This is a good place to stay if you are not remaining long time in Amsterdam, because the rooms are too basic and there is just a bathroom for three rooms. Ours didn't have a wardrobe. On the other hand, everything is very clean and the location is superb, 10 minutes on foot from Central Station and just after Dam Square. The steep stairs make this place not advisable for people with kids, reduced movility or heavy luggages. Nice roof terrace although not always useful because of the weather.

Don't forget to bring pans if you plan on cooking

Hi Stefi, thank you for your kind review, and I am very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us. I must however correct you, as our kitchen can be freely used but with limited access, as clearly stated on all booking sites. We deliberately do this for our own specific reasons. Thanks again and hope to welcome you back some day soon.


The hostel is a nice place to stay, it is relatively close to the central station and to the city centre. The rooms are small, but nice and clean. It is possible to use a kitchen for preparing small things or warming up a meal, but not for cooking, because there are no pans, pots or plates. The best is the roof terrace, espacially with this beautiful weather at the moment. If I plan my next trip to Amsterdam, I will come back to the Tulipana.


A shared apartment, we had a good sized double room, with windows that didn't open, but we were warned to keep the curtains shut during the day and it never got too hot. Roof terrace on top was a lovely thing to have access to. Well located, close to train station, but not too far out of town.


The person met us at our arrival and gave us very good suggestions for food. Altogether a very nice room and good locks. Very close to the station. I would definitely return.


Place was perfect in every way! The rooftop space was the icing on the cake! Can't beat the location and very clean. Yay!

Really modern and clean. Great location, within walking distance to most places. Security was good which was important as we were two girls travelling alone. Also the roof terrace is a really nice space.


Room was clean (everything quite new) , but in our room we've got only beds and a hanger. There were any pots or pans in a kitchen (only cups).

As an extra service we allow our guests to make use of our limited kitchen, as well as provide them with COMPLIMENTARY coffee and tea! We do NOT promote and/or try to sell our facility with kitchen access, so everything our guests receive in addition to the room should be seen as an extra bonus! Criticism of this is thus irrelevant.


Very clean, modern rooms. Very private. Kitchen supplied. Best roof deck ice encountered so far. Great for couples.


the stairs were a big downfall of this property, made you not want to go back out after youve came in as you knew you where gonna be facing a lot of stairs, which is very tiring.

On ALL our pages we CLEARLY indicate and mentioned the fact that our residence is located on the 4th floor. We have had people of age stay with us (AND aware of the situation prior to arriving!), whom have had NO complaints. If ones physical condition or any other reason for that matter, is not in a state to climb 4 flights of stairs, a more appropriate accommodation should be chosen and NOT complain about this afterwards!


Had fab time. Good value for money will defo stay again.
