Brilliant location, friendly and helpful staff. 5 of us stayed in the dorms, great for a base, everything is on the doorstep. Good bar and breakfast was adequate. Can smoke in the bar. Amazing price. Had a weirdo in our dorm, he didn't move from his bunk, just sat on his laptop, but he must have just loved the bulldog. Recommended to lots of friends. Wouldn't stop anywhere else

We stayed as a group of 9 friends for 2 nights at Bulldog in a private dorm room. The best asset of Bulldog is the unbeatable location right in the centre of Amsterdam, only a few minutes away from main station, coffee shops, red light district etc.

Staff is super friendly and helpful and there is free delicious breakfast included. There is a coffee shop just next to the hotel and smoking is allowed in the cool lobby/bar area of Bulldog, which is also a good place to meet people. Room size is good, cleanliness is perfect and in our dorm there were two combined shower/toilet facilities available. The only thing where I think Bulldog could improve is the design/atmosphere inside the rooms.

To sum up, it's a safe bet and I would totally recommend this place. Thumbs up!

just back from a weekend stay, wouldn't classify this place as a hostel more a hotel, travelled as a group of 7, had a private dorm to ourselves, room was very spacious with our own private shower and toilet. beds were very comfortable and clean, on arrival we were checked in straight away, were able to come and go as pleased, the food downstairs was lovely, lovely staff, all in all a great stay at a reasonable price, would definitely stay here again

a world famous hangout, frequented by stars. On the main RED LIGHT canal bank. Secure, comfortable & easy to locate.. enjoy your stay, the bar- lounge have some good food.. or pop to the coffee shop…be warned…gives appetite, laughing & a sense of extreme well being! roof top & street terrace gardens for high & low days. . all tastes catered to.. such a very mix of people stay here every time.. .

Room Tip: you can even smoke in some rooms...

Have stayed on a few occasions, our favourite place in Amsterdam, very busy over this period but we enjoyed the stay, Music in the bar can be too loud sometimes for the occasion, but overall very nice place to stay, 14 nights room cleaned bins emptied, on the occasion they was not, just ask and the staff was great, fridge did not work, unfortunately due to the Xmas time was not replaced straight away, took a few days which was not a problem, staff could not have done more. 14 day over Xmas & New Year enjoyed it that much we have already re-booked for this year.

We only had a few days in Amsterdam but this hotel was the bomb! It's super cool, cosy and has a view. They also have their own coffeeshop. Although it's in the middle of the red light district it's very safe and close to attractions.
