Liked: Staff smiling and helpful, good location and good wifi signal, breakfast is normal exactly like what is offered in St christopher'inn, another hostel nearby.

Disliked: Beds aren't comfortable, they make noise. My light beside bed doesn't work, some plugs are out of work. Bar downstairs a little bit noisy during festival but room of high floor is quiet. A bit too expensive for a hostel like that maybe because of the high peak season

Liked: The staff are friendly and have knowledge of the town.

Disliked: The Private rooms are too hot and barley any air as windows do not open enough. The place looks a little worn in. The price!!! Could get more facilities and services in hotel room then the private room. Also the facilities aren't large enough to cater for the amount of people staying at the hostel ie the smoking room or the sitting room outdoors out of the back. One more thing..BREAKFAST.. Very average compared to other hostels and is in the basement.

Liked: It had everything you needed and the layout is great with an awesome atmosphere.

Disliked: No wi-fi in our 2nd floor room, only a little bothered by that, being stoned in bed you'd obviously want to have a net browse there than trek downstairs; there is an elevator.

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.
