This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I found it very convenient and (in Amsterdam terms) very good value given the location, especially at the weekday rate. It's a good basic budget option and the 24h availability of the reception area/hangout, with free coffee/tea, microwave, internet etc very useful when stumbling back in the early hours. Admin was a bit uncoordinated but any issues were sorted out in a helpful fashion. I'd be happy to return.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Excellent location, but dissapointing facilities in general. Rooms of 5 were 200 euros a night and the 5th person had to sleep on a matress on the floor. There were only 4 beds. The hostel is run down and the toilet/shower facilities are old and moldy. They also take pleasure in informing you of the 5% tourist tax upon arrival.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The place we stayed was really good. Sadly this website Travellerspoint.com didn't pass on our booking to the hostel so they had no record of our booking. So the place is great but this website probably won't pass on your booking to the hostel so you might be out of luck and the website gets the deposit..so I would not use this website to book again but I would stay at the hostel again.
