Close to central station and tourist traps
My experience here was not bad. The check in/out was easy and the staff were all friendly. The hostel is convenient for wandering around Amsterdam central and is close to tons of shops and the central station also. The only negative part of the stay was that my roommates (tho friendly and one was cute) were soooo freaking loud when they were getting ready to sleep. I'm not really sure why or wth they were doing as I was hiding under the covers and trying to pass out. But even with herbal assistance, it was hard to fall asleep with their commotion. This might be normal when you're staying at a hostel I guess but def was on the upper end this time for noisey roomies. I was able to return the favor tho bc I had to get up at 445 am to catch my flight so yaaah.

Hostel is in a great location and the check in process was convenient! We rented a private room that was clean and had towels. There is no AC and it can get pretty humid in summer despite the fan. Don’t miss out on the 2 for 1 drinks offers at the bar everyday!!
Sundar, us1 night romance trip

Location: so close to the train station, shopping, and restaurants. Basically everything was within walking distance. Community: The hostel was strict about only allowing hostel guests in the building, which was great since in essence, protects your belongings (which you would lock up). There was a bar, smoking area, tv area, and pool table for guests choosing to stay in a mingle with other travelers. Staff: Were great! Very helpful with recommendations and even invited us to a drinking game within minutes of arrival. Rooms: Shared showers but everyone was respectful about picking up after themselves. Rooms got pretty warm with humidity (not pleasant), fans were in the room but it didn’t help the ones on top bunks (as heat rises to the ceiling). Amenities: hostel provided free breakfast, towels for a deposit upon return, and sold locks, adapters, pipes, and chargers in case you forgot yours!

Great hostel!
Travelling solo and my first trip to Amsterdam so the accommodation was chosen with this in mind and all round I had a great experience. Great service from the staff, clean and comfortable room & communal areas, perfect location and the chance to meet new people from all over the world in the smoking room & bar. So much fun I’m already planning my next trip and I won’t hesitate to book here again.

Unexpected reprise to a backpackers adventure.
Its pretty amazing as how central it was to everything. Amsterdam is not a huge metropolis, but the cold winds make the walk feel like forever. So being able to get everywhere and anything i needed within 3 mins walking. Location is impossible to beat. Cost is low but you give up on privacy, does not mean you cant upgrade rooms, just expect to pay more. The beds are bunk beds so not the comfiest but they work for people who just need the bare minimum.
