I was expecting so much more from our room and hostel. But the staff was really friendly.

This hostel was a far drive from the central station. Not its fault at all, just expected to be closer. That's on me. The staff (well, the guy at the front desk, only staff I saw) was very helpful, very friendly. Thank you to him. Hostel was gross. Carpets were stained, walls were peeling, rooms smelled bad, doors were broken, bathroom was gross. I felt dirty just lying in bed. I would find somewhere else to stay. Coughing up ten more dollars a night would be worth an upgrade.

You can't really walk to the city center from here. At best it is like a 30min bike ride and you will get lost. Pretty easy to take the trams though, so do that. Beds were comfortable, and the people staying there are great. Decent Wifi. Great Bathroom. Not the best security though. They had 4 of those small safes for 8 beds.


If you need a safe and clean place to stay for the night, this is it. My room has an bathroom inside, It's not close to the center, but bus and tram are readily available. Not much atmosphere or chance to social.


My first hostel experience. It was worth it, ready for the next one

The biggest surprise of all hostels I stayed. The staff is amazing, the rooms are amazing,the showers,the breakfast. The best hostel in Amsterdam... very cheap compared to the facilities and services that they offer. Very worthy. I will be coming this hostel definitly.


I wanted to check in earlier.

Didn't have the best hostel experience here. It's located rather far away from the city center (20 min tram ride). Not a good place to meet other travelers and the rooms are a little cramped. If you do stay here though, go to the doner kebab place next door and get some kapsalon. Mmmm kapsalon


Hostel is located in a rather dodgy area with only a few kebab type shops and a little supermarket opposite. While we were at dinner a few shops down from hostel, two men came in and sat at the table opposite us and snorted some drugs. Not a nice area at all. Staff weren't very helpful either. The rooms were nice and big and the bathrooms were great but the walls next to bunks weren't clean and the room just felt old and drab. They did have safes though. Wouldn't recommend staying here.


Worse experience ever had in a hostel/hotel. We were woke up the two nights we stayed there at 3 and 5 a.m by some drunk group of kids that were knocking on our door and desperatly trying to break into our room! Believe me this was no fun! Next morning of course we complained but the staff didnt give so much importance. Is really not centrally located and not easy to reach if you want to enjoy the city center. The carpets are stained and look kind of disgusting KEEP AWAY FROM THIS HOTEL!

Just terrible. The hostel is located at a very dodgy place. We never felt safe walking outside by ourselves. The staff wasn't helpful at all and was constantly grumpy. You couldn't ask them anything. Do NOT recommend!


About 30 minutes from the city center.


Great hostel for Amsterdam. Cheap and clean rooms with private bathrooms. Comfy beds with sheets, blankets, pillows and towels provided. Hallways and common areas aren't the cleanest but not the worst either. Tram and bus stops right outside and coffee shop down the street. Would definitely stay here again!


Staff are quite rude especially when u need help (one woman in particular). Rooms are nice and clean, abit out of the city centre but lots of public transport to get you there. No real common room or place to relax outside of your room.


Staff are not very helpful or friendly especially if you have a problem, rooms are clean hallways are quite dirty and need abit of work.


it was really clean and the bathroom was really big, but when we were checking in, the reception started helping us, and then answered a phone call and just ignored us for a solid 10 minutes before finishing helping us. one of the girls in our room literally was asleep the entire time we were there (from 4pm to 6am the next morning) so everyone had to tip toe around and keep quiet. obviously not the hostels fault, just annoying. not a social hostel at all.


Bit far from much in the city, but a friendly and fairly clean place. The longest corridor to reach the room...


The hostel itself was great; clean, nice ensuite, security boxes in the room. Well connected to the centre by trams during the day and buses at night. The only problem: we booked through hostel world, requesting 7 beds in an 8 person room, and were told that they were available. When we arrived, we got 6 beds in one room, and 1 in another but we had not been told this in advance. Advice: ring the hostel itself to make sure you get what you ordered on hostelworld.

not at all displeased with this place. maybe a bit pricey considering the location far from the center of the city.


The bed was very uncomfortable with a beam running down the middle (hard to explain) and the staff weren't overly helpful. The breakfast was good though.
