We booked the hostel for only one night after the kingsday weekend. We were pretty excited about the cheap offer and the great location. However, sleeping there for only one night ended up as a nightmare because my body was covered with bedbug bites (as a doctor told me) the next day! It is obvious that the Hostel deals with serious bedbug issues. It is not worth but irresponsible going there since you have to deal with serious consequences afterwards. Staff was very nice though.

Ideal for seeing the city. No common area or kitchen but you are in the middle of the city.

The place looks a little bit sketchy but it's okay overall. Amsterdam is an expensive city after all.

Very small room but clean and great location... True what they say about the stairs but no bed bugs. Was fine for one night. Our top floor room was cute and cosy with a tv and sink. No hand wash anywhere though, put some in please hostel utopia!

four of us in all stayed at the hostel, was a great location, wasn't too noisy, everything was great until we checked out... the check out clerk, started kicking off about unnecessary matters, and starting bring up irrelevant material, after being a therapist for a good half an hour we shaked hands and went our separate ways... overall I was very happy, until the end when we felt no longer welcomed....overall i would give 4/5

We stayed in on of the private double rooms. Ours was, although very small, nice and relatively clean. The bed is big but a bit too soft. The only real problem was a very strong cigarette smell. If you go there in warmer months there are windows to ventilate the room. In the winter this solution has its downsides.
