This is the best gay sauna in Amsterdam, even the best of all the European cities I've been to, friendly staff and good facilities...hope here can be expanded, bigger and more luxurious in the future, that would be perfect …

+++ A New and fresh review from me im coming here since the opening. And NZ created some wonderfull changes in the last years. And the staff is friendly and dont forget the cleaning staff. Its hard word sometimes to make it clean again but sometimes i report some things i see or People not feeling good.+++ For me is NZ the best gay sauna in the netherlands and it stays populair and from me it 40min to drive so what else😜☺️+++ And dont forget the security is verry good and social andfriendly.And remember guys its not allowed to bring drugs inside!.- The only thing is that the smoking area got away. But if u give the staff your key and some personal stuff you can smoke outside at the intrance. But mostly im the only one to do that.- Only when you have poppers with you, you must buy everytime New ones(€15p.piece) that i dont like so thats my second minus pointIf u have some questions Just ask me.

I had a wonderful night on last Sunday, friendly staff and amazing environment.But I got a problem of drinks when I was checking out.The system showed that I ordered 2 drinks but the truth is my friend and I ordered 1 drink each at the same time. I guess the staff at bar thought I treated my friend a drink. So he added 2 drinks on my number. I think people always pay their own drink in Netherlands. It's not common someone treats others a drink especially in the sauna.So I suggest that always add drinks to someone who ordered it.I'll absolutely recommend.

I am from Canada and I was there just before the pandemic started. I really enjoyed the sauna and have great memories. Very clean and warm people all around.Will be visiting soon again.Question: What are the Covid restrictions? Since I am from Canada and our QR code don't work in Europe. What are our options to enter the sauna? We have paper copy of our full vaccinations. Do you except that? or we need to get something in Amsterdam when we arrive?

Been visiting last Saturday evening (19/03) after a long absence. New style, clean and well maintained. Only issue I had was with one of the employees there who was very nosy and loud. Better if someone tells him to mind his own business and remarks to himself when he comes to "pick up" glasses from the dark area...

No smoking made many stop coming so negative. Do not tell me that the law of the Netherlands should be applied. The sauna is not a bar so you can go out to the street to smoke without clothes. There must be a smoking room

Best sauna ever! Compact but great facilities, large steam room, spacious lounge and big dry sauna. Thanks to the friendly staff, I’ll definitely be back!

A lot of money went into the original development and the facilities are good.Recent removal of the smoking room (legislative changes) are not the saunas fault, but it now feels too open and bright, like a school canteen, so not as relaxing. They need to lower the lighting or put a colour in it, and maybe petition the now huge sitting area so it doesn’t feel like a waiting room at central station. The place needs to pay attention to the physical experience because staff have been generally uninterested or downright rude for many years. I would recommend it despite the stafff. It’s always clean, often very busy and entrance and drinks are fair processie etc.

They do not recognize international (paper) covid vaccination certificates. I have been to 4 European countries, and my Yellow Vaccine booklet & Dutch (paper) vaccine certificates have been accepted everywhere. Even on the airlines. Don't bother. Pathetic.EDIT: to owner's response. The "CoronaCheck app" is still not working for over 3 million Dutch residents, and many more foreigners. Until the technical issues are resolved, all venues have been requested to be reasonable in the application of proof of vaccine/test/recovery. Your company has decided not to be.WARNING TO AMERICANS: Your CDC vaccine certificate (on paper) is valid in Germany, Spain, Italy, Greece (and probably many more countries). It is NOT valid in the Netherlands. I'm traveling with an American friend of mine. We are welcome in venues everywhere, except in the Netherlands.

Hello.I have to pay twice for re-enter card.And if you can't prove of your payment its powerless.In this place (general) you never get any recipe for any consumption.Water temperature for the sauna facilities not adjusted well to feel comfortable.Smells urine and feces in the darkroom areas.Injoy🙂.

I went to NZ sauna twice in last 3 weeks. First time when i went with my friend we needed to make a reservation and it was 50 people max allowed inside and this time it was amazing. Mix guys like young, middle age guys and a few old guys and all was ok. But when NZ sauna change rules for QR-code ( i did QR cause i went for party but before party i went to sauna) i went once and i can say it was terrieble. I went when it was raining and it was really really a lot of guys 60+ not mixed age guys. I know that sauna want more people but still a lot of guys has one vacc and need every time make a test but atm i don't recommend a NZ sauna (without QR but woth reservation was really beter.)

I went on a towel only night and it was quite busy, all types of guys. Lots of areas to play in private and public, dark rooms were fun. Ample showers and bathroom kept clean, lounge area with a separate smoking room was quite comfortable as well. Bartenders were very nice and very cute.

Great place. Usually very clean and tidy unless it’s super busy. They all do a great job there. All the responses about the horrible staff make me laugh. All or most of the guys are great and very friendly. Some have even become good friends.My partner and I always feel welcomed and have a great time. Wish I had a sauna like this at home.Thanks for the fun time guys.
