    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

    Friendly and welcoming staff and comfortable, cozy rooms with individual lockers (bring your own lock, though). Clean bathrooms and breakfast is included with your reservation.

    The place is welcoming and so the staff is. You can have breakfast, which may consists of muesli, milk and fruit, or opt for a "hot breakfast", which includes pancakes, French toasts, bread with cheese and ham (to name a few). The rooms are not...More

    To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the
