The hostel is very good located its is in front the Van Gogh Museum and next to the most of the touristic atractions. There is a lift which means you dont need to go up stairs with your bags,there is in the rooms and there is a good value you can book the check in. But in day there was a guy in suit behind reception VERY unfriendly either towards guests either to staff which made the atmosphere too tense .

I had a great time at this hostel! It's hard to choose a location in Amsterdam—the city sprawls and there are things to see all over. This hostel is very close to the major museums but far from the train station. I stayed in a single room and it felt more like a hotel than a hostel. It had a TV and a very comfortable bed. The only issue was a mildew smell coming from the bathroom... I only stayed 2 nights but if it had been longer I would have said something to the front desk.

The male manager running this hostel is extremely rude and very uncooperative. My entire luggage was stolen from their secure(locked) storage room & he was very unhelpful when this occurred. He didn't want to help & didn't seem to care all my belongings had been taken whilst under his supervision. Purely based on his poor attitude & horrible customer service I would not recommend staying at this hostel to any traveller.

Loved the mix between hotel and hostel here. Great ensuite facilities in the room. There was even a TV! And tea. Lovely place, wish I could've spent more time here but I only stayed a night and I was always out and about. It's not dirt cheap but for Amsterdam on a Friday night it was pretty decent. Highly recommend.

Very nice clean hostel and easy to find from the directions on the hostel page, Only bad point is that its a 35 minute walk from the centre or 15 minutes on the tram which isn't as cheap as other European cities but probably worth getting if you will be in and out a lot. No kitchen to cook in, but a good breakfast bar for €5 per person per day. Very clean spacious rooms and amazing shower. Beds very comfy and was a major plus point. Safes in every room for each bed which was good. staff helpful

The hostel was a short tram ride away from Amsterdam Central station, their is a tram stop right outside the hostel. The hostel is also very close to the Van Gogh Museum and the 'I amsterdam' sign. The hostel itself is very clean and modern, the dorms are nice, we stayed in an 8 bed room so was very busy but still a good nights sleep. Has safety deposit boxes for your valuables. Wifi also very good! Breakfast is 5 euro but worth it.

The staff from the front desk and from the restaurant are a bit rude (with some exceptions). We were kind of disappointed with that. The rooms were not very clean. The breakfast was the best thing about our stay!

A clean hostel located right next to the Van Gogh meusum. The rooms were great, however the hallways were very smelly and annoying to navigate. Skip the breakfast there, the hot food runs out too fast and you end up paying 5 euro for cereal

Everything about this place was great. It just like a hotel but with more beds obviously. Breakfast was worth the price, very good. The only knock on this place is it was a little far from downtown but there is still cool stuff around the hostel as well.

the hostel's price is high considering what you get. Breakfast costs an additional 5 euros. Should be included because of the high cost of staying there. Staff was very helpful. My roommates were disastrous, but that's not the hostel's fault however they should check how much of a mess their guests make because they made me uncomfortable since they made the room so dirty.

Disgusting facilities and not secure. Anyone could walk into the luggage room and take any bags they chose.

Very clean hostel in a central location. Beautiful rooms and an overall pleasant stay. Felt more like staying in a hotel though, rather than a hostel, and thus it was more difficult to meet fellow travelers to enjoy Amsterdam with

Very good. Far from Amsterdam downtown which is a good location for me. Near the Vondelpark. Easy tram ride to Albert Cuyp Market. Was a good stay for me.

Location is the best part. Outside of the canal ring in a quiet part of town. More of a hotel than a hostel, no common rooms. Not a great layout, 1 bathroom for an 8 bed dorm and no common bathroom. It's not great but it works fine.
