I stay in this hostel fo six days during a trip with my friends... Excellent hostel! It's in a central location, into the red light district, near Dam square. The rooms are confortable and clean, decorated in a cinematic theme (we were into the "Lord of rings" room), with eight or twelve beds. I recommend this hostel for an holyday...

We paid for 40e / one person / one night. It was a room of six people. There was no warm water and the heating was off half of the time. The guy in the Reception had lots of excuses but he didn't actually do anything to correct the problem with water. It was really unbelievable. So if you like...

This place is nothing to write home about or anything, but if you literally want be in the middle of the Red Light District, this is the place. You look out the window, and all you see are red lights. But just remember, if you can see out, people can see in. I felt a little bit like I was...

Whilst the overall standard of the room was acceptable for the price apart from a faulty shower, we had an issue with security. After checking out we realised we had left our iPod and docking station in the room. We returned Immediately to pick it back up. The room had been cleaned but no other guests had arrived. The iPod...

I stayed here for a week in late July 2012, and let my say that it was a treat. The TV and free WiFi kept me occupied (so much so that I forgot to go to the Van Gogh museum!), and there were power sockets at every bunk. Those bunks were so comfortable I slept for 12+ hours every night...

Nice hostel with good location. I spend one week in there last September and had a great time. Friendly staff, good breakfast and ofcourse nice people all over the world. Why not 5 stars? Shower and drain was not working properly.

Staying in Red Light District (De Wallen)

Neighbourhood Profile
Red Light District (De Wallen)
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.
