"Great location great staff"
Great location near the museum the bulldog and pubs some minor issues with the bathroomGenuine Expedia guest review
"Convenient location walking distance to Leidsplein"
Conveniently located, clean rooms but a bit overcrowd. Assignment of beds to guests is confusing. New guests are given a bed already occupied by another guest. Shortage of bed sheets and comforters.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice except lacking outlets. Only 3 outlets in the room and they were all next to the light switch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Would stay again if strapped for cash."
Nice staff, excellent location. I stayed in the 4 person dorm for 3 night, it wasn't cleaned very well throughout my stay evident by garbage left from guest on day 1 still there on day 3. Also the bathroom was with the toilet and had no shower curtain, so the whole room would fill up with water when anyone showered leaving a big watery mess. There are […] lotttssss of narrow stair and no lift so beware, but the staff nicely took my bags up for me. Towels cost extra. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Grubby, no facilities, breakfast not worth having, no card reader to pay bill. Woken up by staff at 4 in the morning. was recommended this by a friend and we have had words about it, never again.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Worst hotel staying"
Although I specifically asked for a smoking room, they never bothered to tell me it was a non-smoking hotel. I missed the no smoking sign at the back of the door (hidden) and the guy rushed in my room and started yelling at me, also asked for 100 euro deposit in case I destroyed his 50 year old bedsheets. Expensive, loads of stairs to climb, simply […] terrible Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An unpleasent alternative to sleeping inthe gutter"
Located on a busy and all night, all week, noisey tourist street. Mounted on top of a coffeshop where the air fills with the smell of weed and the shouting of bouncers. Is this sorry excuse for a "hotel". I'm not sure if it was the stoned guy demanding cash who checked us in or if it was the fact that our supposed bunkbed had been split into two beds, […] in order to cover up a barf stained carpet.. That first gave us cause to think that this hotel was not entierly up to any kind of standard. The room facing the street lacked any kind of soundproofing from both inside and outside the hotel. Which where both, as formentioned, very loud environments. The bathroom smelled of weed, the shower lacked a curtain and the peculiar toiletbowl where of such a design that if you fealt like taking a number two, your excrement would fall upon a shelf of sorts allowing you to give it a thurough inspection before flushing it down. Also the staff dont make beds or clean in your room during your stay and towels have to be rented at an additional cost. All and all, this is a really bad place with shadey staff and unless you are there to party hard for no more then 2 or three days and aren't interested in sleeping untill 6 in the morning in whatever conditions that aren't the gutter. I would not choose this hotel for my visit to amsterdam. 1/10 and the one because I atleast didn't see any vermin skittering around. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Very dirtyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
a very filthy hostel! really really bad. the room was never cleaned in the 2 nights I was there. the bathroom was filthy, the shower wasn't working. to avoid at all costs.Genuine Expedia guest review
Best thing, it's convenient, close to Leidseplein. But other than that, it is disappointing. The dorm room shower leaked onto the floor. Because it is close to the action, it's very noisy. And worst of all for me, they don't take debit or credit cards. The staff is friendly, but can't do much to help you.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Too expensive for the value"
I have been in many hostels around the world so I am trying to be fair with this hostel. First, I was charged 50 Eur per night for an 8 bed dormitory which I think it's too much even though it was a special date. Second, I had to wait 30-60min to check in. Third, the room was ok but the place is so small for so many people so the air is too thick. Four, […] the breakfast is a joke for that money and you have to go to a different hostel.

在博物館區旁，交通便利，但因為青年旅舍，設備較舊，要爬很陡的樓梯，不適合有手提行李箱入住，有附吐司麵包夾菓醬的早餐。房內只有暖氣設備，靠開窗戶透氣！很純的背包客旅舍！不刷卡！Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Boa Localização. Muito simples. Limpeza Ruim"
Pontos Positivos: - Boa Localização. - Recepcionistas atenciosos. Pontos Negativos: - Não possui area de convivência. - Não possui cozinha disponível. - Sem elevador. Escada íngrime (se for com mala pesada, vai sofrer para subir as escadas); - Quartos e banheiros pequenos. - Limpeza horrível de Quartos e Banheiros (tenho a impressão que não foram limpos […] durante toda minha estadia) - Café da manhá é em outro hostel a um quarteirão, até aí tudo bem, o problema é que o café da manhã só tem cafe, leite, pão e geleia. Confesso que só comi uma vez.. prefiri ir para o Starbuks. - Wi-fi funciona fraco ou nem funciona nos quartos. Tive que varias vezes correr até o corredor buscando o sinal.

