Liked: Good hostel! Not right in the centre, but the walk isn't bad or you could take a tram which is about a 5 minute walk away. Rooms were clean and staff were helpful!

Disliked: We were lucky and only had one flight of stairs, but if you are on one of the higher floors, the stairs looked intimidating.

Liked: Pretty good feel, nice breakfast, good vibe -this was my second visit in two months and I have to say It was a good choice for Amsterdam. Simple to get to, and in a nice area of town. They offer a good amount of information and can book tickets for attractions as well - saves time!

Disliked: Stairs, but I mean it's not really a huge deal - but when you have a heavy back you always remember it. Seriously guys its a good choice to book!

Liked: helpful staff, location great next to park, rooms clean, valuables kept safe at reception which is open 24 hours. 2nd floor toilet. I had a wonderful send off in the smoking room, playing guitar and singing a song just before leaving.

Disliked: the loud music until 3am, though earplugs helped. Toilet on 1st floor too small and often dirty. There should be male and female toilets, men can't aim straight, women can. A small bag of cheese, herb teas and an insulated cup went missing from my room, I left it on the floor, and it may have been thrown away by cleaners, staff checked in a log book but nothing written about it. Otherwise someone in my 6 bed dorm knicked it. They obviously need those herb teas and cheese!

Liked: It was right on this really nice park which made it easy to find on maps, and was just a nice place to go. The breakfast was good, the bar looked fun, the beds were clean, they let us put our stuff in lockers before check in time, and the smoking room was always interesting. It was close to the museums, and not too far from city center. I liked that it wasn't right in the middle of everything, but was close enough.

Disliked: Nothing really.

Liked: It's a nice place with a fun atmosphere in a great location. The staff was also very helpful. Not a bad place to meet people if you're traveling solo.

Disliked: Overall, it was nice and clean but my room smelled a bit funky (not pot, just funky) but it could have just been a fellow guest and not the hostel itself.
