  • Generally speaking, it's a nice experience to stay at Amsterdam Hostel. The location of the hostel is very close to Downtown SF and Chinatown. I think it's very convenient to buy some food here. And also I meet some great roommates.

  • The breakfast could be a bit more extensive and it actually kind of smelled like pee in my bedroom. (room 402) But the last problem could be easily solved I guess :)

  • I've stayed in numerous hostels over the years, and this was definitely one of the worst experiences I've had.The man working the front desk during my check in was outrageously rude and made some insensitive comments to me. There was dust all over my room, gathering in piles in the corners, the mattress was broken and slopped toward the center, and the walls are extremely thin- I was awoken multiples times each night from people going up and down stairs. I will NEVER stay here again.

  • Room needs to be. Tidied more often. ....carpet in common areas /stairwell ...rarely vacuumed/ they need to reach a deal with. A car park better than the one they have//the breakfast is deplorable and most importantly ...they need more cleaning staff because the poor. Two ladies I met cleaning there were. Completely run off their feet ...I believe it maybe just too much of a money making exercise for the management. Where they cut costs. ...because sf has limited accom of this type

  • In a central location for touristy things. Really easy to walk to trains, buses and cable cars. The dorm rooms are a little crammed with 6 people and not many power outlets. Common areas are a nice space to chill but the hostel doesn't really have a social atmosphere. It's a good place to stay for location and basic needs, but don't expect much more.

  • Everyone was nice, many foreign travelers. I like that a kitchen is offered to cook dinner in but the kitchen was quite dirty. I was glad the bathrooms were clean with hot water but my sheets had several strands of straight black and blond hair in them. It wasn't mine because I'm african american with course thick hair so I didn't trust anything after that. The pillows were fluffy and soft but I slept on the top bunk bed which was life threatening every time I used the half ladder to get down.