Das Zimmer war sehr klein und schmutzig; es gab keinerlei Ablageflächen außer dem Fensterbrett welches stark verstaubt war; während der 5 Tage, die ich da war, wurde der volle Mülleimer auch im Bad nicht einmal gelehrt; das Bad war schimmelig und so konsturiert, dass nachdem jemand geduscht hatte man nicht trockenen Fusses zur Toilette kam; die Türen […] quietschten so erbärmlich dass alleine dadurch ein Durchschlafen auch mit Oropax unmöglich war Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
ELVないのでアムス特有の急な階段に困惑！ホテルのお兄さんが手伝ってくれたけど。自分が泊まった部屋のうちの1つは排水溝が詰まってて、言ったけどやっぱり詰まったままで、最終的には浴室の外に水が溢れた(笑)他の部屋はバスタブ付だから大丈夫だったけど。ベッドも2段ベッドなのにハシゴがなくて上り下りが面倒。。立地的にはアムス中央駅からは遠いけどLeidse広場がすぐそばなので便利っちゃー便利。でもそれ故にパブとかの勧誘がウザすぎ！総合的に見てももっとイイトコたくさんある。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Si vous n'avez rien trouvé d'autre"
Chambre très négligée avec 3 petits lits très inconfortables. Bruyant jusqu'à 2 heures du matin. Cheveux dans le lavabo, wc à peine propre, pas de linge de toilette, petit déjeuné à l'extérieur, ... bref, à éviter sauf si pas le choix.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Der Angestellte an der Reception war zwar sehr freundlich, aber total stoned. Das Zimmer war schmutzig, stank übelst, das Bett war schmuddelig und voller Flecken. Das Haus ist klein, eng (mit grossen Gepäckstücken schwierig zu betreten) und wirkt sehr alt.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Ofrecen una habitación a precio de hotel y con condiciones de hotel, pero es un hostal sin ninguna comodidad y muy desaseado.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Comfortable and clean hostel. The breakfast is a block away and is simple: butter, jam and peanutbutter. What is really good about this hostel is the location and the people working there. They will go out of their way and help you with anything. Friendly and always happy. I will definitely return.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Small but Quiet and well located"
11/15/14 Juan Alberto C
Best part of this place is the staff (could not forget medina!) nice people and they give you great tips from amsterdam. Its surronded by bars and restaurants, and is near of museums and 30 minutes from the square and red light district.
11/03/14 Maya G La Rochelle, France
This place is awful. The rooms are small and there are too many beds. It gets stuffy and gross. It's also a fire hazard because there's no fire escape. The last night I stayed there, my bed had been used by someone else and unclean. The guy at the reception gave me new linens and did not offer to change the sheets for me. I asked for complimentary water and he said no. Honestly better hostels include: the Christian hostel or Big bulldog. They are cheaper and in a better location. This is the worst hostel I've stayed at. Not worth the money. Find a better one even if it is a little bit more expensive.
"Love this place!"
I have never stayed at the hotel but this is my favourite coffee shop in Amsterdam, very cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Lots of drinks to choose from, they make a delicious hot chocolate with cream! Staff are very polite and friendly. Would recommend :)

Tried to cancel booking 10 minutes after making it, due to sudden change of plans beyond my control. Was charged booking fee and €70 for room (6 bed mixed dorm) I was not able to use. Would not recommend.
"Depends what you want to do in Amsterdam"

Not that good, especially for the money, but Amsterdam is very expensive. Tiny, noisy, shared room. Vilest bathroom I've ever seen. Pathetic breakfast arrangements. You get what you pay for. Paid for s
"Decent accomodation for backpackers"
09/13/14 BEN C Mexico City, Mexico
It covers the essentials. Small mixed rooms with shared bathroom. Bike rental is around the block. There's a cozy coffeeshop in the first floor of the building and it is NOT connected to the hostel, which I think it's cool if you're really looking for a good time sleep at a hostel. Just as the name says so the hostel is in Uptown, but do not dismiss it. It is a good middle point between Downtown, where the Red Light District is and most of the coffeeshops, and the Museumplein or Museum District. Both are on a 20-30 min walking distance.

