    Excellent location in the city. Right next to a coffee shop which was nice for the evenings, but they started to play loud music in the mornings. Only negative thing I have to say! We had plenty of room, everything was very clean, the staff was wonderful, and it was thanks to Hostel Utopia that we had such a great stay in Amsterdam! :)

    You get what you pay for. An amazingly located, small room with no breakfast that's enough for a good night sleep, if a few stains here and there don't bother you. Definitely enough for the trips that I have to Amsterdam.

    Very Good

    Great location, stayed in room 7, the window was broken, if it hadn’t been for the extreme wind and weather it probably would of gone unnoticed but the window was violently slamming throughout the night waking us up. With a bit of creativity I managed to stop this from happening the second night. I never reported the problem as walking to the reception is too much of an inconvenience. Location sold it for us but with a bit of forward planning I’m sure more comfort and luxury is available.

    I had fun here meeting some awesome travelers. The place is basic, which was okay—except there are three hostels (Bob’s 1, 2, and Utopia) and no matter which one you book they will place you in the one that’s most convenient for them. There is no kitchen, and storing food is awkward as it’s not allowed in the rooms; the otherwise friendly staff seemed disgruntled when I requested them to store a couple items of food for me. Worst, no hot water for showers after first 15 seconds. Steep stairs.

    The hotel is right next to a “coffee” shop which plays thumbing music from 7.30am till 3am ish so as you can imagine it was hard to get a good nights sleep. Staff were friendly but the hotel is why too overpriced..most expensive and disappointing hostel/hotel I’ve ever stayed at.

    Many complaints. Sheets and blankets were stained and dingy. Bathroom was mildewy. No security system, check-in down the block and just a pin pad for security. Walls are paper thin and you can hear EVERYTHING from your neighbors. Can't even stand up straight in your room. Overcharged us and the website still won't refund us money. Extremely dissatisfied.
