Liked: Awesome location, fantastically central. The free Breakfasts are really good. The hostel is clean, and the rooms are very spacious. Great vibe, and it's always bust. Staff were friendly and helpful too.

Liked: It's super close to the Central Station and Coffee Shops. And it had great lockers and non wobbly bunk bed.

Disliked: It seems checkin's are happening all day and they will ignore you to do checkin's first. Even when I was doing checkin they will ask you to wait and forget you. Showers are so weak barely any pressure there's two to an 18 dorm room. Worst bathroom of all my trip pretty shocking considering the reviews and cost to book here. Also kitchen is closed from about 10:30 pm till 12:30 you can't even get a drink from the fridge. And the first floor dorm room you will hear the music from bar downstairs vibrating till 2 am! So you end up going down because you've given up on sleep. If you come want to come to Amsterdam and drink at hostel bar and smoke in hostel lounge all day this place is for you.

Liked: It was close to all the main attractions and the train station.

Disliked: It was very noisy in my bedroom at night because it was directly opposite the bar and courtyard so you could hear the music and people talking like they were sitting right next to you.

Liked: The location was excellent...right in the heart of the most touristy area. The atmosphere at the hostel was perfect...everyone came to get down. The beds were surprisingly comfortable, and the rooms were reasonably priced...Also the staff was very helpful and accomadating to your needs...definitely stay here if you are looking for the Amsterdam experience.

Disliked: I would not recommend this Hostel to families with small children, or to older adults who don't want to be around a college student type atmosphere....other than that though...I had no dislikes or complaints.
