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.

Good location, just opposite to Van Gogh Museum, near tram route 2 & 5 stop so easy access to Dam Square and Central Station. You can also find bus stop of route 197 for the airport nearby. Room is little bit small but clean and tidy. Breakfast is average. Staff is friendly and helpful.

If you like museums, the location doesn't get any better. Literally across the street from the Van Gogh museum, and the Rijksmuseum is nearby as well. If there is a weakness of the location, you have to walk several blocks for any kind of food place - still, not that far. Staff was nice and helpful. There is no locker, but there is a safety deposit box - it makes very loud beeps when you press the buttons, but, not a big deal. Bathrooms are great.

Hostel Van Gogh was of a decent standard. The room was pretty small but the bathroom was clean. It was located a bit out of the part of Amsterdam I like which was a hassle as we had to pay for trams throughout the day. One thing I can't fault was the breakfast which was nice. However we got asked three times whether our name was on the list. They could simplify that method

The only thing that I disliked was that my room was right next to a roof area where people would sit each night and socialize very loudly, making it a little hard to sleep. However, I really liked the location, my single private room, and the hostel overall!

Enjoyed my stay. Didn't have to make my own bed, it was very clean and had everything you would need including electronic safes in the room to store possessions. In terms of location, it's a picturesque thirty minute walk to the train station, but you're located right next to several tourist attractions and the area is very safe overall with excellent bars and restaurants and a supermarket located within minutes. There's a lovely bakery a block away if you don't want to pay for the breakfast.

Ótimo ambiente, próximo aos mais conhecidos museus de Amsterdam, excelente café da manhã, porém péssimo Wi-fi, funcionava quando queria, quase nunca... os funcionários da Recepção foram informados mais de uma vez e os problemas de conexão persistiram até o dia do meu check out. Bicicletas alugadas precisam de manutenção.

Bem localizado, sendo possível chegar em varios pontos de interesse a pé. Dois recepcionistas antipáticos, mas as atendentes mulheres era muito gentis. Não tinha bar no hotel, mas era possível trazer comidas e bebidas para consumir no local. O wi-fi funcionou mal durante toda a estadia.

Um dos atendentes era extremamente antipático, não fazia nenhuma questão de falar um inglês compreensível ou de te ajudar a resolver qualquer tipo de problema. Os quartos eram bons, o beliche era alto e silencioso, o colchão agradável e tinha toalhas limpas todos os dias. Quanto aos lockers, eram apenas pequenos cofres. Ressalva para os impostos que não estão incluídos no valor da diária e o café da manhã que vale a pena, mas que também não está incluído, no valor de E$ 5,00.

Posizione eccellente, personale gentile, colazione abbondante. Unica nota stonata la pulizia, andrebbe migliorata.

Great location and great facilities. I do not expect Hostels to be a quiet place - but I do expect that a level of consideration of the other people staying in the Hostel. For 2 nights in a row, the young kids (teenagers?) staying in adjacent rooms to the dorm I was in were extremely noisy way past midnight.. This should not be acceptable ...and should be managed by the Hostel. Otherwise a good place as far as hostels go ;-)

Generally speaking, staffs were friendly. However, one of staffs, who might be Chinese, was lack of patience to explain our payment detail since we did not notice that we need to pay 5.5% tax additionally. It was our fault to being aware of additional tax. But that staff's attitude was totally not good.

It´s a pity that a place where you can hide and locked your stuff is so small.
