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.


Great Hostel, definitely going back here. The staff were friendly and helpful with explaining the spots to visit during your visit. The Hostel was a little hot, but thats cause it was the summer. The facilities are great, beds are comfortable, large locker storage. The location is prime.


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.


Great location & staff!


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


by far the worst hostel i have stayed in Europe after 4 months of travelling. rooms are tiny and gross the staff are a bit unusual and for a Saturday night I paid 100 euros. can't even say a good word about this place. this place is a joke


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 amazing guys. Thank you!
