It was a very clean & safe place, the staff were helpful & welcoming. The hostel is in a prime location close to the center & I would recommend it to anyone thinking of staying in Amsterdam.

The location of the bulldog hotel amsterdam is very good. It's right at the heart of the city centre. The cafe is very good and the cannabis they serve is of high quality.

Basic aspects of the hostel were superb: good wifi, clean rooms, warm beds, good water pressure in the shower, etc. My only complaint is that the hostel isn't ideal for meeting people. Though there is a bar, it's not the type of common area that is good for meeting fellow travelers; it felt like any other bar. I would have come down there with a book or laptop, but the place was too smoky for that to be comfortable. This is Amsterdam, though, so a smoke filled bar is part of the experience.

Staff and location are the best aspects of this hostel for sure. The facilities for the price are a bit sub-par but still definitely a well-equipped hostel worth a stay in the heart of Amsterdam.

This is a great hostel, with amazing location. The staff was all very helpful and polite throughout the stay. It was nice that there was a bar located in the hostel since there are no other common areas. The rooms were decent. Nice locker space, a towel is included and the beds were pretty comfy. However, the bathrooms had no soap and the shower water leaked every where on the floor. This made the bathroom floor wet nearly the entire stay. strong smoke smell but it's Amsterdam so it's expected!

This hostel is pretty dope. Dispensary is next door so literally everything is within 50 ft from your bed. Your best bet is to go during the week where I believe it to be around 25 euros a day to stay. That's your best bet to get the most bang for your buck because they have free breakfast which if you haven't traveled to Amsterdam. Also, one of the only places you can eat, toke up, and grab a beer without leaving the hostel vicinity! Highly recommended!

The Bulldog is quite literally the heart of Amsterdam. The establishment is known for being The First Best & Biggest- which is undeniably true. The First Bulldog Coffeeshop extends down the very central and historic Oudezijds Voorburgwal canal to include The Bulldog Gottahaves, Mack Bulldog, The Bulldog Hotel & Lounge and Bulldog Coffeeshop. You can expect exceptional service on all levels from this well managed staff. Atmosphere is outstanding and inclusive with top notch security.

Great conditions of the rooms. The breakfast is excellent. I would not recommend it for people who are looking for a "party hostel" or interaction among the guests, but there's a bar on the first floor and it's opened to people who are not hosted there.

My friend and I stayed in a 8 bed mixed dorm. The location of this hostel is great. It's right in the center and close to everything. The hostel has a really cool bar/smoke area. We didn't meet many people since most people were in their own world haha but overall a great stay!

Great place to sleep, drink and smoke. Very functional. Nothing fancy. Breakfast was nice. Bread/buns deli meats and cheese. The bar downstairs if great for food, drinks and herbs. Location was good. It's a party place. Bring ear plugs.
