Liked: The showers are clean, the beds are from ikea and they are comfortable. The people working the front desk are amazing and all of their beers are only 1.50 :)

Disliked: The location is not great, I think that the hostels that are closer to AlexanderPlatz are better.

Liked: Friendly staff, good breakfast and a good location in this beautiful city!

Disliked: They said everybody should be quiet at 22:00 o'clock in the evening, but every night we woke up in the middle of the night because there was a lot of noise downstairs at the bar of the hostel. It was like there was a party every night!! We didn't sleep at all! Very bad.. Also the shower was terrible.

Liked: The rooms were quite good, the beds we're comfortable whilst the room was spacious.

Disliked: The building lacked atmosphere. You could only drink alcoholic drinks bought at the bar, with no drinking allowed in rooms. The kitchen was tiny, whilst the allocated eating area (you were not allowed to eat in the main area) was very small. Thehostel toilets were dirty with a lack of loo paper and paper towls. The music was loud in the day but then quite in the night. Overall I probably wouldn't recommend this place.

Disliked: Wifi doesn't work in the rooms, only in the lobby and location is not really a highlght. The closest subway station has only one line that goes to a not so interesting point for tourists, so you have to change lines to get to the center.

Liked: Amstel House is very clean and well kept. They offer breakfast, dinner, cheap Happy Hour drinks, and other convenient accommodations. The staff was very friendly.

Disliked: The location was a bit far from the city center. Public transportation wasn't a hassle but it would have been nice to have been closer to the center.

Liked: I really liked the kitchen and its cleanliness. The bar with happy hour was really cool as well. If you are looking to travel with a group of friends and you are under 30 looking to drink and be merry, this is a fantastic place for you.

Disliked: I was with my girlfriend and wanted to explore the city, the location wasn't fantastic for walking so we had to ride public transportation everywhere. At the end of the day I dreaded having to come back to the hostel because I felt like it was a long, long trip back.
