Liked: The location was brilliant. The staff were lovely.

Disliked: It needed an upgrade; cleanliness was really good but decor in the public areas not. It needed painted in the public areas, the carpet in the downstairs lobby was filthy and created a poor first impression. The menu did not look value for money and no one was eating! The front sitting room was full of smoke and stoned tweny year olds. It needed a major overhaul. Why not ban the smoking; plenty of other places. The doors have terrible closers on them that slam shut; really bad when people are coming and going at all times. You can get closers that slow to the final shut so no horrible banging.

Liked: None.

Disliked: It is the worst hostel I have lived in. Very difficult to find the location with very small sign. And the night guider always looked serious. The window in the room even could not closed and the bed sheet was not clear enough.

Liked: Location is absolutely amazing, it is right of the grand place! The facilities were real clean and had a comfy common area.

Disliked: The check-in place is a bit of a walk from the hostel, but it understand why. The street the hostel is on is also alittle sketchy seeming if you are alone at night, but that is like any off street from the grand place.

Liked: The staff was really friendly and talkative. Rooms were clean and has a nice spot when you want to feel the canals atmosphere in Amsterdam.

Disliked: There was a strange smell in the Lounge room, like old cleaning sponges or something. I didn't like it and I didn't want to spend a second in Lounge.

Liked: Good location, room clean and shower gel provided in the bathroom that's about it.

Disliked: Staff friendliness was not great when I was there. There's no real atmosphere and nothing that makes you want to hang around the hostel either which is a shame because its a nice building. It could be a much nicer hostel if they put more effort in. You just get the feeling there's not that much care and attention being put into it, for as long as people want to keep getting stoned they'll be holed up in the smoking room,first joint to lips and then they'll blissfully forget how much this hostel is not value for money, especially on the expensive weekend rates. The owners are laughing! I guess you can't get away from a smoking room in Amsterdam , which is just guys sinking down the back of sofas and watching TV. So if you are a stoner and this is your thing you will probably enjoy but if not I do not recommend this hostel at all because there's not another common room, people are too stoned to strike up conversation and you have the background noise to a seriously bad US TV series. I'd try somewhere else.
