It's not an option in this building to have a common kitchen with more than 500 beds...so and 500 guests.... But cheap food at the bar is a good solution isn't it?

Liked: Very good The bar great Staff friendly Rooms cleaned and comfy and amazing location

Disliked: Mosquitos in the room and got bit to death but proably not a regular issue and the toilet smelled of wee Dont buy food from the hostel, the snacks are great like fries but the actual food is awful. Had to return my food and swap it for somethint else. Despite theses negatives you will not regret staying there. Proably best for younger people.

Liked: Its location in the Amsterdam city centre which makes possible to visit the city very easily by using the most common means of transport, I mean tramways, buses and boats !

Disliked: Definitely, the noise late in the evening and the expensive price for a single room.

Thanks for your review! Hopefully for the noise the earplugs did work!

Liked: L'ostello e' discreto..a 15 minuti a piedi da Piazza dam..le stanze sono o meno pulite e le asciugamani sono cambiate tutti i giorni..e' economico e il personale e' gentile tranne una ragazza in reception. Se ti serve ti stampano il check in. Lo consiglio per chi fa un viaggio in compagnia tra amici!c'e' wifi free..

Liked: Location

Disliked: Too expensive for a private room that is so bare.we had a family of 3,should be a chair/desk. One locker had no door. Bathroom stinky.

Customer would recommend this property


The property's response is

Even the private rooms are still private rooms in a hostel... so not a whole lot more, but privacy with your own group though. Did you check at the reception about the door? They are always willing to help you! Hope you enjoyed the good location and Amsterdam :)
