Hostel Van Gogh is a very nice and clean hostel in the museum district of Amsterdam. The staff are professional. The lounge is good, and the breakfast was adequate. Fridge, microwave, and kettle available only as kitchen facilities but other than that I loved my stay at the hostel. Within walking distance of a supermarket, longer to walk to the Red Light District but doable. Dorm rooms were comfortable, individual safes provided, and a nice bathroom.

Great hostel, definitely almost like a hotel! Very clean, rooms had wifi and a television. The location was great, near the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum but still within about a 30 minute walk to the center of the city and everything else. Met some incredible people and had a really nice stay! (note I stayed in the all female dorm)

I like staying at the Van Gogh and had a single room there. All fine, except that the mattress is so soft, I could easily have fallen out of bed had I made a wrong move in my sleep. Other than that, it's great and highly recommended!

We found that our room was nice yet lacked space for luggage leaving you no choice but to have it in the middle of the room, also under the beds was incredibly dusty, obviously hasn't been cleaned in months. Other than that it was a pleasant enough stay

Atmosphere was a bit quiet while I was there, but friendly enough. Everything else was great, staff were friendly and helpful, rooms in good condition. Not the comfiest bed in the world, but okay for 4 nights.

clean, safe and all facilities (heater, hairdryer, wifi etc) you could need. Would def recommend it. Location wise,a bit outside the central Dam, Jordaan and Red light districts, closer to the museums and fancy shops rather than the trendier club-bar scene. Even then, its max a 20 minute walk to any of these locations. Communal area not great and doesn't really foster much much banter. not exactly a party hostel but tI wanted somewhere quieter so ideal.

Dorms were nice but could prove a bit noisy at times. Place was clean and secure, staff were attentive and the breakfast was a good deal.

The bathroom in the dorm was really nice and great staff! :) Some room for improvement are the beds weren't all clearly lettered, so some beds had two letters, there was a thick layer of dust on the walls and some mold starting on the wall below the window.. Also, I let my towel on my bed so it didn't have to be washed, and it got washed anyways. Nice to have a clean towel, but I didn't leave it on the bathroom floor as it said to leave it on the floor to be washed.

One man working at the front was a little rude. But, the rooms and bathrooms were nice, but the bathroom would get soaked every time someone took a shower.
