  • 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).

  • There was an older woman in my room who made me feel very uncomfortable. The price was awesome!!! It was a little spread out which was difficult when not all my friends were in my room. FANTASTIC location The lockers were small and I could not put all my stuff in it.

  • There was amazing friendly staff most of the time, there is one guy that works there, we didn't catch his name, however the other staff already knew who we were talking about, he needs some customer service skills, so that guests don't feel as though they are the problem for staying there, or needing help.

  • One room only in the hostel with about 30-40 beds, the kitchen is a microwave with a sink, unfriendly, atmosphere is tense, the toilets were awful to use (cramped and stunk) which are pretty much located in the kitchen, 4am curfew, there is someone there to let you in incase. Its expensive for the hole it is, pay an extra 10 or so a night an stay in a hotel

  • staff is very helpful, great location, good price, but there wasn't proper common room, it was a bit cold during the night and there weren't enough sockets.

  • Liked the architecture (it's basically just a rowhouse with a room on each floor) and location, but the beds were awful, and the kitchen set-up in the larger rooms is quite disruptive. Not sure I would return here.
