I stayed in a 2 bed room and it was worth it for security and privacy. I am a Christian but if you aren't just take the hospitality with thankfulness! Free breakfast is great and it was walking distance from everything! It could have been cleaner but I didn't have any real problems! I would definitely recommend - and maybe chip out for a smaller room!

The hostel is very good located, the staff is very friendly. It's perfect of you are going with the idea of a calm and touristy plan. The hoste is warm and comfy.

Loved loved the people here. I love what they do there with the Bible studies and get-togethers. Please keep it up. We stayed here twice while in Amsterdam because of the people here. Thank you so much!

There is a kitchen, but "staff" won't let you use it, only they are allowed behind the bench. No cereal for brekky, only muesli and bread, they don't have a toaster. I was in a 4 bed female room and I had the whole room to myself the 4 nights I was there. Because the staff are volunteers, there isn't any accountability, but they were friendly.

This hostel was nice, clean, and with helpful, English-speaking staff, who even offered to hold onto your phone so it could charge securely at the front desk while you were out. 24/7 front desk was nice. I would not recommend this if you intend to be high off your face the entire weekend because there is a "don't be under the influence" policy, so just try to act normal if you come back high. The breakfast was delicious! I had the Museli with yogurt and really enjoyed it! My bed was very comfy.

One has to know that it's a "very christian" hostel, with free bibles available in all corners, and religious items displayed an all walls, and invitation to prayers everyday... Apart from than annoying "evangelical" aspect, it's very well located, and has great facilities (except a kitchen corner where one could prepare his own food...
