    Great value for money in the private single rooms here. I just stayed 1 night but it'd be good for longer stays as well. the receptionist was very friendly and helpful. I'd stay here again.

    Very basic but very central hostel. Great if you’re just looking for a room to rest your head and leave your bag whilst you explore Amsterdam. We had a private double room with a shared bathroom and had no issues during our stay.

    Hot shower wasn't working. Imagine icy cold showers, similar to ice bucket challenge in cold Amsterdam winter. It was horrible. The staff acknowledged and said they'll do something, but nothing happened till I left. Perfect location, friendly staff, and decent room. I stayed in Room 7 which was at the very top of the building. The stairs were very steep as warned, so I had managed my expectations and carried a mid-sized luggage. The room was clean and they provided 2 towels which was nice.

    The staff are very nice, friendly and helpful. The location is great especially when you want to be in the sentrum. The room is perfect for backpackers and not the comfortable suitcase type of travellers because the stairs is so steep and small. I think the solo room is overpriced becuz i have stayed in much better hostel room with the same price. I jus think the price I paid is not worth it. But I like the staff they are nice!

    The staff was super nice! Really helpful and nice people. The location is perfect - literally 5 min to centrum. The rooms are not the cleanest, but we had what we needed and could borrow things as an hairdryer in the reception. The toilets were a bit cold

    Honestly not what I expected. The office closed early and we were unable to check in and the staff was not very pleasant or accommodating.

    The room was on the last floor and was tooo small that you could barely move. It has a toilet with the shower on it for 3 rooms (I'd say at least 6 persons) so if someone was taking a shower it was impossible to use the toilet. There was not hitter and the room was really cold. On top it was super noisy because it was facing the Main Street and the windows are not prepared to isolate the noises and the coldness. the money is not worth it

    I’ve been to quite a few hostels and the dingy, moldy vibe from the rooms and bathrooms specifically were not what I expected for the price. It smelled of cigarettes and was not a pleasant experience, I left early. The people there were not typical travelers and I felt truly uncomfortable sleeping there more than one night.
