“Adequate but expensive. ”
Reviewed 23 June 2014 via mobile

We paid €33 per night but this seems to be a general reflection of Amsterdam. It's an expensive place. The hostel was clean, guests were friendly and the staff helpful. Slice of hot floppy bread and jam for breakfast. It was an OK stay. The area was nice but it took around 30 mins walk to get the station with a hefty rucksack. I would stay there again.

Stayed June 2014, travelled with friends

Cheap. Clean. Staff is very friendly. Beds are not that comfortable and there is no ladder to get on the upper bed. Tiny bathrooms but clean. Rooms are small in general. Simple breakfast: toast with jam or peanut butter and tea and coffee. Wifi is good. Free city maps. Easy to find. In total: it's quite okay.

This hostel was fine for the 6 nights I spent in Amsterdam, it was accommodating and the staff were helpful. The toilets/showers were not always that clean and as a solo traveler, big groups of people made it hard to meet people. But it was okay. A cute cat lives there.

Stayed April 2014, travelled solo

Was clean, easy to find and overall not too bad for the price. There are very steep stairs to climb up with your suitcases and there is no luggage room to store your things if you have a late flight. They provided breakfast too, don't expect too much from this, a bit of toast and some spreads. Also wifi never worked while there. After running around the city all day, it was good to have a place that was close to one of the main tram lines to head back to.

Stayed here with some friends on a weekend trip to Amsterdam. Stayed in a number of hostels however this place was quite poor. The common area downstairs is nice and a computer which is provided is a nice touch. The staff were nice and friendly also. However the room was cold, damp and the door didnt properly close.
