Felt like a budget motel., but with eight people in a space built for two. Good location outside of the main tourist area, which I would recommend. Breakfast was OK, nothing special but worth eating.

The room was small, but that's to be expected. Breakfast was great.

Location is nice. Rooms are small, but nice. AC controls didn't work right, but the room stayed comfortable. Would stay again, very close to the trams, busses, and museums. (only blocks)

Wifi was unusable. Asides from that the hostel is very nice, feels more like a hotel as there is one attached to the hostel, which detracts from the atmosphere, but overall I would recommend.

So much better than expected. Room was clean and very nice. Better than some hotels I've stayed in.

this hostel looks like a hotel, I stayed with other three people in a 4 bedroom dorm, it was awsome, good internet, good shower, televison. Everything was really nice. I would recommend it at 100%.

We stayed on the hotel side of the hostel so our accommodations were extra nice. Lovely rooms and great location if you don't want to be in the noise of the red light district

Loved the location, very clean rooms and great breakfast. But on day 2 of my 3 night stay, the cleaners robbed my security box of any cash they could get their hands on. Staff did nothing to correct this loss of hundreds of Euros, and told me they couldn't question their cleaning staff. They finally comp'd me my bed but that wasn't nearly the amount that was stolen. Security in the hostel lax at best. No key needed to get in to the bldg. Security of guests not taken seriously. STAY AWAY!

Little pricey but it feels more like a hotel than a hostel

Towrls were sometimes way to small to even cover your body & at times the shower was so hot and we couldnt turn the temperature knob up or down!

The bunk beds are super tall which made me want to switch after the first night staying there but Ben though one staff member told me I could, the next day I was told by a different person that they had to hold the two free beds in case an old or larger person needed a bed. That's a first. The room was very clean, tiny lockers (big enough for valuables only), great bedding, decent 5euro breakfast but wish it were free, and no common area with a community feel because it was shared with a hotel.

Mi sono trovata molto bene, mi e' molto piaciuta l'ubicazione perche molto vicina ai musei, si poteva fare tutto camminando, il personale molto disponibile e gentile.

Rooms were very comfortable and modern, and staff were friendly. Location was a bit far out of the centre but a quick tram was easy to catch. Would definitely recommend this hostel.

Great location right across from the Van Gogh museum and next to the Rijksmuseum. Hostel offers bikes for rent which is the best and quickest way to get around the city. They also offer a decent traditional European breakfast. Very clean and friendly staff. I would definitely recommend staying here!

Lovely staff were very welcoming and helpful. Definitely pick up the discount coupons from reception to get the most out of you stay in A'dam. €5 breakfast was excellent.

Cool hostel with an interesting feel. Lots of very artsy people who aren't very social hang out in common area and everyone is high. Rooms were clean but the stairs sucked.
