    It's a pretty nice Hostel, they serve hot breakfast every morning (which is free), staff was super friendly, and the bedrooms have high ceilings but there were a couple things I didn't like: 1) The wifi is so slow. 2) The 16 person rooms are...More

    To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
    Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its
