DON'T STAY HERE!!!!! My group and I checked in here and no more than 3 hours of being there and leaving to get dinner, someone broke in to our room and stole some belongings. The staff claimed that everyone going in and out of each room is closely watched and aren't allowed up to the rooms without a key. They...

Stayed here with a friend as a last resort as we forgot to book a hostel in advance. We paid thirty euros each, by far the most expensive room I've ever stayed in in any country.. For this we received a mouldy room, a communal area that appeared to have never been cleaned, and a 'shower' comprising a pipe coming...

Hostel Aroza is the most terrible hostel I've ever seen. The hostess is a kind woman, but that's all. The room was dirty, just as the linnen. The shower didn't work at all and the toilet wasn't clean. We regret our stay in Hostel Aroza.

I decided to have an overnight adventure in Amsterdam and I had no prior reservations in any hotel or hostel. Good thing that I was able to find Hostel Aroza in Nieuwendijk, quite near the Centraal Train Station. The rate is only 30 euro per night and it was definitely a good deal considering Amsterdam is quite expensive. The view...

Rooms relatively clean and spacious. However, owner is constantly drunk and/or high, so don't expect to get any help with issues you may have. Having said that, reception staff always friendly. Drinks relatively cheap, too. Worth the price for location alone, though.

I came across this one and luckily I could book a room for one night. I wasn't expecting too much from this hostel,...

Hstel Aroza is the perfect location for exploring the central part of Amsterdam. I stayed with a friend for the weekend and would definitely stay again. Beds were comfortable and although there was no wifi in the bedrooms, there was downstairs and wasn't an issue. Close to all amenities. Walking distance to everything. Bathrooms clean enough, after all the negative...

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
