    My stay at Xplore Hostel was very good, the people who attended us at the reception were very kind and friendly. The location is ideal, it is very close to the central station and at the same time very close to the city center. The rooms were clean. No doubt if I returned to Amsterdam I would come back to this hostel.

    The 10 bed dorm was clean and was mostly quiet when it was supposed to be. The facilities with only a toilet in one of the attached rooms and then a shower and sink in the other were a little irregular, but still functional. There were also other toilets outside of the room. The location was the best part, that’s what was worth it for the money.

    I stayed one night in the 14-person dorm which was fine for the price. The check-in process was very slow but the staff were friendly and watched my bag whilst I went to get cash for the key deposit. There are no facilities apart from snacks you can buy in reception. The building I stayed in was the street behind the reception but this was not a problem.

    Very Good

    We stayed for 3 nights and I think it was just what we needed in terms of location and value for money. The dorms were mixed but it wasn't too much of an issue, the only disturbances were from the people we were in the dorm with who would come back at different times of the night, but that is to be expected in a hostel. Overall it was very convenient, but I wouldn't recommend for solo travellers who are looking to meet people as there isn't any communal spaces or organised events.

    No social atmosphere. Beds creak at the slightest movement. No privacy from others in the rooms.

    Nothing special about this hostel. I feel there are better options available in the city. The location is good as I arrived late and is close to the central station. Also reception is there late for check in. Didn’t feel like there much of a social aspect. The facilities I found were very bare m. They charge a large amount to store baggage; €5 per item! No breakfast or towels or padlocks etc like many other options offer. You also need cash deposit for a key so be aware before you check in. Felt it was a bi

    Didn’t like the receptionist at all, very cold, if your looking for a open area to meet people don’t come here, it’s very much accommodation only which is fine for the price, I’d recommend staying somewhere central and socializing in a better hostel like st Christopher’s, everything worked, the bag storage was 5€ each in an open room which I felt wasn’t secure at all, Very much meh, Stay somewhere else cheaper
