  • I enjoyed my stay here! The location is amazing, room was very clean, my roommates were super friendly. There isn't a bar or cafe so there wasn't such a social atmosphere. I do wish that there was so that I could have met more people. But I still had a great stay!

  • I do not like the skinny Asian guy who seemed to be the boss. He's a spaz and annoyingly flamboyant, like a hormonal woman about to pull her hair out. Everyone else at the front desk is phenomenal & informative. Kitchen staff & housekeepers have a negative attitude, but I don't blame them due to the volume of partying young adults & thankfully I only saw them when we crossed paths. The breakfast is worth the extra €5 but no options for vegans except for bread and jelly.

  • The location is very good. It is right next to the "I Amsterdam" sign and the surrounding museums. It is a 5 minute walk from down town and the red light district. I was impressed with the bathroom, the towels, and the WiFi. I also really liked the ability to store luggage. The beds were snuggly and soft.

  • The wi-fi doesn't work on the 3d floor. The staff need to learn how to smile and wish visitants a good stay.

  • The breakfast is fine. However, rooms could be a bit cleaner, but still ok.

  • This place was great. En-Suite rooms and towels provided were both great touches, and the lady we dealt with was pleasant, professional and very helpful. Our only issue was that when we stayed in an 8 bed that shouldn't really have been an 8 bed. I was uncomfortably close to the guy beside me. Aside from that the rooms themselves are really well kept.

  • It's a hotel with some hostel-converted rooms, so not the typical backpacker's hostel. It was very clean (I mean VERY) and easy to get to on public transit, right next to a tram stop - and a supermarket. Good if you want a convenient place to sleep and cleanliness and quiet is a priority.

  • I have been coming to Amsterdam for almost 7 years now. And have tried many different hostels in the mean time during the summer, winter and spring. Should say that the Hostel Van Gogh is clearly my favorite choice for several reasons: location, price, hygiene, quality of breakfast, staff, comfort of beds, free towels, free soap, clean bathrooms... I would highly recommend it to all, single and couples. XX
