"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.

We strive to be a home away from home for all Bulldog lovers eighteen years of age and higher.
