The rooms and toilets were clean, the beds were comfortable and the showers decent. The staff were very helpful and the hostel was in a great location. I could easily walk to all the major cites and there was a grocery store right down the road. Most of all the prices were reasonable for all of the above and i...

A few friends and I knew not to expect much when coming to bobs, however this was way past our league. They were doing construction and knocking out windows in our room and there was depris everywhere. Sheets were all stained, beds hard as a rock, I wouldn't even call the bathroom a bathroom and staff was rude. We shelled...

Me and three friends stayed here from Thursday to Sunday at the beginning of this month. I have done a lot of backpacking and stayed in many hostels and was not expecting much from this one seeing as it was a LOT cheaper than many of the hostels in Amsterdam for these dates. However we were all pleasantly surprised. SUPER...

Moved here after my original hostel became to expensive. It's really good location, super friendly staff, clean beds and great common room where you can relax with the other guests and you are allowed to smoke weed there if you want to. Good value for money, free coffee in the morning and cheap beers can be bought from the common...

The most disgusting place I've ever stayed in. Bathroom dirty, lockers broken, mouse in my dorm (!!!), breakfast is a joke. Staff didn't seem to care about my complaints. Way too expensive. The only decent thing was the location. AVOID!

I've made an Inter Rail through Europe and this was, by fire, the worst place we've slept in. It was very dirty, the luggage room had mice and cockroaches and everyone was smoking weed in the common area, which made it a pretty impossible place to be in. We stayed in a dorm and there were a lot of people...

This is a good hostel for a few days. You couldn't ask for a better location really, and we felt pretty safe. The room is cleaned daily and there is a small but super friendly common room. We stayed in a 16 person dorm and found it fairly relaxing but I'm still pretty sure we paid way to much then...

Moved from another hostel to here with 2 other friends during our short trip, stayed here two nights and the staff always seemed friendly and happy to help. We were staying in our own private room rather than a shared dorm, but the room was clean, tidy and much nicer than in our previous hostel. We also enjoyed the fact...

Stayed there with 3 friends in a 6 person private dorm. When we arrived the room was spotless,new sheets,swept floor.and the shower room as clean as you would ever need it for 5 nights. Shared bathroom with another dorm which at times could get a bit smelly but never to a stage where it was uncomfortable to use. Lockers are...

Staying in Centrum

Neighbourhood Profile
Centrum
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.
