The owner is the loveliest lady, who brings you breakfast in bed. I saw the reviews before i visited of how lovely she was, but she surpassed my expectation. Lovely big rooms. Only negative was the cold showers we had on three of the mornings, but im sure if we'd mentioned it something would have been done. Great location, close to the train station and all the main tourist sites.
The staff are really friendly, and the owner is a lovely man, who is happy to help with any queries you may have. He talked us through all the best sites to visit, and the easiest ways to get there (although we walked everywhere, as its pretty close to everything). The rooms were spacious and clean, although only two showers for the whole hostel, there was never any queue. Only downside was the breakfast included, which on 2 days was a piece of dry bread. A lovely hostel very close to station.
Great hostel, felt like i was staying in a hotel. There was a mix up with our booking, which meant we ended up paying for an extra night, which was very annoying. All the facilities were top quality and the ensuite bathroom was lovely. Very far out from the main city area, so had to get the metro. No air-conditioning, so very hot, but we were used to this staying in hostels.
Great budget hotel with a great location. Very busy. Close to all the main attractions, including leidseplein and rembrandtplein. The tram stop is also very close to the hostel. Happy hour every day, with cheap alcohol, which is great as Amterdam can be very expensive. Lively atmosphere in the hostel, although checking in and out is pretty unorganized.
