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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

Es handelte sich um ein 14 qm großs Zimmer (Bad einberechnet) mit 4 Doppelstockbetten, wovon eines direkt vor dem Fenster stand, so dass ein Lüften unmöglich war. Das Bad war dreckig, schimmelte und auch dort ging das Fenster nur zu öffnen, wenn man versuchte, dagegen zu drücken, ohne dabei auszurutschen und aus dem Fenster zu fallen. Definitiv nur etwas für Notunterkünfte wie in meinem Fall oder aber für Jugendliche. Frühstück bestand aus: Toast (ohne es toasten zu können) und einer Einheitsmarmelade oder Erdnussbutter. Geschirr musste selbst abgewaschen werden.

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.

"Mixed feelings"
05/21/15 whiskaylullaby Ljubljana, Slovenia
I was traveling to Amsterdam with a group of students. I wasn't happy with the hostel. We had a room for six. When we came into the room some of the beds weren't ready and I was having the feeling that other beds also weren't clean. Room was very small, but that's okay for a hostel. I was very disappointed when I saw the bathroom, because it was very small and when you had a shower the water was everywhere. And there was no ventilation, so whole room and the bathroom smelled very bad. Another bad thing, I didn't like was that we had to have breakfast in another hostel and they said we need to be there at 7 o'clock, later we didn't have breakfast. I was at a breakfast once, but I never went again, because it wasn't good or enough to be full. But there were also good things. We were traveling a lot, so we were at our room only at night, so that wasn't that bad. Also, the staff was very nice and they told us what we can see, where is good food... They were really really nice. For all people who love night life, this hostel is good idea, because it's in the center of Amsterdam and everything you need is there. But if you get drunk or stoned be careful, because the stairs are very narrow. But I had a great time, because Amsterdam is very pretty. I recomend you to visit it!

"Great Locality"

Me and my friend stayed here for 3 days . the staff was very helpfull, explained very well how to travel to places and also told us about this great area to shop, which was perfect for us girls ! Room : we were in a 6 mixed room . the room was quite small with a tiny bathroom. We came back again here after a few days , we arrived around 8 and got our room at 12. which was quite difficult as we were tired from a night journey. the second room that we got was surprisingly big ! with a bathtub in the bathroom ! it was the same 6 mixed room but the rooms were so difficult !! quite a shocker ! Location : amazing places to eat around the hostel ! so we were pretty happy. also it felt quite safe in that area. i really enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hostel . just ask for a bigger room !

"Budget hostel but not budget price"

Me and my friend booked a room in a mixed dorm. We booked about a week in advance so quite last minute. I thought it was a bit pricey for what you get. Our room was a bit stuffy as it was 6 to a room and the bathroom had no ventilation. If you left the bathroom door open the whole room would smell like mould. Definitely bring flip flops and open the window! It would have been better if someone had come round to clean the bathroom as it wasn't cleaned whilst we were there and the smell was unbearable (3 nights). The check out is at 10am which I think is a bit early considering check in is at 2pm and the room just gets new sheets and the bin emptied. If you want to leave your bags during your check out day they charge 3 euros which we weren't told when we asked about it on check in. Breakfast was just around the corner at another hostel and was just bread and jam with a hot drink. The staff were all really friendly and helpful. The bus stop is right around the corner to get to the airport and the hostel is right in the middle of places to eat and drink so you don't have to go far to find anything. I would probably recommend staying here if you need somewhere for one/two nights and want to be located close to food and bars.

"Perfect!"

Really friendly and helpful staff, nice little balcony behind the desk - no bud nor booze allowed but that isn't really of concern as downstairs, there's is an easy going coffee shop called Rookie's. The weed is good and the atmosphere is relaxed - good music! The rooms are standard, no complaints about anything really. Location wise, it's about a 20 minute walk to the red light district but really close to leidseplein. 4.5/5

"Excellent Hostel"
02/07/15 stehehmke18 Leicester, United Kingdom
For the price it was great! 2 minutes from the bus Station, where you can find direct buses (#197 and N97 for Schipol airport) as well 3 minutes away you can find the tram station. I recommed you to walk around, cause everything is really close , so there's no need at all to get a tram. On the hotel street you can find plenty restaurants options for a reasonable prices. The hotel staff were really friendly, specially the Greek guy. As I said by walk you can get to mostly of all main attraction of the City. The hotel is really simple, our room has 3 bunk beds. As well the toilet were the worse actually, kind of dirty and always very wet, cause there was no shower curtain at all. But overall, it was alright, I would book again with Amsterdam Hostel Uptown.

For the price that me and my boyfriend booked was alright. 2 minutes from the bus Station, where you can find direct buses (#197 and others red colour buses)for Schipol airport , as well 3 minutes away you can find the tram station. I recommed you to walk around , cause everything is really close , so there's no need at all to get a tram. On the hotel street you can find plenty restaurants options for a reasonable prices, but if you're short on money you can get nice, cheap meal right on the corner where's the Chinese Restaurant. Some of the hotel staff where really friendly when we got some problem with credit card, even thou one of the recepcionist (Spanish guy-Luis) was yelling and doens't want to help at all, another 2 guys who worked there deserve my greatings forever. As I said by walk you can get to mostly of all main attraction of the City. The hotel is really simple our room has 2 single beds, a bed light and a small chair so our clothes was all on the floor, cause we had no enough hooks to hang our stuff. As well the toilet was like a river, cause the floor I guess is crooked , so theres wasn't a way to all the water go away after shower (bring yours or ask them for a mop ). For us the worse part was people slaming doors, jumping around, specially on the stairs what can be really anoying when happens continuosly. If after all day you want to rest, with the mop bring some earplugs will help. We would totally go back to Amsterdam, unfortunally not to Amsterdam Hostel Uptown. Cause for us, is a Business and a bit of leisure trip, so we like to rest to get up in the morning fresh or go back in the middle of night after enjoy the pubs around. P.S.: 5 days there we never got room cleaner, maybe you must ask for, cause I am not use to enquire in hotels where I stay, to them change my trash bag or towels.

Came to this coffeeshop everyday of my four day stay with my girlfriend. Nice weed, good coffees, friendly staff and good prices. I would highly recommend this place for a chilled out smoke. Smoke a prerolled power plant spliff in the morning and youll get a nice relaxed but active feeling over the day :) peace x

"No real issues!!"
12/28/14 Eve M Newcastle upon Tyne, England, United Kingdom
Mixed group of 3 stayed here for 6 nights in an 8 bed dorm - another group of 3 also in the dorm for the same duration. Room is slightly cramped but only needed it to sleep any way. Room, beds and bathroom were perfectly clean at the start but the bathroom floor got quite unsanitary by the last couple of days - i recommend flip flops! Staff were lovely, only came into the rooms after 11 in a morning and only to wake those who were supposed to have checked out by 10am as there were new people coming in. No lockers in the room but will take bags filled with valuables and lock them away throughout the day - left luggage in the dorm but belongings weren't touched. Really good location - rookies next door is highly recommended - lots of nightlife, coffeeshops, eateries and shops nearby. Read reviews before going which concerned me but it isn't bad at all! It's not luxury but it's exactly what we needed as travelling students. 1 girl, 2 boys travelled - age 18-20 - from England

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.
