    I like this hostel. Just near to amsterdam centraal. I just walk for 10 minutes and arrive at this hostel. The staff was friendly, they accomodate my request to get lower bed. Reception 24 hours. Clean enough for me. Rent a towel for € 2 (pay €7 and will get back our €5 if we bring back the towel to reception). At the first floor is pub, but i can't hear anything at my room. So, i can sleep well. They provide affordable price for breakfast. But we have to climb up the stairs, no lift. That's OK

    Located right in the middle of the city with everything a short walking distance. All the staff were incredibly nice and welcoming. The atmosphere of the bar was really good with, TVs to watch sport and live entertainment. The room was ok but found a lot of dust in easily reachable places. If you don’t mind staying in a hostel (we booked 2 whole rooms) then it’s definitely value for money. The facilities were all very good, only problem was my shower was rather weak but was fine for wash.

    Great no frills place to lie your head at night. Plenty of space to store your belongings, great staff, and relatively quiet given the location in the heart of city center. Dorm area could have been a bit cleaner, and showers definitely could have. Showers also have little to no pressure/water flow. Overall would definitely stay again.

    Was only here for a day trip to Amsterdam. Not the best but not the worst hostel. Not as social or clean as I was expecting, but for the price and location I think it was way worth it!

    It was a good hostel! I appreciated the food and drink discounts at the bar, but it was sometimes hard to sleep because people outside were always so loud. But the location otherwise was pretty centrally located in Amsterdam, which was great!

    The location is what made me pick this hostel. I booked a mixed room and some strange older men stayed with us, but I suppose that's the luck of the draw. Bathrooms were less than ideal but if your only reason for picking this is because it is close to bars and coffee shops, then its great. Plus they give you a discount for the bar downstairs.

    The hostel is just a 10min walk to the central train station and in the middle of the redlight district. It's super save even at night. The hostel itself was quite dirty and the lockers have been ridiculous. One night i left some bread in my locker and a mouse (or anything else) has eaten it and left a hole in my bag. I told the reception and they weren't really surprised about it. Toilet and shower is in the same room. Stressy in a 10 dormitory.

    I stayed in a 10 person room. It was more like 10 people and a rat. We were woken up both nights to some rodent going through people’s things. I saw in the reviews that this has happened in the past and they claimed it was taken care of. Do not stay here. There is a reason it is cheaper than most places in Amsterdam.
