Most awesome place I've ever stayed in! The staff are the most wicked people I've ever come across and you should definitely keep em around for next time!!! Great party vibe and being right next to the park makes it much better than the down town.

04 Jul 2010 - Reviewer Jordyn Mackonka
This hostel has so much character, its hard not to fall in love with it. From the bar area, to the pillow room, and the terrace in the back, you'll find a comfy place to meet all sorts of people. The staff were friendly, and put together some very awesome playlists. The location is great, its within walking distance of the many sights Amsterdam has to offer. The rooms were quite basic, and the bathroom situation could use some improvement, but I thoroughly enjoyed my time there!

We arrived late at night and everyone was fantastic there. The party was in full swing and we had a blast. For the price and the location it was worth it.
