  • The hostel is well located and is not noisy. The facilities are good but were not very clean... There was dust all over the room walls an floor... :( The beds were clean and smelled good.

  • Hotel shares a street with a nursery - that makes for noisy mornings. Other than that the location is fantastic. Not too close to the centre to be impossible to sleep - but close enough to be able to really enjoy the city, as some key destinations are very close by (van Gogh Museum, Leidseplein, Reijksmuseum, i amsterdam sign..). The wifi isn't very reliable and should be improved. Beds are farily comfortable. Large showers.

  • Do not think the breakfast was worth the ten euros Creasy food fruit was mushy and looked old. Had breakfast once and after that went out in town to a much better satisfying breakfast and coffee

  • Like others have said, this is a converted hotel. I enjoyed my stay, because the location is fantastic, although this place doesnt really have a hostel vibe, given there is little common area. Just a dining room. The stairs are a deathtrap! Don't get caught descending them while you are not 100%. I stayed in both the 6Bed dorm and a private single. The ensuite bathroom was nice for the single. But was a bit problematic in the 6 bed dorm due to noise & alternating. There are no other bathrooms

  • The sheet had dots, that's one thing I didn't like really.

  • 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.
