  • 1. If you have a reservation and pay some money by credit card, they are blocked all money (for staying at room) on your account plus you must pay CASH before they give you a keys. Effect is: you are looking euronet, and your rommates are waitng for the keys in very small corridor.

  • The location was good - extremely accessible by tram which is an easy way to get around - & was close to the Albert Cuyp market. They provided a nice basic breakfast. Minimal cooking facilities (just a microwave) & tiny bar fridge. I'm a small person but beds were small even for me (too skinny and short), no ladder for top bunks (just a wooden box) & nothing to stop me falling out EITHER SIDE. Room was too crowded with 8 beds. Not bad for the price but just know what you're getting

  • Free breakfast is a bit of a stretch for what this place serves. It is bread with peanut butter and jam. No toast, there is no toaster there. Very disappointing. Otherwise the wifi was increadibly slow and very spotty. First time hostel goer here so I may be describing the norm but from accounts of other people staying at this hostel it was one of the poorer ones. I can give it that it was in a good location, the bars around it were really fun and it's a nice walk to the centre.

  • There are no lockers included. The location is decent but there are many more central hostels in Amsterdam. The night staff was unfriendly. The atmosphere was nothing special, and the kitchen facility has no hob and very little crockery. It was the cheapest we could find, so the value was OK.

  • Nicely situated, quiet neighborhood, tram stop just in front of the entrance, kind and well-informed staff. A bit boring inside, but that's not why one visits Amsterdam, right?

  • A bit run down, it was a place to sleep and take a shower. "Breakfast" was bread, no toaster, with butter, jam and peanut butter. While I would consider going back given the location relative to the RAI convention center, I likely would look at alternatives.

  • It was nice with free, good breakfast. If you don't like cats, don't go there, because they are in the house. There is no lockers but none got robbed.
