        Has a the busy feel of a youth hostel, but the hefty price "€110" keeps the scruff out. Seems to be the choice for back pack travellers though

        Located in the Red Light District, and not too far from Central Station, this hostel is an okay place to stay at. And around 5 minutes from Dam Square.

        The rooms have a movie theme to it. I stayed in the one with the James Bond theme. Breakfast is all-you-eat, continental kind, and not bad.

        There are some drawbacks to this place. Each room has a bathroom of its own, which can be an issue, when everyone in the room, gets up around the same time. Plus only 1 key per room, so that can be a problem if someone accidently walks away with it.

        From the hostel's window, you can see the Red Light District, and see the booths of prostitutes. Noise can be a factor, not only with people, but the geese in the canal making annoying sounds.

        Overall, not a bad place to stay, at cheap rates.
