This is a hostel, even thought it's sometimes listed as "Hotel" Sarphati. I thought the value was good for the money (23 Euro for a spot in a 4-bunk room). This review presumes you know what you're getting when you stay at a hostel: a shared place to sleep, shower, eat, and (if you want) meet people. That's it --...

I stayed for one night in the 5 person bedroom. The room is small for 5 people and not worth 50 euros per night at all as I could smell the toilet from my bed. Moreover the ugly furnishing (mouldy, smelling bathroom) and just one toilet paper roll in the ensuite toilet killed my desire to even spend more nights....

The sign of the hostel is a little bit hard to see, but the tramp from train station stop quite close. There are markets, supermarkets and convenient shops nearby so if you arrive late, there's still something to eat. The kitchen is quite small, and they have a microwave oven for heating food (no cooking is a minus point). I...

Worst dorm I have seen with quite high price charged. It is not qualify as a hotel even though the name said it. No lift provided. You have to be very careful with the precipitous staircase, advise to bring backpacks instead of wheels luggage. We had a 10 persons dorm, toilet is mini (I couldn't describe it as small because...

Ok for a cheap backpacker, But you wont be hanging around the hostel much because there's better places to be. The name is kind of miss leading, its NOT a Hotel it's a backpacker hostel. It is quite far from the centre of town 40min walk, but there are other things to see reasonably nearby, once you've checkout the centre...

The Sarphati hotel is in a beautiful location overlooking the scenic and lush Sarphati park. The tram stops are literally just outside the front door and it is only a short walk to the markets, nice restaurants and the vibrant Rembrandtplein. The downstairs, dining room of the Sarphati is lovely and spacious with a high ceiling and a perfect refuge...

First bad review I've written but I feel I must warn you. Stayed here whilst interrailing last summer as it was the only available place in The Dam at the time. Didn't really care where we slept most of the time but this place was the worst. Bed-bugs, crammed bedrooms, unable to open bathroom door, one member of staff was...

It's not a great hostel. But ask yourself, what did you really come to Amsterdam for? This will cater to all your needs, its grim, but its cheap. You won't spend a lot of time here, why would you, there are an abundance of coffee shops needing business. They have cats, which just crawl about your beds. Its fine for...

For €10 per night, I knew I had to set my expectations accordingly, so I wasn't surprised by anything. The location is by Sarphati Park, south of Frederiksplein and Albert Cuyp Market, so it's slightly away from the center of things, but it's also a bit quieter at night but still provides easy access to the rest of Amsterdam.

Staying in De Pijp

Neighbourhood Profile
De Pijp
Bustling Albert Cuypstraat serves as the main drag through De Pijp and the location for Albert Cuyp Market, the largest and most famous of Amsterdam’s many outdoor markets. Beyond this sometimes-frantic thoroughfare, tiny lanes beckon urban explorers in search of the latest trends and hidden gems. Nearly half the residents living in De Pijp are foreigners and a good number of them are students. Here you'll find a multitude of ethnic restaurants, great cafes and bars, and a brilliant array of locally owned shops, all catering to a broad range of budgets and tastes.
