Awful stay here, was such a downer on my time in Amsterdam, would not return under any circumstances or recommend.
The single pro: It's well located near the train station and within easy walking distance to a lot of attractions, including the red light district...More
When I stayed there I managed to get a low rate for my dorm, and there were plenty of vacancies, that was the best part. But also the location was great in the sense that it was possible to get to the hostel by foot...More

To visit Amsterdam and not explore De Wallen (the Dutch name for this area) or to go only to gawk at its saucier aspects would mean missing the opportunity to view some of the city’s most picturesque canals, historic landmarks, and impeccably presented examples of traditional local architecture – not to mention Amsterdam’s own Chinatown, Europe’s largest Buddhist temple and more local treasures. Sure, there are some
less salubrious activities drawing the curious to this age-old part of time. Nevertheless, the Red Light District is still a very safe and incredibly fascinating area where at the turn of a corner you can be transported from the dingy glow of modern day neon red to a glorious 16th century Delft blue dreamscape.

No, the lockers are narrow. But there'll be room under the beds and just keep your valuables in the locker. You needed your own lock at this hostel, take a smaller to medium sized lock, not a big one! This place is great for location and the communal bathrooms means no wait for a shower, I highly recommend it :)
