More of a hotel than hostel however the stay was fantastic and staff very helpful. Very clean, modern and urban. You will see that some of the reviews rate the location as poor to good. If you want to be in the main central district of Amsterdam then this is not the place for you. For us the location was great. Very close to the airport by train and a quick and easy trip in the city by bus or tram. Overall the transportation daily passes were very affordable. One con: Wifi sucked in our room.

Nice location, very quiet. Far from the city centre but its just a 5 minute train away. Train travel very frequently to sloterdijk so its not a problem

Close to the airport and great staff. Clean and very decent rooms. I would take a train from the airport instead of a taxi, as the fares were very expensive considering it is less than 15minutes to get there. The train/tram station is so close to the hostel so it makes sense. I took a taxi as I arrived at 10:30 pm after a long flight and wanted the quickest way to get to bed.

Amsterdam is so expensive on weekends, so I felt this hostel was a bit overpriced and they should at least offer breakfast for the pricing, but was clean and very close to public transport. Can't complain for the cleanliness or the facilities, all very excellent but being a big place it felt a bit institutional, more like a hotel than a hostel. The 7 bed dorm had a strange bed arrangement, 2 bunks, 1 single, and two singles which are placed next to each other like a double. In a mixed dorm!

Great place! Although it's not at the center of the town, it's next to the train station, Amsterdam Sloterdijk, which is 5 mins away from Amsterdam Centraal!

The hotel is modern and clean, the breakfast is great. Only annoying thing is that you have to get on public transport to get into the city which is ridiculously overpriced

This place is one of the nicest hostels I've stayed at. Top notch facilities, friendly staff, and a decently priced bar/restaurant. The only downfall is that it isn't in the city center, however it is located next to a major train station which makes commuting fast and easy!

The best hostel i stayed in my entire trip! The only point that could better is the location! Its kinda far away from the center of amasterdam! However, its lovated just by a big train station, so its easy to move around! The infra structure is the best ever! Huge rooms, comfortable beds and a grat value for the quality!

This hostel is more like a hotel! It's perfect in every way... The location is great as you only need to pop on a train (which is next door) and 4 minutes later your at Amsterdam central. Staff were up beat and positive. Only thing is I think Breakfast is way too expensive but I didn't complain cos there was so much variety and it is all-you-can-eat. But I don't think people eat that much in the mornings. Maybe make it a couple of euros cheaper. Other than that you can't knock this place AT ALL.

It was a little far away from down town, and scary at nights at least for me, a young female traveler.
