  • Excellent location, nice staff and good cleanliness. If I'll return to Amsterdam I would stay there.

  • The hostel in itself isn't terrible but the beds are uncomfortable (my friend's bed was broken and the reception didn't do anything). Even though it is very well located, the staff isn't nice and the cleaning lady stole my jeans (very poor in security!!!). 40€ per night is ridiculous

  • location was great being across the road from central station and in my opinion is the only benefit, the hostel lacked atmosphere as there is no space to hang out, if you just want a bed for the night then this is for you.

  • Extremely noisy, in 2 nights I could only sleep 4 hours. Random people were allowed to sleep on the floor, so instead of a 20-bed-bedroom, it has been 22. For those, there were only 5 electricity plugs, so it was difficult to charge phone/laptop. Only few showers, but surprisingly that worked well and they were regulalry cleaned by the very nice hostel personnal. The location was really good, and bedlinen and towels included in the price.

  • Not bad just for sleeping. FYI they don't have kitchen or living room.

  • Not really a party-friendly hostel. You're not allowed to drink alcohol there; and there is no common areas to gather.

  • My girlfriend and I stayed at Aivengo from May 2 to May 9 of 2015. The price and centralized location were excellent. The staff were very courteous and helpful. With regard to the bathroom and shower facilities, I did not mind them. They were always clean and I did not have to wait too long to use them. The bunk beds were adequate, although the pillows could have been better. The only issues I had was that some people did not obey the rules with regard to the noise and alcohol.

  • Overall no complaints. I thought the location was great for how inexpensive it was to stay there. I'm glad they offer all female dorms as I was traveling alone, and I didn't really have any issues. Didn't love the stairs but I know that can't be changed and is part of the Amsterdam charm!

  • I stayed in the 4th floor female dorm and I would definitely book here again. This room had all non-bunk beds, lockers, one bathroom and a cozy atmosphere for a hostel. Walk outside the door and you can see Centraal. BUT - DON'T leave your bags with reception after checkout time. When we picked them up, we didn't have to identify ourselves or our bags. Anyone could have taken our stuff. Also our soft bags were stuffed under huge suitcases - good thing we didn't have anything fragile.
