Love the service of the people working there, the food is great (that’s rare for a gay sauna) and especially enjoy Frans’ infusions! Hope the jacuzzi keeps working be cause It’s a small sauna with few facilities so when you take out the jacuzzi it’s a big loss.

Nicest. Cleanest. Best bathhouse ever and we’d like to thank Joshua for being so welcoming and kind upon our visit. It’s always nice to feel welcomed when traveling to another country. Joshua made us feel at ease. The place is just fun. The service is great. The drinks are nicely poured and it’s just a fun relaxing place to be. Can’t wait to return. Thank you so much for your hospitality.

Think the owner should take responsibility again for the jacuzzi not working (not working for a while now). 1,5 month ago there was a small discount for the entry fee and that seems very fitting still. It’s a small sauna with little facilities so when you take out the jacuzzi it’s a big loss. Love the service of the people working there, the food is great (that’s rare for a gay sauna) and especially enjoy Frans’ doing the infusions! So when the owner applies the discount again or fixes the jacuzzi I will definitely have to be nothing but fair and remove this review and make it into a much better one.

Amazing experience. Went on a Wednesday night. It was kinda slow but still had a good time. Staff constantly cleaning which was a good sign. The whole space was clean. The staff is amazing, very friendly.The crowd was very nice and respectful. The design of the space encourages interaction.The highlight was front desk guy Joshua. He’s very handsome and sexy.

Decent place, but it's not that big. This meant that everything was tightly packed, the sauna, dark rooms, steam shower, showers, relax area, lockers, everything was pretty much next to each other. Shower setup was cramped but there was a glass wall in the sauna to see everyone showering which was kind of cool. Lube and condoms were readily available which is a plus. Some useful info:Saturday evening 8-11pm: Around 100+ people there. Median age probably around 40-45. There were more younger guys (25-30) who came later in the evening. Probably 75/25 visitor/local ratio. Even the locals were mainly foreigners living in Amsterdam. Some action going on here and there, most men were just relaxing or cruising or in their own groups.Overall it's not bad, given its location and price. I wish it was slightly more spacious and easier to talk and chat with others.

Very nice place. Sadly it's not possible anymore to smoke inside, but the atmosphere and team behind the bar totally cover it. Different themes for different days. Personally I love Sundays.

It was my first time in a Sauna and I was expecting mostly the jacuzzi to get relax but that day concretely didn't work and I was alone so I didn't feel it was exactly I was expecting for me, cause I didn't want only sex. But the team was good and the lockers safe. The only thing is I only was checking the place one hour or little bit more and I paid the entrance and it wasn't so cheap. But I can imagine if you go with a friend or someone and the jacuzzi or whirlpool working could be a good experience.

It was very busy, full of men looking for a good time. You get a free drink as part of your entry fee and it is cheaper for 25 y.o and under. The facilities are great, lots of rooms and spacious. Staff was friendly and helpful.

I have been frequenting this sauna for a few years now. There are good upsides but also flaws that seriously need attention.Upsides:_ the location is central, can easliy be reached with public transport.- the dishes served have changed and used to be better, more varied& adventurous and have become overall more expensive but it's better than no kitchen as in some saunas and it's all still very edible.- the entrance fee €24,50 is not cheap but affordable for most men who are into men. Looking at the location, the service and the facilities it's reasonable.- let's face it: everybody- and yes, that includes me- goes there to meet men and have sex. It's often very busy and there is lots of action with a very wide range of types in every sense thinkable.The downsides (that need attention!!):- it's not a large sauna which causes it to be a bit overcrowded at times- they have put a machine with cabinets with cabled in to you can connect your phone to charge it. The location of this machine as well as the machine itself are very inconvenient as the cables are short and the interior of the cabinet so dark that you can't properly see.- the sauna on the whole is a bit too dark.- the interior of the lockers are black which causes poor vision inside increasing the risk of forgetting items.- the staff does not hand our lockers randomly. They hand them out chronologically. This causes it to become very busy in one aile of the locker-section and quiet in the next.It's like this every time. It sometimes makes me question their intelligence, no offense. It really does.- the doors of the toilet-section are in such a narrow space it's a matter of time that someone will be badly hit by an opening door.- this also counts for the door to the dry sauna-section, located in an often busy corner.- what really bothers me is that the lights in the darkroom are switched on (for cleaning) unannounced. It comes off as rude and inconsiderate of the owners.- The staff is for from always consequent in the enforcements of house rules. If s staff member fancies an offender, he will be almost rewarded for breaking the rules. I have seen this happening a few times in the course of the years.- the staff has become less and less racially diverse. Diversity is seen in terms of trans or femme guys but the last few years the staff looks like one in a city in a remote part of Transsylvania. Not like Amsterdam. Everybody working there is white (there are some Arab/Middle Eastern members but that also is white).I don't see Amsterdam represented in this sauna which is a big disappoitment.- I wonder who came up with the idea of the square coffee tables in front of the bench. Numerous times I have scratched my leg against the edge because there is little space to walk. Round ones would make all the difference. It's not rocket science.

