I visited this hotel in february 2016, it was a really good stay, very nice hotel, great breakfast! Owners were very friendly. They took the time to give us tips on our trip in Amsterdam and guided us to good places, nice restaurants and great pubs! I would totally book again to this hotel if i visit Amsterdam again!

Staff were wonderful, get what you pay for with the rooms and although the location is ideal for most it wasn't my first choice, would advise people to stay more outside the city and it lets you see more.

Very poor hostel for the price. Arrived at the hostel at 11 PM after a long day of traveling and were dragged into a conversation about the US presidential election with the man behind the desk when he found out that my party was from the US. After we were enlightened about US current events, we were given our keys... More

It was absolutely central, in the heart of the red light district!!! I had a bed in a 8 people room, the view was astonishing, it goes directly to the canal, the price was the cheapest that anyone could find for a decent place in the centre, and it was more than decent. The only thing that I disliked was... More

This place, although being manned by the most lovely and welcoming man ever, totally left me in utter disappointment! We checked in, no problems, and went to the room. The room was very small, that's ok, and had a separate room with a private toilet, sink and shower which was ok too. Problems were this; there was so much dust... More

Excellent location to visit Amsterdam. Spacious room and clean bathroom. Not the best staff, except the lady from the breakfast. Don't ask to stay on high floor, it is a really hard work to get to the room (more than 70 steps and no lift). Not the worst for 3 nights sleep but TOO EXPENSIVE.

I wouldn't recommend this hostel to my worst enemy and to be quite honest would have felt safer seeping on the street. The staff were rude and tried to overcharge us. There were absolutely no security measures and the doors to the rooms were not secure as we discovered when we returned from a day exploring the city to find... More

Just arrived home after spending 2 nights in the Heart of Amsterdam. Upon arriving, the guy working at reception tried to overcharge us several times. He kept asking for additional amounts of money, and provided no proof of payment. He seemed intent on confusing us as much as possible in order to charge us extra money. Reading the reviews this...

6 of us stayed in the bunk bed star wars themed room. Quite spacious considering there was 6 of us in there each with our own light and storage area. Nice and clean room and clean and tidy bathroom. Very reasonably priced in an excellent location to visit amsterdam. Would definitely recommend and go again :-)

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
