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.

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.
