15 August 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is more like a hotel than a hostel which was great. There was a communal eating area for everyone and we got to meet people from all over the place: Australia, Siberia, England, Canada etc... Our room was clean and we weren't too squashed considering we were a room of 8.

Disliked: Not a lot of storage room for clothes. Staff were quite unhelpful except for the Irish girl who was absolutely lovely. We had booked two rooms as we had a large group and one of the receptionists made it very difficult to pay, involving us going to an ATM but she had sent us in the wrong direction to it so we were walking around for ages trying to find one. Took us over 40 minutes just to check-in. Slowest elevator in the world.

Liked: Facilities and location, good value for your money. Nice breakfast.

Disliked: Staff in reception weren't very friendly or helpful at all. Actually they were kind of rude, they don't even smile or make you feel welcome. That's not the way you expect to be treated when you are a guest. Specially a guest who is paying.

Liked: This hostel really seems more like a converted hotel (it even says "Hotel Van Gogh" on the outside) but it is totally worth it. Very clean, easy to reach and in a good location near Museumplein. Hostel area was very quiet at night, which was great.

Disliked: It is a little bit far from nighttime activities in Amsterdam (red light district is quite far) . It's rather expensive for a hostel but still pretty decent value for money.

Liked: The location of the hotel was perfect for being close to the city, but far enough out so that it wasn't noisy at night. The room was clean, spacious and well equipped, as was the private en suite bathroom. The air conditioning was great and much appreciated.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: The bathrooms are nicer than those at my parents' house. The beds do not have footboards so my feet were able to hang off the end a bit as I am around 6ft (~2m). Great breakfast, too. Best I have had in a hostel. High recommend.

Disliked: Nothing. I stayed in much worse hostels my frist time around in Europe.

06 June 2014 Michael would recommend this property

Liked: The property is very nice and well maintained and is located directly across from the Van Gogh museum. It is near the Rijks museum and there is a shopping center one block away in the museumplex.... It's downstairs under the slanted grass hill in the park. Walking to old town is easy. Just walk through the bike lanes in the center of the Rijks museum and keep walking over the canals. You may get lost at first, but hey.....it's Amsterdam!!!! If you're lost in the city, don't panic. You can't go too far without eventually finding your way. Take the number 2 or 5 street cars and they'll take you right back to the Van Gogh. The food is nothing short of fantastic. Eat!!! Anything!!! Really!!! And for those of you who like COFFEE, There's no short supply. :). Amsterdam is certainly an eye opening experience, but one in which you'll return again and again. GO TO A MUSEUM! You'll miss out on a life experience if you don't go. Michael

Disliked: Nothing. For a hostel, you'll be more than satisfied

Liked: The location was great!

Disliked: The staff were super unfriendly; some of the worst I've ever encountered. The wifi almost never connected. At one point I asked a staff member if she could reset the wifi and her response was "I never use wifi when I travel. You should go out into the city instead of being on the internet." They also never clean the washrooms or anything.
