The place was pretty good, except for the fact that my hostel mates brought food which in combination with leaving the windows open (it was very very hot) attracted 2 little mice which was quite gross... Another thing to keep in mind (although really doesn't matter) is the fact that hostel Croydon is located along the "gay street", again doesn't change anything other than the fact that the shops are catered to homosexuals. Otherwise great location and very close to everything (train

During our stay, one of the broken lockers in the room was fixed, which was nice. Some of our Canadian roommates felt unsafe by the fact that the 24/7 reception seemed to had been unmanned for a while during one night, even though the front door is always open. One of the girls pointed this out to one of the male staff members, he treated her in a very demeaning way, this kind of brought a little cloud over our stay. The 2 female staff members, we met, however, were very nice and forthcoming.

Location of this hostel is fantastic. value for money is not bad considering the location. However you get even less than you pay for. Security is awful. (All locks are physical keys and front door never locked. 6 lockers in a 10 bed room, 2 were broken). Bunk beds have no ladders and worst of all MICE!! Had a load of Dutch goodies all of which had small bites out of. They replaced some of them but my advice is do not stay here! There are much better places. Amsterdam is tiny stay elsewhere!

This Hostel is excellently located close to Centraal Station on a hopping street with lots of cool bars, restaurants coffeeshops, & other things. It's right next to the Red Light District too if that's what you're into. The staff was very nice, & by staying there, you get discounts at a couple of restaurants and bars nearby, and they have cards with free discounts for lots of places around Amsterdam. However, the hostel itself is dirty & sketchy as f***. I'd totally stay there again, though.

Probably the worst hostel I've been in my entire life. I wouldn't suggest this hostel to no one. The place was really dirty, messy and noisy. Around 4am me and my gf left the hostel because we realize there was a MOUSE running in our room. They should close this hostel. Horrible.

It was a lot worse than I had expected it to be, there were flies in our room and an awful smell coming from the bathroom. Shame, as its location was so great !

Mice in rooms, one staff member very rude, bathrooms didn't function well/smelly, no rails down steep stairs.

A nice central place in the red light, however, with no common areas - you rarely meet others staying there. Also, the stairs are very hard to negotiate. Apart from that, friendly staff and no issues with security.

If all you're looking for is a bed to crash in and a shower this is fine and pretty cheap. The stairs are ridiculously steep but that's Amsterdam.

This place is disgusting. There was black mold in the bathroom shower-areas. The toilet was so close to the wall it was near-impossible to use (for a male or a female); you have to pretty much squat / stand to the side of it. There is no common room whatsoever. And those stairs are death waiting to happen.

Each person had their own locker. Location right in the red light district - may be good or bad depending what you want. It was a little loud at times, but I liked that it was close to the train station. The girl was really nice working but the man was very rude. No common room, but the room was nice for the money we paid.

This is hands down the worst hostel I've ever been to. Rude staff, rats, guests smoking weed wherever. No places to socialize/hang out, the fact that litterally everybody in amsterdam had access to our room etc etc. It's central, and that's about the only good thing I can say about it. More like a gritty drug den than a hostel. Do NOT go here!

The hostel was very uncounfortable. Is difficult to acces in the entrance, due to a big stair that looks unsafe and the spaces are very reduced. The bathroom was always unclean and it was used for more people than the room hosted. The staff was good in the day when there were some girls but in the night there was a man that couldn't speak english and we needed some help and he didn't know anything. And the price was too high.


66%

The price doesn't reflect the quality of the room. The position is really great for the night life of the city. The access is not so comfortable, because the stairs are narrow and steep as well for the room and the bathroom. The personnel is kind and available. There are also few good agreements with other coffees and pubs.

The Hostel is located in the city centre, making it easy to get around the city. The room got cleaned every morning, which i find very important. And they provide a locker in the room or at the reception so you don't have to take your valuables when you're exploring the city. Definitely good value for money!

Good, clean place and not so expensive. In the middle of the center so ideal for sightseeing or enjoying the nightlife.

Good, clean hostel. Felt very secure although it's in the center of a big city. I've stayed here before, the rooms were renovated recently and improved a lot! Hostel staff was kind and very helpful.
