This hostel was a complete rip off, expensive and very poor quality. It's clear the hostel is just aiming for the bare minimum- no common area, no kitchen, wifi only really works in bar under hostel. Bathrooms are unclean and difficult- there was absolutely nowhere to hang towels/clothes in the showers. Beds seem clean. Rooms cramped and don't get cleaned...

The location is right on the border of the red light district and it has its own 'smoking room' but the rooms were cramped, old and generally dirty with little security for your stuff. I'd only stay here again if I really had to. Beds were uncomfortable and they pack as many beds as can possibly fit into a room.

My friends and I stayed at this hostel for 3 days. The location was great as it was close to central station, the centre of Amsterdam and was in the heart of the red light district but the hostel itself was pretty average. We had to pay a ridiculous price because of kings day which sucked but went with it...

Positive: Great location in the middle of everything Reasonable cost - though I think renting a flat works out cheaper Had quad rooms - actually very spacious and bunk beds are comfortable Negative: Had no soap in dispensers and towels are not provided so take your own Early check out - they make sure you leave by 10.00 am

I have visited Amsterdam numerous times for short trips with the lads. Every time I visit I stay here, extremely good value. I always book the private rooms, I have never stayed in the shared dorms. The rooms have always been clean and so are the bathrooms. The location is absolutely perfect. The staff can be a bit moody sometimes...

Having never stayed in a hostel before I wasn't expecting much but this was good. Great location, clean rooms and bedding and a newly refurbished bathroom. We had a room for 4 and there was plenty of room. Staff were polite and helpful when asked but not in your face. I'm sure food was ok but there are more picturesque...

The rooms themselves are nice, a great view of the canal and lockers, but chairs to get to the top bunks instead of ladders and small and few bathrooms; not uncommon to have to shower on the floor above or below. Never did get the wifi to work, bar had cheap drinks and food but don't have high expectations for...

Great location in RLD and easy to get to. VERY RUDE STAFF, but then again, I've been to several hostels in AMS RLD and they were almost all pretty rude and arrogant! This place is secure, you have to keep their business card with you and wave it for them to buzz you in. Gets annoying. Smoking room was cool,...

I stayed here with my brother after being moved last minute when our other hotel cancelled. I was a bit worried about this place because it had low ratings and looked a bit dingy but I was actually surprised at how okay it was. The beds are very comfortable for hostel standards and the bathrooms were all very clean for...

Room was nice and clean. But no towels and discoverd that when got out of shower which wasn't great. Smoking room is good, all the staff were good and helpful except one very arrogant member of staff. Would stay again because it's cheap

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.