The hostel staff was very friendly and helpful, room I was staying in was quite small and the bathroom was tiny - it was clean but could use a little refreshing. Hostel location is great, lots of bars nearby! Overall very nice hostel!
"For 5 EUR a night, not too bad"
08/25/14 smalltime0 Perth, Australia
We knew what to expect before going to this hostel. There are a myriad of reviews around the internet detailing just what it is like. The entry staircase is too narrow and is exceptionally steep. The staircase going up to the other floors is even narrower and steeper. The rooms are fairly small, and the beds aren't long enough for fairly tall people (6' up), which is weird given how tall the Dutch are on average. The breakfast is in another building, and is hardly worth attending. The bathroom in our room had no shower recess, and there was clearly mold growing on the walls. On the plus side, the reception staff were very friendly and very happy to point out places of interest on the map. The surrounding area is filled with restaurants, bars and "coffee shops", and is in the middle of Amsterdam. Probably wouldn't stay there again, but like I said in the title - I only paid 5 EUR a night and don't regret spending that amount of money.
"Service has to be improved"
08/06/14 Pang W Antwerp Province, Belgium
I believe this hostel was way too far expensive, 52 eur per night and also other negativ things I want to mention... I 've been travelling to many hostels in Europe, and never had to pay more than 30 EUR, which the service and accomodation is really good as well. In this hostel u even can not pay with credit card... I had to go back for an ATM machine and wasted so much time. I really don't understands why there is still creditcard stickers, sticked on the reception desk or window? It is absolutely controversary. I was also almost charged more than the regular price that I still had to pay to them, which I fortunately could figure out by myself. SInce I told the Italian receptionist that there was a mistake with the sum, he called so long to his boss to ask for the right correction! I was again wasting my time. I was wondering if every guest was also extra charged for their stay in this hostel!? ACCOMODATION Possitiv things: The rooms were clean, beds were good, internet wifi superfast. The only thing that I really worried about was the safety bar which was not physically on every top bed. If I was rolling in my sleep I could fall so hard on the floor. Also no ladder to climb up to the upper bed. There was one private toilet for 6 people in the room. However, if u really need the toilet and this was occupied for 15 min, u have to rush down to use another bathroom. Very inconvinient since the room is designated for 6 ppl. The sink on this toilet is way too close to the toilet pot. U never got enough space to do comfortably your thing in the meantime. Since the checkout time is projected at 10 am. In the early morning about 0940am, the receptionist suddenly came into your room and woke everyone up to tell them that their check out is at 10 am!!! I have never been to a hostel that someone is so disrespectful and doing things like this! Also happened several times that the receptionist randomly asked everyone if they are in room 24 ??? (dont remember which number exactly) or just came in our room and ask again other members of the room something... I think if someone did not pay in advance or no matter what happened with that person in room 24, don't ask around and around, be organized and have a better control over your system! I work also in the customer service industry, and know what a traveller needs.... This means rest and privacy....
"Do not recommend!"
07/26/14 RossWilson94 Perth, Australia
Although the service was good and informative and the wi-fi worked well, that is unfortunately where the positives end. The staircase is barely big enough to fit one person and is extremely steep and dangerous - no elevator! The 8 bed dorm that we stayed in was tiny and cramped without air conditioning. The beds were too small without railings and there are no ladders to get up to the top bunks. Our bathroom was dirty and the shower had a large open window leading out into a children's playground. Breakfast is included however it is located in another hostel around the corner and consists of only bread and tea/coffee. For a hostel that charges nearly €50 per person per night I would expect much higher quality facilities than what is provided. Not a good hostel if you want to meet people. I strongly recommend staying elsewhere, even if you're desperate!
