Liked: The staff was very kind and helpful. This is a very lively hostel is walking distance to restaurants, red light district and "cafes". The hostel caters to a younger crowd like most hostels and is well maintained. They even have a cute cat that roams the bar every now and then. They have WiFi at the bar but gets kinda spoty when I lay in my bed on the 3rd floor. The food is basic but above most other hostels: fruit, egg toast juice/tea and an assortment of jams. I will for sire return!

Disliked: The drinks at the bar are incredibly expensive and unfortunately.it is very hard to come by a shop that sells hard liquor. I guess that is the price you pay when you have smoke shops everywhere. The bunk beds are a bit low, even for someone who is 5'4.

Liked: Great atmosphere! The bar and happy hour specials are great. It's a great place to meet fellow travelers. The free breakfast is good as well. It included bread, fruit, cereal, nutella, jam, hard boiled eggs, coffee, tea, and orange juice. Good location right by Vondelpark and Museumplatz. It's on a quiet street by the park so you are able to get some sleep.

Disliked: Being on the 4th floor with no elevator was a bit rough! Especially when there is no air conditioning or fans in the room.

Liked: wasn't my thing but probably because I was travelling alone, not saying it's bad I can see why some people might like it, I think it's best if you're travelling in a group not solo.

Liked: Such an amazing hostel - really nice location, next to the park and near lots of shops and restaurants, can walk into the centre in about 20 minutes. Cheap bar, crazy cheap, and the staff are lovely. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. Showers are good. Overall great value for money, and don't be put off by people saying its a party hostel, the rooms are far from the bar so you won't hear anything when you want to go to bed. Had an amazing time here, wish I could stay longer!

Disliked: The toilets are a bit unsavoury, but they do try to keep them clean.
