! The room was fine but the bathroom was very dirty. I would stay here again solely because of its location

Can't beat the location. Right in the red light district. 10 minute walk from Anne Frank house and 30 minute walk from Vondelpark and the museums. Staff is nice enough but not all that helpful. Thought the nightly rate was overpriced for what it was but it seems nearly every hostel in Amsterdam is...

It was great. Next time I'll come visit I'll stay there too

The location is great right in the middle of the RLD but i've never been in a hostel with less atmostphere - you're literally just getting a bed, bathroom, etc. So no complaint with the facilities but as far as good hostel vibes go - they're non-existent!

Felt like just a very expensive place to rest my head. No atmosphere and staff very unfriendly

One bathroom for 8 people was a little stressful. Minor issue other than that everything was fine.
