  • 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.

  • The Hostel sold me an alarm clock that was brocked. I needed wake up at 8:00am to take the traim at 9:30. I wake up 9:00. I get take the traim, but I think was a big iresponsability of the hostel. But I like everething else in hostel. So, if you book it some bed there, carry your own alarm clock.

  • Staff were all lovely and super helpful, no complaints there at all! Lugging a 20kg suitcase up 2 flights of stairs because there's no elevator wasn't much fun though, there was no heating in our room, the ladders fell off the bunk beds as soon as you looked at them sideways and the shower head was non-adjustable and shot water straight over the faucet so it was impossible to get under it. The hostel was super cheap so you get what you pay for really but probably wouldn't go back.
