Amazing location..spacious dorms with safes but no good place to keep luggage. You pay 5€for breakfast but worth it. No kitchen or bar or other food facility. 1min walking from tram stop. Place can be more lively and interactive..its a bit expensive but then I liked it and wanted to extend but it was overbooked. Staff are good but can be more friendly and interactive. One of them was good and helpful dont remember her name but shez got short hair and pretty lively so ull notice.

Für einen so hohen Preis für ein 8 Bett Zimmer habe ich eindeutig mehr erwartet. Die Zimmer waren zwar sauber, das Bad ließ aber sehr zu wünschen übrig. Außerdem stand auf der Internetseite es gäbe eine Kochnische. Allerdings handelt es sich hierbei nur um einen Wasserkocher und eine Mikrowelle. Das Personal wirkt, als hätten sie keine Lust dort zu arbeiten. Ich werde es nicht weiterempfehlen und bei meinem nächsten Aufenthalt mich für ein anderes Hostel entscheiden!

If you're looking for a quiet place, near some of the major attractions, then this is definitely it. The accomodations are very good, rooms are cleaned every day, the ensuites are also awesome. Neighborhood is really good, both for touristic attractions and for bars and stuff, which are less than 10 minutes walk away from the hostel. The great Vondelpark is also just around the corner, great place to rent a bike! Price is not the best, but I really have nothing to complain.

For the price we paid, one of the best accommodation of our trip. Only found the room a little cold, but nothing too uncomfortable. We'd go back for sure!

Nice staff who even prepares you a hot chocolate when you are sick. Rooms are clean and the bathroom is big. Two things missing: a kitchen and some storing space to put your stuff in. Al you have your own little safe to put your most valuable things in the room.

A estrutura é de um hotel, então se estiver procurando um hostel pra conhecer gente n é o ideal. O hotel é mt bom e fiquei muito confortável durante todos os dias. Cafe da manhã bem farto e o quarto e roupa de cama são arrumados diariamente. Não fica tão próximo da região da dam square, red light que é a parte mais badalada de Amsterdã, mas dá pra ir andando ate a Leidsplein e curtir uns pubs por lá.

J'ai passé 5 nuits dans une chambre partagée avec 5 autres filles, pour moi c'était la première fois d'une expérience pareil! ça c'est super bien passé!! La chambre venait nettoyée chaque matin, et à mon retour c'était bien propre. Le personnel vraiment cordiale, sympa et prêt pour te renseigner et t'indiquer les lieux intéressés! Petite chose négative: ma chambre était au deuxième étage et le matin on sentait l'odeur du bacon dans la chambre, préparé pour le petit déjeuner!

Very nice place to stay and close to museums and short walk to shops and restaurants. Not a very social environment. Staff was very helpful.

Pretty good place to stay, close enough to most things. A good selection of rooms to cater to all kinds of visitors. A great breakfast served every day. The price didn't really reflect on the general quality of the place, but overall my stay at Van Gogh was pleasant and I would suggest it as an option to anyone thinking of stopping by Amsterdam, especially if you like your museums close by!

The best hostel I stayed in so far. Very clean bathrooms, they give you soap and a towel. The beds are nice and comfortable. Breakfast is really good and worth the 5€

We opted for the private room and it was WELL WORTH our money. It was a fancy hotel room for a hostel price so we were blown away. The beds and pillows were extremely comfortable and we very much enjoyed our large window and door access to a back patio. The only complaint we had was that check-in online was said to be Noon but a VERY RUDE concierge did not allow us to check-in until 2 or store our bags in the meantime. This man was one of the rudest people I have ever encountered in my travels.

The best thing about the hostel is the location. It's extremely easy to get around using the 2 and 5 lines. I wish there was more common space in the hostel. Yes there is a "dining area", but it's not a great place to meet other travelers. Overall, my experience was good, except for the manager. He isn't very friendly and always sounds like he is talking down to people. He is the only reason why I would consider not going back.

O elevador não estava funcionando e subir varios lances naquela escada estreita, carregando duas malas grandes foi horrivel. O wifi não funcionava direito no quarto. Achei que o café da manhã estava incluso e cheguei lá e era pago. Era muito bom, mas achei que estivesse incluso. Não achei os funcionários da recepção prestativos

Hostel com cara de Hostel, muito bem localizado e super perto dos principais museus.
