          Peaceful, clean, well organized and friendly. If you're looking for this and ONLY this, look no further. It's a Christian hostel, which means no drugs, booze, sex or whatever you might associate with the city. I got lucky my dorm was empty and spent a...More

          Hi Julianna, Thanks for the review. So true what you say about steep and narrow staircases. Dutch are so much known for their unique (and most inconvenient) staircases! We feel you! Please, come back soon!
