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.

Saichi Okuma

29 December 2008 Saichi would recommend this property

Liked: Close to most famous Amsterdam's highlights. The breakfast is quite good, you have it in shared tables what gives you a chance to interact and know difrerent people. Good and free wireless internet. Also a good locker inside the room. If you go alone or with friends, it really worth a try. Although if you go with your family or girlfriend I wouldn't recommend.
