Its a good hostel where you can been with groups of people in same room,6 bunker beds in 1 room with sharing comfort room and shower room. The hostel environment is good. It has bar and smoking area most of the attractions are near to the hostel. So one of the best cheap place to be.

My friend and I decided to pay a bit extra for the 4-bed dorm for better privacy we got a really good one on the 1st Floor. We were quite surprised there was an ensuite toilet/shower in the room (Or maybe it was just my fault I wasn't aware about it when I booked the room) so that was a...

Great location for people looking to visit all the tourist sites, and lots of places to eat. Only issue was with staff coming into rooms and removing any food and drink from bags, found that to be a bit invasive. Food also went missing from kitchen quite often. Otherwise really liked it, nice place to have a drink downstairs, and...

Amazing people we met just talking at the bar downstairs. They provide a smoking room too, which was cool. A bit of a walk to the city center, but not too bad at all. Right near a metro and bus stop if you'd prefer. Very close to the I Amsterdam sign. Room was set up well, lots of space. Bed...

The thing that sets this hostel apart from ALL the others in this city is how much it takes pride and care in its upkeep and caring for its patrons. They are beyond accommodating and have some of the best shower and toilet facilities that I have seen on my travels with the rooms being spacious with "so much room...

This is an amazing place to stay, the staff is kind and helpful. Bedrooms are clean and so are the showers and toilettes (although toilettes sometimes smell). It has a really nice bar where they serve breakfast, which is also good.

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.

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.
