First and foremost, I would like to thank the staff – Hanns, Franz, and Flor – for their warm hospitality. It was my first time visiting Amsterdam, and I had not experienced staying in a hostel before. Although I didn't interact with anyone, the atmosphere was good. The people were friendly and approachable. As for the facilities and cleanliness, I must say everything was good. One thing to consider is that the location is Zaandam, which is very close to Amsterdam. You need to pay 3 to 4 euros for each trip

The staff were very friendly, for some reason my booking was cancelled definitely my fault for not checking their multiple emails. They were able to find me one last bed however and hooked up me up with a free towel for my troubles! The bed was comfortable and there was a usb and usb c charger plus heaps of outlets in the dorm. The bathroom was as adequate, the showers were clean and so was everything else. The atmosphere was pretty average but possibly just due to my own timings.

Very welcoming and friendly staff, especially Alfie !! The place was generally well cleaned and looked after. Pods were very clean and private with curtains. Minimal noise and I felt comfortable solo travelling for the first time and staying over here.