Unfriendly staff, no smoking area and for re entry they wanted my phone to make sure I wasn’t running off without paying the 1,50€ that my “free” drink was supposed to be. Seriously people what the F. My advice is go anywhere else but this place if you want actual fun. Nice staff makes all the difference. EspeciallyThe person at the bar was really awful and nasty to my friends and me

Great venue in the centre of the city.I always have a good time here, nice to relax and have a good time whether alone or with friends (or indeed new friends)Friendly staff and the venue is always clean from my experience.

Pros:- Friendly staff.- Nice ambience.- The space is clean, staff is constantly cleaning the bar, which is amazing.- One drink included in the price.- They provide a wrist band to hold your locker key that is the most comfortable I ever used.- Steam sauna with lots of space.Cons:- They don't provide free flip flops, be prepared to pay 4.50 for one as they only sell it or to get athlete's foot. First sauna I ever been that don't provide free flip flops during the stay. Weird business decision.- Jacuzzi is okay not the best and not the worst I've seen, and half of the jacuzzi wasn't working.- The darkroom is basically pitch black, which is a shame, and from my POV an identity crisis, the place shows itself as spa like, sexy, modern, sleek and I would expect some lights placed in specific spots to highlight the body shapes in a sexy way (not enough to see faces or anything), but instead, it provides a space for creeps to group there.Conclusion: I recommend the place for its spa qualities, but not for sex at all.

Been there often. Last time was to full and half of the jacuzzi was not working properly. Apart from that I like to drink natural sparkling water that they don't have. Not the best experience this time.
09:21 30 Oct 23
I was very pleasantly surprised and I must say that after the Berlin Boiler it is the 2nd best sauna I have visited in continental Europe. High attendance, cleanliness, friendly staff, many relaxation zones. I will definitely like to go back.

Visited 19.10.23 whilst visiting Amsterdam, first impressions very clean and the 2 guys on door very welcoming, overall mixed crowd most friendly great it’s on one level, probably only moan would be apart from bar whole place far to dark which would not take a lot to improve slightly, but compared to uk saunas very well fitted out.

Amazing place with great staff, professional and caring about every visitor. Good chill atmosphere inside! I very much recommend, they have everything for everyone, even tasty borscht in menu! The guys at the bar were very hospitable, espessially bartender Bogdan. Thanks for the great experience!

One of the best spots for lgbtq+ to spend time in. Nice bartenders, clean sauna, safe area and the best Ukrainian soup called Borscht.Everybody should try that 😉

Great sauna! We visited this sauna on Sunday night (thanks guy in Grindr who recommended it) and that experience was just amazing: it was busy, different people were having sex. It was fun! Sauna is very clean and good maintened. Staff is polite and cute

I have been inside before and it’s not bad👍🏻. However, today I tried going in and the bouncer asked me if I had had a drink at another bar. He said I looked drunk because I was scratching my eye and it was red. When I tried to talk to the person behind the window, he started screaming that I was drunk (to the person behind the window, as if convincing them that I was drunk) and I had no chance to speak at all. When I did try speaking, the bouncer pushed me out and told me not to come back. This reflects very poorly on SN’s ethic considering that if I had been drunk, I wouldn’t have been able to write this entire text.After 20 minutes I tried again and reasoned with the guy behind the window, who understood I was in fact sober and got into an argument with the bouncer.

Daytrip-sauna,,🙄Towels are not clean its moldy,stale.Some people need to pay 1 euro extra for a towel the other ones not.Plastic glasses for consumption not clean as well after soaps cleaning,i feel soap test in the drink.There was dirt in all facilities so its was closed for cleaning,smell was disgustingWhen steam bath got ready and clean, smell from cleaning chemicals inside was very strong,so i got dizzy and left.After i got STD,very high risk to catch it,not recommended for young or beginners or people who cares 😉Mix clientele.

