This hostel was a great find and centrally located in the red light district. It's walking distance from the train station and close to lots of cafés and bars. There was a small bathroom for every 10-bed room, but that didn't pose an issue. There is no kitchen, but there's a bar downstairs. It's not a hotel, that's for sure, but it fulfills basic needs. Would stay again.

Not what I expected. Great location, and it was nice to have the bar apart of the hostel. No value for your money.


Great location! Secure and clean place... A rather small bathroom with no shower curtain,but it was enough for us to have best quality time in Amsterdam!!!


On arrival the staff were very rude and unhelpful. The showers did not work despite reporting the problem to reception. The bar downstairs was dark and dirty which made sitting there uncomfortable. No wifi in the bedrooms. Overall far too expensive for what you get. The only good thing about this hostel is the location however I am sure there are better hostels in the same area which aren't such a rip off.

Fantastic location, good price and very clean. The showers are rubbish though and not many of them, lets it down a little. Also some sort of area with a fridge or something would have been good. Overall excellent though, thanks!


Main thing is the pictures on the site are not as they seem!!! This hostel offers the bare minimum for what you are paying for which isn't bad. Just don't have high expectations. There is a bar on the ground level and a pool table but not many people use it to meet other. Wifi is only offered on the ground level. Location is good since it is 7 minute walk to train station and end of the street of the red light district.
