You should have told us if the room were to be cleaned. It is a little bit of privacy invasion

I loved it, the only issue was (not sure whether it was only our bedroom or all of them) that the main light didn't really light up the room much - it wasn't really a massive hinderence, more of a small annoyance. Other than that it was amazing.

Very good location. In the center of red light district. It was 30 euros per night for each person. You get what you paid! Very good heating and water. Really nothing much to say, since there are not many facilities. Excellent wifi. Beds are decent but they could be better.

Staff was pretty nice and helpful. Also the location was in the center. Every bed has its shelf, lamp and socket but bathroom has no socket in it(ensuite). They cleaned the room every day and changed the towels and linens. I'd definitely recommend it. Have fun and ignore the street dealers :)

The beds aren't comfortable, there was a lack of symphatie from the staff members. And it's a very noisy building.

This hostel as great location in the middle of the redlight district if you want to experience it. Except if you are a non smoker I would highly discourage you to go there because the main attraction seems to be smoking weed in the streets or in the backyard of the hostel.

Pretty well located, but not so much things to do inside the facilities. Bathroom cleanliness is not very good.

What a great place to stay on a budget. Right in the heart of the red light district. If felt really safe and the staff were lovely.i have stayed in many hostels in the dam over the years and this was definitely one of the better ones. Will stay there again definitely. The lockers were good and I liked the shelf and light next to each bed.

Stay was fine, no issues. Minimal going on at the hostel. Location ideal if you want to experience the red light district. We got a lock box to store valuables.

Great location cafes all around you, even though the guy at reception tried to accuse me of smuggling in a friend, but we both checked in at the same time.... And giving us top bunk beds that are impossible to climb. We took bottoms bunks as we originally asked for and had the cheek to try wake me from my sleep to tell me this pointless info, but other than that it was a awesome place.

The best part about Heart of Amsterdam is it's location. It's right in the red light district and very close to Dam Square, which is perfect. The rooms are pretty dark and there's no real common area but we were only in Amsterdam for 3 days and didn't spend much time in the hostel anyway so it was no big deal. The lockers were slightly small (for our bags at least) but very secure. So if you're like us and plan on being out in Amsterdam and exploring most of the time, than this place is perfect.
