Uladzimir Khomich thinks…

"The hostel is big and bright. Blankets were soft like clouds, that's what you need after a great party in the morning!!! It's clean. Location is fine, it isn't hard to get there."

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.

Liked: This was really a wonderful hostel. Great and understanding staff, wonderful people in the hostel. The bathrooms are relatively spacious (I mean it's not the Ritz Carlton), and there are individual (albeit small) lockers in the room. Overall, a wonderful value.

Disliked: Not much. Depending on what room you were in, the street noise might be a little loud, but unless you sleep lighter than a feather, you should be fine.

Liked: rooms were really clean and cleaned every day. sheets were hotel standard and really comfortable. towels were provided and changed every day. each room had a television which was good for entertaining yourself. breakfast was pretty good, there were 3 diff kinds of ham, cheese and eggs on top of the usual bread and cereal.

Disliked: location - pretty far from the city centre - abt 20 mins by tram. but its a give and take since the rooms were uber clean and the sheets were hotel standard.
