Awesome hostel to go with your friend, good group to enjoy the best think's in amsterdam location is perfect, clean, and the atmosphere is good


Once we found the hostel, I felt it was a good location, about a five minute from the main drag of Amsterdam City, where you can pick up several different tour buses and canal tours. Also about five minutes from the bus center where the bus from Eindhoven Airport drops off and picks up, if you're taking Ryan Air. I recommend bringing shower shoes, as well as a small mirror for girls doing makeup -- the bathroom was poorly lit and small, so it crowded easily. Smoke room/bar weren't much fun.


Perfectly located within a few minutes of Amsterdams better known amenities and under 5 minutes from the train station this hostel is perfect for those looking for a chilled out cheap break in dam. The hostel is also a sports bar so was always packed for footy and darts, it has a smoking room with screens for the sports and pool tables. The room was basic but clean, the beds comfy and bathroom modern and working. It's good value fore money and now booking for a third stay. Smokers haven!

dirty. unfriendly staff.


Besides the fact that the room I had was a little dungeon like and some of the lockers were broken, it wasn't that bad. But the people working the front desk were by the far the most inhospitable and unhelpful people I have ever encountered. I needed a cab at a four o clock in the morning and they refused to let me use their phone for two seconds. Never again.

This hostel is located centrally in Amsterdam basically in the district. The staff can be cold at times, the facilities are basic but sufficient. All in all, not a bad place to stay. Would stay again.


Nothing special to add
