Maybe one of the coolest spots in town. This very little, but welcoming hostel, offers a range of interesting rooms themed after famous Americans movies. Affordable for all the pockets. Book in advance before you won't find space! ;)

The best location if you want to party and sightseeing. Near the central station and a bike ride from museums. Very friendly and helpfull. Everything was quite clean and ok for spending a couple of days in city center. Would definitly stay again.

Visited here twice whilst travelling, brilliant set up in the 16 bedded rooms, always perfectly clean sheets, met some real good people here! Great location on the light district and great enjoyable short journey across the canals to sites you'd want to see!

Great location in the centre of the red light district. We had a private room for 6 of us which we always do when we stay in hostels. Really great room for the price. Safe, comfortable, staff helpful and the taxi this morning was bang on time. It could get a little noisy but the room we were in was...

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.
