    This was a great place to stay! I felt very safe, given that it was the Netherlands, but travelers should be aware that the doors stay open pretty much all the time and you’re not given a key to come and go — you don’t need one. It was in a great location, but it is a bit of a trip into Amsterdam as they say on the listing. We loved it! But be sure to consider that before booking. Staff was friendly, the space was clean, and the pods were super comfortable!

    LOVED staying at this hostel! The pods are so cozy and the staff was so friendly. I was nervous about the location being far away but it was such a cute town and was very easy to get to using the bus. I recommend renting bikes and biking to Amsterdam, the bike ride was truly an amazing experience (it was about an hour through farmland). Staying at this hostel allowed me to see parts of The Netherlands I would have never seen otherwise. Loved it :)

    Due to travel issues beyond our control, we arrived in the middle of the night & were welcomed by staff as if it were normal hours. Very cool set up, loved the darkening curtain on the dorm beds. We were only there a few hours but once we got there, it was great! Recommend

    Amazing modern, clean and really unique hostel for a trip to Amsterdam. Buses are very convenient to get to the hostel from Amsterdam Centraal. Staff are extremely helpful and kind. Pods are spacious and really comfortable — Even when it was 30°C outside. I would definitely recommend to friends. The only one thing to keep in mind is that night buses do not run during the week, but you can always get an Uber. At weekends, there is no problem getting a bus at night.

    Pros: - The bed was very comfortable, and I loved the pod concept, which provided a nice amount of privacy - The staff was extremely nice and accommodating - Price. This hostel was the cheapest option for us by far. Cons: - Location. The hostel was annoyingly far, and the buses came every 30 minutes from Amsterdam. The basic Amsterdam travel pass doesn’t cover the bus to the hostel, so you have to get the regional pass which costs almost double. - The layout of the hostel doesn’t make much sense. The

    Comfortable beds and the pod design makes it much more tolerable to be in a room with 30 people, but for the price this is pretty lacking. Not much more than a place to sleep. Only one toilet and there was no soap in the bathroom. Not really any common area except the smoking patio. No socializing going on here. Really far from Amsterdam as well. 20 minute bus ride which isn’t the end of the world but if you’re looking to party get ready to end your night at like 12 because the last bus leaves to this place
