Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.

Cost me about 85 euros a night which is pretty high to share a room with 11 other people! When I arrived they told me only cash even to pay for room! There are no lockers! Totally sketchy and it was so hot in the room it was like a suana! Ive never seen anything like this before.

This hostel was the cheapest I could find for a one-night-stay in Amsterdam. For 45€ in a 10-bed dorm, I expected much more. I booked via the website and when looking at it more closely later, I realized that it was very good at not showing any pictures of the actual bedrooms.

A group of my friends and I booked this hostel on a spontaneous weekend trip to Amsterdam.
It is overpriced for a hostel, even considering we booked last-minute. The rooms are not worth the price.

Like other reviewers said the place is small and cramped and located on a very b

If you are looking for the worst hostel in Amsterdam, look no more. The hostel is overpriced, the rooms are tiny, the staff is not exceptionally nice, and the breakfast is a joke. They will try to charge you almost for everything, and there is a 10 Euro deposit for the key, and i

A couple of questions; Are there lockers in the rooms for luggage or anywhere in the hostel? If not is there at least luggage storage at an extra charge? Also is this a hostel where you pay cash on arrival like many in Amsterdam?
can you book a room for just 2 people?
Hi guys I booked this hostel for march 2nd to 5th for 8 of us. They asked me to pay half up front. I said that was not stated when i was booking. They then asked me to pay 400 which I agreed and told them take it from my card I provided. They are saying they can't and to do a bank transfer? They have not provided me with bank account details. It all just seems a bit dodgy. Has anyone ever gone through same?
I picked this hostel! That is why I posted a Q on this hostel.......obviously.

Gente, como podem existir beliches sem escadas nesses hostels de Amsterdã? Isso é BIZARRO!
"Make sure you take rooms 3, 4, 7, 8, 11 or 12 - those don't face the busy street!"
"Don't book here."
"Floors 1 and 2 are the best choice. Prebooking is required!"
"If you want a good room, find a different hostel"
"Great Location!!"
