I kind of liked this place, with all the flaws, But I would never recommended it. Only reason people choose this place is the low prices. 10-20 dollars depending on season. Expect the worse, then maybe your stay wont be that bad. MAYBE!! Some staff members EXCELLENT, others overworked tired and grumpy.. I stayed here more than one time, if you lucky maybe you get an okay experience. There is a good reason for all the bad reviews!

Best thing about this place is its location, some dorm rooms are facing the busy street. Okay to stay for a few days.but there are better hostels in the neighborhood.

Way overpriced, especially with the hidden charge if your not a member. Excellent location, only hostel around that area. The bathroom really run down, not the best showers. Common area was pretty nice.

There is a metro station just out side, that makes it easy to travel about. No self locking doors to rooms like most hostels in LA. Good common rooms. Kitchen will probably be better when they fix the oven, maybe get a fridge that guest could use, and kitchen utensil like cups and plates. I had a good time there Mexican shopping street close by with really less experience clothes.

Most of the bathrooms didn't worked when i stayed there (after doing booking now with hostelworld over 150 times this is the first time the price chance while i was booking around 32 dollars be over 40 dollars a night.) definite not wort the extra price, fore that price i could get a privet single room some where else. or 23 dollars for just a good hostel. Perfect for people whose not there to party or meet people (other guests), quiet there, good standard on rooms, and really good location.

Hello, During your stay the bathroom nearest to your room was being renovated but there are many other bathrooms throughout the hostel to chose from. The room rates have not changed since February,so the rate would not have gone up while making a reservation. It's true that we're not a "party hostel" our guests are more independent travelers. We don't arrange get togethers but allow our guests to decide if they want to socialize. Thank you for taking the time to write a review.

Stayed here more than to times. Room with kitchen in dorm room, only share with six people witch is great if your planning on making food. One oven/stowe didn't work in one room, one bathroom didn't have a working shower, i guess that's maybe too expensive to fix the bathrooms. Young crowd with party instinct, an activity every evening/night like free taco dinner and free beers with karaoke later. One of most rememberable stay I had over the hostels in LA

Location couldn't be better, for beach or night time party.Okay to stay, if don't own any thing of value. What ever expensive name brand clothes or accessories. 3 lockers pr room which there are six guests, luggage room open some times (people could grab what ever they want). Front door open. And no self locking door to your room, so the rooms are open usually, when other guest don't lock. Book the hole room if some one want to stay here.

Perfect if you want to live on the most busy party street in Amsterdam, Stayed here a few times, okay to stay if you,re there to party. Hostel quality depends on witch room and shared bathroom u get. my experience as been different every time, from bad experience with mice(even the best places could have that in Netherlands) that kept me awake while going in my empty chips bag. Too a good experience where i had an awesome stay.

A little more expensive than other similar hostels in Amsterdam. But it could be worth the extra price. one of very few hostels that has a kitchen for guest, and brand new. Except their low flow showers, excellent place. I would recommend this place to anyone.

Best for people that smoke weed. there is no smoking room for cigarets/tobacco. some other hostels in Amsterdam have a smoking room for both. Best looking hostel Bar//lounge In Amsterdam, If there's room. Worth the price If You're there to party a weekend.

the atmosphere in this hostel where far beyond expectations, common room with a pub and usually a some kind of activity every evening.While i stayed there there was bands performing, one was really good. I stayed in two different rooms and the decorating was really cool . different team in every room. The kitchen wasn't the best. If u are staying there, use the water boiler, takes 2 min. Then you dont have to wait 30-40 min just to boil water. Good location if you like harbor view.

Good location close to the train-station, and the "foreign" street where all the culture in the world collide. While i was in Rotterdam they celebrated Chinese new year .Closed the hole street. bunch of fire crackers and much to see. New hostel and a good choice to stay. except if you like to take a shower, here u must pushing the water button ever 10-20 seconds, while you shower, takes so much longer to take a shower. Excellent kitchen, common room and patio outside.

I stayed here many times before. Excellent location. On a quiet street. perfect a little bit of quiet relax time, away from all the sightseeing or partying. WiFi works very good in the rooms. Microwave at the hostel. Rely helpful staff for Amsterdam info and directions. Wish they didn't have a non slip mat,in the shower, cleanliness issue. Better with handlebars on the wall. to hold on too. That is my opinion. I will stay here again next time i go to Amsterdam.

Second time i stayed here. good for one night stay from going from one place to another. There isn't much to see in walking distance, around the neighborhood. If some one is planing to stay here, rent a bike or get a 2 days tram pass. Shared toilet or shower by maybe to many people. Nice to stay a couple of days, if someone want a look around that neighborhood.

Great starting point to see Amsterdam. Small rooms, when a 4 dorm becomes a 6 dorm. Sometimes i stayed here, me and I seen other guest, had too change rooms. Usually all other hostels i have been to in Amsterdam have upgraded me for all booked days. If the hostels over booked a room. not here. Every ting else is great.

International Budget Hostel I stayed here many times before, first choice when i want to stay at a hostel, close to Leidseplein. A Good place to go out if your in Amsterdam. Four Italian places, that serves all pizza and pasta, 5 Euro. its usually around double price other places. Excellent smoking room, like your living room with couple of vending machines. Microwaves my food if i ask :) WiFi works good in rooms.

First time i stayed here Fantastic view from the 8 dorm room on the top floor. best view from hostel in Amsterdam! high pitch sound in the room,(maybe from outside) other guest in the room notice that to. Other times i stayed in the big dorm. Great view! Fair price on breakfast. No WiFi in room. Smoking room with a view over Amsterdam, that can't compere with any one of all the other hostels or coffe place i seen. Shower could be warmer... Excellent place to stay.

Excellent garden in the back, where you chill. Building with a history. Stayed here before, a good place to stay. Showers sucks! 15 seconds of water for every time you push the button. Or use all your strength and try hold button inn, while one hand free for cleaning. Except for that is a cool place to stay.
