This was the first hostel we have ever stayed in, and yeah it was ok I guess. We were there for two nights whilst backpacking Europe and it ticked all the correct boxes. I especially enjoyed the free breakfast, it had everything you needed, the place was nice and clean and the staff all nice friendly. My only concern is...

This is a great hostel, always busy with people coming and going. My 3 friends & I were in the 8 room dorm and it was clean and comfortable. The smoking room is very handy with a pool table and the bar is nice too. The location is decent, right next to Vondelpark but roughly 30mins walk from the centre...

This hostel was pretty average with an excellent breakfast for the price. The bar/smoking area was a great place to meet people at night and the bar prices were reasonable. If you can get there for happy hour it makes it more affordable of course. They could use more food options with better quality...pizza was not very good. The park...

This hostel is very busy and popular, people are coming in and going out all the time. And that means also a good party if you're into things like that but at the same time your night sleep might get disturbed. Note that you can get earplugs from the reception. Our dorm room B4 was a great choice since it...

Stayed here for a week because of its proximity to the museum district. It is a busy hostel with the bar and smoking room full most evenings.

This is considered a "party hostel" and we had a great time! The rooms start from 4 occupants to 12 i believe. We had 8 occupants; 4 bunk beds, outlets and lights next to every bed, shower and toilet in room itself (although i suggest using the showers in the hallway-- much more space). Everyone has a locked drawer under...

I've been staying in hostels in Amsterdam for over a month. I've stayed in the flying pig downtown and the flying pig beach. Although this hostel is nice, in comparison to the other two it has quite a cold atmosphere. It is my least favourite out of the three hostels, the staff a rent quite as friendly, the guests are...

Best hostel in all of Europe. Wonderful staff who were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Enjoyed the smoke room and made use of the kitchen (was very tidy and practical). The bar was reasonable and the location was great- very close to shops and a short walk down town!

Had a lovely stay here, would definitely recommend to people travelling around and especially for short stays. Rooms were a great size, individual showers and toilets. I loved our double bed bunk bed! Close to everything you need, you can hire bikes from reception (which is definitely recommended for the Amsterdam experience!) I look forward to visiting you again!

Great location near the museums, garden, and within a short walk to good restaurants/bars. Rooms are good, showers and toilettes are very small but clean. Didn't find the super communal atmosphere for solo travelers as many others described - a lot of folks came in groups, but on the first floor is a bar with people hanging out throughout the...

Neighbourhood Profile
Museum Quarter (Museumkwartier)
Top sites to see in this attractive and affluent part of town include the Rijksmuseum and the Van Gogh Museum, to name but two of the highly acclaimed museums of the aptly named Museum Quarter. And if you need a break from all the fantastic art, there’s the Neoclassical Concertgebouw music hall and Vondelpark, the city’s largest park. Shopaholics and luxury brand connoisseurs will love exploring the high-end shopping destinations of PC Hooftstraat, Van Baerlestraat, Cornelis Schuytstraat, and Jacob Obrechtstraat, where even the shop window displays are of museum quality. In the evenings, when the museums close and the daytrippers head home, the area becomes a quiet oasis of calm with a sophisticated and urbane tone.
