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.

I persinally found the atmosphere here to be slightly impersonal since it was such a big hostel, but the staff were friendly and helpful and there were very complete and functional facilities.

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.

Great location! Close to the museums and nightlife scene outside of the red light district, but close enough to the red light if you fancy a short walk. Bar was a good place to me folks. The one down side was the at time large amount of children and lack of plugs. Still, the location near Vondel park is the best attribute.

Security: My lock had trouble fitting on your lockers due to their construction. Location: Stellar. Staff: Bar staff was inattentive and somewhat rude. Atmosphere: No complaints. Cleanliness: Sheet service / packaging was great. Value: Loved the included breakfast. Facilities: The WiFi's limited availability and incredibly slow speed created some frustration and timing issues for me. Including soap in bathroom areas would have been nice.

Very nice to hear birds singing outside the window rather than street noise! Great location, good hostel and nice breakfast. WiFi only in the reception area. Few electrical outlets in the room.

In a great location. We had a 2 person twin bunds and bathroom. It was very clean, breakfast was basic but nutritional and good. Lockers available and staff friendly. I was myself female 49 and daughter 22 travelling. I felt very safe.

Breakfast wad the best out of any hostel/hotel I've stayed at in Europe, and it was free! The location is good, much quieter than other parts of town and not a lot of people just looking to get high in Amsterdam. I would definitely stay here again. Staff is a little snarky, but not a big deal.

Great hostel but people didn't seem to mix much or make friends amongst each other, low on the community aspect!
