Super clean hostel. More like a hotel in terms of cleanliness. Good facilities and friendly staff. Location is a little outside the city but bus fare is cheap and the bus is only a 20 min ride into the center of Amsterdam. Would likely stay there again.
Comfortable room, just a bit dusty (the shelves). but the bathroom was SUPER clean! I enjoyed my stay. Would definitely stay again.
This hostel was clean, the staff were excellent and the facilities were great. The two things that are not ideal about this hostel is the atmosphere and the location. The atmosphere is not great because it is set up much like a hotel. The common room is quite often full of high school students on school trips. The location isn't terrible, but it is one stop on the train from the central area of Amsterdam, which isn't bad on time, but can affect the pocket book.
Great hostel, more like a hotel! Lovely rooms. There's is also an ensuite in the rooms which is great for a back packers.
The beds were comfortable. There was a small table in the room which was nice. It was like a hotel room just with roommates and smaller beds. Common area was very busy with lots of people. Right next to the Metro which was great. Also the rooms were quiet! Would be nice if bottom bunks had curtains.
We stayed in this hostel for one night in Amsterdam & it was perfect for a one night stay. We then moved to a hostel better located. Although this hotel is only one stop on the train to the main centre, the area its in is full of hotels and nothing else which gives for a strange atmosphere. We originally booked a 8 bed mixed dorm and were upgraded to a 4 bed private dorm which was amazing! The hotel was super clean and staff very friendly, we had a lovely stay!!
The room was great - very clean, enough space, USB outlet and light for each bed. Staff was friendly and helpful. Having to take the train into the city center was a bit of a pain (I believe it was 2.20 euros each way, so I didn't want to ever come back and go out again in the middle of the day). Biggest issue was that there's only one washer and dryer, and I had to wait around for several hours to use it.

More hotel than hostel. Kind of a cold vibe. Staff really isn't helpful. The rooms are big and clean so that's the most important thing. Really close to the Center and airport by train. All in all a decent place to sleep. Don't waste your money on the breakfast.
Awesome location, quick train ride to Amsterdam Centraal. Pretty good bang for your buck.
Great hostel - definitely more of a hotel feel apart from the fact it's dorm bedrooms. Thought the location was great - right next to train station and only a 7 min ride to central station or 20 min tram to vondelpark. Rooms are a bit small for having 4 beds squeezed in but very clean and well looked after with great facilities. Would recommend
Super clean and a nice surprise to have such a quality bed and shower after a few weeks of travelling, it's almost a mix between a hostel and a hotel with a room of strangers. Very big, a maze of corridors, but as a solo traveller I found it easy enough to meet others if I wanted to. A little out of Amsterdam but right next to the train station and a 10 minute trip to Centraal. Starbucks and other food places at the station.
Great stay here! Staff were great with any queries or requests, so close to the train station and only one stop away from central! We were upgraded to a triple room rather than a seven bed dorm which was such a great bonus, room cleaned everyday! Would recommend
Very well run hostel with good atmosphare. Rooms are top of the notch as for hostel.
One thing not happy with was supposed to be in dormitory with 7 beds, split into two rooms, one was very nice the other was a bit cramped.

Near the bus station that goes to/from other cities. Good facilities and helpful staff. Cool bike rentals and they offer public transport passes for a good price.
Just stay here for one night, it's good hostel very clean, love the shower XD the shower head is amazing! But it there's a shelf inside the shower area that better. And also the location is alright not in central need to take train/metro to central but just one stop so it's ok! i actually have a single bed in the 7 mix dorm room I sleep super well.
The place is connected with Sloterdijk station. So there are many ways to get to the main sites, nothing in walking distance though. You can also catch the direct train into Schipol Airport from here. I think the place will grow, it is very clean. Everyone had on uniforms so it was like a franchise. Everything else was great.
Really brilliant!! So glad we booked this hostel - rooms surpassed expectations!

Highly recommend this hostel! Only a 5 minute train ride to the city centre and the hostel is right next to the train station! Very clean, staff are great and helpful! Nothing bad about this place, I recommend you stay here.
Near absolutely nothing. You have to take the train into town and the train stops running at midnight so you have to pay for a cab. Cabs are very expensive. Staff was great, and it was clean and modern. I would recommend staying closer to town if you want to explore the city at night.
