    The front desk was very friendly. Luggage storage is cool but not free after 6PM. Lobby is VERY small but we didnt spend much time there anyway. Wifi is good and rooms were clean and great! NO ELEVATOR so stairs were quite the excercise haha. location is perfect because its about 10/20 minutes from everything needed. (food, museums, train stations, canals)

    So the place did not have elevators so you have to take up your bags 2 floors. Other than that the the place was okay and safe too. It was near the public transportation and the dam was right behind it. The central station was a 7 minute walk. It was not extraordinary but works. As a solo traveller I felt safe there.

    This hostel is under 15 minute walking distance from all the top places in Amsterdam, we never needed to use any public transport. It was secure and clean, beds were comfy and lockers large enough to fit very big backpacks in. Me and my three female friends felt very safe in our all female dorm But there isn’t really a chance to meet people unless they’re in your hostel. So if you just want a place to safely stay the night and explore the city, it is perfect!

    Very central, you don't need to take the train at all if you stay within the city centre. The street outside was very loud at night. Staff was friendly and attentive. Shower was a bit small and directly next to the sink, so everything gets wet when you shower. Beds are okay, albeit a bit small, even for me, a short person (162cm).

    Hostel is located conveniently, close to the city centre and the red light district. But you will hear noises from outside at night as it is close to the road and a bar. Staff were friendly and helpful. Room and shared toilet were clean. Would be better to have privacy curtains, shelves near the bed for putting stuff, and more hooks in the bathroom.

    My stay wasn't bad. It was pretty clean. It's not a very social hostel, and I had a few sketchy guys in the room with me. The location was quite good, but thats about iy. Good place to stay if tou just need a bed for the night.

    Good hostel, well located, I did everything by walking and cycling, in general spending 10min. The room was warm and clean. WC and bath were fine, with shampoo and body wash available.

    Stayed here for one night, I was assigned to a bed that is super loud, the slightest movement you make the entire thing squeaks and I do mean the slightest. Also there are no individual plugs or lights or curtains. Do not bring heavy luggage as you would have to take a few stairs to go underground in order to check-in, then leave go accross the street where the actual dorms are located and go up very very steep steps. Location is good but will not stay here again.

    we booked a 12 person dorm and 14 people slept there. the beds were extremely loud whenever you’ll move a finger, i’m not even talking about turning on the other side of the bed in the middle of the night.

    Hostel is located near the center of Amsterdam, so overall the location is good. Many people staying at this hostel will be placed in a building a street away from the main one. To get up to your room, you need to climb several STEEP staircases that can be dangerous at night. Bathroom in our 6 person room had a constant sewage smell. Shower is also almost overtop the toilet, so when someone finishes their shower, the entire bathroom is wet for some time.