I visited Amsterdam and went here with a friend to chill and have fun. Clean, small sauna, well located. Good mix of clientele, mostly friendly atmosphere in the client areas. This atmosphere changes however when you interact with the staff who seem to be deliberately unapproachable, unsmiling, officious, a bit like old-style post office workers, and acting like they shouldn't really be there( while saving the smiles and courtesy for each other) I could only give 3 stars due to this.

arrived during the pride with friends, there were a lot of people and a very long queue, great sauna, right next to Amsterdam Central Station, which was very important for us, which allows you to calmly go home by train in the morning, 1 drink is included in the price, and you can choose any drink, the staff is very friendly and kind, especially the guy in stylish clothes with long hair, he woke me up in the morning with a calm voice and gave me time to take a shower, dry, thanks to the owner very stylish sauna top level first class

20:02 07 Aug 23
My rating is 3.5/5. Visited during the Pride Season- Size - not small, but on a smaller end for a city like this- Clientelle - was predominantely older, however closer to the evening lots of younger people came it, so it evened out- Facilities - pool way too tiny, steam room way too hot, for 80% of the sauna you cannot see anything, however the lounge itself which is the only place to sit/relax is way to bright and unwelcomingThe good:- No time limits, other saunas want 2-5 euro/h for exceeding a time limit- 1 drink is included in the price, however, I still got charged for my cola because Cola Zero is not a "drink" (HUH?)- Showers very nice, compared to other Saunas at least.The bad and outrageus:-Dont you dare close your eyes for a second when relaxing in a living room, a male Karen will spawn out of nowhere in seconds next to you a tell you "Do Not Sleep!" (happened to me and 3 other guys during my single visit)- You need to pay for french toilet (hose)- No smoking area, reentry costs 5 eurosIs it worth a visit when on Vacation in Amsterdam? Yes. Worth travelling extra for this place? No, go to Germany

NOT Recommended!!I’m really very sorry to write about my very bad experience in this awful sauna!I had some amazing vacation days in Amsterdam, but the worst day was the sauna day1- super DIRTY!! dirts ( condoms, sperms, tissues and more) are everywhere literally everywhere! on the floor, by the cabins, lockers, in the hallway and bathrooms!! I’ve been to too many saunas in Europe specially in Germany, and I never saw a filthy dirty sauna like this! I was really disgusted all the time!2- COLD showers only and NO privacy at all…when you take the shower, you will be observed throughout the glass wall from the people in the sauna room!3-NO slippers available! Even if the excuse that there were too many customers, the management should be prepared! They are only slippers, not so complicated or expensive thing to provide with! By the way, when there are slippers on other days, you have to buy them !! with about four euros!!!4- some dark rooms are super Dark!! You can’t see anything!!! It would be better just to see the faces!!5- when you lay down by the bar, the AC is above you and it’s windy and cold!6-the design of the Jacuzzi is very stupid ……I and minimum for five people I saw we could’ve easily fell down because of the not visible steps and bad design!Also You should press a button always to let the bubbles go on, thats fine but this button is almost off and doesn’t work. You should try many times until it works!The only good thing was the security man at the door !I’m really very sad and upset that I wasted my money and time in this vacation on this very dirty and bad sauna!If you really wanna go to a good sauna, go to Berlin, Essen, or cologne …

Massage therapy EXCELLENCE from Harald. If you're thinking of making a booking with him, then don't hesitate to make an appointment with him as you will not be disappointed!! I had an hour with him today - and not for the first time - and his skill and technique were absolutely phenomenal. I left feeling completely energised but thoroughly relaxed and rejuvenated too, from head to toe. I honestly can't recommend him highly enough. Now floating home in total bliss.

