The location is excellent, opposite the main city park, the staff are super helpful and charismatic and the rooms and bathrooms are well cleaned. The breakfast is a bit poor but for € 3.00 it is a good deal. Anyway, I recommend!More

I’ve stayed in Amsterdam 3 times before and this hostel was the best location. Across the road is Vondelpark and down the road are shops and restaurants. The opposite direction down one road is Van Gogh/Rijksmuseum and a supermarket. Everything else is within 30min walk....More
