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.

Liked: Really good clean and friendly hostel.

Disliked: No luggage room, had to pay to store my bag before my flight. The lockable cage draw under your bed for your bag was really awkward and a pain to keep opening up.

Hi there,

We think safety and security a very important aspect when staying in a hostel. For that reason we have offer a free safe at reception and lockers in your room. We also provide secured lockers for our guests for a small fee, so you are also able to store you bags safely after check out.

We will check out the lockers in your room. Thanks for your help!

Cheers,

Liked: Two complete bathrooms in the room, awesome staff, free breakfast, guest kitchen, reasonable prices at the bar, water always available at the reception.

Disliked: It is almost a party hostel... the music at the bar goes on until 4 or 5 in the morning. Staying at the first floor made it difficult to sleep at times since the bass hit pretty hard on the room.
