This is a great hostel. Single room was the best ever, bar not pretty but the beer, music and staff excellent. My favourite hostel in Europe - and I was only there one night!

Really great hostel, was nice to get away from the more rough and ready type of hostel. It's close enough to use the tram daily (roughly €5 day ticket) or get a taxi from Dam square (€9)

Hostel muito bom, tranquilo, bem localizado perto do museu Van Gogh. O atendimento do STAFF é um pouco frio, mas é bom. Limpeza OK. Enfim, não tenho o que reclamar. Parabéns ao Hostel Van Gogh.

Very nice hostel in good walking-distance to most of the city-attractions. Nice and friendly English speaking staff and a clean hostel. Big breakfast buffet for 5 Euros. Computers with internet, fridge and coffemachine for use.

It's convenient to take the tram to the hotel, but not quite close to the major sightseeing spots. Pay attention that it's a hotel, hostel is not its major living. So they are not quite experienced in catering backpackers. The breakfast is good but kind of expensive. Anyway, it can be a choice if you love Van Gogh a lot:)

En general es una excelente opción para alojarse en una ciudad tan maravillosa, las habitaciones cómodas y limpias, el desayuno se lleva un 10, mi única mala experiencia fue con uno de los chicos de la recepción que fue un poco grosero al querer ampliar la reserva, aparte de eso Es un excelente hostel

Bathrooms were hotel standard, beds got made most days, really clean standard all over the building. Not much atmosphere but convenient location! (Can walk to the city centre, lots of shops near, tram stop right outside)

Decent ordinary hostel. Staff was good, a few rude ones or at least seemed that way. The breakfast advertised eggs and bacon, Prepaid for this for both days, niether day had eggs, 1 day had bacon. Dont be fooled. Rooms clean with good showers. Beds super close together, i was 3 inches from the guy next to me. Atmosphere here sucks if your looking for that. On my backpacking tour this is the worst of all the hostels I stayed. Wasn't even cheap. A good quiet location though. I would go elsewhere

Me encanto el hostel , la habitacion que me toco re limpia , muy espaciosa comoda, , me senti seguro de dejar objetos valiosos en la caja fuerte. El desayuno hay que pagarlo aparte , pero bien completo! Excepto un señor de recepcion , que respondia de manera poco amable a las conslutas, el personal lo hace muy bien , muy amables , una de las chicas me ayudo con un tema de la luz de mi habitacion , super atenta! Exelente!

Its a very good hostel! Its pretty much like a hotel. Everything there was nice and the staff were very helpful. Its located in a musume area,so you can find many museums nearby. Also you can take the tram to anywhere,which is very convenient.(Buy a day ticket,it helps save quite a lot of money)

This hostel was in a great location (in my opinion). Close enough walking distance to busses/trams to and from the airport or train station (not central station, but I didn't arrive or leave from there). Staff was very friendly and helpful. Didn't have a bar to socialize ad or kitchen to use (microwave though). Other than that the room was very clean and comfortable. Shower/bathroom was awesome and clean. Close to less touristy things which made everything cheaper. Overall fantastic place!

A little far frim the main drag and no lockers in the rooms but overall the hostel is pretty standard. Nice facilities, decent rooms, welcoming staff. Would recommend.

Nice hostel in a fantastic location. Modern bed- and bathrooms, though our bathroom never seemed to be properly cleaned- especially irratating as the shower always flooded the bathroom floor. I was disappointed that guests weren't allowed to access the kitchen, but the staff were generally polite and helpful, with the exception of the male manager at reception, who was really rude.

The Hostel Van Gogh was not bad for a weekend stay. It's clean, safe and in a really good location. However, this is not the place to stay if you're looking to meet other people or hang out with other travelers. The atmosphere was pretty much non-existent, which was unfortunate for my friend and me being young travelers hoping to meet others. As long as you're okay with it knowing that, it's a perfectly fine place to stay.

A great hostel to stay at during a weekend in Amsterdam. The place is calm and is located in a nice neighbourhood close to alot of museums and stuff. The room was like nice and modern but could used a bit more cleaning. Our balcony was filled with old stuff, for instance two big construction cones, a pair of old shoes and some random garbage. But all in all, a hostel that I think gives you value for the money!

Lo mejor, la ubicación. Está céntrico y a la vez es tranquilo y no hay ruido a la noche.
