Liked: It´s a good hostel

Disliked: They don´t have a luggage room, and have a lot of stairs (like in all Amsterdam, but maybe if you put the luggage room or the exit in the first floor....) it´s very unconfortable move in the hostel with your bags

Liked: The location is very good, near some good and cheap restaurants.

Disliked: This hostel is almost a coffee-shop, with lots of people going there to "smoke" - if you are not going there to do this, then don't go.

Liked: Its a healthy walk away from the RLD, giving u the chance to digest whatever "meal" you ate. Reception staff were very nice and helpfull. Towels are free with deposit

Disliked: The map they give you is crap. The bar is small and always crowded especially at breakfast time. The showers aren't hot. 6 bed dorm is tiny and sleeps 8 people, only half of which had a personal locker. Quite expensive but hey, its Amsterdam I guess. Wifi doesn't reach the rooms.

Liked: I liked the bar area and the atmosphere of the hostel.

Disliked: I REALLY disliked the bathrooms (about two stalls per floor that were incredibly cramped) and I found the map they gave us very confusing and unhelpful.

Liked: The staff were super nice and laid back.

Disliked: The kitchen is considerably small and there was not enough space to store food. Also there is not a place to just chill that is not the smoking room or the loud bar.
