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!

- Check-in at 2 PM / 14:00h
- Check-out before 10:30 AM

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

    It was fine , not that great not that bad. Was cheaper and and was the centre of the city. Convenient to all the places like dam Square and while using trams. Not at all a clean, no elevator as thr are 4floors and I got the third one so it was pretty difficult . Very small place to stay . Music was Amazing Staff was Amazing No kitchen Place was really small and untidy Will give 4 out of 10.

    Perfect location right in the centre. Checking in was a bit manic and the man behind the counter was very rude and had very little patience for anyone. The rest of the staff seemed lovely though. I stayed in an all girls dorm which was nice and beds were comfy with a separate toilet, shower room and sinks. You get a key card to come in and out and a lock and key for a locker but have to pay 10euros deposit for each at check in. Quiet at night and bed comes with a pillow, sheet and bedding.

    Great location. Centrally located to pretty much everything you want to see in Amsterdam. Also very close to Amsterdam Central station, which is a plus. The hostel allowed us to store our luggage after checking out without extra fee, which we very much appreciate. Not the cleanest place I've stayed but most of the review already mentioned that so I already knew what I was walking into.

    We had bedbugs in our room and after informing the staff, they seemed relaxed and we don't think that they will do something against it

    This Place is well located BUT THEY HAVE BED BUGS! They haven’t cared at all when I told them and apparently that’s an old issue. So don’t go there! Seriously the money you will have to spend on getting rid of the bugs you can just put into getting a better hostel. In addition to that the staff was unfriendly. They woke our entire room up the one night I stayed there. After that I left due to the bugs. I can not recommend this place at all!

    I have never seen dirty hostel like this. I was so regret and I think I would be sick because of ilness area.I definitely recommend that you must be far away from this hoste. The staff is good but every place is so badly dirty. It is not worth to stay in. It is expensive and it is in Amsterdam but I couldn't my eyes because Amsterdam is the first quality town inside the world. I didn't care of the comments and rates so I did make a mistake.

    This was a terrible hostel, and the owner is so rude and takes advantage of budget travels by not providing any basics like hand soap. The place smells like mold, and there are holes and stains on the linens and pillows. They say they provide breakfast on forms and online but correct themselves when you arrive, saying they don’t. Stay away, you’ve been warned. Locals have even heard of this awful place and say it has a reputation for being an expensive bad hostel.

    My rate should be able to go to -10. The location was amazing, the staff was really nice besides 1 old guy really really really impolite, besides him, all other young guys were absolutely attentive. The location is great but I don’t think it worth the absolutely crazy amount of money. The cleanliness was absolutely disgusting! The toilets and showers smells like p**s. The worst place I’ve ever been in my life. I’d most definitely suggest you to go somewhere else.
