Sweet hostel with really friendly staff. Very social smoking room makes it easy to meet new people and the close location to Leidseplein makes it easy to go out and get back home in the early hours. Would defiantly recommend.

It was a great location, near central station and really close to the Anne Frank house! I don't know if it was worth as much as I paid, but it was safe and in a great location!

It was a bit difficult to find. It could be nice with a larger sign outside on the street. There where no plugs in the room, so I couldn't charge my phone during the night. Had to charge it in the reception the day after.

Decent hostel, loved the smoking room even if its a bit musty in there. Internet speeds were good everywhere inside the hostel which is always nice. Would have liked a more secure seeming locker, but the big locker was nice.

I didn't quite like this hostel. I thought it was pretty dirty and too small. Location is good if you like walking and they also rent bikes if you like one. Room is too small and you barely have room for your stuff. The only thing that I actually liked is that wifi worked pretty good in the room. I've stayed in better hostels for the same price, I wouldn't go back.

If you want to pay with card, you had to pay 5% more. worst, we had to pay again the 10% that we payed first on the reservation. cat's mess in a chair in the same room you take breakfast. no recomended!

Everything was nice. Within walking distance of most things in the city and close to tram stop. Not worth the weekend rates though we didn't think.

Real cool hostel. Good vibes with Clean/comfy beds and a chill smoke lounge that had a sick view. The staff is great! They'll answer all your questions from what coffee shop to hit up or where to do laundry. The receptionist even helped us plan our trip Istanbul! I highly recommend this place. Cheers

Would not stay again, bit dirty and expensive for what it is. Sucks staying on the top floor (6 floors up with stairs that are more like a ladder with backpacks sucked) Staff were very friendly and helpful!

Very secure hostel, friendly staff and pretty clean. Bathrooms could do with being observed more.

Great location and very nice staff. But if you don't smoke you don't have a nice common area, only some tables with chairs. On the other hand, the smoking room has sofa, a nice view from the front window and TV... not fair.

Value for money because of the awesome location. Hostel was clean but dingy-needs some paint and new tiles on the floor-staff meant business, they weren't looking to accommodate you. There is a common area where you can smoke so that was cool. Not a good atmosphere to meet people. Basically the best deal for the location if you are with a group don't stay here if you are alone. It's just a bed to sleep in. They have lockers but you have to buy a lock

The hostel is in an old building, so it's got issues related to that. The stairs up to the reception area are nearly vertical. I can't imagine climbing those drunk! The floors smell like mould, obviously there is water damage from the showers, which are small. The rooms look old, with an unpleasant yellow paint on the walls. But, for value and a bed, it's location is great and the reception staff are very friendly and helpful. This hostel is perfect for young guys who came to Amsterdam to party.

They have a card payment policy which is very abusive, you have to pay 5,5% more than the total amount if you want to proceed with it. Why they do this and not the other hostels.. simply cheating... The Spanish staff is really nice.

Dear Adrian Thank you for staying. This 5,5% is CITY TAX and is not included in the price. This is also written in our HOSTEL CONDITIONS before you book it. Regards IBH

Generally I was very happy with my stay at this hostel. The toilet and bathroom facilities were very clean (which is always a big plus) and the dormitory was adequately spacious. The common room (or smoking room) was a nice place to hang-out and I got the impression that a lot of the guests were seasoned backpackers rather than loud, uncultured kids. For the price, this place was excellent value and I would happily stay here again.

My room wasn't very clean and the hostel seems a bit cramped. The lighting in the bedrooms is poor.
