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.

El hostel, es en realidad un un Hotel, en el que a algunas piezas las hicieron compartidas!! por lo tanto tenés muy buenas instalaciones y comodidades y el desayuno es excelente, (aunque se paga aparte 6 euros vale la pena). Pero si querés un ambiente mas joven y divertido, como un tipico hostel, este no lo es, (mas alla que al dormir compartis dormitorio con mucha gente, me refiero a que no tenes espacios comunes de esparcimiento como en otros hostels)

Die Ausstattung des Hostels ist super! Es fühlt sich wie ein Hotelzimmer an, außer das 6 Betten im Zimmer stehen! Leider waren die Mitarbeiter sehr unfreundlich! just before I left, I asked if the receptionist could take an eye on my luggage which i just got out the luggage room because I wanted to use the toilet quickly. She saif "NOOO!" in such a rude way. I think the recptionist in gerneral were not very friendly.

The hostel was labelled "Hotel" from the outside which was confusing and the directions provided on the booking by the hostel were not very thorough. Besides that the room and beds were comfortable with plenty of power points. Bathrooms were nice and clean and more like a hotel than a hostel. Not a lot of communal sitting space besides the eating area.

Veníamos preocupados por los comentarios que habíamos leído en la web sobre la limpieza y los ratones en los alojamientos baratos de Amsterdam. Este hotel cubrió nuestras expectativas, esto es, limpieza aceptable y lo mejor, no había ratones! Para destacar el desayuno. Vale la pena el costo adicional!

Good location, lovely room and friendly staff. Including one member in particular, young female with blonde hair? Who checked us in. She was very helpful and friendly and great at suggesting things for us to do.
