They are surrounded by pretty streets and canals with plenty of restaurants and shops just around the corner. Both hostels are very easy to reach from the airport or train station. Larger groups will be split over our 2 locations which are less than 2km apart, just a 20 minute walk via Dam Square which marks the centre of town.
