  • Great place to stay if you are a 20 something backpacker looking to party. Otherwise, pay more and stay somewhere else.

  • Good value for money, not bad location, would definitely recommend staying here! The dorms are average but the bar makes up for it. It's really not as bad as everyone thinks it might be and they laugh out of being a budget hostel. I think id stay there again if I ever went back to Amsterdam :)

  • This hostel is very near to the city center and you can go to all the locations very easily from here. The atmosphere was really good as well. Overall I liked the place very much. The breakfast was really good for the day I booked and was included in the booking fees. I bathrooms weren't that nice. If you want to explore the inner city then this is the best place to stay.

  • The rooms were small and musty, the bathroom was minimal. The entire place had a strange smell. The common area was awesome, has a nice bar and restaurant with good food for good prices. Great location. Great security, have to show your key to get into the hostel, all rooms lock behind you, and the rooms have big lockers. Breakfast was good.

  • We weren't expecting too much when we booked this hostel in Amsterdam, and when we arrived, we found we were right. The hostel was dirty and the halls had an odd, musty smell. The cleaning staff was nice and came around regularly, but the smell persisted. I am normally not too picky about my hostels, but for the price we paid, this hostel was not worth it. My group of 7 had to split into two rooms and half of us got placed in what we deemed, "the dungeon". Drink specials were cool though.

    Hi , Thanks for your review! Please mind we are one of the cheapest hostels in the center of Amsterdam. We are a really basic hotel, but we provide everything you need during your stay. As we have limited large dorms, we sometimes have to divide a group in 2 rooms (positive side: you don't have to share 1 bathroom with 7 people). Greetings, Hans Brinker

  • Stayed for 2 nights. Had luck to stay in a room with nice people. Price is good compared to other places. Location not so close to center, but we did it all by walk and was not a problem. U can always get public transport, which is very convenient as well, but we just preferred walking/wondering about. Noise was not a problem, breakfast is excellent, happy hour beer at 2 euro. Not the best but definitely not the worst. They are very honest about their offer. Best price for what u get. Recommend.

    Hi, Thanks for your review! About our location, we are right in the middle of the center, but located in a quiet street. We are 3 min. away from entertainment area Leidseplein, around the corner from the main shopping street Leidsestraat and the museums at Museumplein. Please recommend us to all your friends and we hope to welcome you again soon! Greetings, Hans Brinker
