  • The Hostel was very easy to find and very central. I loved that there was no curfew and we could come and go as we pleased. We were in the other hostel, which is just around the Corner and the dorms were clean, but only cleaned every other day, the beds are clean and fresh but only Thing I would Change is make a comfortable common room and Basic cooking facilities, as I missed being able to make a cuppa or use a microwave.

  • Bob's is perfect for the younger traveler really hoping to get a feel for Amsterdam. Everyone was great and very nice...staff and guests.

  • It was freezing in our rooms! And I wish there were more outlets, but I think going into a hostel you know what to expect. The staff was amazingly kind though, even when I had to wake up a man to check us out at the wrong time- he was still very nice. If you are on a budget and you don't care where you stay- this is the place. Could have been better, but as a student looking for a hostel for a few nights-why not?

  • facilities not existing, i had to leave hostel at 7 am every day ,was not able to get even a cup of coffee before leaving the place which was rather inconvenient , as reception was opening only at 8 amt, and inability to have a dinner at the place was also irritating, as the all place is permeated with the smell of weed! the bathrooms weren't clean either ( constant smell of urine in the toilets and wetrooms) not good! on the positive side the staff rather friendly and the guest quiet

  • Decent facilities in a good location for exploring Amsterdam. Close to the Kalverstraat and Red Light District, a bit farther away from the likes of Anne Frank Huis and Rijksmuseum, but still in a walkable distance. Dorms have a fine size and are generally well kept. Showers a bit dirty. Great atmosphere in the lobby. Only downside is that we had to stay in another building a street away. Would recommend it if you are planning to save money on accommodation and explore Amsterdam.
