    Excellent location, as its a walking distance from train station. And walking distsnce to most of iconic places, Anne Franks museum, Rembrand museum, van Gogh, flower market. I stayed in single room, at the top floor, view is nice and room also complete with water heater to make tea and coffee. I love it a lot !

    Good Place for A Hostel”

    For the price I paid as a solo traveler, it was worth it. Staff was friendly and helpful. In addition, the hostel was 5 minutes away from the main train station. My biggest pet peeve was that my hostel bathroom (4 person suite) wasn't cleaned on a daily basis. It smelled a little.

    I booked for 6 people dormitory. The room and the toilet was clean. But only the problem was since its a mixed dormitory, my last night there was I had to sleep with 5 men. I was the only girl inside the room which is not good. I wish there will be a room for female only, that would be great. It’s a nice stay though.

    Good”

    It's one night stay at the youth hostel, they have good facility, comfortable bed and clean toilet & good breakfast too. The only thing that surprise me that it is a shared dormitory & shared bathroom (which i never expect when booking), and the guy shared the room with us had smoke marijuana (he not having in the room, but you know the smell will stay for quite sometimes), thus i find it was very uneasy for me to sleep with the strong smell in the room.

    Loved it!”

    Probably one of the best hostels I've stayed at. You need to have a key card to get in so I always felt very safe. You walk straight into the bar so you feel welcome from the get go. All of the staff were amazing and super friendly. A lot of them hung around after their shifts so it was easy to sit down and have a drink with them. Excellent kitchen facilities. Loads of communal areas where you could meet people. I stayed in an 18 bed dorm but there was plenty of space. They have activities on every night so there was always something to do and someway to meet people. Best thing was the smoking room. So good to be able to have a smoke, meet people and then crash when you were done! When I come back to Amsterdam I'll be staying here again!

    Not worth the money (private room)”

    The location is superb, the staff is friendly and helpful, but the private room is bare minimum. No closet, no shelves, not even a bar with hangers. The bathroom had no shower plate and the floor had the wrong slope, so the water flooded almost the whole bathroom. The water pressure was very low. I was told all the private rooms are the same thing. Maybe the shared rooms are OK. There should be separate valuations for shared and private rooms.
