Margarita Kostina thinks…

"Perfect location close to Rijksmuseum, not noisy at all, clean bedsheets. Breakfast is quite ok too. Check-out on Sunday is also possible, although the website of the hotel says it's not!"

Annie Taylor

15 August 2009 Annie would recommend this property

Liked: The sphinx hostel catered to everything we needed but not much else. It was a good location just to sleep, shower and to keep our things. There were safes to keep valuables in. Was not the best place to meet fellow backpackers as you couldnt make noise in the hostel after 11PM so socialising was kept to a minimum. but all in all was a pleasant stay.

Customer review

08 August 2009

Liked: I booked into an en-suite bed in a 6-person dorm for 23 euros, but when I arrived was told I had to sleep on a mattress on the floor, and was informed that I was expected to pay the same price, or to be asked to leave. I spoke to others at the hostel with a similar experience - four German girls who had booked a private room for four but were all in different rooms and were not even offered a discount. I know that others were sleeping on the floors in this hostel for this night, and the staff were very unfriendly, replying that this was simply how 'business worked': I got the clear idea they felt unconcerned about selling something through agents such as hostelbookers that they were clearly unable and unprepared to offer, while maintaining maximum profits on these bookings all the same.

Liked: this hostel is farther away from the center, but its still really accessible via tram (16,24,25, and even if you have 30 minutes you can just walk from the flower market or rembrandtplein, and then central station is only another 10-20 minute walk from there), and its worth it to be farther away from the center since its quieter and less people walking by at all hours of the day. breakfast is nice and simple, theres a computer with internet for those without laptops. the common room/lobby has enough tables, and there is a kitchen though i wasn't sure if guests could at least access the microwave. the internet is free, just ask the front desk for the access code, it worked up on the third floor (dunno about the fourth though)theres only one room key, and theres only two plug outlets in the room, and one is for the tv, and they're hard to reach since its up on the wall so charging cellphones/using laptops/anything electrical is better done down in the lobby where there are a few outlets amongst the tables. some rooms don't have their own bathroom or shower, but there are at least one of each in the hall on each floor.
