Great hostel for a good price with nice rooms and wonderful ensuite bathrooms. The location is nice and close to the main attractions without being right in the middle of town. Only issue was the copious amount of mould on the wall and ceiling in an otherwise clean and modern dorm room. Surely this is something which can be easily cleaned and I hope the owners do something about it. Awesome stay nonetheless.


We had one of the double rooms and when we arrived, the hostel/hotel seemed to be a nice place. The location is right between the museum's square and the street with the high end designers stores. Local transport is near by. The room was small but cute and staff was friendly BUT the beds were disgusting. Blurry bedlinen with dirty pillows and plaids inside. We got the linen changed and the day after we got changed the pillows too, but beds should be checked better by the staff.


The hostel was clean, easily accessible and close to the museum quarter. The other travellers in my dorm were all really friendly but the Asian receptionist was unhelpful and curt, not the best person to be the first point of contact and he did not give a great first impression of the hostel!

We stayed here because I really wanted to go to the museums and galleries and it is PERFECTLY located for this. It is a bit further from the old city but we walked there in 10-15 minutes. We stayed in a private room which was like a hotel. It was comfortable, clean and had a kettle and tv.


I really really enjoyed staying at Van Gogh. Actually it is not a hostel but a hotel. The room is well designed. It is so clean and safe. Location is pretty good just near to the museum plein and tram station. I would definitely recommend it and stay here again!


Staff wasn't quite informative comparing to several places I've visited. They couldn't even answer simple questions like until what time do trams and buses operate, where could travelers purchase ticket, etc.


We stayed in a private room, which was just any 3-4 star hotel room. Clean, well-structured, the room was very comfortable and spacious. The lobby is not great, but good enough for the main purposes. Staff is very kind and willing to help.


I Liked the location and the facilities. However the staff is very rude. The Indian girl in the lobby is extreme unpolited . I aked for directions and informations and she alway replied like " you have to ask on the street" or " I don't know ". The problem is that she did that without even looking at me, more worried in update her Facebook. That is not the kind of attitude we expect from a hostel.


Excellent facilities including an amazing bathroom and a delicious breakfast. Comfortable rooms, not too loud at night. Secure lockers in bedrooms for storage. Perfect location for gallery hopping - Van Gogh just over the road, Rijksmuseum just over the road. Easily accessible by tram from the city centre. Staff on reception came across a little rude at times - wasn't sure whether it was a language barrier or not!


Nice hostel in the centre of the museum district and near a lot of good stores. Staff were friendly and the rooms were nice however there should have been a better atmosphere and more facilities. Bathroom was clean and beds were comfortable. Doing a good thing when it comes to appealing to students.
