Had a great time during my stay! The staff was very helpful and friendly, and I couldn't have asked for a better location either. Right smack in the middle of things, most of which were within walking distance. Would definitely stay here again :)

We paid about 10 euros each for a 6 bed mixed dorm with en-suite on a Tuesday night in April. Very pleased with the price and we got lucky and had the room to ourselves (3 females). Staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the stay, 24hr reception is good. Everyone spoke perfect English (or were British/Irish) which was very...

A very budget and basic hostel. Rooms where clean although they are very small and the receptionist was very informative and helpful. Location is great as it's close to everything you need. As with most hostels all you are paying is a bed for the night - if you want anything else stay in a hotel!

The rooms are clean but are small. It is near to the Red Light Distrit and the people is funny. The cafe is very good, and typical of Amsterdam, coffe is really tasty. The worst of Amsterdam is the weather...

We like this coffee shop as it is away from the main city centre/red light and the riff raff. Good size shop with a seperate smoking room. Staff are helpful and attentive and no one makes anyone else uncomfortable. They have a menu which tells you how strong each type of weed is and can make recommendations for you. The...

The staff at the coffee shop were awesome. They were very knowledgeable about their product and some of the best inventory around. The chairs are a little uncomfortable, but the atmosphere and vibe was great. They have nice snacks and munchie food and everyone was as friendly as can be. I would certainly recommend a visit.
