Accommodation Information

Bob's Youth Hostel is a basic hostel, but has all you need if you are a laid back traveler that wants to meet nice people and enjoy Amsterdam fully.

Our dorm rooms have 4 to 20 beds. It is possible to book a 4, 6 or 8-bed dorm just for your group.

PLEASE NOTE: If you book a 4, 6 or 8-bed private dorm with private bathroom that means you will have your own private shower and wash stand. The toilet is shared with one other small dorm.

Location Information

Bob thought it would be nice to locate his hostel in the center of Amsterdam, and so he did! It is only 5 minutes from Central Station and Dam Square. The red-light is close by, and so is the Anne Frank house. On top of that, there are dozens of bars and venues in the direct; Bob was wise in choosing his location: tramlines 1, 2, 5, 13 and 17 from central station stop right in front of the door, and they’ll take you almost anywhere.

Thanks to his insight, you won’t have to walk too much. Everybody says: ‘thank you Bob’!
