    Not only does the price not match any other hostel price (40 euro a night), but the hostel is grim, dark, dirty. The dorms are horrible, smelly, the bathrooms do not get cleaned regularly. When I arrived someone had already used my bed as well...More

    Absolutely atrocious. It was cheap but then again I would have paid more money if it meant not having pubes on my pillow. When walked it, it had not been cleaned from previous users. The blankets were on the ground with beer/urine stains on them....More

    Amsterdam’s buzzing hub, with its sprawling network of
    tram rails and a seemingly constant flow of tourists
    and commuters, yields convenient access to some of the
    best sightseeing, shopping, and street life in Europe.
    Closest at hand are the Royal Palace, the quaint shops
    of Haalremmerdijk, the pedestrianized zones
    Kalverstraat and Dam Square with popular neighborhoods
    such as the Red Light District, and the Canal Ring
