Very good 8.2 From 724 reviews

Good 6.0
OK but a little sketch
The ladies that work at the cafe are nice. Bed is too short for anyone 6 ft 1 or more. Way too many Morrocans just hanging out near the exit and entry at night, they are not hotel guests. My roommate would turn the light on past 10 and perform 1 of his 5 daily prayer rituals which was just a little bit off putting.

Make the bed and give me a towel
I like generator hostels generally. This was good overall but I do not want to make my own bed! And please provide a towel. If you can do these things in Miami you can do them in Amsterdam

Very good 8.0
Brilliant value for money stay
The generator is always a fun place to stay. This amsterdam one is no exception. It’s in a good location, close to tram stops and is situated on the border of a beautiful park. It has friendly staff, a good vibe, good food and is reasonably priced. Rooms are basic but clean. Would definitely recommend.
David, za4 night trip
Poor 2.0
The facilities charge you for every single thing. I feel like they're trying to pay their enormous rent by over-charging for everything. The rooms are small. And the bunkbeds do not feel safe - you have to be very careful because I seriously cut up my leg on the ladder.
Maria, ie2 night trip
Very good 8.0
Friendly and clean accommodation. Close to public transport. Am used to accommodation where payment is for entire service. Here, only the bed shower and toilet provided in price. Towels extra - as this was not detailed in listing they did provide for free when I explained my expectation. Breakfast great 1st day, awful the 2nd day - so chef skills very variable.
Karen, nz2 night family trip
Poor 2.0
Not great
The hotel was not very good. The rooms are small and do not include basic items like towels and soap, the food at the restaurant was not very good and there was a club in the basement that was very loud and made it difficult to sleep. If you are looking for a place to party this might be a good option, however if you are looking for a nice hotel to rest after a long day of travel, I would not choose this hotel.

Exceptional 10.0
Really great hostel, very clean and organized. I love how they had a restaurant/bar within the hostel to grab food whenever you’re hungry. Check-in and check-out was seamless and overall a good experience.

Very good 8.0
Lovely stay. Small room
Great service from the reception staff. They sell all sorts that you might have forgotten to bring. We stayed in the private 4 bed room (1 bunkbed and 2 singles), it was a lot smaller than I expected in comparison to the photos. The rooms doesn't come with the essentials, like shampoo, shower gel and towels. The mattress was more comfortable than expected from first impressions. The cafe serves really nice breakfast. There is plenty of space to relax and chill in the building. There was a club downstairs open the Saturday night, we didn't attend but we heard it whilst coming into the building and slightly from the room on the first floor.
