Liked: Bar downstairs. Separate smoking room so that the rest of us wouldn't stink.

Disliked: Had to go to bar area to get wifi, where the music was needlessly loud even during the day. Too many beds in my door, hard to get quiet time. Location required some walking, but nothing too bad.

Liked: Great vibe, the bar is really cool, an excellent way to meet people.

Disliked: The stairs!!! The hostel has 5 levels, with no elevator! The stairs are super steep as well, so trying to lug your luggage and backpacks up all those stairs is a nightmare, especially if you are staying on the 4th level (like we were). Everytime you want to leave or you come back to the hostel, it's an effort to go up and down all those stairs all the time. Flying Pigs, please consider investing in an elevator!! There's also no airconditioners in the rooms, so if Amsterdam is experiencing a heatwave (as it was when we were there), the rooms can get unbearably stuffy and hot. But other than that, it's a great hostel to stay at!
