Positive Reviews

High levels of cleanliness

This hostel is frequently rated very highly for levels of cleanliness throughout the property. Guests report there to be regular housekeeping in all areas, with the rooms said to feel fresh and new. Bathrooms are also said to be of a good standard with fully functioning equipment.

On-site bar

The property features an on-site bar which opens late into the evening. Many reviews comment that this allows guests to meet each other easily and also is convenient to socialise without having to leave the hostel and venture into the city.

Friendly and helpful staff

Negative Reviews

Extra surcharges for many items

There are several items and services that require an additional charge, such as towels, locks for lockers, and toiletries. Guests feel that for the price paid, there should not be as many extra costs for small things.

Small dormitories

Several guests comment on the size of the dorm rooms in this hostel, suggesting that when they are full and every guest has backpacks or suitcases, the rooms are too crowded. Many reviews state that the rooms are too small to relax in and report having to go sit in the communal areas to get some space.

Far from city centre

This hostel is around twenty to thirty minutes walk from the city centre of Amsterdam, which dozens of guests report to be too far. For the price charged, guests expect the location to be a lot closer to the heart of the city and instead are disappointed that they have to spend additional funds commuting.
