I loved staying here, not being in the middle of everything but definitely close enough, especially with the rental bikes! Thanks a ton.

Awesome location in Leidsplein, right near all the happening nightlife spots and near a bunch of good coffee shops, restaurants, and parks etc. Staff was very informative and friendly, atmosphere was very laid back and very cool. Lots of people hanging out and a good place to make like minded traveler friends. Smoking lounge overlooking the canal was also a huge plus! Only complaint was the lack of hot water in all of the sinks. Made shaving/washing my face and such a miserable chore.

Good points: sociable hostel, staff are nice, good location Bad points: really narrow, long flight of stairs, door bang loudly when closed, cleaner opened out door without knocking

Really nice and cosy place, perfect if you are travelling alone! Unfortunately there is no kitchen to cook your own meal, but the staff wants to help you to warm up your meal in the microwave and store your food in the fridge. Nice and warm showers, could be cleaned more often but reasonable. Perfect situated in the city and easy to reach by public transport!

Clean,safe but pretty boring...It's an Hotel with no atmosphere. But for the price it's nice, you have a bathroom and a shower in the room. If you want some sleep and a quiet atmosphere this place is for you !

It was generally a good stay. The place was nice and there's a good common room. It's very centrally located and easy to find.

A nice hostel, with friendly and informative staff. However we disliked the 'no food in rooms' policy, I understand that the hostel is just trying to maximise profits but they should make this policy clearer when booking. Plus the directions on the website from Amsterdam Centraal to the hostel were useless and we weren’t fans of the smoking room which was a real shame when I have visited Amsterdam previously the Hostel smoking room can really maximise your stay, however this one was grotty and dull.

The staff was not helpful or friendly at all. The building had a bad smell, the rooms were very small. Only 1 shower for one floor and two toilets. Our sheets were dirty. A lot of noise from the rooms around us. There was no kitchen or something, you had to ask the staff to put something in the refrigerator or to warm something up.

Dear Evelien Thank you for staying with us i was scared when i see this revieuw. We have every where in the building ambi pure this is the best cleaning spray that you can buy and only HOTEL'HAVE this normally. We have not 1 shower for whol floor but 3. I dont think you look good. We help you for you food there is no kitchen but we give you plates knife's and vork and also we wash it for you. We think like this you are on holiday and have better things to do than cleaning.

Spent the whole stay covered in what we hoped were mosquito bites,

Not the hostel for socialising, unless your version of socialising involves smoking weed. But as a cheap bed in the centre of Amsterdam I can't complain.

Great place in a pinch. Better for a younger crowd. Mostly young dudes smoking pot in the smoking lounge and for smokers they were not too outgoing but that doesn't reflect on the Hostel.

We had a comfortable stay here as we were a group of three in a four person room (we had booked a 6 person room). The wifi wasn't working above the first floor.

Despite specifying we were arriving early we had to wait outside the hostel for hours until it opened at nine. A bad start and it didn't get much better.

Steep stairs (but that's everywhere in Amsterdam)... Common room (smoking) was sometimes very busy but we could always find a seat :) and pretty good Internet, had issues for a day (two tops) but it actually works in the rooms too. Perfect location! Quiet, beautiful street but only a block away from the action.
