At Hostel Utopia, we're well known among locals (and a favourite with travellers) for our laid-back vibes and downstairs coffee shop where you can lounge in comfort and get a taste of Amsterdam life. Head to our outdoor terrace for lazy afternoons, grabbing a couple of beers from the on-site bar on your way up. Our common room is super relaxing, made for hanging out with friends or spending an idle hour scrolling through social feeds via the free Wi-Fi.


We're in the centre of the city just by Dam Square – surrounded by restaurants, coffee shops, pubs and clubs. Arriving by train? We're just a 10-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station. To find us from Schiphol Airport, jump on the sprinter for 17 minutes to Centraal. If you're into history and culture, we're just a 9-minute walk from Anne Frank's House and the famous De Wallen red light district. The Rijksmuseum is a 25-minute walk away, or you can jump on tram 2 for 13 minutes from Nieuwezijds Kolk.

Rooms and Dorms

To meet other backpackers, pick a bed in our mixed dorms where the bunks have individual sockets, under-bed storage and lockers for backpacks. We also have private rooms – great if you're travelling as a couple or like to play your own music while getting ready to go out. Every room has fresh towels and sheets and either a shared bathroom or an en-suite – many also have sinks in the rooms themselves.

Extras and activities

Seek out our multilingual staff at reception for advice on sightseeing and a free map of the city. We've also got tours you can join to make the most of your day, some of which will take you out of Amsterdam! Or you can hire a bike or car if you'd rather get around on your own. Not heading out right away after checking out? Leave your bags with us in our luggage room.

    The location was fantastic, a short walk from both the train station and the centre of the city and the rooms were quite clean. However, when checking in and out, the staff were not particularly friendly and the atmosphere was a it uncomfortable.

    Very small room, advertised private bathroom however the toilet and shower are shared between all 4 rooms and the sink is in your room. The room itself was clean but the shower and toilet were not. Staff were not overly friendly or helpful, location was great, but we had a much nicer experience when we changed hotels

    It's a pretty minimalist hostel, theres no staff. You check in at the hostel down the road and there is no where to meet people but that was to be expected! Also the stairs are extremely steep so dont try to carry a 25kg suitcase up them! Only real downside is that I'm pretty sure they have bed bugs so ya watch out

    No airflow, very hot in the room. Lockers were awkward, having yo pull out all the easy out blocked movement. Staff was short. No decent common area. Checking in different location sucks. Would not recommend.

    Don't let the photos confuse you, the biggest room of this hotel is a 2m x 3m room with a worn out bed, a trash, and very little space. When we asked something to the old receptionist, he told us to "not annoy him, as he was too busy". Don't expect someone to clean you room, and remember to bring an eye mask and ear plugs. The w.c. and the shower are separated by a curtain that will annoy you while you poop. Go somewhere else, even further from the city centre. You will be happier.
