Really nice place, very handy for the mainmuseums and the tram. The place is as good as a hotel - we would stay again


The only reason that I chose "average" for security was the fact that you did not need any sort of key or ID to enter the hostel so potentially, people who are not staying there can freely use the building That being said, the rooms were secure with safes. The hostel was in a great location for the museums and it is possible to walk into the center, or it is very easy to catch a tram right outside of the hostel. Room and bathroom were clean as well.

was really good my traveled to amsterdam the hostel is amazing i recommend to everyone thankss


Very good facilities, great bathrooms. Rude and unhelpful staff. It is a shame because otherwise it would be a great hostel. They gave vague answers, made me feel as if having to answer questions was a huge inconvenience and were simply rude at times. Little info about immediate area e.g. where the closest internet café would be. It is a shame because otherwise it would be a great place to stay.


Loved the hotel!

Great location and facilities. Staff were a bit unhelpful and the place didn't have a great atmosphere.


The only people in the common area were middle aged groups and groups with little kids so it didnt have the typical youth hostel feel. And the staff didnt feel very inviting. Apart from those points it was excellent. Clean room, safes in the room, free bag storage, breakfast for pretty cheap. I would definitely recommend it.


Really good place to stay. Clean and safe. Location was good with tram stops and bus stops just around the corner.
