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.
