About The Bulldog

At The Bulldog budget travelers can enjoy a clean bed, bath, and more, all at a hospitable rate. According to founder Henk de Vries, the low budget hotel is a dream come true. "I've done a fair bit of traveling myself, so I know what backpackers and other budget travelers are looking for." The Bulldog offers rooms in a variety of shapes and sizes.
Around the clock security allows the guests comfort and safety within their environment. We are located in the very heart of Amsterdam's infamous red light district, near Dam Square. Amidst all of the excitement of this vibrant city you will find a meeting place with a cozy lounge and relaxed vibe, where you can meet people from all over the world, have a coffee or drink and enjoy the atmosphere. We strive to be a home away from home for all Bulldog lovers eighteen years of age and higher.
We understand you have limited funds, so our staff is carefully selected to create an atmosphere where no one will laugh at you for eating peanut butter sandwiches three times a day. The rooms are far more comfortable than your average hostel. We have private accommodations as well as dormitories available. Finally, hostel guests can expect to find all kinds of tourist information. We have leaflets lying around somewhere. Reservations can be made with a credit card.
