Ridiculous to have to pay to use computers, and need more toilets/showers/outlets in room. Not a good atmosphere because so many kids and families.

breakfast is delicate, room is nice, 7 minutes walk to tram station, about half an hour walk to central train station


71%

No wifi in the rooms. They also give you the absolute minimum so you have to pay for towels, no soap in the rooms in the bathroom, no outlets near beds etc.

The hostel was not very well signposted, we had a map so we managed to find our way there eventually!

Great location next to the park. Staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Would have been better with a kitchen and better bathroom facilities in the rooms. The breakfast is great :-)

The hostel was in a good area of the city, and easy to get to from the airport via bus. it was close to the bars and night life and about a 20 min walk from the red light district. The hostel was pretty big and the lobby and walking tour were great ways to meet people. But there was no wifi in the rooms, nor were there any outlets, except for 1 in the bathroom, which was very annoying since I could not charge my phone overnight. The beds were ok.

The only problem I had was with the internet, because you can only access it from the lobby (which is always crowded) and its speed is not so good. On the other hand, the check-in was pretty easy, the staff is really helpful, they packed us breakfast for our last day as we would leave early, the hostel was clean and it's also close to the important points of the city without being in a very crowded place. I'd definitely recommend to stay there, especially if you're traveling with other people.

Managed by friendly and welcoming staff, this hostel is a very nice and safe place to stay in a convenient and restful location overlooking leafy Vondelpark. Multiple services offered onsite (ticket/tour reservations, bike rentals, post box, bar, lobby wi-fi). Easily accessible via public transit from Centraal Station (well-posted directions to hostel - look up!). A bit pricey for basic accommodations but very clean private rooms and a decent breakfast make it a good choice in Amsterdam!

Not many complaints but this is more of a cheap hotel than a hostel. If you want good facilities for a reasonable price (by Amsterdam standards - i.e. pretty expensive) then this is a good place but if you want a good hostel environment (meeting other travellers, cosy lounge etc) then this is not the place.

The best hostel I ever been, staff are very good, very clean rooms and very good breakfast, my only issue is that is far from centrum, but as Amsterdam is very small, you can take the tram or just walk, or more dutch way, bike, I'm definitely returning to this hostel in my next visit in Amsterdam :)

Not the most centrally located hostel but being right next to Vondelpark has its perks. Overall a pretty solid hostel.

The location is phenomenal and it's a great spot to navigate towards as home base. Everything was great other than the wifi only being in the common area. The breakfast was a tad bland but the location alone makes it.

Great hostel, no complaints, except that i think there should be individual outlets in the beds. Best breakfast from the hostels i've visited.
