This place was disgusting!! On the other side of the city, took over 30 mins to walk to and with a very heavy bag it was exhausting. The whole place looks like it hasn't been touched since it was built, possibly 20 years ago! It smelt and looked like a nursing home and I think I was the youngest guest by at least 30 years. The bathrooms and corridors where horrible, moldy, dirty and scraped and scratched everywhere. Paper thin walls, lots of traffic from the main street outside, loud staff too
Hearing so much about this place, I did expect a little more but it was quite nice and cosy. Just someone's house, so a little small and poky and nothing special (or award winning) but did have a homely feel to it. Kitchen was tiny and had to maneuver around for breakfast with everyone else. I was up in the attic, had to heave my big bag up there and the wifi didn't work at all. Good lounge room to watch movies in and awesomely close to the city centre! That's what steals the show!
This place is so close to everything which is great and the big dorm rooms are spacious and the single beds are refreshing, compared to bunks. Having our own kitchen and bathroom in the room was great, like our own apartment. It's in the building next to the office which could be problematic if there's an issue and it's an old building with a lot of narrow stairs, but that's the Dutch way of things! Is busy and loud on the weekends, but it IS Amsterdam! Great place overall
This place is close to the station which is great, and not far walk into the city centre. The area is a little dodgy so as a solo traveller, I didn't stay out on my own and even got hassled sitting outside the bar. The bar is really cool and I met some also people there who were also staying at the hostel. The all/single sex floors are great, with not too many people on each floor. Simple but clean and effective. If only it wasn't so expensive!! A few extra features would be better value for $$$
A little run down and very simple but good enough for a night or two if need be. Right on the main street so very, very loud unfortunately. No elevator either. However, the staff are brilliant and accommodating! The lovely lady behind the desk was very helpful and nice and Theo in the travel agency is a lifesaver. Put the best trip together for me for 5 days around the islands in no time!! And I absolutely loved it!! This place is good for a quick stay, especially if you're in Athens!
