  • If it wasn't for the stairs I'd have no complaints whatsoever! But they were awful, more like a ladder, not good for anyone with joint problems or massive suitcases - there was no warning about them. Everything else was fantastic, especially location and value for money.

  • We were to girls visiting Amsterdam for the first time and the hostel was perfect for us. It is clean, very quiet and we had good nights in our 10 bed room..

  • Conveniently located to the Centraal Station. The front desk area was kind of depressing and didn't set me in high hopes for the room. I was pleasantly surprised that it was clean, though it was super-minimal. Not worth the hundred dollars a night I was charged, though.

  • 50 euros for a bed in a 10 peole room is greedy... Perfect location and good beds, that's it

  • The place is very difficult to find (is hidden in an alley in the center of the city) but is really good: good price, decent rooms and beds (inner bathroom + shower which is pretty new). Right in the center so it's really good as a starting point in the morning for taking a walk around the city in the morning and then have a few drinks in the night and come back to sleep (without having to use any public transportation or having to walk for miles if you're in the center).

  • Perfect location, no lounge area which was disappointing as we would of liked to make our own food but none the less can not complain as the price was so good

  • very friendly staff, i would even say it is a clean place. however, the lackness of common space to hang was bad. adding shower curtains will add a lot for bathroom conditions.. once the first one takes a shower the whole place looks like Sea World..
