Lincoln Mohler thinks…

"The beds and pillows were great. I figured more people would be drinking but the main vibe is smoking so be aware. Breakfast is what you expect for free. Bread, cereal, hard boiled eggs juice etc."

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
