Great atmosphere in the perfect location, comfy beds, and nice staff. However, if you're looking for something where you can relax and not have roommates coming in and out at odd hours, look elsewhere. The Bulldog attracts a younger crowd of people who prefer to stay out late and party. If that's your idea of a good time (which, let's face it, is perfect for this section of Amsterdam) then you'll love it. If not, bring some earplugs or book elsewhere.

The location was AMAZING. It was so close to the red light district but still in a very beautiful area on the canals. We were able to walk everywhere which was super convenient. The shower and bathrooms were not super clean, the facilities were a bit dated, and people weren't super social but overall it was good.

Located right in the middle of the city (less than 5 mins walk to the National Monument) and next to the famous red light district of amsterdam! Stayed in a 12 bed room with only 1 toilet and 1 shower so you might have to wait for your turn. There is no common area for us to meet other travelers except the coffeeshop downstairs. Price is slightly on the high side but i would stay there again for the location.

The Bulldog is really safe and has a pretty good free breakfast. The showers are a bit gross, but they have phenomenal security. Not a place you'd like if you're not smoking weed though. Right in the middle of everything. The atmosphere is nice though and it's easy to get to know other travelers.

Imo it is more of a hotel with a bar downstairs rooms are cramped and the was room got really messy but else it is in a really good location so if you want to purely go out thus is the place for you. Hostel it self has sub par atmosphere.

Pretty good location if you are with a bunch of young teens like us. It also had a pretty sweet bar and coffeeshop right attached to the place. But if you can't deal with smoke then I wouldn't suggest it.

The bulldog was okay. Our first day there was a bad experience because one of the bar staff was very rude to us and the food wasn't very good and not worth he money. It's not your typical hostel. The rooms were okay but extremely hot and with the windows open it was too noisy. Each room has a bathroom and shower. The shower often went cold. The bar area was not a great environment to meet people because it's so dark and not very open feel to it. Location and security were good.

BEST LOCATION EVER. right in the middle of the action i had an 8 bed female dorm and was facing the canal it was incredible. The staff was quite nice a little condescending sometimes but very helpful. room was very spacious and clean. the bar downstairs was great and had a fantastic staff. Super secure felt very safe. THEY HAD AN ELEVATOR WHICH WAS A HUGE PLUS. would 100% recommend.
