There is one tiny downside to our LOCATION: we are located slap bang in the middle of the RED LIGHT DISTRICT! Anyhow, we don't think that it is that dangerous and the hostel has a HIGH safety standard. However, if you don't feel comfortable staying in this area, feel free to book somewhere else.
If this isn't a problem, you'll discover many upsides to our location:
- 3 mins walk from the train station
- 10 mins walk to the museums/river bank
- 15 mins walk to the city centre (shopping street)
And - we promise - you'll find the best international take-away food just around the corner.
Look out for our LAST MINUTE SPECIALS (each bed 19,- Euro one day before arrival), all you can eat breakfast and our seasonal specials.

See you in a tick!!
