Eventhough my reservation was one bed in 12 (or 10 maybe) bed dorm, I was informed during the check-in that I was moved to a 6 bed dorm, which was a nice surprise.

"DO NOT STAY - TRUST ME!!"
Worst hostel experience I have ever had. Management was rude, they kept charging us random fees, and we had trouble at check out to get our deposit back. I do not write reviews, but I am writing one about this place because it was such a terrible experience...

"Good location but terrible service and conditions."
The location is the only good thing about this hostel. The staff is not friendly and didn't even make an effort to help with our questions. The rooms were boiling hot and so uncomfortable. I had to climb to my bed through this other guy's bed and almost stepped all over him. They have no lockers either so def bring as lock for your bag. The shower was the worst, but oh no wait, it was actually the toilet that was the worst. Do not get fooled by the 'Free Breakfast'. It only runs from 8 to 9.30 or so and they give you tea, coffee, and stale bread with some jam. Next time I am in Amsterdam, I'll pass on this hostel!

"Dormitory"
Expect what you would find in a dormitory filled with youth! I find the price is a little bit high considering I could have gotten a room for myself for cheeper. I was very surprised by how quiet the place was (despite the fact that we were in Amsterdam)

"bad hostel"
我從來沒有住過這麼糟糕的旅館,照片根本就是騙人的,實際狀況非常差,東西很舊,房間一開始電燈還壞掉,牆壁斑駁,上下舖非常擠,而且沒有梯子爬上上鋪,女生根本不知道怎麼爬上去,而且上鋪靠外面還沒有任何可以檔的東西,一翻身不小心就會摔下來...房間非常小,只有一個插座,很潮濕,隔音也很差,樓上的房客和外面的人都很吵,我們住的那層樓的浴室蓮蓬頭都是水垢,水幾乎出不來,不知道怎麼洗澡。 網站上說可以寄放行李,但是退房當天寄放行李一個人要三歐(我們只問說能不能放三小時),退房時間剛到打掃人員(男生)門都不敲就直接拿鑰匙要開門進來,當時我們兩個女生正在換衣服,正要準備下樓退房,差點曝光!!!! I have never stayed in such a bad hotel, photo is a lie, the actual situation is very bad, something very old, the room lights also broken , mottled walls, bunk bed is very crowded, and there is no ladder to climb the upper berth, we do not know how to climb, and capped by the outside nothing can stall, turned the body is easy fall down ... the room is very small, there is only one outlet, very moist, very poor soundproofing, upstairs the tenant and the outside people are very noisy, we live in that bathroom shower have very much furring, water is very very smaill, I do not know how can take a bath. The site says you can store luggage, but the day of leave, Counter staff say that store luggage need to pay three Euro (we just asked, can we put three hours?), When Check-out time, cleaning staff come (boys) and do not knock the door, direct the keys to open the door when we're changing clothes, so scare us!!! So terrible!!!!!!!!!

여기저기 트램 또는 도보로 돌아다니기 좋은 위치. 계단으로 5층까지 걸어 올라가야 함. 침구가 닳아서 구멍이 나 있고 방은 더러움. 하지만 비교적 저렴한 가격. 방을 같이 쓴 사람들이 좋아서 그나마 즐거웠음. 아침은 커피, 식빵, 잼이 다이다.

"Suosittelen välttämään."
Ainut positiivinen puoli on hostellin sijainti suht keskeisellä paikalla. Muilta osin heikoimpia, joissa olen majoittunut. Kovat sängyt, epäsiistit tilat, huono äänieristys kadulta (melua 24/7), ei wifiä vaikka niin väitetään (aulassa kaksi konetta) lisäksi kohteen aamiaiseen ei kannata liikaa turvautua pelkkää paahtoleipää, hilloa ja maapähkinävoita every day. Tasoon nähden YLIHINTAINEN.

Prima verblijf. Was een hostel. sliepen in erg klein kamertje met stapelbed. Waren naar concert in Paradiso en dat is maar 100 meter verder op. Wel erg lawaai in de nacht van buiten. Maar je je zit in hartje uitgaanscentrum Amsterdam, dat kan je dan verwachten. Hier kan het hotel ook niks aan doen. Veel eettentjes inde buurt waar je voor een pizza 5 euro betaald maar een biertje kost daar dan weer 3,50 :-( . Was ook nog een ontbijtje bij inbegrepen koffie /thee en brood met jam of pindakaas :-) Erg aardig personeel. Wel nog 5% toeristenbelasting komt over de kamerprijs heen. En voor een handdoek € 1.50

"Don't go there!!!"
08/29/15 Slavic S
This was the worst hostel I have ever been. First of all they wanted cheat us on 50€ when they made a bill. Then we saw the room (I'm not sure if I can call this room, because it was like a cowshed). Very dirty and small place. The staff was very unpleasant. If you like to spend nice time in Amsterdam, DON't GO THERE.

