Firstly, if you're reading this review with a view to visiting Amsterdam and you're not sure about a place to stay, then I would highly recommend giving this place a look in. It's situated slightly outside of the centre, but its a good opportunity when walking to and from the centre to view the beautiful city and its surroundings. For...

Travelled alone here and had a fantastic time. The rooms are on the small side but otherwise well equipped, clean and comfortable. Despite not being in the middle of town like the downtown hostel, I found the location perfect, still close to cheap eats and some clubs. The bar area is excellent, makes socialising very easy. Overall would always recommend...

Really enjoyed my stay. Everything was clean, location was a stone's throw away from some great museums, and the breakfast was excellent. Amazing staff as well. Beds were comfortable and the bar had a pleasant atmosphere.

Stayed with my boyfriend in a room for 8. We had a wonderful time, the place is well decorated and we were very impressed with the toilet and shower facilities. The downstairs bar is very handy and we used the kitchen to make our lunches everyday! Good location, walked into town everyday, although we could have got the tram but...

In December 2016 myself and two other friends stayed for two nights (three days) Mon-Weds at the Flying Pig Uptown. It was a bit further away from the centre of the city than we wanted however, the walk into the main areas was very short, around 15 minutes and to the Red Light District it was no more than 25....

This place is slightly away from the happening places as the name suggests, but still gives excellent shopping options. The staff is extremely helpful and breakfast is awesome. They have special room for smoking pot as well. Rooms are comfy and bathroom is clean and spacious.

The hostel is very well located. It is not located in the craziness of downtown, but walking distance to most of the local attractions. The rooms are comfortable, but a little bit noisy.

This hostel was pretty average with an excellent breakfast for the price. The bar/smoking area was a great place to meet people at night and the bar prices were reasonable. If you can get there for happy hour it makes it more affordable of course. They could use more food options with better quality...pizza was not very good. The park...

Staying in Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
