Have stayed here on numerous occasions and always enjoyed it. Rooms clean and staff are all friendly. Location is perfect!! The 32 room is fine but I prefer to stay in a 4 room with just my friends however this is a bit more expensive.

If you're travelling alone, don't know anyone in Amsterdam, this is a great place you'd want to stay at. Friendly people all round, cool chill area where you'll be able to meet like minded people. Everyone was very helpful and the bar gets busy at night :) Rooms were very comfy and showers were clean... although food is good and...

This is a great hostel if you want to have fun in Amsterdam. Common areas are excellent. The smoking room is really comfortable and you get the chance to hang with lots of people. Facilities are kind of old and not so clean, but the vibe in the hostel is great and makes you forget about that. Location is excellent,...

I booked myself a day excursion for Amsterdam from Paris. This hostel was very close and convenient from the red light district. Everyone there was very friendly, and they offer you a pamphlet with tours/site suggestions. The staff was very helpful as well. I did not eat breakfast prior to leaving the next morning, and I only stayed there as...

The hostel is extremely easy to find as it is just a 5 minute walk from the centraal train station. We were greeted by friendly and helpful staff who allowed me to check in early while they cleaned my room. It was the perfect amount of fun/crazy with comfortable and practical. The smoke room is fun and always welcoming. Free...

We booked this place as it is in the middle of the city and we (I) wanted to try out a hostel again (it is a few years since the last time). Our first impression at arriving was that it was loud and busy in the reception area, which is also the bar and breakfast area. We had to wait...

Stayed here with 2 friends for 5 nights. Perfect location and easy to find from the train station. Staff are friendly and the atmosphere very chilled. It has a smoking room and the hotel is constantly busy. Met loads of other travellers. We booked a 4 bed room so that we didn't have to share. Very clean. Would stay again...

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
