Great Hostel to meet people and explore Amsterdam!

Close to train station, and just a street away from the red light district. The smell of herbal mix (weeds I guess) lingered along the street, but the bars are crowded with people. The dormitory I stayed at for three nights was quiet and clean (though I know it really depends on what kind of people you meet, all about luck!). Breakfast included, they have a super cool toasters and clips for you to make your own cheese and ham sandwich. No refrigerator nor any common area.

SO AWESOME!!! Great value for the money! Location is unbeatable! 5 minutes from Central Station and 1 minute from the Red Light District. Went to Amsterdam with no expectations and they helped us so much! Loved our stay, would go back ASAP!

It is a nice place if all you want to do is party and get high for a couple of days, which I think thats amsterdam basically.

Excellent stay, great location.

Unfortunately the company we had in the room was not great. People that had left beer everywhere spilled all over the floor when we first arrived. They also kept us up all night. Obviously, this sometimes happens but it is not something you want to have to deal with

I guess the Hostel can be considered a good place for cannabis lovers but it's definitely not open to all other types of travellers. The room was not exactly clean and neither was the bathroom. The lobby is inside the coffee shop. There's no quiet place where to rest and read or listen to some music far from smoke. The quality of the breakfast was extremely low. Definitely not Worth the 28 euros I have paid and below the standard you expect. Very disappointing!

This hostel provide all the essentials, including a great breakfast , but the is no kitchen for use by guests. Guests are not allowed to bring food on the which is a bit annoying , but aside from that it is OK. The showers were good, but missing screens so everything in the gets wet if you shower. The atmosphere is good but it is a bit commercial. It is a pretty good hostel to stay.
