Stairs were a nightmare and room Was too small but it was still a good place.


This is the first time I stayed in hostel! After staying here! I would defiantly do it again! The only issue was sharing toilet and bathroom with everyone else! (Males pee around toilet) 🙈 but what else do you expect :) I felt safe and secure with the 24hour security! Very close to all cafes/dam square etc... I'd defiantly stay here again!

Small rooms, many stairs. Extremely good location, worth the money.


i reserved to be in the same dorm as my friends and even I received a confirmation it didn't work. Don't expect too much but the beds are really comfortable


Great hostel if you are looking for a cheap place to stay right in the centre of Amsterdam. Hostel is clean and although the rooms are very small they keep them tidy and supply lockers. I would very much recommend this to any students as the staff are helpful and allow you to sit in the cafe area and help you with any questions as well as being extremely close to the main attractions, pubs and clubs!

Mevlana is very near to Amsterdam Central railways station and Dam square. Many tourist attractions are just walk away. I would like to stay here again.


Great location, little rooms but for the money I paid it was ok... I didnt like that they allow people to eat on the room... the smell was horrible because a guy was eating inside the room the whole day.. Besides that everything was perfect

Very good value for money if you are on a budget. We stayed in a four bed dorm which was extremely clean and comfortable. Luckily, we were right next to the shower and toilet facilities which were also very modern and clean. The staff were super friendly and helpful, and happy to store our luggage free of charge after we had checked out before our train. The location was also great, around a 10minute walk from the train station and in close proximity to lots of restaurants and bars.

The Hotel is in the city centre, behind Dam Square, pubs & restaurants everywhere.Beds and rooms where clean,but we changed 3rooms in 3days.The first room was at the top of the building, 6bed dorm,bathroom in the room and lockers.Then they switched us to another 6bed dorm.The second room was smaller, no lockers and the guys in there were still sleeping at 6pm,beers everywhe,smell. So we decided to pay more and switch to a 4beddorm with lockers, shared bathroom.The staff was very nice and helpful
