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!"

10 April 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I was a little surprised at HOW close to the Red Light this was (you could look out your window across the canal and see a woman dancing in her window). The area WAS extremely central in location and walking distance to the "Heart" of Amsterdam if your intent is to club, party, and explore the seedy side of Amsterdam. It was about 15 minutes from the Museum district. The first night we were put in a 4 person room when we had a private, but they did us right and there was NO one else in the room with us and had a place for us to store our packs during the next day while we waited on our room.The rooms ARE all movie themed, and very dark. Which is great for the late night crowd. A TV in each room was nice, and the other thing I liked? The bathrooms were IN the rooms, so for a 4 person room you didn't have to walk out the hallway to use the bathroom in the middle of the night.My daughter was in a 8 person room with her friend, the bathrooms got pretty gross with all the people, when she left for the day she came back and found it had not been cleaned. They got new towels once in our 4 day, 3 night stay.I can say one thing about the gentleman that works there, he is honest. I left my digital camera at a computer (they have two laptops you can use that are connected to internet in the lobby) and he made sure it got to me.A mix of ages, and people don't get that urge for social, but I wasn't there to make friends with other travelers. Breakfast was your traditional european spread, very tasty and just fine for a light start.

Liked: location was superb, right on the red light district. the lockers were small, could fit luggage in them. this hostel is not a party hostel - you have to be quiet at night time and there is no social area to meet other people staying at the hostel. breakfast was good - cold meats, cheese, toast, cereal, coffee and tea etc.

Scott Knecht

17 January 2009 Scott would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel had a GREAT location. It was a little hard to find by the directions on the website (walk 10 minutes until you find it...) but once you are there you are moments from the Red LIght district, a step away from the Cannabis Museum and all of the cafes, pubs, and coffee shops you need to see. I would definitely stay here again, the staff was great, there was a free breakfast, and the group in the hostel was awesome.
