It's a pretty nice Hostel, they serve hot breakfast every morning (which is free), staff was super friendly, and the bedrooms have high ceilings but there were a couple things I didn't like:
1) The wifi is so slow.
2) The 16 person rooms are...More

Didn't stay here, but ate in their restaurant. Not run on a commercial basis, so prices are very reasonable. Atmosphere is very pleasant and the staff run it as a Christian service for visitors to Amsterdam. Both this and its sister restaurant and hostel elswhwere...More
My friend and I stayed here for three nights while interrailing. As we booked late and at a weekend, there were only beds in a 16 bed girls dorm left. I was a bit anxious about such a big room but it was actually a...More

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.

No, the lockers are narrow. But there'll be room under the beds and just keep your valuables in the locker. You needed your own lock at this hostel, take a smaller to medium sized lock, not a big one! This place is great for location and the communal bathrooms means no wait for a shower, I highly recommend it :)
