  • i think it was very expensiv in the weekend. twice as much as in the week. that is crasy ! you only get a bed to sleep in,then i think it is expensiv. It was not a very sosial hostel, no facilities that i could see. A tip to the hostel : it had been nice with a trash can in the doorm room and in the shower room. And it had been nice with better light at the shower room. The bathrooms are very close to the reception, had been better with a door between the reception and bathroom... :)

  • I was in the girls dorm, it is a climb to the top of the building but it is really light and airy in there. Expect it to be communal. Lots of people to one bathroom but we didn't have trouble working it out. The staff were always helpful when I asked them for things. The location is perfect, right by Amsterdam Central and near the middle of this easily-travelled city--I could walk across it. Lots of great food-shops near by. Not shady at all and I've traveled around.

  • Bigger security lockers would have been nice. Shared one small locker with 2 other friends so limited to amount you could lock away.

  • Staff and location are worth everything else, if you don't mind virtually no other space than your bed and toilets. Computers are available for internet (: Book in advance and confirm, many people want to go there and sometimes there are misunderstanding with booking orders.

  • Upon arrival, the staff not friendly at all, almost felt like I was bothering him (the other two guys that were there at a different time was much better). There is NO ELEVATOR in the building and I had to drag my suitcase up 5 stories in dark/narrow/spiraling stairways. The room had a very old horrible smell. Common area almost non-existence. "Kitchen" is almost a joke. The only good thing about this place is it's location.

  • It was a fine hostel for the money. We just needed something in central. We slept in 16 (as I remember) persons dorm. The bed was fine. But the room smelled and was really hot. The toilet was ok. Not the best. But there is no room for relaxing or couches and stuff, which we missed. We only used the place for sleeping. But it is what it is. If you are looking for a cheap place to sleep this is it.

  • This hotel is not really the best place to be, but if you need a cheap place to stay for a few days its alright. The so called "kitchen" is basically a fridge and a microwave standing in thr middle of the bathrooms. There are no common-areas or a table where you could sit and eat. The whole hostel is quite dark, I stayed in the 20 bed dorm which was pretty loud and cold thanks to the emergency door facing the sidewalk. It felt like the people on the street were standing straight at my bed.

  • The staff was helpfull by showing us the way to our room(the room was in st.jakobstraat).The room was clean but no windows inside which means that we had no actual light.We had access to tram(1min walk from the room) but the Dam square was 4-5mins walk anyway.4/5 from me(in comparison with other Amsterdam hostels).
