    Staff super friendly and helpful! Bathrooms and showers are very small but kept pretty clean. Walls are pretty thin so you hear your neighbors a lot, but other than that it’s awesome!

    This hostel was fun to stay in. The staff were polite and kind and I liked the location even though it wasn't in the heart of town. It was a clean place to stay and even though the stairs were steep and somewhat hard to climb up and down (especially with luggage), it was a great experience.

    The girl on reception was lovely and helpful but there wasn’t much atmosphere. Could do with better lighting in the bedrooms as well.

    Great budget Hostel to stay at, with the staff being super nice and helpful with whatever you may ask them. The only problem I had was that there wasn't really a "meeting new people" atmosphere. But other than that, a great place to stay if you're looking for one in Amsterdam

    Careful climbing the stairs but otherwise this is an average hostel, the name alone says it all ("budget hostel"). The staff is respectful but nothing special and the lounge area to smoke is alright but not many people use it. The beds are comfortable and the showers/toilet are average. I wouldn't mind staying here again because the security measures made me feel safe so if your just looking for a place to sleep this is perfect hostel but it is not ideal to mingle with other travelers.

    For a girl, I think isn't the best place to stay. It was dirty and smelled ugly. There are showers inside the room (no door) but the bathroom is outside. it's a little bit far from Central Station, you have to take public transportation.

    At 8pm, I (21F) was alone in hostel room 4 trying to sleep. A man, that I had never met, came into the room and specifically chose to lay down on the bed closest to me, even though there were other available beds open, and breathed VERY loudly while he masturbated in the bed right next to me. I let the hostel staff know what happened and she said she could switch me to a different room. Male hostel worker made me pack up my stuff 3 feet away from the man even when I asked to wait until he left

    Really terrible hostel, unclean. Crowded. My room only had 2 outlets for 8 people. My locker was used and they refused to help me. Overall bad experience and so over priced. Also the entire place reeks of BO and weed
