"Cool but somewhat seedy"
OK hostel in good tourist area. Mostly younger clientele.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"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! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
it was ok for a economical travel & if some one is travelling aloneGenuine Expedia guest review
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)Genuine Expedia guest review
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!!!!!!!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Hotel idéal pour sejour entre amis et pour les personnes peut exigante et a petit budget malgrés que les pris indiqués ne sont pas les vrai.. sinon l'hotel est est très bien situerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
位置不錯很多餐廳，房間品質狹窄就只適合簡單過夜沒什麼舒適度Good location, many restaurant nearby but the room is very small and narrow just for sleeping.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
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. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"camera troppo piccola"
camera davvero troppo piccola, doccia orrenda, ma nel complesso tutto pulito e personale disponibile. Posizione davvero ottimaGenuine Hotels.com guest review
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 Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Moyen mais cherGenuine Hotels.com guest review
値段で決めました。立地はいいですが、施設は古く、狭いです。清潔感もありません。朝食はパンとコーヒーかティーのみ。コロッケの自動販売機のほうがずっと美味しいです。安いだけの宿です。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

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.
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.
"Not my style"
Not impressed by anything here. Disgusting rooms and facilities. The one bathroom for the floor was tiny, didn't even try to shower, room felt grimy. Breakfast=bread and PB. Staff=strange. Can't recommnd

The orfeo hostel really isn't terrible. Some of the reviews I had read had made me think that it was going to be a absolute hell hole. The rooms are very basic, literally just beds and a sink on a wall, you share the shower/washroom with all the others on your floor, yet I never waited for either, however this may be a change in the summer. Don't be convinced by the "Breakfast Included" as the breakfast was bread with some spread, not even a toaster! Overall though the hostel is what you need if you're literally just looking for a place to crash.
"Not your money's worth, worst hostel I've been"
12/02/14 Shady H
Extremely noisey ALL night long (sleeping was imposible, we stayed there three nights, incuding a sunday to monday), just one diminute bathroom shared per floor (30 people), hedious smell of cleaning products and insecticide, the "breakfast" was horrible (1 piece of old cold bread, no toaster), staff is generally unfriendly, unexpected extra costs for everything (city taxes, bag storage, etc) Overall it is overpriced, unfriendly and uncomfortable.
"Clean and welcoming"
11/26/14 ianw435 Mirfield, United Kingdom
The hostel is situated in a pedestrianised area near to the museums quarter of Amsterdam, with lots of restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The welcome at reception was very warm and friendly, and efficient. The dormitory, with 6 bunk beds, had en-suite shower and toilet, with plenty of hot water. The bed was clean and comfortable. If I come back to Amsterdam on my own I would stay here again.
"The worst hostel I've ever been!"
11/17/14 DanielMG80 Madrid, Spain
We went 6 people and we paid like we were in a 5 stars hotel. And this hostel is just horrible. Dirty, the rooms are horrible and small, the breakfast is the worst i've ever eaten in a hostel and I've never paid so much for a 6 beds room in my life. I'm an experienced traveller and I can tell you I've never been in such a place like that. and the service is even worse. Since one week before the problems begun with the stuff. We wanted to cancel two beds one week in advance, and after we were cheated with the price, the staff didn't solve the cancellation. And with such an extortionate price, we didn't have toilet paper in the room and no towels (they rent the towels). The stuff was rude since the first day. You feel they are cheating in your face. And finally they don't want to prepare us the company bill we need. Seriously, Don't go this hostel or they will continue cheating the travellers! This kind of places should close forever.

Fairly standard hostel, nothing special get what you pay for. I didn't stay over a weekend though which I was told my other guests is ridiculously over priced for what it is. The free breakfast is just peanut butter, jam and some loafs of bread but there is a kitchen so maybe buy your own stuff. We stayed in a 12 bed dorm which actually had 10 beds but there were 2 mattresses against the wall so I guess when it's busy that makes it a 12, unlucky for anyone who has to sleep on them. The bed sheets were very old and mine was ripped, you have 1 en suite bathroom between 12/10 so there's always a queue. No lockers for your things, free use of computers though. Location is average. Not really any where to socialise and there are 2 old men that hang around the hostel in the evening I assume they own a business near or something, but they were harassing a women who was there on her own, when she complained to the guy on reception he was very rude to her and even defended them. Wouldn't stay again
