We're close to the city’s main attractions, including the Heineken brewery and museum quarter (not to be missed) and Leidseplein square, as well as the Anne Frank House. Even though we're near to some of the city's best nightspots, we’re based down a quiet side street, so your sleep shouldn't be disturbed by noise. To get to the hostel from the airport, take the train to Amsterdam Central station and from there Metro # 52 and get off at the Wijzelgracht. The Fokke Simonszstraat is on the left side of the street. Alternatively Bus 397 from the airport will bring you to the Rijksmuseum from there it is 10 Minutes walk

Very Good

It's a budget hotel, so i expected as much, and it delivered no more or no less. The staff were very helpful. The beds were too soft.

I thought it was excellent. Granted, I got lucky and only one other person stayed in the room and didn’t come until Midnight so essentially got it to myself :) It was very secure, free luggage storage (unlike other hostels where you have to pay), seemed fairly close to most things in the city. There are great restaurants, bars and cafes in the direct area. Metro is close by. There was no air conditioning to my knowledge but there is a fan. Each bed was also given an extra blanket.

This place was great for a hostel. The staff is extremely friendly and very helpful. The security is good as the door to the street is locked always. The location was pretty good, we always walked there. Toilet and shower were clean.
