The room was comfortable, everything was clean and it is near the city center (just a bit far [walking] from the pub's and disco squares) . Overall we had a pleasant stay.

The disappointed living experience.

Personeel vriendelijk en behulpzaam. wat betreft hygiene kan het wel beter . Hier en daar lampen stuk en/of verf van de muren. maar voor de plek lekker rustig. Kat(ten) in het hostel laten hun sporen achter !!! Hostel algemeen kan wel een opknapbeurt gebruiken. Gezamelijke huiskamer zou leuke aanvulling zijn.

Good location, withing ten minutes walking distance of the central city. It's nice that's it's not directly in the city because it's quiet at night. There's also two of the best coffee shops on the way to the city from the hostel. Staff was very nice. No community area or kitchen was really the only down fall

This is a bed only, no chair anywhere or somewhere to sit and chill. Rooms are very small and no privacy at all. If you get a top bunk then you are subject to the light coming on every time someone comes or goes ! Nice helpful staff but this is a bed ONLY !

The location is good, in front of a train station. Unfortunately, the beds are very narrow, the bathroom is very small and the floor gets all wet after the shower. Besides that, there are few electrical outlets and just near the floor. So if you are in the upper bed, you need to let your cellphone charging on the floor. Some changes in the structure of the bedrooms could make the experience much better.

Creíamos que por el precio que pagamos y por la cercanía con el centro, el hostal, sería bastante deficiente pero para nuestra sorpresa estaba limpio y era bastante decente.

The entrance to the hostel is shocking, a very steep staircase you have to climb on all fours with your luggage. There is know common area to sit and chill, the toilet and shower and a bit too close in the same small room. Would not recommend.

I really enjoyed my stay at Hostel Centraal. The staff was nice and helpful, and I chose to stay longer than intended in Amsterdam. They accommodated for me to stay extra nights. Overall, satisfied!

We stayed off season and in the middle of the week so it was kinda empty. The room was good and clean but lacking in electric sockets. There was now atmosphere because I think we were the only people in the place.

Good place to stay and not that far from the center.

This place is perfect for walking distance to the heart of Amsterdam. The staff was friendly and helpful as far as getting around town. There are a couple things to keep in mind if you do stay here. The hostel doesn't have a lift, and if you don't bring your own town you'll have to pay €2. If you stay hight than the second floor you cannot connect to the wifi. Other than that it was nice. There is also an Italian restaurant next door which is pretty good.

Hotel pas évident à trouver. Il est trop cher pour le service qu'il propose. Le personnel n'est pas tout le temps présent pour nous renseigner.Les douches ne sont pas très propres et pratiques.

It's one more hostel running only for making money and not for or by travellers. Everything is extra: towels, lockers, hostelworld fee, city tax, breakfast. Facilities are poor. Low maintainance. There is not even soap in the bathroom. Cheap, but rather pay a little bit more and go somewhere else.
