Very social hostel it's easy to meet people in the smoke room or bar and the location is close to central station. I went as a solo traveller and met so many people in the 2 days that I was there would definitely recommend.
I've stayed in a lot of hostels but kings day in Amsterdam at the flying out was one of the best! Loads of lovely people and great vibes if there is a better location in Amsterdam then I'd be surprised!More

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.

Thank you for your question and interest in staying here! Indeed, it is a lot down to your own preference. We have one 6 bed female dorm with an ensuite. We also have rooms like our 8 bed and 6 bed single which do not have ensuites. Perhaps for a solo traveller it is more preferable to have only beds in the room and an outside bathroom and shower? We also have really large dorms on 32 and 18, but unless you have experienced this, I would opt for a smaller dorm to start ;) We have nightly bar events to help get our solo travellers together :)
We hope this helped! See you soon :) The Piggies
