    The hotel is nice but I had a real bad experience because I booked 4 beds in a 4 bed too and when my group got there I had to stay in a separate room. It was my birthday, I was expecting to have a good night of sleep but didn’t sleep at all both nights because people that I don’t know wouldn’t stop snoring loudly and I couldn’t do anything about it. It really ruined my stay in Amsterdam, I was sleepy and tired both days. What a booking system this is ? I would kilndly accept a compensation

    A very stereotypical Dutch style "house"/building structure. Location was far from anything but it was very quite and easy to find. Staff was helpful. There was a cat in the lobby when I checked out and that made me happy. There were some issues I had- locker size, top bunk safety, and location.

    I stayed in a 6-person all girls room. It was pretty small and we had to tango everytime we want to get pass each other. The common room was also pretty small (only fits 3 people) so it was hard to meet other travelers. Remember to bring all your toiletries and whatnot (girls bring your tampons because the hostel doesn't have a tampon machine and doesn't know where you can get one after hours!!)

    This hostel is fine for one night. The location is ideal, in a quiet part of town but just around the corner from fun and you can get on a tram to anywhere in the city. My friend and I stayed in a 4 girl dorm, it was very small for 4 people and we were tripping over each other getting ready in the morning. Didn't find the bathroom as clean as I was hoping. The common room is tiny and no room to really sit, they do not encourage any kind of socialization in the common room.

    Every morning, I was quick to get ready because I was so eager to get OUT of Hostel Cosmos. Despite the great location, this hostel was extremely disappointing given the money we spent (which wasn’t even that much, so it tells you a lot about the quality of the hostel). It smelled like terrible meat, the rooms were gross and steamy, the mattresses were squeaky, and you had to pay €7 for just a towel. We expected bed bugs but fortunately didn’t get them. Bad hostel experience!

    Simply put, this hostel was terrible. 12 people should not have to squeeze into a tiny, dirty, humid room filled where the beds creaked every time someone moved. Given there was no limit on check in time, it meant that during the night (3am) we were rudely awoken by new guests turning on the lights and unpacking. Nothing at the hostel was clean- the hostel cat made everywhere smell filthy. The only perk of hostel cosmos was the location, but not worth the uncomfortable overpriced stay.

    rooms are really small, not possible to share it with 6 people. There was a really bad smell in the room. As if it was not expensive already, they charge you for everything.
