O hotel é bem localizado, tem uma equipe bastante solicita, mas no quarto em que fiquei (D) o banheiro era fraco, muito pequeno e o ralo do chuveiro nao descia a agua.

The owner shouldn't stay at the reception! He doesn't know how to treat his customers and his colleagues!

Washroom in dorm quite crowded, very humid after taking shower, water dripped from ceiling. The safe in the room would display password every time, quite insecure if your roommates are in the room. However, excellent location and staff were quite helpful and friendly most of the time.

No está cerca del centro, pero se llega rápido caminando, lo malo fue que hacías frío para ir caminando, pero fue tolerable. El hostal está muy bien, estaba limpio. Si regresaría.

Coming from the central station, the Van Gogh Hostel is very easy to find, when you take the tram(2 or 5). You can reach everything by foot, in 5 minutes you are in the shopping streets. The breakfast for only 5€ was nice, very good coffee, only the rolls were a bit dry. My room was clean and had everything you need, a little shampoo would have been nice but all in all I felt comfortable and would have liked to stay longer.

The hostel was nice with good facilities, also the location was good but the staff guy when we made the check in was totally aggressive, he gave me and my friend such a bad impression of the place so you gotta work on it. Anyways, cheers.

Everything is good. Basic breakfast can be included as a part of the package.

Great hostel, great location. Not too far from the city about a 20-30 minute walk depending what route you take. It was situated right next to vondelpark, I Amsterdam sign, and a few museums. I was travelling solo and was looking for somewhere quiet and secure and that was here. If you are looking for a party hostel l I'd maybe go somewhere more central. The people in my room were lovely. The staff were helpful giving us vouchers for cruises and recommending places to go.

This is not a hostel. Is a hotel with a few shared bedrooms. So, there is no common room, no bar, and the atmosphere is like a hotel. They have GREAT beds, big and comfortable. Bathroom inside the room. Nevertheless, breakfast is expensive, it is somewhat far from the center (30 min walk), and the staff sucks. There is this chinnese guy who treated us like hell. Bad tempered and showting all the time. It is a good place to stay if you just want to sleep in your room.

Not the hostel fault of course, but the location is 30 minutes of a walk from town. I love exploring the city but that was just too far. Tram are frequently outside the hostel. Our room 407 was so so good. Really impressed. Value for money and more. Breakfast was €5 per night look very good value also. School kids every morning outside did not disturb us, so please don't get put off from any reviews about the kids.

My friend and I had a lovely stay here. The staff was kind and sorted out a mistake I had made on my booking. The breakfast is 5€ if you sign up the night before and it is worth it. Lots of variety. The location was great and it is very clean. I'd definitely stay here again.

I booked this "Hostel" and when i arrived i just found out that it is a Hotel! So don't exspect the typical open- minded Hostel atmosphere. As a single traveller it might be hard to socialise yourself there! Anyway, location was good- but definitley overpriced on weekends!
