I went here with my class for a school trip. When we first arrived the entire room smelled like a mix of sewer and chlorine. The smell never went away and we had to have our window open at all times. The doors were so incredibly loud, and if anyone on the same floor came home late the entire floor woke up. The doors had a weird alarm set on to them so if you held on to the handle for more than 2 seconds it went off - loudly. Our sheets as well had weird brownish spots on them and at first we didn’t care until a few nights later when we discovered a mouse - the spots were mouse drops. We went to the reception and they didn’t seem too bothered with this disgusting issue. When I showed them a picture of my sheets they looked at me and said: we don’t ever change those kind of sheets. We had apparently been sleeping on dirty sheets for multiple nights. We did receive new sheets however these had spots on them too (hopefully not mouse droppings as well!!!). As well the bathroom was dirty - it looked as if it had never been cleaned and was rusty all over - our water tap could never fully close so a dripping noise was present at all times. When you were to take a shower the water went all over the floor because there wasn’t anything to help stop the water.

Thanks for your review!
We provide every guest with fresh sheets, towels and bedding. These are kept in your locker, neatly folded for you to put on your bed. If you noticed these spots after a few days, it seems unlikely that they were already stained. That being said, thank you for letting a staff member know about this issue, and we hope that it was solved quickly as soon as it was brought to their attention. Our staff cleans all rooms, bathrooms and common areas daily, we're sorry to not have met your expectations. We hope that you and your classmates had a fun time in Amsterdam!

I arrived there on February 18th and from airport i got off to Rijkmuseum station. It's a bit tricky to find the hostel from the station. The location is actually good because it's in the center area. But i think they should put the name of the hotel plank bigger haha.

Room was okay (as shown in the pics i attached). They gave us respective lockers that we can lock. There are electric sockets near the bed but only the bottom ones. The upper bed ones, if you need to charge your phone then u have to put your phone in the lower bed (whom ever bed's they are).

Funny thing is there are no stairs to climb the upper bed. So if you're small, you'll be in trouble climbing up (ask lower bed instead). They don't provide toiletries but they provide a towel which a bit weird in my opinion. Some people get big towel, some get so small it looks like a bathroom door mat.

Anyways the bathroom itself is clean, not too spacious and since the floor is even in shower area and sink/toilet area, it can get flooded when u take a shower. But hot water running hard and good. There's a heater in the room. Wifi is on everywhere.

Some of the comments said the breakfast is just regular okay. But for me they are a champion breakfast for the price you pay. You'll get unlimited breads, fruits, yogurt, roll pancakes, tea, coffee, juices, smoke beef/pork/chicken , grilled tomatoes. Seriously it's unlimited. You can take again and again untill you're full.

The staffs are quite friendly. Speak good english. And dining/breakfast area transform into a bar at night.

Basically i love this hostel. I would stay there again and it's definitely recommended.

We're in the process of replacing all beds with new ones that have ladders, making it easy to hop into bed. Great to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, we hope you'll be back to visit us again soon!

We said in the hostel for two night. I was abit worried due to the negative comments I read online, but the hostel wasn't as bad I expected it to be IF given the decent rooms. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was okay/clean but the shower they could work on that. In terms of free breakfast just the basic ( toast, hot beverage and cereal) not English breakfast. Overall it's a good hostel to spend a few days.
