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

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.

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.

Generally very clean and comfortable. The rooms have plenty of space and air conditioning, as well as wi-fi. The staff is friendly. However, do not leave anything in your room during the day: we left our own towels there to dry; housekeeping took them and we never saw them again (the hotel offered us another pair though).

We booked a 7-bed room but when we arived there we had to stay in a 3-bed room and a 4-bed room. The security and the cleaningness were quite good while the atmosphere wasn't anything extraordinary. It's placed near the station sloterdijk, but you need to take a train to go to the city centre.

Great place to stay. Only 5 mins to central and 10 mins to schipol airport. Plenty of links to buses and trains you cant get lost. My only ossue was that we had a group of 6 one of my group had an emergency and had to arrive the next day we already had 6 keys, when the missing person from the group arrived he told them the room number and was given another key without asking for his ID to make sure this was the person that was one of the group. I had filled in everyones details during check in.

There are some staff who are really annoying and just joking each other when you need and wait for some help. but that is the only thing that is bad about this hostel, every other thing is perfect and make you want to you stay one more night.
