My first problem with this place is that it is definitely advertised as a HOSTEL when I booked. Backpackers, don't be fooled - this is a hotel and the sign hanging above the door when you arrive will gladly surprise you. So, I'm to judge this as a hotel and it was mediocre at best. The worst by far, however, was the Asian man at the reception desk. EXTREMELY rude and unhelpful. Other than that, the rooms are nice and cleaned often, but our shower wasn't working and the WIFI in the rooms sucked.

Great clean hostel, however it's quite far from the red light district which is more what I came for... Right next to museums and 5-10 min walk from city center. Good hostel overall...

Had a pleasant stay, clean room with fresh towels everyday. It was a quite environment specially at night. Great Location, close to most of the Museums. Helpful and friendly staff. Would recommend this Hotel!

Foram duas noites apenas, mas fui muito bem atendida do momento em que entrei até o da saída. A funcionária Desiree foi um amor. Eu esqueci meu óculos de sol no quarto e um amigo brasileiro o pegou para mim somente após muita confirmação de que era meu. Agradeço a todos pela ajuda e ela recuperação do meu óculos querido. Many thanks.

Very clean, modern hostel. Much like a hotel with multiple beds per room. Up to you whether you like that sort of experience or not.

Great hostel! Very friendly and comfortable. Rooms were clean and staff helpful. Right opposite the Van Gogh museum and easy to walk in to town. May not be worth buying breakfast though, there is a supermarket at the end of the street.

Amazing location..spacious dorms with safes but no good place to keep luggage. You pay 5€for breakfast but worth it. No kitchen or bar or other food facility. 1min walking from tram stop. Place can be more lively and interactive..its a bit expensive but then I liked it and wanted to extend but it was overbooked. Staff are good but can be more friendly and interactive. One of them was good and helpful dont remember her name but shez got short hair and pretty lively so ull notice.

Für einen so hohen Preis für ein 8 Bett Zimmer habe ich eindeutig mehr erwartet. Die Zimmer waren zwar sauber, das Bad ließ aber sehr zu wünschen übrig. Außerdem stand auf der Internetseite es gäbe eine Kochnische. Allerdings handelt es sich hierbei nur um einen Wasserkocher und eine Mikrowelle. Das Personal wirkt, als hätten sie keine Lust dort zu arbeiten. Ich werde es nicht weiterempfehlen und bei meinem nächsten Aufenthalt mich für ein anderes Hostel entscheiden!

If you're looking for a quiet place, near some of the major attractions, then this is definitely it. The accomodations are very good, rooms are cleaned every day, the ensuites are also awesome. Neighborhood is really good, both for touristic attractions and for bars and stuff, which are less than 10 minutes walk away from the hostel. The great Vondelpark is also just around the corner, great place to rent a bike! Price is not the best, but I really have nothing to complain.

For the price we paid, one of the best accommodation of our trip. Only found the room a little cold, but nothing too uncomfortable. We'd go back for sure!

Nice staff who even prepares you a hot chocolate when you are sick. Rooms are clean and the bathroom is big. Two things missing: a kitchen and some storing space to put your stuff in. Al you have your own little safe to put your most valuable things in the room.

A estrutura é de um hotel, então se estiver procurando um hostel pra conhecer gente n é o ideal. O hotel é mt bom e fiquei muito confortável durante todos os dias. Cafe da manhã bem farto e o quarto e roupa de cama são arrumados diariamente. Não fica tão próximo da região da dam square, red light que é a parte mais badalada de Amsterdã, mas dá pra ir andando ate a Leidsplein e curtir uns pubs por lá.

J'ai passé 5 nuits dans une chambre partagée avec 5 autres filles, pour moi c'était la première fois d'une expérience pareil! ça c'est super bien passé!! La chambre venait nettoyée chaque matin, et à mon retour c'était bien propre. Le personnel vraiment cordiale, sympa et prêt pour te renseigner et t'indiquer les lieux intéressés! Petite chose négative: ma chambre était au deuxième étage et le matin on sentait l'odeur du bacon dans la chambre, préparé pour le petit déjeuner!

Very nice place to stay and close to museums and short walk to shops and restaurants. Not a very social environment. Staff was very helpful.

Pretty good place to stay, close enough to most things. A good selection of rooms to cater to all kinds of visitors. A great breakfast served every day. The price didn't really reflect on the general quality of the place, but overall my stay at Van Gogh was pleasant and I would suggest it as an option to anyone thinking of stopping by Amsterdam, especially if you like your museums close by!
