I wasn't expecting much after reading a few bad reviews saying that the hostel was dirty. But It turned out to be a great stay! The hostel was clean, neat and in good condition. I would defenitely recommend this hostel to others. Great price and location too. Only minus point: Some of the staff members are very rude and impolite.

Good bath, but the door of the shower was broken and it let all the bathroom wet. Good bads and lockers. There's no lift and really steep steps to the 4th floor. The wifi doesn't works in the room, at least no in the 4th floor. But really well located and there's a nice bar at the reception.

I can understand why there are so many people saying is so dirty, and so many people saying it's ok. The first two days i spent in a room on the first floor, with a bathroom super dirty, and not just because of the other travelers. You can see that there's not much care for cleanliness aroun that hostel. The third day they changed me to another room, much better, much cleaner, but still, not that clean. The corridors were disgustinly dirty every single day.

Some of the staff at this hostel were fine but some were really quite rude, and we were almost afraid to ask them questions because of it. Our room was incredibly dirty, it hadn't been cleaned, and only one of the four empty beds had been made, and we checked in at 6pm. When we told them that the beds weren't made and the room was dirty, they gave us clean sheets and said to do it ourselves. They advertise wifi in the hostel but the wifi only works in the bar downstairs and not in the rooms.

I was there just for one night. Everything perfect. The receptionist was very kind and helpful. I was lucky with the guys I met in the room I shared. Nice atmosphere. Solo estuve por una noche. Todo muy bien. La recepcionista muy amable y simpatica. Tuve suerte con la gente que me tocó compartir habitación. Buen ambiente.

The only good thing is the location. The worst hostel I have ever had.The staffs are unfriendly. The room is very small and bad smell. Floor is dirty. Bathroom seemed like never be clean and flooding. Very bad. Will never stay again.

Overall I had a blast at this hostel, amazing location, minutes from coffee shops, debit machines, food, and the red light district. The Atmosphere was perfect for a younger crowd 18-30. The hostel was really dirty and the stairs were crazy steep. But if you are just there to have a good time then you really don't worry about these things. The bar on the main floor is a perfect way to meet people.

Really, I only booked this HOSTEL because there was nothing left in Amsterdam. The management just doesn't care about the place. They keep asking ridiculous high prices for a dirty smelly place in bad conditions. Some of the employees can be nice and helpful if you are lucky enough to come over them, but I do suggest people to AVOID this place.

Great location, and a decent bar (cheap). However, the staff were not friendly or interested in the customers. Whilst functional, the hostel gave off a negative vibe. No wifi in rooms, and not enough sockets. No locks on lockers, unless you bring your own padlock (and even then, the lockers can easily be forced open).

It is not really an hostel, is an hotel, so... we didn't like so much... because we didn't have a common room or a kitchen... We prefer a hostel, because this was a hotel with rooms like a hostel. Anyway for the money was good, and really near to the center.

One of Amsterdam's hostel with the lowest room rates(during weekdays). Excellent location as it is in 5 mins walking distance from the main station. Very clean hostel which has an own bar downstairs. Some factors which should be taken into account: Very small rooms, serve pretty much only to go sleeping there. Steep stairway (not uncommon in Amsterdam) but considering that my room was on the 5th floor and no elevator there it was a small workout ;-) All in all: Very good value for money!
