Liked: Everything, especially the bar in which you can meet a whole bunch of people!

Disliked: The only thing I didn't like much has been that they kept the music in the bar until 3 or 4 a.m., but it wasn't such a big problem.

Liked: Atmosphere was fantastic. Great people, great staff, good free breakfast every morning, separate smoking room and lounge/bar area, clean rooms, comfortable beds.

Disliked: Quite dirty; dishes in kitchen weren't cleaned properly, bathrooms were a tad dirtier than what would be considered "clean," and kitchen was quite small.

Liked: It's placed on a calm part of the city, and the rooms, showers and bathrooms are very clean and tidy. There's also a smoking room, very nice idea, not present in al of the hostels in Amsterdam.

Disliked: There's some sort of security deposit they charge you BEFORE you check-in, and you only get repaid for that after 5 days... as I booked hostel for all of my friends who went with me there, I had a problem, because for each one of them 22 EURO were discounted on my card. Also the kitchen is not that good,.

Disliked: If I have to be really picky I'll say it wasn't exactly near the centre of town, but still not bad location. Near enough any way

Liked: The environment.

Disliked: They use the pre authorization in your credit card one day in advance(before the arrival). It can cause problems for travelers who use pre paid credit card like me. Usually backpackers are counting with this money, and it return to your account 5 days later(when you don't need anymore).

Liked: I loved the smoking room, and all the murals were awesome. Most of the staff were quite nice and helpful, and having a bar right there was great since the hostel is a little out of the party area of the city, though I managed to find my way without too much trouble when I wanted to which was also nice. I could just follow signs to the Museum area or ask how to get to Van Gogh or the I AMsterdam sign and then easily find the place from there!

Disliked: One girl at the counter wasn't remotely friendly, and stared at me with rude eyes before answering any question. I did not like her. Also, the beds I got didn't have an electrical plug anywhere near them which made it difficult to charge anything.

Liked: Good beds, location & staff. Quiet surroundings.

Disliked: Im sure it was clean but the feeling of the toilets was that they were dirty. Being unlucky with matching other peoples sleeping time can be.. unlucky at times. You can get waken up if you get the "wrong" room. Not really the best breakfast for "healthy" people. Very good for every one else!
