  • Location is good, right in the heart of the Red District, coffee shops and these kind of stuff. However, place wasn't very clean. Bar is good, with great beer and fairly good food.

  • So this hostel is in red light district and about 5 minutes away from central station. The hostel has a coffee shop and a restaurant where one can enjoy their smokes. the bar/restaurant has a great atmosphere and plenty of people party there and have a great time. the rooms are nice, but one bathroom/ one shower in the bedrooms. Which can be a negative if you take load shits. Since this hostel is in the red light district most people who come, come to party and get high.

  • I have been to hostels everywhere in the world (the UK, Belgium, China, Thailand, Malaysia, Germany) and it's by far the worst I've experienced. The staff is friendly though but that's the only positive point.

  • Although I'm a frequent visitor to Amsterdam this is the first time I've stopped at the bulldog. The hotel is in a great location and the rooms are a good size, well presented and clean. When we visited major work was underway in front of the hotel, this was very noisy and disruptive. Also worth noting is that the rooms werent cleared over the 3 days, there are no tea/coffee making facilities and you cannot smoke in your room.
