More like a hotel than a hostel. Toilets, staff, rooms, wifi all great! Location ok. We had an issue with bookings as we booked another night while staying there and were told there was only a private room available but would allow us to book at dorm price. But when we came back to our room there was a random man was in our room. The man eventually sorted it out and with reception and didn't come back. Still, we had personal items lying around that would have been put away had we known.
I really enjoyed staying here. It is HUGE, but not a bad thing in this case (usually I dislike huge hostels). They were friendly, the location is fine, it is clean, and everybody in my room was very friendly. We made friends in the one night I was there.
facility was nice and clean. but washing machine was out of order and i cant use it for 3days. everything except that was nice.
Second time staying here, had a great time will almost definitely be using this hotel/hostel again.
The most comfortable I've ever stayed.

Aside from the breakfast a by on the higher end pricing (although it is all-you-can-eat style), very nice hostel overall. Kind and professional staff, location allows access to most major attractions within 15-25 minutes walking distance and near the main square (public transports). Very good experience during my stay!
It's a brilliant hostel! There was a slight mix up with the rooms, however the helpful an efficient staff sorted it straight away! All the staff are friendly and te location has good links into the centre. It was a great place to meet people and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Great facilities. Good room layout (dorm). NOT in the heart of Amsterdam, which i found great because it gives you air and space to breathe, sit back and relax. Which is precisely what you need. Only down side is the single washing machine in building
Really lovely room, like staying in a hotel, slightly out of city centre
I was pleasantly surprised to find the hostel to be more of a hotel. Staff was very helpful with all our questions, and the coupons in the front for tours and museums came in handy. The rooms were very nice and clean, but confusing that we booked a 5 bed mixed room but were placed in a 3 bed mixed room. Either way it worked out and was a great stay.
Second time staying here, first was on a double room, this time a private single . Room was very clean, will definitely stay again next time I visit amsterdam
Very nice, but also very expensive. Great if you need to be near the airport, but not so good if you want to visit the city center.
Great hostel clean, friendly and positioned next to the metro station on stop away from Amsterdam Central.
I booked a 5 bed dorm but they put me in a 7 bed room instead without offering me a refund, they only changed it to a 4 bed room when I insisted. Room itself was nice, a bit small but the facilities were modern and clean. Location is not very good, outside the centre with pretty much nothing around apart from office buildings. Trains to the central station however run regularly. For that location I found it a bit too expensive (compared to hostels in the centre).
This is about a 15 min bus ride from the Amsterdam central but overall worth the stay. The space was great and clean. The only downfall is that this is actually a hotel that offers "shared" rooms. So it is not an average hostel atmosphere, more of a hotel as there are families EVERYWHERE
This time I share a room with 3 more guys and it was very comfortable and clean. Facilities are fantastic but the washing machine and drier were broken. Only one machine for the whole hotel, guess people never wash anything. I think the location is not bad afterall, the station is well served by buses, tram, subway and sprinter train. It is also closer to Rotterdam.
Very nice clean room with comfortable bed and great shower. Wifi was poor and pool table was always being used for food!
Best staff ever! Very helpful, friendly, patient, easy to talk to, especially Tetske, Patrick and Kelly. The dorm I booked was full when I arrived, so I was automatically upgraded to a private room with ensuite bathroom at no extra charge - it was as good as a hotel room. Only complaint was weak wifi on 6th floor so I had to go down to the common room. Was pretty easy to catch the train there, but not convenient for going out late in the city.
this hostel was a bit out from the centre of the city. it's one train stop away from amsterdam centraal station- either a 15 minute bus ride away or a 5 minute train ride away. but other than that it's a great place to stay- it was pretty much a hostel with hotel features. great bathroom/shower, comfy beds, clean towels and sheets. great value for money!
More a hotel with shared rooms than a hostel! No complaints with the staff, room or cleanliness. Location maybe a downside as you have to get a train into Central Amsterdam. Only minor complaint, breakfast charged at extra €7.90 each, this seemed a bit steep given the price of the room. Overall great place to stay.
