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.

Forget those corporate factory hostels, 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! Did we mention the beautiful roof top terrace, with gorgeous views of the Oude Kerk?

To top it off, inclusive pricing gives you the best valued Hostel in Amsterdam. With Breakfast, Maps, Taxes, Towels, Luggage storage and WIFI all included in your price, really! No tricks and hidden fees.

    The hostel is located right in the red light district. They provide exactly what you’d expect and have a bar/restaurant downstairs. The staff was always helpful and security only let patrons into the building. For anyone wanting to experience the red light district, this is a great choice

    It was a very good decision staying at Bulldog hostel. The location is perfect and the staff is very well trained and prepared. The place has a Coffee Shop at the main floor with good food, cold beer and a warm staff. Very good!!!!

    The location of the Bulldog is amazing. So central to everything. Most of the staff were really nice. Breakfast is standard hostel food. Easy to make friends. Had a good time there.

    More of a brand name than anything else. They try their best to keep the weed smell out of the room but it doesn’t really work. Bathrooms were really clean and one of the employees left all of the supplies in there overnight for some reason. very loud. It’s nicely located in literally the middle of the marijuana part of the red light district and the security is good, but the front desk staff is quite rude and just wants to ignore you and keep joking around with other employees Good for partiers
