The hostel is in a great location but that's about it. The room I'm in is very cramped and has a low ceiling which makes getting in to the top bunk a little difficult if you don't want to bash your head in. I stayed in the third floor so I had no wifi signal and had to sit in...

The location is fantastic,in the middle of all the action and so easily accessible from the airport. The...

I was very disappointed...

Really friendly and helpful staff, nice little balcony behind the desk - no bud nor booze allowed but that isn't really of concern as downstairs, there's is an easy going coffee shop called Rookie's. The weed is good and the atmosphere is relaxed - good music! The rooms are standard, no complaints about anything really. Location wise, it's about a...

For the price that me and my boyfriend booked was alright. 2 minutes from the bus Station, where you can find direct buses (#197 and others red colour buses)for Schipol airport , as well 3 minutes away you can find the tram station. I recommed you to walk around , cause everything is really close , so there's no need...
