Our 4 bed private room was relatively clean albeit small, and poorly lit with crumby wifi. The staff were pretty funny and nice on the rare occasion we interacted with them at the door however there wasn't much of an atmosphere owing to the lack of common areas (aside from the discounted pub downstairs). While our room smelt fine the rest of the hostel had a particular and quite strong smell, not necessarily bad but certainly not good. Good cheap crash pad, excellent location, nothing more.


On edge of red light district, only 5 min walk from train station and close to all main attractions. Although if you aren't into party atmosphere prob wouldn't stay here. Otherwise it is a comfortable hostel, good dorm with lockers and wifi. Above Irish pub (discounted drinks and food) but doesn't have kitchen or common room.


Staff with bad mood. Wifi doens't work on the first floor. Bedroon for 14 people and only 2 outlet, recharging the smartphone was impossible.


Let me begin with saying even with my astonishingly low standards with hostels, this hostel was astonishingly horrible. The bathroom my room shared a wall with was under construction and every morning around 7am the workers would come in and blaire techno music and use power tools. The one bathroom for the whole hostel was disturbingly dirty. For my fourteen person room there was 4 outlets which were almost always being used. Last, but not least, the whole hostel smelled very bad.


This hostel has great bunk beds their big and have good mattress'. Good lockers under beds too. Staff were helpful. One of the bathrooms was getting renovated so toilets and showers were so busy and not the cleanest. Its in a great location, and pub next door does cheap food and alcohol. Pretty noisy at night and rooms were a bit smelly. If your in Amsterdam to party this perfect.


The shower rooms are not enough. We have to wait for the shower. The location is great. The room is not very clean but it's cheap though. The best thing is you can meet nice people to experience Amsterdam together which is much fun.


This is your average hostel. I struggle to find a very nice hostel in Amsterdam when comparing to other cities. Staff was knowledgeable and very nice. They are required to leave to front desk to help out in other parts of the hostel so you sometimes have to wait till are allowed back in. I believe there were only 6 power outlets in my room for 14 beds so it was a challenge to charge your devices. But the location was great. 10 minute walk from Central Station and everything else you would need


Room was double booked first night. Some people had to sleep on the floor. Blood stains on the beds. Money, Mobile phone and an iPod was stolen from our private room.

The positive point of this hostel definitelly is the location, since it's in the heart of Amsterdam. However, you need to know that sleep is difficult, because there is noise outside, however, who doesn't want to have a good party in Amsterdam? So, it really depends on what you want and what you are looking for. They should improve in cleanliness.


A very good location but noisy street above a bar.Coul,nt get more central for partying.


The share toilet and shower were not clean enough. Thought that internet could be accessed from room, but no, its only at one small common room


Location is great, but the main problem we had (I stayed here for two nights with my partner) was that despite booking two bunks they ha over booked. We ended up sharing a single bunk and locker. Wasn't ideal.

Atmosphere is what you'd expect from a hostel that's 100m away from the red light district (lots of males). Quite pricey for what you got, and the bathrooms weren't always in the best condition. Excellent central location though.


Excellent location, staff were awesome and accommodating. Right underneath a bar, the hostel lacked a common area but it wasn't hard to meet other travellers. Bathrooms smelt, but the rooms were fine.


it is a great spot, right in the redlight district. But this is a spot for young backpackers who want to go out and get high. If that is you, then it is great


Its a hostel in the middle of the red light district, so you've got a great location. But the rooms are not very clean, only 2 out 4 showers worked and only one of those has a lock. It constantly smelled like a mixture of BO and fried food from the bar below. There are few services: no luggage room, no kitchen, no common area etc All this being said, it's Amsterdam. There really aren't many options, and most hostel options in Amsterdam are no good. So at least this one is cheap and well located.


very poor.. clean..very no!!! Noisy..very nononono!!!!!! anyway...very poor..


The staff was amazing , friendly, and very helpful! The hostel overall was a great place to slay at. The other guests were friendly and social.

Its located in the very center of Amsterdam, with might be good but it is also close to Red Light district, which is very noisy and crowdy. The same applies to the hostel. So you can't expect a cozy and quiet place to sleep. The smell of weed is also a bit disturbing. The staff i ok. but neither extraordinary friendly, nor helpful. The hostel doesn't have much place to hang out. Its good, only if your'e looking for a place to sleep and lack of comfort doesn't deter you.
