"First hostel I've ever stayed in. Was worried before I got there as many people had said hostels are awful and you're better off paying the extra money to get a hotel room. They were SO wrong! The…"

Liked: Great hostel, one of the best I've stayed in for definite. Really good atmosphere with a nice bar and smoking area. Got a really good map with handy points for where to eat/drink etc in the city, helped a lot to stay clear of the more expensive places.

Disliked: The room we had was nice and clean, but slightly unnecessarily cramped it seemed due to the layout of the beds. One other thing I remember was that I'm sure it advertised free use of a luggage room but then on the day we left we had to pay for lockers. Minor niggles though.

Liked: it is a great place to meet people. big party vibe but also chilled out in the smoking room. locations pretty good about 10min walk from leidesplan/tram stop but quite far out from the centre. right next door to vondelpark. lockers were those pull out things under your bed. however, for the money you pay the facilities are quite bad. it is not clean at all. toilets had vomit. we had broken heater and lights. no hot water in our room. we even had a cat in our room. our room also had a double bed bunk bed. the front door was always open. staff were pretty unfriendly and not particularly helpful. we were told at breakfast (standard cereal and toast) that there were no eggs because she (aussie chick) couldn't be bothered making them. the stairs are really narrow and there are lots to climb.

Liked: Nice place, located near a good set of amenities etc. nice people, helpful staff, offers a range of things to do, gives you a map with useful things marked on it.

Disliked: Bit of a way from the central station, could be seen as fairly overpriced, had to pay to store luggage etc after check-out, surprising that the dorms are mixed-sex, people who came in late turned the light on disturbing other people who were sleeping - perhaps a light for each bed would be useful?

Liked: The quirkiness of the bar and the smoking room, the proximity to Leidseplein, the really helpful staff and the cat that lives in the building

Disliked: Breakfast choice was quite disappointing, every cereal being offered was full of sugar. I realise it's a hostel breakfast so it's not going to please everyone, but just once, it'd be nice to eat a breakfast cereal that is not laced with 10 tablespoons of sucrose.
