  • The staff at the desk weren't overly helpful in giving us information, just checked us in and gave us a key. No details about towels, if there was a common room (I don't think there was, maybe there was one upstairs?) the location was great - right in the middle of the most touristy section we found. Good walking distance to a lot of the things we wanted to see. It's a minutes walk to the Nationals monument. Having something for breakfast or even free coffee would really make it better.

  • I have found it strange that although 2 weeks before my arrival and amount was deducted from my bank account for my stay, and then another amount was deducted during arrival - this make my stay at the hostel very expensive - more than advertised. I am now struggling to get the first amount back again from my bank - so far without any luck

  • Central Station Hostel has very steep staircase. Let me describe it, the width of each step is not long enough to put your foot straight, you have to put your body and luggage weight on the front part of your feet.

  • So the guy from the staff is very friendly, despite stucked in his little space under the stairs. So when you entered the hostel you'll see 2 huge very inclined stairs rows. Climb one and you'll get to the staff place. Two rooms are on this floor. Mine was quite spacious, bright, clean, user-friendly & comfy. it's just pity that there is no common lounge to chill out with people as it exists in regular hostels.

  • If you're looking for a cheap place to sleep this place is perfect. However, not really ideal for hanging out or staying in.

  • The location of the Hostel is just perfect. I stayed in a 10 beds room and it felt small. The hostel hasn't kitchen or a convivial room. So, for me, was just for sleep and hygiene.

  • A lot of noise, because of a restaurant kitchen just downstairs. Stairs quite dangerous ! Excellent placement.

  • Awesome location! Two minute walk from Dam Square, Red Light District and all the major shops! Friendly staff carried our luggage all the way to our dorm on the top floor. Rooms were clean!
