Lonely Planet
Amsterdam’s first self-proclaimed ‘boutique hostel’ plays up its salacious past (the building was once home to a high-end brothel) in some themed bunk rooms.
The Telegraph
A former bordello is given new life as a hostel specifically directed at first-time travellers. Funky, cheerful décor combined with a warm welcome offers a fun yet home-from-home feel....
