Lincoln Mohler thinks…

"The beds and pillows were great. I figured more people would be drinking but the main vibe is smoking so be aware. Breakfast is what you expect for free. Bread, cereal, hard boiled eggs juice etc."

23 September 2009 David would recommend this property

Liked: Very good overall hostel. Must hop on short tram ride to get to the city center. One unexpected item was that the kitchens are only open from 13:00 - 22:30, so I wasn't able to prepare meals in the morning.

Nicole Chinneck

30 August 2009 Nicole would recommend this property

Liked: There were lockers big enough for your entire backpack and more underneath the beds so you didnt have to worry AT ALL about your belongings. Nice breakfast. Bar was cool with comfy sofas and location fantastic - just a short walk to all the action (and easy tram ride to station). Staff were lovely and they lent out laptops for for free internet which was brilliant. We were in a room right next to the bar and kitchen so were a bit worried we'd get no sleep with the loud music, but couldnt hear a thing!! Kitchen IS open (we read somewhere it wasnt) but there is no free skate hire. Instead you get free towels!

Liked: This is a nice place to meet people to go out or just to talk at the bar downstairs. It is not the most quiet hostel, but people are respectful in dorms. It was very clean and safe. Overall, a great place to have fun in Amsterdam, even if travelling alone!

Customer review

21 July 2009

Liked: First, it was a really narrow and really close house. The atmosphere was stifling too much. Just in the small room, there were 16 people. it was too much, even we didn't wanna go into the hostel for every nights. What is worse, the airconditional was broken and they didn't fix it during our stay. so it was pretty hot. even the weather was not so hot, we couldn't sleep whole of the night. The only good thing is there's a party every nignt, but for the people who wanna rest, it's horrible. when I wanted to enjoy it, it is nice party to meet people. but when i wanted to sleep, NO!! I couldn't sleep until 3 am. They never consider the people who want to sleep.
