It's about what you'd expect for €10 a night. The bathrooms aren't amazing and the beds were really squeaky, but it was pretty good value for money to be honest. The beds were comfy and the room was always warm (a great thing when it's so cold in Amsterdam in the winter). The stairs are hard to get used to but they're a characteristic often found in Amsterdam, however if you don't like steep stairs don't come here! All in all it was pretty decent and the location was great.

Awesome hostel stayed here all three times ive been in amsterdam and never been disappointed, the rooms are basic but for what you are paying you cant expect much, my room had a nice shower and a lovely view of the street outside. The location is ideal just off of the main streets so you are very close to everything. The staff are very friendly and the coffee shop downstairs is really relaxed, it was easy as a lone traveller to hang out downstairs and speak to a few locals and other travellers.

Perfect location, right in the centre, close to the train station and so close to many food places and coffee shops. The stairs are scary steep but if you take your time you'll be fine. The rooms are basic but you have a little sink in your room, which is good. And there's free wifi, a shower room and a bathroom for each floor. Only issue is it got very cold in the room, but the heater helped! Loved the help from the lady in the coffee shop. Would return.

Check in is not at a normal reception but at the bar of a coffeeshop next door. Staff was rude to my friend when checking in. The stairs, I didnt believe the reviews at first, but after seeing this I have to agree. Even when sober they are almost impossible to climb. Hostel itself was just ok for the money we paid. No facilities just stairs, rooms and bathrooms so there is no atmosphere whatsoever. Nevertheless, for just one night this was perfect. Cheap and a central location.

The location was very good but everything else was horrible. The heater wasn't working and it was so cold. The staff were really rude and not helpful or friendly. There was no internet access in our room although it was stated in the facilities. The stairs were really sharp and you can almost fall if you are with a big heavy bag. I won't recommend it to anyone

if you are searching for a bed to sleep, just for one night, then this place is okay. But there is no common aria, no internet, no place to sit expect a super small and uncomfortable bed. There is coffee shop downstairs but is working only after 7 pm. Location is more or less good. Stuff is like robots, no emotions no nth, they briefly give u info and cannot wait to get rid of you.

I would stongly not recommend this hostel. STRONGLY NOT! You would rather pay a little bit extra for hostel or hotel nearby that area. The hostel is really really small and the very strong smell of the weeds (for those who doesn't like weeds). I didn't even want to stay longer in the hostel at all. Wake up early and stay until late night. That's only for sleeping. Exactly just for sleeping.
