Another 'hostel' with no kitchen. But still a lovely place to stay with really friendly staff.

Had little interaction with staff, so a little hard to rate them. But that aside, had a great stay, definitely the nicest and most modern hostel I have seen on my travels, I would recommend it!

the mixed room are too small for 8 people, can't even breath there. I paied for the breakfast and they didn't put my number on the list so I have to wait for them to check it...

great location, really loved the city wish I stayed longer. Had everything a hostel needs but no kitchen if you're thinking of cooking.

I thought this hostel was awesome, definitely a more high-end than a traditional hostel, it's more of a hostel-hotel hybrid. I agree with other reviewers that the community vibe was a little lacking, (I never went to the common area, mostly because it was pretty empty) but that's because the rooms are awesome! And luckily, if you have good roommates for your stay, you get to meet a bunch of awesome people that way too. Wifi is also good, for those who need to know!

Das Hotel ist eine super Lösung für Leute, die nah am Geschehen sein wollen, aber keine horrenden Preise zahlen wollen. Alles per Fuß erreichbar! Allerdings "lockt" dies zahlreiche jüngere Reisegruppen an, die dann gerne mal die Nacht zum Tag machen und über die schöne alte Holztreppe poltern... :-) Daher: nichts für ruheliebende Personen oder Dienstreisen, bei denen man auf erholsamen Nachtschlaf angewiesen ist! Sehr nettes und kompetentes Personal, die am Empfang auch immer erreichbar waren!

Hostel is great, very clean, with good bed and bathroom. The street is quite, since no car allowed to enter it. I would just say that is no extra bathrroms and showers besides the ones inside the room. Thsi can be sometimes annoing when 3-4-5-8 people wake at the same time and everyone need to use the bath and the are no extras in the hall.

The place is amazing, yet I would rather have a locker rather than a safe.

This almost felt more line a hotel than a hostel. Not a particularly warm atmosphere, but they did have legit safes in the rooms, tv, and beds were already made and towels included, which was nice.

In primis è un hotel e non un ostello; atmosfera sotto zero ma posizione( per il turismo tranquillo) e pulizia al top. Accolti da un asiatico dai modi rudi e per niente cordiale, il personale non è sicuramente di quello che ti lascia il segno, fa giusto giusto il suo lavoro. Ultima nota negativa : asilo di bambini vicino. mattinate con sveglia rumorosa

Absolutely terrific. The staff were so kind and helpful, and the room was stunning. It was meant to be a hostel room, but it was like a 4* hotel room. Best place to stay in Amsterdam!

Good clean hostel. Amazing showers. Good but expensive breakfast. Within walking distance to everything.

Everything was great, it's just that the electronic lock on my door didn't work all the time.

O atendimento foi ótimo e tudo que foi prometido foi devidamente cumprido. Se for voltar para Amsterdã, pretendo ficar no mesmo local.

Io e i miei amici abbiamo soggiornato in una stanza da 8 persone con bagno privato. Al nostro arrivo la camera era pulita e in ordine, c'era la possibilità di farsi cambiare le salviette ogni giorno, il bagno era davvero meglio di quanto mi aspettassi e la doccia gigante! Posizione ottima: zona tranquilla e in 10-15 minuti a piedi sei in pieno centro. Abbiamo però dovuto pagare qualcosa di più del previsto, senza riuscire a capire il motivo.
