An Experience! Jun 24, 2010
We stayed here for three nights in August 09. The hostel is right in the heart of Amsterdam and is quite iconic as one of the best hostels and coffee shops in Amsterdam.

All of the staff were friendly and always happy to help, on check in you are told about the rules of smoking using drugs inside and outside of the hostel. Downstairs there is a small bar/sitting area where you are free to smoke weed, but not cigarettes alone. There is also internet access, and you are free to use the hostels bongs. Next door is the Bulldog Coffee shop where you can buy and smoke weed, there are many different varieties to try! The atmosphere in here is great with loud music and funky sitting areas. The dorms are bright and colourful, quite modern and comfortable with large clean bathrooms, and everything was clean! The hostel felt secure with door men outside checking your swipe card. The hostel is modern and cheerful with a lift and cool artwork scattered around. There are also lockers in the room, small but secure.

Being only one street away from the red light district, at night there are some shady characters hovering around by the hostel, but this stands for anwyhere in the centre. And i didnt feel unsafe at all with the doormen there. It can get quite noisy but it all added to the party atmosphere. We did have a bad experience with 3 american girls staying in our dorms, who insisted on knocking everyone out of bed at 4am, and bringing back groups of men who were also staying at the hostel, to have sex in our room. But this is not a reflection on the hostel,im sure they would have dealt with it if we had not been checking out the next morning!

Great place to stay with a group of people Feb 04, 2005
My friends and I stayed here in March of 2005. Parking outside can be tricky, but most of you will probably come here by plane or train anyhow. We hadn't made reservations but ended up getting a nice room for the four of us. The room was actually too big. We had one queen sized bed and two bunk beds, so there was plenty of room to sleep. The bathroom was very clean with a nice tub. The chess board tiles on the wall made me a little dizzy but then again, I guess it was suppose to have that effect since this was Amsterdam! ;)

The room itself had a couple of windows with a nice view of the canals and the red light district across the street. Don't be scared off by that. The females are not running around on the street. They have nice showcases inside the buildings. ;) It didn't bother me, that's what I mean to say by that. lol

But back to the room. The walls were painted in multiple colors. I really liked it. When you go to the website you'll see that the rooms have different themes.

Since we stayed here in the winter and it was snowing outside I should probably also mention that the heater was working perfectly. No one had to be cold.

I recommend this place for fun loving groups that just like to have a place to sleep and hang out in this beautiful, interesting city.
