ATINA CHANG thinks…

"Literally in the HEART of Amsterdam, in the Red Light District. You can see brothels from the window if you're on the street side. GREAT staff, better than I expected!"

01 October 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location was perfect, walking distance from the train station and it is right on with its name, it IS in the Heart of Amsterdam. The only thing about it was that the bathroom was not as clean as we would want it, I guess they were trying on someone new on the clening staff but it was poor. The staff didn´t care about you staying there which we felt we weren´t being welcomed.Other than that, It was a good experience and good price for the nioght we stayed.

18 September 2009

Liked: clean bed, ok location, pretty good breakfast. expect the stink eye from rude, unhelpful staff. there is no kitchen and the only common area is the unwelcoming lobby. this was not a good hostel for meeting other travelers. beware the basement rooms; no number of sin city posters can make up for the claustrophobically low ceilings. no charm.

01 September 2009 Lauren would recommend this property

Liked: If your looking for a mad party time then this is the place to stay. Smack bang in the centre of the red district with one of the best coffee shops right around the corner. (The GreenHouse - a must)The themed rooms aren't all they say there are.....just a painted door and a feature wall really.We had read that the noise and heat was a huge issue for this place however we were really luck where our room was upstairs and at the back of the building with 2 massive windows (The Clockwork room)Just your basic average hostel really, we had fun!

31 August 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: It is a very centric place, in the middle of the red district. Theres plenty of restaurants and bars so it is quite noisy during the night (not recommended if you are looking for some rest). The rooms were very very hot so the windows had to stay open all night. Clean bed sheets and towels every day but they didn't clean the bathroom... Breakfast was great!!
