    We stayed for 4 nights in a private room. The room was small but accurate to the photo with a sink and a shared bathroom and shower in the hallway. The location was what made it worth it as we were just a short walk to the city centre with plenty of shops, coffee shops etc around. The staff were fine, not particarly friendly but did their job. My only complaint would be that the walls are very thin and we woke up several times when others would come home as there are six bed dorms next door.

    Close proximity to the central train station, lots of restaurants, and main shopping street. Quick and easy check-in was great. Incredibly narrow and steep staircase to rooms was hard to manoeuvre with our luggage. Room was very small, not worth the amount we paid and the toilet/shower room on our floor didn’t drain properly

    Room wasn’t bigger than the bed itself, apparently the original room was cut into two (or three..) with a thin wallet. Every word of the people next to you super loud to hear. Mattress just 90cm for 2 people, horribly uncomfortable (could feel every single steel spring). But bathrooms clean, staff okay.

    Won’t be returning!! We had someone walk in our room whilst we was in it, we could also hear them trying other doors. We booked the room for 2 days but because we needed to check out before reception was open they told us that we had to check out before 3am and that they would lock us in the room. Staff wasn’t helpful at all and was charged more than was told it was going to be when booking, when I said about this staff just shrugged.

    It was a terrible experience for me. I think staff was not real. The staffs have no idea. If you are staying at this hostel, at first you should go to Bob’s youth hostel. Because hostel utopia has not got reception. If they give you roof’s floor, dont accept and escape from there (room numbers are 7-8-9-10) so narrow, so claustrophobic, so depressed and not hygienic..heat was not working, wifi was broken. When we told all of these complaints, they have just called us “Amsterdam stars!” Rude!!!

    Hostel Utopia has been the worst place i’ve stayed at in my entire life. The staff is incredibly rude, and unprofessional. Our room was filthy, with sewage water backup in our sink, so we couldn’t use it. Our sink wasn’t fixed until the last day we were there. No refund given for the unacceptable living standards.
