Amstel House Hostel
Reviews for Amstel House Hostel
My main hangup with this hostel is that it was quite filthy. There was hair everywhere in the room I stayed in, the sink in the bathroom was leaking and the shower drain was blocked, so I had to take a shower standing in someone else's dirty water, which was disgusting. I don't see many other negative remarks on the cleanliness, so maybe there was just a lapse in cleaning while I was there, but I was really put off by the state the hostel was in.
I should add that the staff were friendly, the breakfast good (but not free) and the hostel is conveniently located. But cleanliness is for me the most important thing.
Pretty quiet neighborhood and stay if you're into that, but still decent options for socializing in the common areas. Good breakfast. Pretty close to public transport options and really nice zoo, and decently close to shopping areas. Rooms and bathrooms were clean and nice to use, although showering was a bit cramped. Really big lockers in the rooms, though, which is a plus.
