  • Only one place to charge your phone in the 4 person room. Hostel is pretty far away from the city center. breakfast wasnt anything special but it was ok.

  • Everyone was very nice! Safe and clean place to stay. Liked how the dorms were separated by males and females. The location was very central and not a far walk from anywhere in the city.

  • Missed inform us at the reception about the messages, meetings that the hostel promotes day-to-day. Always discovered after hours. And one or two chairs in the rooms :) gave way to wedge or support anything.

  • Good place to stay. It's clean, secure and well located. The breakfast it's surprisingly good given that it's a youth hostel (French Toasts, pancakes, eggs... Delicious!). Although, this hostel is a Christian Hostel. Personally I don't care but I didn't know when I booked it and I think it's an important thing to say, especially when you go to the common room and you find a Bible in every table.

  • It is by the bus station which takes to Airport but little away from main attraction. If you want party stay towards dam square

  • Although it sits a little out of the city center, it's still well within walking distance of anything in the city. And if you prefer less hustle and bistle, this is perfect. It's alcohol and drug free, so if you're hoping to avoid or limit the partying atmosphere, this is great. Also, breakfast is free and they offer a lunch and dinner menu. Can't beat that.

  • A serene place to Amsterdam most of the sight seeing places are within walking distance so the location isn't a problem...the staff is very friendly and it was nice of them to pack breakfast even if you leave very early in the morning which is unlike the other hostels i stayed in Europe..only bummer is that you get wifi only in the common room & the login can get a little irritating.
