  • Everything was perfect until we met this bald-headed staff. He had a very annoying behaviour. All other staff was nice. The location of the hostel was perfect.

  • it was very dirty, thus we didnt use the toilet the entire week there because they didnt clean it once.also i had blood and sweatstains on my sheets and the bunkbeds where very fragile. other then that the staff was friendly when we checked in but they where out of locker keys so we had to hide our luggage under the bed, Out roomies where super friendly tho and the location was perfect.

  • Les chambres pas mal dans l'ensemble, mais ils ne nettoient jamais c'est hyper sale, sous les lit il y a de la poussière accumulée depuis des années, la femme de chambre ne nettoie rien, je suis resté une semaine et ils n'ont pas nettoyé une seule fois, les toilettes puait tellement que c'était presque impossible de les utiliser. Et un du personnel est trop antipathique, il est horrible, on avait presque envie de repartir quand il nous a reçu. Aucun respect !

  • Overall a positive experience, thanks to the very friendly and helpful staff. It would be nice to have some anti-bac in the bathrooms, since there are no sinks there. Also, soap in the shower room would be nice.

  • Dangerous place ! I was attacked in my room by a guy i did not know coming in from the street ! No provocation at all from my side. I consider myself an experienced traveler, including third world countries, but I've never experienced anything remotely crazy as this. To think that the only reason for it was that i looked out from my room window at the wrong time, makes it even more scary, because if it happened to me it can literally happen to anyone. You can read more on the tripadvisor page.

  • I didn't like bobs youth hostel. had a big bag with me so I had already decided from the start to put it in a locker but unfortunately they didn't sell padlocks. I find this weird because they probably get this question like, at least two times per day. Why not make the effort and actually sell some yourself? 2nd problem was checking out. My plane was leaving 7 am so had to be there at like 5.30 am. Asked for an early checkout at 4.30 and they refused. They were so rude to me. Don't stay here.

  • The hostel's in a very good location near to the train station. We stayed in the building across the street from the reception in a 16 bed dorm. There was very little atmosphere about the place and the toilet and shower facilities were very poor. The staff there were unhelpful and it's very over-priced.

  • Unfriendly staff, 16-bed-dorm without a window that could be opened (it was terribly hot in the room as a result), toilets and showers were dirty, no toilet paper, it was not possible to lock the closet door, because the door knob was broken (the staff did not care about that after we told them), just one shower and one toilet for 16 girls, mould in the bathroom, unfriendly atmosphere in the common room (dark, over-crowded): pls do not choose this hostel

  • Pretty fine hostel central to a lot of the main sights on Amsterdam. Average rooms for an average price. Probably would stay again if the staff's attitude was better
