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!"

Customer review

18 June 2008

Liked: Good breakfast and friendly staff. Right in the heart of the red light district but that was the problem. The first night so much noise that my freinds could not sleep so we shifted. Actually the seciond night was quieter but still they were not comfortable staying so close to the red light area.

Customer review

02 June 2008 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: This is the best location if you are going for the Red Light District. It can be rather noisey at night, but that is because you are right in the middle of all the action. is a clean and fairly secure hostel and you have to check in every time you come into the hostel. The breakfast is a good bonus and can be a good place to meet other people. It is also stumbling distance to the hostel from most places in the Red Light District. As a girl travelling by myself and i felt very safe here and in the area it is situated in.
