The guys at the front desk were completely incapable of doing anything. He had no idea how to work anything and couldn't even give me a receipt. Room wasn't ready for hours past the check in. Rooms were insanely small with way too many people for way too much money. Shower was disgusting and overflowed within 30 seconds of water. There was wifi for every floor and not a single one worked for longer than a minute. The only good thing is it was close to everything.

dear guest; we respect all the reviews from our guests, however it has to be the truth. i checked you in, you came here 9:00 am in the morning, our check out time is before 11:00 am in the morning, and check in after 2:0pm in the afternoon. of course i wouldn't let you in, since the room was still occupied by previous guests. you stayed on the second floor, and we never had complaints from that floor since there was a router on the first floor. sorry for your "bad" experiences!


Disgusting bathroom. Stayed in a room for 8 and there only one person could stand up at a time there was so little space. Bathroom had no real shower an smelt like sulfuric acid. Not kidding.

Stayed here as a couple and thought it was really good. Booked as a hostel and got exactly what expected and more. This place is very under reviewed, down sides are one shower and toilet per floor but this was never a problem for us and the stair case is step but it's an old building and not many steps between floors so again not a problem. Quiet place and perfect for a stay for people that want somewhere to sleep in a nice clean room/facilties and comfy bed with great staff. Bargain too

Dear Jason Graves; thank you so much for your fair review. we appreciate your understanding, wish to see you again in our hostel. best


Very close to Dam square. I found the hostel clean. There isn't a real common area and I haven't seen the outdoor terrace mentioned. WiFi doesn't work inside the rooms at the 4th floor, just in the corridor.


Per verdieping is er slechts 1 douche en 1 toilet (veel te weinig voor het aantal kamers!). Verder was het toilet vies en vuil. De muren en plafonds zijn flinterdun met als gevolg dat onze nachtrust vaak verstoord werd door andere groepjes. Het hostel was wel erg goed gelegen.

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!
