Liked: This hotel was very central and was very easy to find from the central station.

Disliked: Compared to other hostels I've stayed in, our sign-in process wasn't the best. We were given our room number and told to just find everything by ourselves. The hostel wasn't signposted either which made it more difficult.

Liked: It aqquired to our basic needs in our short stay in Amsterdam. We only really needed a two beds, heating and some where to shower and it was perfectly fine. Not to mention that there is pub downstairs that you can eat in when you do not want to travel far to dine.

Disliked: Bathrooms needed to be cleaned everyday, not every 2 days

Liked: What did I like about this hostel? Not many things, I'll tell you that. The hostel location is superb as it is situated in the middle of the oldest street in Amsterdam (and one of the busiest) The redlight district is directly behind the property, which has it's perks...

Disliked: There are many things I disliked about this property, to start with there is a horrible smell of chip-fat and cooking oil throughout the property, especially on the stairs and in the hallways. Another point is that if you're located on the top floor, there is no such thing as WiFi. During my stay, one of two bathrooms was being renovated; this meant that all three floors of the hostel would share 3 showers (there are 4 shower rooms but one of them has a broken lock) Whilst on the subject of showers, there is no ventilation at all in each shower room, therefore the room steams up and becomes a very hot sauna. The Irish bloke from the pub next door kept hurling insults at us and told us to "lighten up" endless amounts of times after a very long day travelling (although you do get 20% off if you're staying at the hostel)

Liked: The location was great but that's pretty much it.

Disliked: Though the location is good it is situated adjacent to a church so the bells ring every 15 minutes or so from like 7am to about midnight. The rooms are also cramped and the common area is very tiny and very smelly like there's no fresh air. Also there are only 3 showers/toilets for a really large group of people so you're always waiting, they also weren't the cleanest they could be.

Liked: nothing

Disliked: Where to start. Staff in this hostel are probably the worst we have met on our 12 month travels. They will move people from rooms without notice, offer 20% discounts and then charge you full price for food. The room was not cleaned for three days and people were checking in and the sheets hadn't even been changed yet. Room setup was dysfunctional. No common area, no kitchen, bathroom setup is ridiculous as you can't put your clothes anywhere without getting them wet as the shower floors flood. And no racks. When you have to pay high prices on the weekend you think this hostel would lift its game. I would defiantly choose any other place than this one

Liked: Great location in Amsterdam, it is in Red Light District. Nice rooms and great bar within the hostel. They provide good discounts for a breakfast place nearby and the bar.

Disliked: Very small bathrooms, and very steep stairs to get upstairs. Not much advertisements or information on what to do in the city.
