  • 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

  • There are safes to lock your wallet and passport in, but no lockers for your bag. The 8 bed is 4 bunk beds in a standard sized hotel room. It's a hotel/hostel so it's hard to meet other travelers. Really comfortable beds though and near a tram stop

  • Unpleasant Asian receptionist doesn't really care your presence in the hotel. Otherwise it's a good place to stay at, tho a little expensive. It's city center !

  • Nice hostel, easy to find. Not a party hostel but it's really close to the pub crawl (which was very good) so no need to worry if you want to party!

  • One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in Europe. Great location, tram/buses crossing the street from the hostel. The rooms were neat, they provided towels, AC, etc. I would definitely stay there every time I go to Amsterdam.
