Basically a hotel in hostel form. Impeccable cleanliness, and, if you value your showers, seriously nice ensuites to the dorms. It being such a classy, well kept, sophisticated 'hostel', I felt seriously indulgent. Great location across from the Museum quarter, so so so convinient if you enjoy living out of museums such as I do. Easy 15 min walk to the city. What it lacks is a true 'backpackers' vibe; DEFINITELY NOT a party hostel, it doesn't really have a communal space to meet and hang out
Great location - tho not in the center of all the nightlife dynamics, it's right next to the Van Gogh museum and a lot of nice places. There's a school right next to it so there are a lot of kids during the day but at night it's quite and tranquil. It's really clean and the facilities are good. I was in a female dorm.
Great hostel. Everyone gets a small safe,own plug and nightlight above their bed. very new and clean. staff was freindly and helpful. breakfast has a variety of breads, fruit, coffee, juice, and sandwhich meat for lunch later on. about 1.5 mles (~35 min walk) from big sites like the central station, red light district, and dam square, but we loved the walk along the canals. When we were tired the tram dropped us off righy outside. Right next to rij museum and iamsterdam sign. Loved our stay

a female staff is really bad-attitude~the location is great for visiting museums~
Great location, very close to the Van Gogh museum and the drinking/restaurant area of leidseplein and an easy 10 minute tram ride from Amsterdam Centraal, rooms are good, showers are amazing, and while the atmosphere itself wasn't a party, it was very relaxed, and I had no trouble finding people to go out with.

The woman working at the reception was passive and unfriendly whenever I needed to ask something. Upon arrival I was given my key card and that was all.... no explanation about the facilities in the hostel or the main sites of Amsterdam. Disappointing service and a shame that breakfast was not included for the price. That being said, the dorm was clean and my dorm mates were friendly. It was also nice to have a small personal safe in the dorm to put valuables.
Location was about a twenty minute walk from train station. It was only about a ten minute walk to bars and sights. Very clean and good wifi.
