Hostel has no atmosphere as all the powerpoints and wifi are in the bar - which kills the bar. Nice staff and good location however. There is also one really friendly and pretty receptionist from northern Spain, who if you're reading this my Instagram name is the same as this account so I can show you when I go to your town in Spain and trolltunga 😊

Let's start with the positive things - the staff were very friendly and the location is excellent with a great view. The rooms not so much - no sockets in the room so you needed to leave your phone charge at the reception which is ridiculous. The rooms couldn't be locked, though there were lockers in the room where you could store your luggage. The staff must let you in each time you want to enter the hostel but it still felt strange not to be able to lock the room at all. Bathroom was clean.

Perfect location, great if you just want a place to crash for a few hours. Very simple but clean. Friendly staff and 24 hour curfew. Can't complain for the money, lockers to keep your stuff safe.

The employees in the hostel are very kind. The visitors are nice too. Everyone is easy going. We had a very pleasant stay for the second time and if come to Amsterdam again, I'll come to Meetingpoint.

Staff's were nice,but as for the hostel is considered I don't think I will stay there again. The common area is 24 hrs but after 11 or something it's just filled with outsiders not the ppl staying in. If you looking to socialise and meet people look elsewhere.

Need power sockets in the bedrooms and WiFi in the bedrooms. I don't want to have to sit in the bar area to charge my phone and use WiFi. Pool table in the bar seriously needs replacing. If not, then it should be made much cheaper to use.

For an old building in the centre of town it's totally fine cleanliness-wise, but you can feel it's old. Not an amazing hostel but not bad either! Amazingly easy location to find from the central station. On a pretty busy street, but ear plugs made it ok. The mattresses leave a little to be desired. The common bar area is ok but not hugely atmospheric and only getting wifi down there means you can't skype anyone or anything requiring hearing past the bar music. Lockers are secure. Good price!

Very friendly and helpful staff and a great location, within 30min walking distance to most attractions.

The location is very good and the view from the dorm was just amazing, but there are no electricity plugs or entrances in the room, you gave to go charge your cellphone and camera batteries at the bar, and for security reason, everytime you enter the hostel, you have to show a paper. The street gets really crowded, so you have to zombie walk around tourists to get to the hostel, but you are in the heard of downtown and everything is waking distance. The dorms are really basic, and beds assigned

Really nice and comfy hostel with a great location. Staff is nice and a bit sneaky, making downstairs' bar only place to charge your phone so you are tempted to drink beer and socialize. Atmosphere was perfect for young traveler. A bit more cleaning here and there wouldn't do harm but toilets were properly maintained.

Excellent location! Some staff much more helpful than others. Despite stairwells being dirty, the bathrooms and dorm rooms are very very clean. Clean sheets and blanket provided. Overall good value and we had a very pleasant stay. They were accommodating when we extended our stay another night :)

I understand that you expect to pay more for Amsterdam accommodation, and have no problem with this as long as the hostel meets some basic requirements!! Our room was spacious but unclean and old fashioned. The showers are a nightmare - you have to repress the button every 10 seconds or so. The staff were often rude, you have to pay for the use of ANYTHING in the hostel and the smoking room door is poor, so every item you own will stink when you leave. If updated this could be a great hostel.

Awesome location! The atmosphere is great as well. Beds are not comfy and it smells very funky throughout the hostel but other than that good find!
