Liked: Very easy to get to from the station, extremely central, good sized rooms. Slightly flexible check out times but due to lack of organisation.

Disliked: Showers very poor, unclean communal areas at times, toilets not cleaned frequently enough, rooms smelt very stale, was in room for two days where people arrived and beds not ready for them. Very noisy for light sleepers thought this is to be expected for location! No cooking facilities.

Liked: Really great location, walking distance from pretty much everything. They renovated the bathrooms so they were new, big showers and it was clean (guys and girls share the same bathroom though). You get a discount at the pub downstairs which was a fun chill spot. Over all it was good.

Disliked: There's a church directly beside the hostel which rings the bell every hour. It was the most annoying thing of all time. Starting at 9 in the morning going all the way to like midnight. Although it only affects you while your in the hostel and I think the location makes up for that. Also there was no common room.

Liked: Good location, right at the heart of the red light district. Lots of bars and places to eat near by. Close to train station. Basic accommodation and shower facilities need refurbished but definitely not as bad as I had expected.

Disliked: Noisy in the morning as the church beside the hostel rings it's bells. Shower facilities need to be refurbished.

Liked: Electrical plug next to every bed, key-card entry to rooms so only guests can enter, less than a 1/2-mile walk from everything in the red light, and 20% off all drinks at the Irish pub connected to the hostel for guests!

Disliked: It was extremely hot (80-90F) and humid during our stay (6-9 June) and the hostel has no fans or A/C, so I woke up each morning sweating my butt off. Opening the window was of little relief. A fan or small air conditioning unit would have done wonders

Liked: Excellent location near the center of the city, within walking distance of the Central Station, the canals and the Red Light District. The rooms are spacious and it's a very safe place.

Disliked: For the price you pay, I would definitely recommend staying here. Anyway, some things have to be mentioned. The showers are tiny, there's no place to keep your clothes or towel inside. You can hang them on the outside of the door, but it can't be fun opening the door naked just to get them if there's people waiting outside. Also, the Old Church of Amsterdam if very close, and in the morning they ring their bells quite a few times. It's great if you have trouble waking up, but a pain otherwise.

Liked: Close walk from the train station and right near the Red Light district.

Disliked: It was NOT clean. My sheets had holes and the room felt dirty. Being in the Red Light district, it was understandably loud, but the window did not latch properly and made it louder than it could have been. When we checked in the staff was not particularly helpful. The price was low, which is why we booked it, but I would not recommend staying here due to the cleanliness issues. I did NOT want to shower here.

Liked: The hostel has an excellent location so you are within walking distance of most attractions and it is right above an irish pub in which you receive 20% and the food is excellent. For us this was dangerous as we spent most of our time in the pub.

Disliked: Woke up covered in bites after the first night not sure if from the linen or somewhere else but it is worth warning people that it might not be as clean as it looks. Also the exchange rate is wildly steep. £500=€700. So thought we'd be fleeced when paying for the hostal on arrival. If you can pay in advance much cheaper.

Liked: The White Tulip hostel is in an absolutely AMAZING location right in the red light district. I found that it was very safe. Upon arrival, we were given a wristband indicating the hostel's name, phone number and address, as well as my room and bed number. To access the hostel after 1:00 AM, I was required to show either my key card or wristband to the staff at reception. The staff was helpful in showing my friends and I where to go on a map. The hostel has an agreement with the bar next door (20% discount) and a café (10% discount) to offer discounts. Although they were a bit noisy, the vending machines were great to ease late night hunger pangs when all other restaurants are closed. The hostel had a common area to meet other travellers.

Disliked: I was disappointed with the bathroom facilities. There were only three showers, three bathroom stalls and three sinks (one was out of order) for my whole floor. I also came across a mouse in one of the showers late at night. As mentioned before, the vending machines were noisy. Although I wasn't bothered, the location is very noisy as well - keep in mind that you're right in the busy red light district and there's a bell tower outside that rings loudly often. I would have liked each individual bed to have it's own little light, as opposed to the one communal light in the room... coming home late and waking up early while everyone was sleeping was difficult.
