We stayed here for only one night but i'm so glad it's over. The staff was rude, the man at the reception came into our room in the middle of the night (3am) for absolutely no reason and went out only because me and our friend saw him in the dark. It's unecceptable! What if i was naked changing clothes...

I've never been to prison, but watching shows like prison break and 60 days in jail gave me a good idea of what it would be like. Unfortunately I had the displeasure in staying in bobs hostel which I'd describe as prison. Waking up with a hangover to white washed walls and cast iron bunk beds me and my cell...

Bobs youth hostel has all the charm and glamour of a crack den. Not to mention the fact that it was 15 minutes before check out and a very angry Bob just let himself into our room and demanded we leave. Very rude, very cracky.

The location is nice. It is a walking distance to Amsterdam Central Station. The rooms are big, but you may find them a bit noisy. The toilets are clean. The staff is friendly, we did a walk through booking and were really happy to get a room at the last moment.

I went to Amsterdam for 3 days with 3 of my friends, and as we didn't have the chance to book earlier, Bob was so lucky to give us a bed with no shower or toilet for 55 Euros :) 55 Euros for a bed, comfortable thou, but in a very dirty place, and with terrible stairs if you have...

Bobs hostel is great value and a brilliant atmosphere for meeting new friends. the staff behind the desk were very helpful and the hostel had a great vibe. if your wanting cheap and cheerful accommodation in Amsterdam: go to bobs. only downside is that the beds weren't very comfy, which was not fine when sober...

Where do I start? The welcoming (because it is called like that) but it is more a guy taking your money and throwing you things at your face without a smile or anything polite word. Then the room, lets not even talk about the dirty bahtroom or the grafiti style of the room, I have to admit the bed was...

The hostel was relatively expensive as far as hostels go, but for Amsterdam this was the cheapest hostel we could find at the time. The location is very good, but there is only a very small common area. I gave it a plus because there was a piano, however the common area was also the waiting area for people checking...

I stayed there just one night but it was terrible . Location is well because it's on prostitutit's street . You can see them from your room's window. So it's disgusted . And staff was so rude . He didn't help me to show dormitory . Because dormitory and reception are not in same build. I won't stay there again...

Stayed here with 3 of my mates when we were over for the Diynamic Festival in Amsterdamse Bos, ended up in 8 man dorm with 4 sound Germans. Location is great, price is even better. A lot of the other reviews on this place are misleading, as far as hostels go you would have to be really picky to fault...

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
