Good place! Super chill crowd. Nice to have a smoking room in the building, with a TV. Rooms are decent, not too spacious, but fine. Decently clean. Good atmosphere. Would stay here again!
best cheap hostel around. smoking room was cool to hang out and make friends.giant lockers
Quick stop in the dam? Yeah, stay. It's nice enough andgthe smoking room is nice little bonus and good for meeting new people. Average. Can't complain but I wouldn't go shouting about it either.
Nice place if you want to come to Amsterdam and smoke weed. Not great if you're trying to meet people who aren't stoners though. Facilities were decent but being Amsterdam it's pretty expensive for what you get.
Good location right in the middle of town.
This hostel was dirty, smelly, and lacked any privacy whatsoever. There were a lack of bathrooms and showers and those provided were not very cleanly. The staff was kinda grumpy and immature, but they did provide anything necessary. There was no top sheet, only a blanket, and the space was particularly crammed. The people I met were nice, but I wouldn't stay again. And the cat tried to bite me...
Stayed 4 nights. Very good location. Drug friendly, very chilled atmosphere. Staff were all lovely. Needs more showers.
It is a very pleasant place to stay. The staff were all nice and helpful and it is in a vey good location, close enough to the main square to get there quickly but also far away enough to escape the noise. The only negative I have is that the facilities aren't as good as they appear to be in the photos, the bathrooms and toilets are extremely small and it was uncomfortable sleeping in the dorm rooms with no ac or even a small fan to help with the humidity/heat. Overall it was a good experience.
Average hostel, terrible night staff.

The staff was often missing from the front counter, or seemed confused as to how things were run. The door on our room closed slowly, and then suddenly slammed shut every time, waking everyone in the room up each time someone came in or out.
Great location, friendly staff and good facilities. Such a relaxing smoking area with a community spirit and a excellent view from the bay window.
Ok to stay! Just a bit of a track to get to central and very confusing with all the canals!
Awesome location. Shower didn't have a door or curtain, which was a bit weird
Not the worst place but there is much better in Amsterdam. I only booked here last minute because others were booked out. Rooms are tiny, no bar, not enough bathrooms. Location is sweet.
Fantastic hostel with awesome rates inbetween the museums and the red light district. Wish I had of been able to stay longer!
It was a quiet place to sleep a little small in the rooms and the bathroom light needs to stay on it is a little inoying to have it shut off every 10 seconds. Beds were comfy.
Not the best location but the smoking lounge was awesome and met a bunch of cool people. overall would definitely stay here again
All together, a decent value. It's clean, no major issues. The price is good as long as you aren't there Saturday night (best to avoid staying in AMS then). Two things that would improve the experience: more outlets and more legitimate common areas. There's the reception area and a smoking area, but neither work super well for simple mingling if you don't care for MJ. I wouldn't have a problem staying here again.
