Small yet cozzy

by KristinaMay R on 31 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

It's well located, since it's walking distance from the Tam stop. You can also get to the Heineken Experience and/or Van Gogh Mesuem walking, as well(it takes about 15 mins.). Staff was really polite and helpful. Rooms are pretty small, there's barely any space for your luggage and to walk around, but the beds are amazingly comfortable. Rooms are cleaned every day. Breakfast is pretty basic, bread, cereal, coffee, tea juice, fresh fruit,ham and cheese. They have free Amsterdam maps, so there's ...

Great find close to center

by devonstar12 on 23 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

This hostel is great if your not lazy or expecting more for your money than you pay. We booked 3 nights for £116. This included breakfast and a private bathroom in our room. Our room was on the 4th floor meaning we had to climb 3 sets of spiral stairs (stairs is part of Amsterdam you will be none stop climbing them in museums) I'm pregnant and took great care coming down them but still managed without inconvenience. We arrived earlier than check in time and was allowed to enter our room. To sing...

Decent hotel for price.

by Antones158 on 20 Nov 2016 (Friends Traveller)

Last minute booking somewhere close to the city centre with a group of friends. Mostly clean hotel, very steep stairs though, friendly staff. Couldnt rate the breakfast as we were never up for it. 15 minute tram ride from the hotel to Centraal Station. Would probably stay at this hotel again for the price we paid.

This to me is more of a hotel than hostel as its rooms and breakfast and dining area is very good. The stairs to the rooms are a little scary/fun but ok if you take your time staff are very friendly and kind with excellent English. If you love to walk like we did you can get to central and red light district in about 35 mins or take the tram for a couple of euros which is a ten min journey. Will be definitely going back very soon. Thanks again to sphinx

What to expect from a hostel!

by Ivana M on 26 Sep 2016 (Friends Traveller)

The hostel is just 2 min walk from a tram station, and the tram is just 3 stops (5-10 min) from the center. On the outside it looks like a standard nice building in Amsterdam, but inside is pretty basic. The staff was really kind - they helped us with directions, provided with maps and ordered the taxi for the airport (only 50€ for 5 persons!). The breakfast is good, and still served after 10am. The WiFi was also great and strong the whole time. The steps which everyone mentions are horrible, bu...
