  • The best part about the place is that it is very close to a number of tourist spots. Chinatown, City Hall, the Symphony Hall all are very close by. Perfect place if you just have to crash for the night. Try to avoid walking down Taylor street during the evening though. Does not feel very safe. You can always take buses, there are quite a few bus stops near the hostel

  • one of the guys working on the reception was kind of really stupid, other than this if you are not expecting something more than a hostel it's good for you. Good downtown location, accessible to everywhere. They have coffee/tea and crepe for breakfast.

  • The room was OK. Except the actual location of the room. It was right next to the community kitchen and the eating area. It kind of felt like the room for people who would work there. The staff was nice, but I really didn't think they needed to remove our bedsheets after the first night. When I spoke to the front desk, I learned they should not have been in the room until after we left. So everyone felt a little "violated" with all our stuff out and no lockers or safe in he room.

  • I didn't go but they charge me the same cause I didn't remember to cancel the reservation and they not even call.

  • Although Amsterdam Hostel has a great location, atmosphere was sub-par and the breakfast option (making your own pancakes) was less-than-ideal. Good value for the money though.

  • Got bed bugs!! Even brought then back home. Search an awful experience. Really disappointed by the manager that seamed to find this normal and did bit even offer a price reduction. A member of the staff took this so litly that told me "I just have to put moisturizing cream"
