The hostel is more like a budget hotel and has full access to main hotel facilities for a lot less to pay. It is in a residential area and even though its near the highway the noise wasnt an issue. THe room was a twin bed room and quite basic but you get what you pay for. No kettle unfortunately... More

Wasn't expecting luxury but not as bad as I thought. Always ask for West side Inn hotel (which is really nice) as it's part of Bargain Toko and that's where reception is. Rooms were very basic and decor needing tlc but beds were very clean and changed daily with fresh towels. Bit of a musty smell in the building. 1/2... More

I did not have very high expectations at first however was pleasantly surprised! The hostel was very well priced and had everything we needed in it. Location is quite far from the centre of Amsterdam but easily commutable via public transport. Room is very basic but as long as you're into no thrills it was an excellent stay.

I made the mistake of reading the reviews *after* booking the hotel (it was the only place available within our budget for the dates we wanted) and was really worried! Luckily it wasn't quite as bad as the reviews had lead me to anticipate, but it definitely wasn't the nicest place to stay. The set up is a bit odd...the... More

It was ok, location is quite ok cause public transport is very close. The room was a little bit poor and its cleanliness was also a little bit poor - dirty walls and dust. But at least beds were clean so its ok for sleeping.

The floor was little bit uneven and we had small problems with hot water from the sink. But nothing major! We read a dozen bad reviews about this hostel so we arrived ready for the worst. Our room had a huge bed, two chairs and a table. Nothing more and nothing less. Basic room with private bathroom. Good heating and... More

Went there for another conference. From the other reviews i was expecting bad experiences. Surprisingly it was not a case. Good location for the connection (metro/bus/tram). Friendly staff. Room is maybe indeed not a 5 star but acceptable. A bit inconvenient WC/shower. Free Wi-Fi

Its definitely one of the cheaper places you can sleep in amsterdam, and you can feel and see that by the poor features. But its still worth it, due to the close location to the center of amsterdam, you don't need more than 15 minutes to be in the middle of the city.

After camping for over a week all we wanted was a good night sleep. Unfortunately the 'Bargain' Toko did not deliver. Awaking from my first night's sleep I found numerous bed bug bites all over my legs, back, arms and chest. It was so awful I needed to spend the next night on the flooring in my sleeping bag.
