Went to Amsterdam to meet a pal who's living out there. Expensive city so wasn't surprised by expensive accommodation, but for the price this was really limited with a fairly pish atmosphere.. went through to Ghent and Antwerp a few days later and stayed in hostels there, far better atmosphere for a far better price..

The location of the hostel is as central as one could ask for. Just 2 mins from the train station too and it’s a you get what you pay for kinda place. (with a good vibe) Breakfast is provided and served between 8:30 to 10:30. The spread is limited but good enough. The bar is well stacked and reasonably priced....

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe. Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring hardly more than a moment’s stroll away. With the well-connected Centraal Station as Centrum’s base, it's easy to travel farther afield via one of the city’s iconic trams.
