Just back from staying 4 nights here! Last year we stayed here for 2 nights. Its a great little hostel in the middle of the red light district. Just around the corner is Dam Square and central station is only a few minutes walk away. This year we got the 'Lock, Stock and two smoking barrels' themed room, it was...

Stayed for 3 nights with a group of friends. Staff were very friendly and always happy to help! Great location. Very basic, but you get what you pay for! No communal area to cook and no mirrors in the room - bit of a pain as there were 6 girls in the room! Other than that it was great and...

The value for money here is fantastic. Heart of Amsterdam is located right between the Red Light District and there are tons of coffeeshops in the surrounding area. Although the Red Light District is a bit...seedy (to say the least) at night, one only has to walk a few minutes to find decent coffeeshops. If you are actually going for...

for experience movie theme in every room is fine, but for good rest, you definitely should find another hotel, drunken guess come on go all night, very noisy. Breakfast Menu is very limited. really not worth it.

We booked a triple room with en-suite bathroom and had the room to ourselves. The place is located right in the Red Light District (note that taxis can't get to the hostel at night cos the road will be closed for pedestrians). The room itself was alright with bunk bed and single. Basic but clean. There's a tv, wifi and...

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.
