Liked: the free internet access was useful and being beside the Heineken brewery was helpful too :)

Disliked: The stairs are really dangerous, if someone comes in drunk from a night out it may end badly. The bathroom was also pretty dirty.

Liked: The facilities.

Disliked: Only one key card in a room of 8 which makes it very uncomfortable when one is the only person in the room sleeping because there is the obligation of opening the door to other roommates.

Liked: There were lockers which were very safe. The staff is trustworthy and helpful. You get a decent Wi-Fi connectivity till the topmost floor. The sheets were fresh. The breakfast is simple (ham n cheese, tea/coffee/juice) but good. The vanGoff and Rjks museum are walking distance and even some of the good coffee shops with the GOOD stuff are nearby. I would recommend this place if you are traveling alone and want to meet new people. :)

Disliked: -The flush in my room was not working. A little attention to maintenance must be paid.-There should be dust bins in the room

Liked: Very good hostel. My only criticism would be that the bathrooms were not the cleanest but everything else was spectacular. Someone was always at the front desk and very willing to help. Location was good, a short tram ride from central station. Removed enough that the hustle and bustle of amsterdam won't ruin your sleep.

Disliked: Bathrooms.

Liked: You could use a computer for free to access the internet.

Disliked: The staff were incredibly rude to any possibility of losing a single penny worth of money, harassed customers and were generally unhelpful in anything that wasn't specifically a way of them making money from the client.
