    Very thankful for the staff especially the receptionist on duty on the latenight shift on the last night of my stay. He went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable. Highly recommended hostel!

    Weird time to be in Amsterdam w/ things closed at 5pm but I still had a great time. The staff helped me figure out what to do with my travel plans when covid screwed them up. Since the town was relatively empty and closed for half the day, I spent time in the hostel and think it would be a really fun and inviting place in normal circumstances. The cubby beds are nice and dark and cozy. Special shout out to Josh and Nathan for being the best. I'll see you again after covid!

    I only stayed for one night here but it’s a great location. The pods were good to sleep in, although mine had crumbs on the mattress. Lockers fit a big bag, you need your own lock. A little hard to access your bag without being in the way of others in the room, but not a huge problem. No kitchen or fridge facilities available, so keep this in mind.

    I had a fantastic stay! The facilities themselves seemed brand new - super clean, and love the pod beds that gave a bit of privacy. There is a full pub on the first floor which is nice to hang out, it is pretty loud but surprisingly can't hear any of it once you're actually in the hostel portion of place. Staff was incredible friendly and helpful, felt super safe staying here as a solo female traveler.

    Steep steps to get to the room, small bunks, dark for good sleep, hard mattress, no towels, clean and a nice stay. Too bunks are hard to get int. Showers have body wash/shampoo. You get a discount at the bar if you show your hostel card, really close to centraal station and many shops. Very close to red light district.

    Excellent bar, great vibe. Location is great. Staff let me use the phone when I had to make an emergency call. Not noisy in the rooms despite being above a bar. Don’t stay here if you’re over 6’1, I’m 6’ and my feet were hanging off the mattress

    A very expensive hostel, especially considering we were in a 20 bed dorm. The dorm was so packed it was very challenging to access our luggage underneath the beds. When booking I understood it would be a crowded room and not the most comfortable stay, but I was willing to give that up for a fun social hostel. The bar was closed the first night I was there and then almost empty the next two nights. There is almost no common space in the hostel so not a lot of space to meet other people. The location is ver
