The beds are like sleeping on wooden planks. They might as well just throw the mattresses away. The bathroom was dirty and drafty yet somehow managed to be stuffy. The whole room was cold. And the staff are rude.

It's probably the worst hostel I've been to, and I've been to many. We were charged 60€/night (each) to sleep in a musty-smelling, derelict and tiny dorm. There is no room to socialise with fellow travellers and most of the staff-members -but one- were unfriendly. All you get for breakfast is bad coffee and sliced bread served in another hostel....

THEY ENTERED MY PRIVATE ROOM AND COPIED MY CREDIT CARDS. I spent in Amsterdam Hostel Uptown just one night with five friends of mine. We were sharing a private bedroom for six people. We did the check-in and I left my wallet hidden in my private bedroom, containing two credit cards (which I didn’t used in my whole stay in...

Here's why: Dirty, overpriced, no common room the staff are incredibly unhelpful. The rooms are terrible they smell and aren't cleaned regularly neither are the bathrooms. For the "free breakfast" you are sent down the road to a friends cafe for bread and jam. Spend the money in Amsterdam and get a hotel, your stay will be more pleasant in...

Too expensive for the bad costumer service and uncomfortable beds. Stayed here for a few nights in the fantastic city of Amsterdam. We rented bikes at the hostel and had a great time riding along the canals, even though it was kinda scary bike-traffic! Too bad the staff at the hostel kind of ruined the experience upon leaving the hotel.

It was fine, it's a hostel in the middle of Amsterdam. It's expensive but it was high season. If you want better then plan ahead. Checkin/out was painless. Never met the 5 other guys I shared a room with.

This is the worse hostel/hotel i have ever stayed in. I would have rated it as no stars if possible. When we arrived, staff were disgustingly unhelpful, not greeting us and just grunting in response. We were told our room was on the forth floor (which in itself was not an issue), however, there was no working lights or windows...

The 6 bed dorm was insanely small, the beds also, with no ladder to get to the higher beds, ceiling very low. You can barely sit upright on the higher beds. The location was good, and the staff was nice. But the breakfast was in another building.
