Customer review

21 July 2009

Liked: First, it was a really narrow and really close house. The atmosphere was stifling too much. Just in the small room, there were 16 people. it was too much, even we didn't wanna go into the hostel for every nights. What is worse, the airconditional was broken and they didn't fix it during our stay. so it was pretty hot. even the weather was not so hot, we couldn't sleep whole of the night. The only good thing is there's a party every nignt, but for the people who wanna rest, it's horrible. when I wanted to enjoy it, it is nice party to meet people. but when i wanted to sleep, NO!! I couldn't sleep until 3 am. They never consider the people who want to sleep.

Liked: Nice place to stay. Really chill. They were doing some re-modeling when I was there, so they didn't have internet, which kind of sucked. But it was close to the Heineken Experience and some other cool stuff.

Liked: Its currently under construction, so a lot of the facilities are not available. They are very helpful and allow you to use all the facilities at their other (Downtown) location, however. I had no problems with the noise from construction. It was a very nice location, near the Vondelpark

Liked: The staff were really cool, and i like the way you can go to the bar at either the uptown or downtown one when you are staying in either. It is located near good pubs and clubs and you can get trams to the coffee shops, red light district etc.

Liked: I liked how they hired travelers, so that they constantly had new youth working there. I also enjoyed the set up of the interconnections between the: tv room, bar, computers, kitchen, and outdoors. Also liked the comfortability of smoking in the kitchen and outside, wish they still let people smoke in the bar though.
