Liked: Location was bang in the centre of town on a busy shopping street near Central Station. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean and a free breakfast always makes me happy. Smoking room was chill and the staff were very helpful. It was a really fun place to hang out.

Disliked: Paying for the storage lockers. Although they were very cheap compared to some I have seen.

Liked: The bard and smoking area were both good (made all the better by the pub quiz!) Rooms were quite spacious and clean. It also had a large kitchen which was great as it allowed us to make all our own meals.

Disliked: Nothing bad to say really, it was a great hostel...fairly expensive but for Amsterdam it was reasonable.
