  • in the shower water does not drain properly, also breakfast was hard to find, since it is the hostel. Prices are much too high for the weekend, however, maybe it's like that everywhere in Amsterdam. The rest is quite normal.

  • Illegal hostel! Accepts only cash and refuses to provide an invoice. I contacted manager "Mohamed" by email (as suggested by Staff), and he drew a fake invoice in a Word document, and after complain he drew another fake invoice, this time in PDF format, following again no regulations. Not to mention that hostel was dirty, bad smell, no common area, and breakfast was in another hostel (bread and jam).

  • Super seedy hostel. It is a tiny building overall, easily missed from the street, feels cramped and unkempt. Stinky hallway after the front door. Had a 'private room' ten feet from the front desk. Uncomfortably noisy. Walls were pastel orange, marked black and chipped. Had a big mirror in the room with a big crack in it. Bathroom stinks, I think the smell comes from the pipes. Felt like a third world hostel. Beds were just thick foam pads, no springs. Not the level of class I was expecting.

  • It is really a hostel just to go to sleep, beds are clean and bathroom as well. The problem is that it doesn't have any kitchen or common area. So if u are budget traveler it isn't the best choice because u will have to eat outside. Breakfast is included byt ut is very poor, but I guess for 10euros u can't ask for more.

  • Only takes cash. 10 Euro key deposit. Not near the center and more expensive then hostels in the center. Breakfast in another building a few blocks away. Only had bread, jam, peanut butter, and nasty coffee. Not even a toaster. One night we came in and there was someone sleeping in my friends bed. We were only offered new sheets, not an apology.
