Our drug and alcohol-free Central Station Hostel is a laid-back retreat in the heart of Amsterdam – we even come with a pet cat! Our staff can help you plan your days and will hand out amenities like city maps and invites to free walking tours. Although we're right in the city's most popular area, we're set back on a quiet side street so your dreams shouldn't be disturbed. The best way to navigate this cyclist-friendly city during the day? Hire one of our bikes!


As you might have guessed from the name, our hostel is only a 12-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal (the main train station), next to Dam Square in the middle of the city. It's perfect if you're arriving by train from Schiphol Airport, which is a 19-minute journey. We're less than a 15-minute stroll from some of the city's top spots, like the Anne Frank House, so you can save cash by skipping public transport.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll have linen included for free with your bunk in our mixed or female-only dorms, so there's no need to try to fit a duvet cover and pillowcase in your rucksack! You're in luck if you like a hot shower every day, as all our rooms are en-suite. Don't sweat it if you didn't pack a hair dryer – you can borrow one from us. Store your valuables in our small security lockers before heading out along the canals for extra peace of mind.

Extras and activities

Got a Skype date lined up with the fam back home? Jump on our free Wi-Fi. If you've brought your laptop along, you can keep it under lock and key in one of our safe deposit boxes. Our 24-hour security helps too, plus 24-hour reception and no curfew mean you can rock up at any time. There's a supermarket around the corner for essentials (read: chocolate), and we've got tea and coffee facilities if you can't go without your cuppa in the morning.

    Location wise this is the best place to stay in Amsterdam. It was clean and staff was friendly. The worst part of this hostel is its staircase. They are steep, narrow and small. So it becomes a challenging task to climb up these stairs when you are high and drunk. Even after the stair cases i will recommend place if want to enjoy sitting adjacent to the canal with a beer and smoke.

    This hostel turned out to be much nicer than I was expecting. The rooms weren't too crowded and the bathroom was clean. This is a good place to go if you just need a place to sleep because it is really small with no common areas. This was my first time staying in a hostel and I felt really safe here.

    I only stayed here one night but it was good for the location and price. It's in the middle of the Red Light District but you don't feel unsafe and there are plenty of restaurants and things to do around here. It's a bit hard to find but there is a bike rental service in front who can help. The stairs to get up are extremely steep and narrow so be careful with your luggage and the rooms aren't very clean. It was a reasonable hostel and great for just the one night.

    Difficult to find, there are no too much signs available, the place is very hidden so without Internet or Google maps it may take a while. The facility has a very dangerous up/down stairs. The hostel charged one night out of 2 previoulsy (in case I didnt Show uo) but they did it in advanced without informing me and at my Arrival I had to pay again my Reservation claiming that the Money will be refunded later to my bank account. So check this before you arrive.

    This was one of the worst hostels that I have ever stayed in. It is not as close to the train station as it suggests and is at least a 20 minute walk away. The stairs when you walk into the hostel are are so steep, it’s dangerous—seriously. The rooms were not the clean and the beds were very uncomfortable. Also, this was the only hostel that I have stayed in where you have to pay a deposit to get the key. The staff were not very friendly. Also, they do not have any lockers for use. Pass on this