"Overpriced"
08/01/15 Cathal S Naas, Kildare, Ireland
I will begin with the positives of the hostel. The hostel is in a great location. The hostel is in the heart of the party district of Leidesplan with great bars and restaurants just across the street. The hostel is also a stones throw away from the Vogelspark and Rijksmeusem. The staff are sound enough like. The hostel is very expensive for it's quality. 35 euro a night for a shared dorm is dear considering we paid 20 euro in Brussels and 17 euro in Berlin for superior hostels. The hostel has a stale smell and the rooms are cramped. The toilets and shower are a bit smelly which is a pet hate for me. There is also no party atmosphere in the hostel.

"It's a roof over your head"
06/29/15 DanielleGeorgey Brisbane, Australia
Okay, so this is probably the most tired hostel that I've ever stayed at; it's definitely in need of a good refurbishment. This said however, it's not terrible. If you're just looking for somewhere to sleep at night, then this hostel is quite fine; the communal facilities are kept clean and the beds are pretty comfortable, and the location is perfect. As other reviewers have stated, this place is indeed pretty overpriced for what you get, however if you're not fussy and you need somewhere to stay, I'd check it out.

"This place is terrible..."
06/12/15 Antonis S Munich, Germany
First of all the place is way too expensive. WAY TOO EXPENSIVE for what you will get. Secondly, the rooms and the whole hostel pretty much smells. Thirdly, the showers are pretty horrible, as is the general appearance of the place. The only positive thing I have to say is that it is very centrally located and you can buy candy and soft drinks downstairs but thats it. Really think about if you want to stay in a run down place before you make the booking decision.

Myself and a friend recently travelled to Amsterdam for a weekend away. The Hostel was very nice to stay in, two bed room, bunk beds sent you back to your childhood! Free Wi-Fi, friendly staff, overall would say brilliant and I would return here again soon!

It was really terrible hostel. Smell from restroom is everywhere. The location is very good. A lot of small things doesn't work. When I was in the room, cleaner just come in the room and wiped the water dispenser with chlorine rag.

"Overpriced box room"
03/24/15 Lucy-Jane F Brighton, United Kingdom
I have just come back from a one night stay at this hostel with friends. We stayed in a three bed dorm which was just about adequate. The sheets were clean and the plugs worked but the lighting was broken and the room was so tiny we barely had any room to put our cases. There is no locker storage but in it's place a shower at the end of one of the beds. Yep just a lone shower in the middle of the room - very odd! This hostel is quite central (in walking distance of the Leidseplein) and the nearest tram stops are on about 3 lines which is very handy for getting around. Personally I found it a little difficult to find, as this area is very samey (this goes for Amsterdam in general but this area was definitely the worst to get your bearings). The area itself is good and is the hostel's saving grace. There are lots of shops, pharmacies, supermarkets, bars/clubs and restaurants around. It's also in walking distance from the VondelPark which is lovely. We were on the top floor and there is a very steep winding staircase upwards. I know this is a general problem with places in Amsterdam but this one was particularly difficult. We arrived early so asked to leave our luggage before check in which wasn't a problem and this was kept safe at the back of the hostel. The staff seemed pretty friendly and a young guy marked off some things on a map for us but we didn't really get much chance to chat only being there for one night. There were only 1 toilet & shower per floor which can be a little troublesome however they were both relatively clean so can't fault them. I wouldn't say this is the most social hostel. The lobby area was quite nice but there didn't seem to be many people around. This wasn't a problem for us as we just used the place as a shower and bed but if you are a lone traveller this is something you may want to consider. We didn't actually have the breakfast but it just looked like white bread and jam/PB. Overall there is nothing I can particularly fault as being down-right awful but I wouldn't be in a hurry to come back here. The location is good for 1 or 2 nights but I think past then this place would prove more of a problem and it is extremely overpriced for what you get. We were actually going to stay for an extra 2 nights but they elevated their prices so much that we moved somewhere else.

"Funky rooms..."
03/15/15 Chloeking13
The lounge area on the first floor was cool. You can watch tv and there are snacks to buy. And the location is good. Everything is in walkable distance. That being said, the room we stayed in was scary. The beds were moist, there was mold on the walls... And the wifi was not dependable.

"Overpriced dirty hostel"
01/19/15 Lynn P Freihung
I couldn't believe how much we had to pay for this dump. And that's what it ultimately is...a dump! We had a private room with a bunk bed and a sink (but no lockers). The sheets were covered in blood stains and white "unidentifiable" stains. The staff didn't even bother to tuck in the bed sheet on the side of the wall...pure laziness and "don't give a F..." attitude. There is one toilet and one shower per floor, which really isn't enough considering 20+ people share these. The shower head was so old and full of calcium that the bit of water coming out of it either dripped or shot in all directions. For 5 euros/per person more you can book a 3 star hotel in Amsterdam. Save yourself the hassle and book a decent place instead.
