Hostel Description

Centrally located just around the corner from the famous Heineken Brewery in Amsterdam’s Southern Canal Ring, the one-star Sphinx Hotel is a basic choice with few extras. Amenities aside, It’s convenient to many tram stops and other major city sights.

Dorms and private rooms are available. Most bathrooms are en suite, but a few dorms and larger private rooms do share facilities. Internet, linens and breakfast are all included in the nightly rate.

Reception is open 24-hours and can arrange tours. There’s no curfew or lock-out here and luggage storage is provided. If you need to do laundry, there’s a place just down the street.

"Would NOT stay here again"

2.0 guest rating


Honestly, the only good thing I can say about this hostel is the location. It is conveniently located close to a tram stop (within walking distance). The first night we arrived, we were told we had to stay in a different room. This turned out to be okay, because the room was slightly larger than what we booked. The second and third nights, however, we were moved to the bottom floor. The room was dirty, freezing cold, and both mornings my friend and I woke up with bug bites on our skin. The water for the shower was freezing, and we commented on this to the front desk. It was briefly fixed (and by briefly, the water was warm for 5 minutes and returned to freezing again). When we asked if we could switch rooms or at least get a discount, we were told no by the management.