This is a male-only sauna for gay men near Centraal station Amsterdam. If this is your thing, I certainly recommend dropping in here. Be ready to spend at least €15 euros or more for a visit. They provide one towel and a locker key. You need to disrobe before entering the sauna area. I recommend bringing shower shoes!There is a pricy little bar area and not sure how you pay for things with no pockets or phone. Yes, your phone does not work here, no reception, which is a good thing I suppose.Lots of little rooms to slip into or showers. The hot tub is crowded and I there was only one when I was last there. Lockers are small and crowded too.It is very popular after the last train at night because guys go here to “hang out” since the bars may be closed and waiting for the next train.Definitely worth a visit.

first of all, the jacuzzi really was not hot enough by far..i really was the least sexy experience of my life, basically just a bunch of people in towels circumambulating between 5 or 6 dark rooms without looking at each otherexcept for a few very good looking people nobody else seemed to get any responseanyway it was clean as these things goso if you think that this is your kind of thing, its not bas

I visited on Sunday 16/04 at around 5pm and the place was rammed. I had a fantastic time - there was a great mix of guys in terms of age, build and sausage size. I’ve been to several saunas in London and one in Bilbao and this was by far the best I’ve ever been to. Really well run and great guys visiting. If I lived here, I’d definitely be a regular. Was pretty impressed by the number of huge sausages as well. There were some of the biggest I’ve ever come across.Highly recommended.
09:04 30 Mar 23
I visited yesterday night and I have to say the location is very nice, not too big, but big enough if you are a first-timer like me. It is also fairly clean. People working there are really really nice too.I went there on a Wednesday evening as it is branded as a gender fluid night, and I was expecting more diversity and action. I would say it still looked like it was 95% gay men, so I couldn't quite get into it as I wanted to (as a man who appreciates women and trans women).Will give it another go on a different Wednesday to see whether it may be different. For the moment it's 3 stars (location is great but the gender fluid concept might be improved). Would love to raise the rating to 4 or 5 stars!

I was there recently, the sauna is still good but it seems worse than it used to be, everything is worn and a bit damaged, the mattresses in the cabins are worn out and should be replaced, the sauna is small and cramped, lack of space, the owners should think about a bigger place. on the plus friendly service, and good facilities

I enjoyed my time there. First time I didn’t get any luck went during the day time. Went later in the night around 4:30 am and was lucky enough to just have to pay 5 euro entry free . It was quite fun stayed until 7 am. Alot of fun can be had just have to loosen up and expand your horizons.
13:31 20 Dec 22
A drink included is nice but the facility doesn’t feel like it’s at it’s fullest potential yet.. coming from der boiler in berlin always, the floors here were very cold in most hallways to walk on and there is no music playing to keep a vibe if so it’s very very quiet in only certain areas, so it’s kind of awkward silence until someone makes it obvious that they’re playing. no audio in cinema room, and the hot water showers do not get hot. a very lukewarm. warmest one is in steam room but still can’t enjoy the showers as they don’t get hot. overall a 2/5 experience, has potential.

I have been to so many saunas in so many cities/countries. NZ is by far THE best gay sauna! it is easy to reach (located near the central train station), has always nice and diverse crowds (it doesn't matter if it's Sat 2 am or Sunday at 3 pm), has delicious food, and it is regularly cleaned. there was not a single time I left disappointed. Everyone who works there is super lovely. The only down side is that you can't smoke inside anymore but it's for the best for everyone.

Very fun environment with lots of space to cruise. Crowd is mixed but you can always find someone who’s your type. Area is mostly clean but I don’t expect everywhere to be spotless at a bathhouse. Bring shoes to be safe.

the best gay sauna in Amsterdam. very nice decoration,lots of surprising corners . friendly staff, jacuzzi, dry sauna and steam rooms complete graciously the cozy atmosphere in the bar and the restaurant. mixed crowds of locals and tourists. age from 25 to 65. some really good looking, some super friendly and that's the recipe of a good time. i have spotted a few pay boys, but they didn't bother me. come with flip flops as the floor gets quite slippery later in the evening 😉
15:49 24 Sep 22
I liked it here just go in relax and unwind and I visited on a Tuesday not knowing it was naked sauna day but thought oh well as in Rome.We all born that way was actually nice to just unwind in the steam roomBeen about 10 times now when I visit Amsterdam

+++ 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.
21:47 23 Aug 22
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.

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.)

Well i didn't really like the experience ! it was CLEAN that's a good point but SO EMPTY and expensive for what it offers, vert small bath, small cruising and not that much rooms :/ i prefer Paris saunas for GAYS.

Wheelchair accessible and wheelchair friendly! The staff, the clientele, and atmosphere was chill, comfortable and friendly. The staff made sure that I was comfortable and was attentive and helpful.

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.
