Hostelworld says

It's no exaggeration to say this is one of the best known hostels in the world. Most will know of its legend simply by word of mouth. It's located right in the centre of the city smack bang in the middle of all the action, with the red light district and Dam Square mere steps away. The place is lively without being unbearable. It doesn't accept stag or hen do's, sports groups or massive marauding all-male parties, so you can expect the hostel bar and overall atmosphere of the place to be fun and lively, but not too boisterous.

Property Description

For more than 20 years, The Bulldog Hotel has been an icon for travelers around the world. A true Amsterdam pilgrimage is not complete without a stay in our beautiful, canal side Hostel. Of course we have the multilingual staff, 24 hours access, Free WIFI, on site security, lockers and bag storage that you expect from a great hostel.

The Bulldog was built with love by real Amsterdammers. You stay in the heart of the action with The Red Light District right outside your door, an attached coffeeshop and the most dynamic, fun crowd in town. No need for public transport (and the cost!), you can walk or bike to everything.

Our in house Lounge Bar is one of the best in town, where you can meet people from all over the world, have a drink, a smoke and try to make sense of it all! The Lounge is always busy and the perfect place to meet travellers from all over the world.

Did we mention the beautiful rooftop terrace, with gorgeous views of the Oude Kerk?

Our Dorm Rooms are well maintained and include the free use of a locker (bring a lock or buy one onsite). Showers and Toilets are located in the room, so no running down the hallway for a shower! You may be placed in an 8, 10 or 12 person room. We do not guarantee room size.

Private Rooms are equipped with private bathrooms, TV, hairdryers and a safe for personal belongings.
Free Bed Linen is provided and towels are available from the front desk at no extra charge.

Join us for our daily Bulldog Boat Tours or ask about the free walking tour each day. We can't wait to see you in Amsterdam :) View House Rules

    Great location only about 10 minute walk from central train station. Staff are super friendly and helpful. The lounge bar downstairs is lively, and the coffee shop is only next door! I did travel solo and struggled to meet others as many staying there travel with friends, so not much mingling happens. Although I may have had better luck if I’d stayed in a bigger mixed dorm. Free breakfast is a bonus! Would defiantly stay again but bring a friend. Lockers are a great size, felt very safe!

    Breakfast buffet was good. Room and bathroom were clean but a bit smelly and the water temperature in the shower wad either too hot or cold. Location was perfect and the lounge is a good place to chill. I would recommend.

    Good Hostel, gets the job done. I was a little disappointed that in the lounge it was a mostly older crowd, I was hoping for more people around 21 but it was definitely dominated by older adults. Other than that, the staff is friendly and the rooms are clean enough. The location is in a very touristy spot, but gives you access to the entire rest of the city. Utilize the coupon cards the hostel gives you, very good deals.

    Very Good

    Overall my stay was average. Security and location are very good. I was in the 12 bed dorm and it was very messy and smelly when I arrived but that was because of other guests. Overall everything is a bit worn down but useable. You are paying for the good location. I enjoyed my weekend and accommodations were fine but would probably not stay here again.

    I would say they suck for charging me $50 for a stain on the bedsheets! That was a little aggressive instead of just washing the sheets! The location wasn't bad, the breakfast was OK. I am not so sure I'd stay here in the future especially if I want to relax. The smoke smell throughout the Hostel was a bit much. It did have the best weed aroma, closer to tobacco in my opinion.
