"The location was really great! Close to the train station and the main areas so there was no need to get a tram pass. The rooms were big and the bunk beds were clean and sturdy. Very laid back…"Read all Bob's Youth Hostel reviews

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’!
