This was a pretty good hostel. Private keyed entry lock boxes for each bed was a plus. Breakfast was reasonable at 5 Euro and offered a good selection. Customer service varied depending on the person sitting behind the desk, nobody in particular was outstanding. Location was good for the museums which lie outside of the city center. One bathroom for each shared room caused some waiting for the shower. Not bad.

Great place! Stayed there for about 4 nights, and couldn't have been happier about the location and atmosphere.

Very clean and well kept hostel. I stayed in an 8 person dorm and they had safes as well as clean towels each day for everybody in the room. The breakfast was not bad for 5 euro. Location next to the museums is nice, but its a bit of a walk to get to the downtown area. Overall a great hostel for the money!

I found it somewhat hard to meet people here because there isn't much of a lounge area. However, that being said, it is an AMAZINGLY clean hostel. It used to be a hotel so they're the nicest bathrooms I've ever seen. And the staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast doesn't come with it, so I wouldn't recommend it because it wasn't anything special.

Everything was terrific. As an "older" adult, I had never stayed in a hostel, but I found it to be a rewarding experience that I would do again.

We had a great time at Hostel Van Gogh. Originally a hotel, it has the atmosphere of one, however also has the modern facilities and comfortable rooms of a modern hotel. The breakfast was definitely worth the money, the people were very friendly, and the location was awesome, just a block from the Van Gogh Museum, one more to the Rijksmuseum and iamsterdam sign. A little on the expensive side, but definitely worth it if you want something a bit nicer, it's worth the money.

The asian guy on the front desk wasn't so friendly... but the rest was, the breakfast you should pay before to have 1.5 euros discount and it was great food for starting the day.

Essentially a hotel with extra beds thrown into the rooms to make them dorms. Breakfast is an extra 5 euro but its warm and good, and there's sometimes bacon! Amsterdam is overall expensive so don't be put off by the price, as you're getting a clean, quiet stay. Only con is that the reception allowed a pizza delivery man to come up to our room at 3am, a HUGE security risk and very inconsiderate to sleeping guests. While your mileage may vary with roommates, reception shouldn't have allowed it.

Lovely hostel. Extremely clean - with a fresh towel and linen everyday. I really liked the location, it's very close to the rijk and van gogh museums, and feels very safe. I would definitely stay there again.

I always use to Hostel world when I stay at traveling. The reson why I did this score about Van Goh, because they dont have curtain each bed even mix domitory room. if someone back to late time to turn on the light the room, we woke up! that was very annoying and also hostel stuff ( chinese guy ?) his behave is not like professtional way. not smiling for customers..... As I always use UK one, they are nice customer's service. but only one, I felt happy that room has hand shower.

location, security, cleanliness was good, but only downside is that the staff wasn't much friendly. Especially those on the day-shift. I can understand that they were frustrated, but it's not reason to deal with other customers with an attitude.

The hotel is directly across the street from the Van Gogh Museum. It is also located right next to a tram stop, so getting around is easy. The dining area is also a hangout area, which is always full of fellow travelers. The room was very large and clean, and the connected bathroom was newly updated and very nice. The shower clogs easily though. The front desk girl was very anti-tourist and anti-immigrant, it was a bit off-putting. Other than that, we enjoyed our stay here.

More of a hotel feel than hostel. Beds were comfortable and the room was nice. One shower per room is nice (no Lon line ups) lots of room in there as well. Pretty close to the bus to get you further ino Amsterdam. Would come back as it was a nice stay.

Easily the best hostel in Amsterdam. Well at least for someone like me who appreciates a quiet environment, good hygiene and a modest price tag.

Rooms are like converted hotel rooms. Our 6-bed dorm was not too spacious but it was comfortable, and the bathroom was fabulous - massive shower, and plush sink. Great location in the heart of the museum quarter, a stone's throw from the Rijksmuseum and Vondelpark, and on several tram lines. My only reservation was what can only be described as a prickly attitude of the man who I presume was the manager at the desk. otherwise a pleasant stay.

Really nice clean place, more like a hotel though, no common area or cooking facilities. Still a good place to stay though and easy to get everywhere on the trams.
