Experience the real buzz of Amsterdam when you stay at The White Tulip Hostel. We’re in the Red Light District on the city’s busiest street for bars and coffee shops. Get to know other travellers over drinks in our ground-floor Irish pub: it's two-for-one on Heineken during our daily happy hour. If you're here to party, you can drink in the bar until 3am on the weekend or join one of our pub crawls. Our reception stays open 24/7 (with night security) to welcome you home.


We're easy to find, just a 5-minute walk from Amsterdam Centraal Station which runs trains to and from Schiphol Airport every 10 minutes until 1am. Oude Kerk is 2 minutes away, and you can stroll round Amsterdam's medieval city centre De Wallen (5 minutes away) at your own pace, dropping in at a Dam Square café for a spot of people watching. We have bikes to hire too so you can pedal at a leisurely pace alongside the canals. To find your way in the city's maze of streets, join us on a free walking tour.

We have both shared dorms and private rooms to suit solo travellers, couples or groups of mates. We make sure they're all clean, and we provide bed linen and towels for free and hairdryers for hire (so there's room in your bag for more shoes). Our lockers are perfectly sized to fit your backpack – just remember to bring a padlock.

    Usually I stay at a hostel down the street but they were charging 65€ per night so it was a no thank you from me Nelly. The White Tulip has everything you see on the tin with dorms, beds and lockers. Ideal location and guest discounts at the bar downstairs. The bathroom situation was a bit of a squeeze though and in the dorms the beds had these coloured lights on the wall that for the life of me I couldn't figure out how to turn the b*starding thing off.

    The hostel is at a great location if you want to be in the center of things, but with that comes a lot of noise at night and the smell of all the smoking from the bar downstairs. The rooms which are towards the back of the building are more quiet and don't smell as much. The facilities are clean most of the time and the bed are nice. Great staff that really helped with every problem. The biggest problem is that they don't have female rooms so it is possible you will be the only female.

    i have to say i was really disappointed. I slept in the 14 sleeproom and the first thing i noticed was that the windows were broken, you couldn’t close them. And in the winter time it was really cold there. Also they don’t have a heater which was weird . Another thing they is that they have a LED plug on every bed which is so annoying if you want to sleep. And make sure to bring a blanket with you because apparently they do not have proper ones.

    The location of this establishment was fantastic! I loved being so close to prostitutes, it made my whole trip. That was the only good thing about this trash ass hostel. The stairway reeked of danger and destruction. The rooms did not smell like white tulips, more like smelly butt cracks. The bathrooms were consistent at having puke in them almost every morning, showers included. An acquaintance of mine contracted some sort of skin disease while sleeping in those god forsaken cots.

    An absolute nightmare. Counted the minutes until I left. People party and scream until 4 am. No sleep. Staff doesn't enforce quiet hours. Filthy co-ed bathroom and showers. Dirty feminine items and feces all the time. Smells awful. Their idea of cleaning is just to windex the mirrors. Ruined my entire trip. Expensive. Dangerous area, was constantly catcalled & even physically grabbed at one point. Do yourself a favour and stay far far away. I might need therapy after staying here.
