May Castelnuovo thinks…

"For 15 € a night you get a clean bed in a 8 dorm room, which is also clean, travelers basicly need nothing more then this, and other hostels take double and triple prices. This hostel is perfect…"

Liked: The showers were nice. 24 hour reception.

Disliked: A lot about this hostel was bad for me. First up, the wifi is terrible. Took me forever to connect. When I ask the guy at the desk where I could go around the hostel, all he was capable of suggesting were coffeshops. Also, there are tons of smokers blocking the entry to the reception because they smoke in the stairs. The building is old and you hear everything. People walking over our heads and stopping us from sleeping. Barely slept because there are no curtains on the windows and people outside were very loud. To me, this was a party hostel.. Go if that is what you're looking for.

Liked: Quite close to the city center and probably one of the cheapest in Amsterdam.

Disliked: the rooms are bare and the common room is extra small, moreover there was no breakfast included, I wasn't expecting something fancy but in every hostel I've been they were offering something to eat in the morning.

Liked: The hostel is in a good location and is a great place to meet other travellers and make new friends. The atmosphere in the hostel is chill and friendly and the staff is very helpful and kind. For example one of the staff member, Appi, got us a place in another hostel when this hostel was full! I couldn't thank him enough for that. But without doubt, this was one of the best hostels so far.

Disliked: There was not really anything to complain.

Liked: After reading so many bad reviewes, I still chose this hostel bacause the price in weekdays is really low compared to other hostels in amsterdam. It is much better than I have expected. Hot shower, luggage room, small lockers in room, but to bring your own padlock because the padlock fee is quite expensive. Good wifi signal in common room.

Disliked: Poor wifi in room. Very very small toilet and bathroom, dun even hv places to put ur towels & clothes. No air-conditioning, not even fan, so its really hot and cant hv a good sleep becoz of that. Not enough lockers & power sockets in my room, only 3 for 8 ppl. Very steep stairs, but I assume its the same all ard amsterdam

Liked: The staff were so helpful and friendly - they gave us a hair dryer to use and were always available for help. They gave Amigos the wonderful chilled out atmosphere which is good for somewhere like Amsterdam. The hostel was also very close to the centre of Amsterdam and the tram goes from right outside! The shower was really good and the toilet facilities were also clean and always had toilet paper! Mega bonus was the free unlimited wifi and we had a room between 4 of us which was quiet and clean!

Disliked: The stairs were very steep!
