Decent place, good location, good people

Location, People, and value for money
I stayed in the men's dorm of 6 when staying by myself. It was good to meet new people. It was very functional and nothing fancy. I then moved to a 3 sleeper room when my friends arrived. The bathroom was better in the 3 sleeper. But still just a really functional place to stay. The common area was average as there was no bar.

Safety box provided was a perk. Clean

First time staying in a hostel. Went as well as could be expected. Knowledgable staff. Located in RLD but I never felt unsafe. Basic basic breakfast. Go to the market

Great Value for Money

Big rooms, breakfast
The hotel was located in the middle of the red light district, but it felt safe and clean enough. The breakfast provided was 3Euro,which offers a spread of coffee, tea, eggs, cereal, bread, ham and cheese. For 3 Euro, it was quite a deal. The rooms are of a decent size. The only complain I had was the intermittent wifi which kills. The coverage in the room was patchy and sometimes it was so slow that for hours I couldn't load a single webpage. The problem was not only restricted to the room, but the whole hotel.The place would have been perfect if not for the poor wifi.

Really budget place & clean. Location good.

Budget & location
This is my very first time to stay in dormitory of 8 people. Room is clean and on 3rd floor thru some extremely small and steep staircase. Really budget & comes with simple breakfast. Location is extremely close to the red light with just few shop away. Noise is NOT from outside but within the people that stay in the dorm! For light sleeper is not recommend as people will comes back after mid-nite or early morning and will wake u up with the noise! Big safe is provide beside bed to lock a lot of stuff. Value for money minus the noise!

Great location in the red light district

Location, Location, Location
Hard to beat the location of this hotel, it's right in the heart of the red light district. Our twin room had great views of the street from our window, very interesting area. The room & hotel were a bit dated, but the bed was comfortable and everything more or less worked. Breakfast was quite good. Only complaint was that the room felt a bit dirty, and it was quite expensive but that's amsterdam for you.
