For what I was paying for a hostel (about 30 euros) the place needed to have better facilities: a kitchen, some outlets in the room, wifi besides in the lobby, clean bathrooms (and more than just two to a floor.) the space was adequate for what I needed: a place to crash and shower. But I've spent half that amount at other hostels and stayed in better places. You gotta give your customer their bang for their buck.


The security was astonishingly poor, every single door was open all throughout the day and surprisingly, also in the night. No one asked if we were customers when we came in, everyone could go inside. My room was an 18 people room and partners were friendly but the point was that when I arrived it was so dirty that I could not see anything positive. The location is relatively good in order to go out at night. The worst was the price. I paid 30€/night while other places have better prices.

Inconvenience with no kitchen, no locks on the doors to the rooms. The room had one plug in it, and it was an 18 person room. You had to go downstairs to the "bar/common area" to either charge your device at the table with plugs, or leave your electronic behind the bar to charge. Although the location is great for partying, you weren't allowed to bring in your own alcohol to the common area because the hostel was serving their own at the bar. Overall, a little dark and little room to socialize.


Loved the stay. Thank you all in meetingpoint hostel.

Great location and the bathrooms were clean! Not the friendliest staff, but I loved the location. It would be great if it had a kitchen, but overall it was a nice stay. The rooms are very simple and could be cleaner, but the hostel accomplishes its purporse. I didn't mind staying here at all.


Great location. No plugs in rooms and showers were quite dirty, but overall a very good hostel.


Really liked this hostel, despite what we thought it was going to be like! There are no keys - your room 'key' is a green piece of paper.. despite this the security was actually quite good. The lockers are huge and we managed to fit 3 rucksacks into one of them. Showers were really good and the water was always warm. In the street next to the red light district so it's really close to everything. Would definitely stay here again!


No charging points in the rooms, rooms don't lock. Great location however


I loved the atmosphere and the chill vibes.


Then hostel was pretty basic but that was only what i'd expect for the price. Sheets were clean, bathrooms were much cleaner than i'd expected they might be (maybe partly due to separate girls/boys bathrooms). Most people staying there seemed to be young backpackers - i went on my own and met a few people as i thought i would. Location is good if you want to party but not so good for museums.

The hostel is located in Amsterdam's city center, which makes it easy to explore the city. It is a great place to meet people, especially since the hostel has a bar and smoking room.


The cleaning staff was not friendly at all, no smile i hate that kind of people..


Extremely rude and disrespectful housekeeper who can shout and insult the hosts asking him to changing the linens.And he also brought some dirty linens instead of clean ones. Reception stuff are also not helpful and kind enough. Only benefit was location.


We did not particularly enjoy this hostel. It was very loud due the large amounts of people there for stag parties who filled the bar downstairs. The bar is only for people staying but it is the only place where there are charging points and where the wifi works they also require you to buy a drink while in the bar. If staying for a stag weekend or going to enjoy the nightlife this place would probably be great. If looking for a place to relax this place might not be the best place to stay.


Bed doona covers and pillows were disgusting. No locks on dorm doors at all so anyone could get inside your room. Would not stay here again or reccomend felt very unsafe .

We only stayed for a night but we loved it! The location was ideal, the hostel had super cool decoration and the staff were helpful. We had to climb a few stairs to finally get to the room but we're not picky people. Also, the breakfast was cheap and delicious. 100% recommended.


excellent staff, bar, location....value for money and i will stay again if i go to Amsterdam but there is no power pin in the room.otherwise over all the best place to stay.


Only complaint is wifi kept going in and out when we were there and isn't available in the dorms, otherwise standard good dorm and great location


In general words, I'm all satisfied !!!
