Best choice for a solo traveller
a perfect place for a solo traveller. Keep in mind that the building doesnt have lift... so you have to drag your bags threw a small stairs... the reception people were supper friendly. they help you with any kind of information or problem. Best part was the bar and the smoking room, people mostly spend their time in those places... its a great place to meet new people. I was there till 2-3 in the morning everyday. they have activities everyday from 8-9pm with happy hour drinking... very close to the city centre. the bed was comfortable and i was in a 14 bed dorm. Other guests were friendly and didnt make noise when others were sleeping. Toilets and shower room was very clean and if you find them dirty just tell them, they clean it asap. overall a very good place to stay if you are travelling solo or with friends.. supper friendly environment...

2/10 Poor

Worst hostel in Amsterdam
Terrible service at check in. I requested a bottom bunkbed and was told that I got one. Once I get to the room which is a steep climb to 4th floor (!!!) it's actuallhy a top bed. When I mentioned to the front desk she said they're completely booked. She never told me what the wifi code. I had to ask my roommate. But then the wifi is completely not working on that floor

10/10 Exceptional

My experience was awesome! 5/5, my only bummer was the size of the bathrooms. Location: Not only is it directly across from the beautiful and leisurely Vondel Park, it was a very short walk to the museum square (where most of the major museums are located). Quiet but lively area. Staff: Super friendly and welcoming! Knowledgeable about the area and city. couldn't be any better, felt that I was in safe and genuine hands. Facilities: *NO ELEVATORS* so this may not be the best for anyone who requires an elevator. The stairs are also very narrow, this is common throughout the city though. The stairs were not a problem, otherwise. The staff also offers to assist you in taking your luggage upstairs if you do need the help! The bathrooms are kept very clean, but please know that they are very very small (and I am a short and smaller-sized person!). Bathrooms are separate from the showers. The rooms are clean and have nice lockable cages under the bed. They would not accommodate a very large suitcase, however. They have external lockable lockers for that. You can rent locks cheaply at the front desk. The smoking room and bar area are very cool! Having a smoking room was incredibly convenient, and great for socializing around the pool table...and yes, it is 4/20 friendly. :-)
