  • Great place to party. Not so much if you want to turn in early and wake up early. Breakfast starts late at 8:30am. Location of hostel is great. Lots of interesting people to meet.

  • This is definitely a party Hostel and you will have to deal with some noise to sleep, but its not thaaat much. It is really close to the Red Light and to Anne Frank's house, so the location is awesome. The breakfast was a good surprise! Althought simple, it was really good and things are never missing, Good value for money even if you are not there to party.

  • Very good hostel. Location is just perfect, in a nice area and quite close to the Central Station. Staff was nice and helpful. Very good breakfast for a hostel. The only downside is that my bedroom was a cubicle. It was a 4 dorms room and I could barely move in there for the lack of space. Everything else made up for it though. I would definitely stay there again.

  • Best Hostel EVER! Smoke room is like an awesome black hole that you never want to leave. The bar nearby is awesome, and there's always cool people hanging out in there. The staff is the definitely the best!!! Pinja especially, Mitch, Hayden, Guilia, everyone was perfect. Stay here if you can!

  • Nice hostel. Helpful desk staff and really good location- easy to find your way to both Amsterdam Centraal and the Dam, which is a good landmark for navigating the rest of the city. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Definitely a party hostel, but what else would you expect in Amsterdam? Only wish they had laundry, because the nearby laundromat is crazy expensive and kind of sketchy.

  • Amazing stay! Was here just for the weekend. Right by the train station and in the shopping area. Staff was great!

  • The location and staff are really great! It's only 5 minutes walk to Amsterdam Central, and very near from the Red Light District, bars and coffeeshop. Staff is very friendly and always has good recommendations. There's also a nice bar and smoking room so you can meet others travellers. My only negative point is that it's diificult to sleep in a dorm of 30 persons and more, but it's kind of normal. Just take a smaller dorm and it's perfect!
