I stayed in the Hostel Van Gogh for three days with some friends, and we really liked the place. It's clean, safe, the atmosphere is very nice, the staffs were great, the breakfast is good and the hostel is well located as well. I'd definitely stay there again.

Booked an eight bed dorm for 3 nights for eight of us. We loved the hotel/hostel the rooms were modern and clean. Loved the fact the towels were changed everyday and had a breakfast on offer. The location is lovely, it's a gorgeous part of the city, loads of things to do in that area but if want the heart of the city, it's a tiny bit out of the way. Would definitely stay there again thou, had the best time.

Arrived on time for check in asked to wait some extra hours. Asked the receptionist/manager (Jay Zheng) about printing out some museum tickets got screamed upon for being stupid and not understanding simple Microsoft office (in Dutch) which was totally unacceptable, unprofessional and disrespectful. Who does talk to paying customers like that? That ruined the whole experience, never again will I ever return there. Person on the desk should defiantly be brought upon a closer inspection

Excelente hostel! Súper recomendable. Si bien no tiene cocina disponible para los huéspedes cuenta con jarra eléctrica para calentar agua, microondas y té gratis. El café es de máquina y cuesta 1 Euro. El baño es muy bueno, cuenta con jabón líquido tanto para manos como para el cuerpo en la ducha. Incluye toallas que las cambian todos los días. Está a 3km de la estación central (en la otra punta de la ciudad) pudiendo encontrar todos los puntos turísticos en el medio de ese trayecto. IMPECABLE!

Quartos grandes e espaçosos, camas boas com edredom bom e limpo, toalhas limpas, banheiro ótimo, cofres nos quartos, televisão, café da manhã custa 5 euros mas é uma delicia com bastante variedade! Amei!

Had a really nice little single room for myself at such a good price. I was only there for one night, just needed somewhere to have a good sleep. All museums are so close! Comfy bed and was so clean.

We had a really nice weekend at Hotel Van Gogh. We stayed in a double room with own bathroom. Felt more like staying in a hotel than an Hostel!

Todo bien excepto que nos pusieron en una pieza de 9 camas siendo que habíamos reservado en una de 8, el resto todo perfecto. Baños limpios. El desayuno es increíble (cuesta 5€). No tiene cocina para los huéspedes (hay refrigeradores, microondas, vasos, platos, etc pero no se puede cocinar). Totalmente recomendado!

Excelente en todo sentido. Nos hemos sentido muy cómodos, una habitación amplia y on todos los lujos. Muy agradecidos la verdad.

Nice place to sleep, although not super special. Clean and comfortable, staff was lovely but not much atmosphere for making friends or hanging out. So not the best for solo travellers, but otherwise it's fine :)

The hostel most look like a hotel with great staff and amazing localization near Rijksmusem and Vangogh but the breakfast was 6.5 euros per day and once u book the option for couple room they just put two single beds together that end up getting apart during the night and u end up falling in between!

Good location, good price and super clean. Just note it is not a social hostel, if it is what you're looking for.

Front desk staff was often uninterested or flat out rude. It's standard for backpackers to leave their luggage in the luggage room before check-in, but we were met with a rude "check-in isn't until 2:00" upon walking through the front door. When we replied that we were aware, but wanted to leave our bags he wasn't very helpful, and we had to ask a couple of times for directions to the luggage room. Facilities themselves are great, though more like a hotel than hostel. Good location, clean.
