The Hostel Aroza was the cheapest night we could find in central Amsterdam and in perfect location. It is clearly signed from Amsterdam Central Station & is in perfect location to Amsterdams attractions.
However, there were some issues with the hostel. When coming back to our room we found other people in the room and all of our property had disappeared. After worrying about our things being stolen, we found out that we had been moved into another room without being informed. We found our things thrown into a pile. On inspection we found that items were missing. It was only later that night that we saw the staff with it. Obviously we weren't very impressed. On another occasion the manager was extremely rude to a member of the group for no apparent reason, shouting in the reception area and smashing a glass in the bin.
The only saving grace for the hostel was the location & price. I wouldn't recommend this hostel to a friend.
