Liked: Lobby is like a hotel, the check in was fast and easy, keycards secure and rooms well laid out and easy to find. Breakfast was good and the bar room was well maintained and staffed in the evening.

Disliked: Staff were blunt and not particularly friendly, rooms and corridors away from the reception were badly maintained, not dirty, but not pleasant To the eye. Rooms were very stuffy as windows do not open but one you figure out the air conditioning it's ok.

Liked: Excellent value, great breakfast, helpful staff (we got upgraded so my friends and I had a private room). Very clean with nice bathrooms etc.

Disliked: There was no aircon in our room so it was very stuffy, especially in the morning. The location was quite a long tram ride from the centre.

Liked: My wife and I were here two nights and liked how large and clean the rooms were. Breakfast was also great. The other guests were qiute. All in all this was a great place to wind down at the end of the day.

Disliked: The one drawback was the distance from the city center. There is very little around the hotel and the tram ride into Dam Square is about 20 minutes. We usually left in the morning and stayed out for the whole day, so it wasn't much of an inconvienence. If you plan to stop back at your room alot, consider finding a hotel closer to downtown.

Liked: It's so clean.

Disliked: The room boy entered my room when I was having a breakfast at the restaurant. He thought maybe I already checked out. I realized this as soon as I came back from restaurant, when I found my water bottle was already in the trash bin. I remembered that I never put my water bottle in trash bin, even tough it's empty. That's really made me scared of the safe & secure in this hostel. Another thing, the place is too far from the center of Amsterdam. From center to hostel, it takes 30 minutes with bus and even with metro.

Liked: Great value for money. Super soft comfy beds, amazing en-suite with a great shower. Tram/bus stop directly outside.

Disliked: A little bit out of town but being so close to the main tram lines made up for it. Can't really complain at the price we paid.

Liked: It was cheap compared to the other options and this was why we picked it. There was a lift which is always a bonus with heavy luggage. The room itself was OK, although not a huge amount of space for bags in our particular room. Bathroom was new and clean.

Disliked: On arrival the man at reception was slightly rude, however this could just be a personality difference and the woman the next day was much better. The hallways smelt VERY BAD. The carpet was obviously very old and stunk of smoke and sweat. We did not want to breathe. This is a HOTEL not a hostel - important to note this. The shower leaked in the bathroom, but this was quickly sorted. The directions to city centre were weak - it is not the tram directly out the front of the hostel and this was not clear. It literally just states 'Tram 4' which is open to interpretation.
