Property Description

Welcome to Bob's Youth Hostel! The coolest place in town ;)

Over 30 years ago, Bob decided he wanted a hostel. A youth hostel that is, where young people from all over the world could sleep under the cleanest of sheets without having to pay too much!

Today, Bob's is still a cool place with nice people on a central location. Our 2 buildings are typically-old-Dutch & especially charming. This means that there are no elevators and that our stairs are Amsterdam-like steep. We offer the cheapest beer in town, good music and a free and relaxing atmosphere. Besides that we have a very friendly staff that will always be helpfull showing you the non-touristy, or if you like the touristy, places of Amsterdam.

Here are some details on Bob's dormitories:
- No curfew!
- Clean linen is included
- The reception is open from 08:00 AM until 03:00 AM
- Bar open from 8am to 3am with the cheapest beer in town!
- Free use of lockers to store your bags (deposit required for the key)
- Check-in at 2 PM / 14:00h
- Check-out before 10:30 AM
- Free use of luggage room

Please note that:
- We have age restrictions; we can not accept people under 18 or above 30 years old.

    The hostel is really simple and you won’t find many facilities available. The location is nice. The room where we stayed (for 14 people) had only one toilet which was really disgusting without any decent structure

    We arrived late in the night, we did check in and when we went to the room there were people in our beds. They treated it like it was our fault. Bathrooms were disgusting. Only thing good was the location.

    It’s cheap and almost cheerful. I’ve been travelling Europe and this was by far the dirtiest, the sheets clearly hadn’t been changed and as a result there was lots of hair and fluff in the bed. Additionally, the shower room is small and dirty, as is the toilet- barely enough room to even sit on the throne! However, the location is incredibly convenient, but it’s offset by how lacklustre and bored all the staff seem

    The lobby looks like it hasn’t been cleaned in well over a year. We checked in to find out we weren’t actually staying at the building we thought we were. We were sent to a different property a block away. When we got to our room there were people in our beds so we had to walk back to the main property, the man told us to move their stuff which we weren’t comfortable doing but that was our only option. The front desk opens late, so we couldn’t get our lock deposit back when we went to check out.

    Well on the positive side the location was good and we didn't get bedbugs. The bathroom smelt so bad we couldn't have the door open to our room and we cleaned it ourselves. Very steep stairs and it is the next street over from the reception. No cool vibe or hostel activities. You feel dirty as soon as you enter. Do youself a favoir and pay a bit extra to stay somewhere else

    The rooms were okay, however the showers smelt like urine. The communal bathroom had no sink therefore no soap to clean hands. The place smelt like cigarettes. Apart from that it was an okay stay.

    Front desk/lounge area looked really unwelcoming and unclean. Shower was ok, toilet fine. Had to go to a separate property, rather than where I booked. The luggage room was an absolute joke. I put my bag in in the morning when I checked out, and came back to get it before my flight a couple hours later to find that there were about 30 new bags piled on top, so I had to literally crawl into the tiny room. When I expressed my disappointment with front desk staff about this, they laughed.

    WARNING: BED BUGS. If I could rate this hostel lower I would. Do not stay here it is a breeding ground for bed bugs. My entire dorm was infested with them and led me to just get a hotel. Pay a little extra to stay in a nice hostel or even a hotel.
