Liked: The resident cat.

Disliked: Everything else. Dark, dingy, dirty showers, incredibly thin walls meant loud noises all the time. All of this I might have expected from a hostel of this name - except they were charging 33 euros per night for a top bunk in a 5 bed room. Extortionate for what you got, which was the worst hostel we stayed in during a eurotrip. The flying pig, half the price, was three times as good. Sadly it was full so we couldn't stay there beyond our first night and moved here. A rather depressing hostel all in all.

Liked: Great location just round the corner from Leidseplein (the main going out district) so lots of bars and clubs within walking distance. We also walked back from a night out in Rembrantplein. So hostel is close to all major attractions, red light district about a 25min walk away. Also close to a tram stop. Staff were friendly - marked places to go on a map for us. Rooms were clean and they had large lockers.

Disliked: Very basic, felt we paid a lot for not much. Wasn't a very social hostel when we were there, the common area was just a sofa, tv and a few tables.

Liked: It was close to any destination in the city. The staff was very friendly and uncomplicated.

Disliked: Cleaned rooms and bathrooms would have been great, but it was ok anyways.Some kind of curtain would help us to get some shadow at daytime. But we helped ourselves with a blanket.

Liked: The staff were really friendly and helpful and the cat that hangs out at the reception area is very cute! Fast wifi that worked in both the rooms and reception, large lockers in the rooms and the showers and bathrooms were generally kept very clean.

Disliked: The stairs leading up to reception and the rooms is very steep and difficult if you have big heavy bags!

Liked: It was in a great location where you could easily walk around day or night and get where you needed to go on foot or by tram (which was a 30 second walk). It was really safe in this location at night when outside which was really nice, and really quiet. Also, the beds were comfortable and the sheets were obviously cleaned before we came. The bathrooms, while shared were also cleaned every day which made it comfortable to shower. And they have a really cute cat in the common room, which is awesome!

Disliked: They charge for internet and when sleeping on the top bunk (near the door) you could clearly hear every person slamming the door on the floor above. It made it really hard to sleep because of how loud it was.

Liked: Helpful staff.A lovely cat.

Disliked: Bathroom: no where to hang our stuff. Weak water. A nightmare to bathe.Crowded room.No guest kitchen. Can only hand all the stuff to staff for cleaning/ cooking/ freezing.Very steep ladder, no lift. If you carry a check-in luggage, you will be in trouble.
