Liked: The low price.

Disliked: It's a Contiki hostel, full of busloads of 18 (or going on 18) year olds, in a location that's good for buses but not anywhere near anything for anyone else.

Liked: From the outside, it didn't look like much. But as soon as we got into the building we were pleasantly surprise. Our room was spotless and had 4 safes, we also had a balcony and a bathroom which was also spotless. No complaints!

Disliked: The only thing I can complain about, is the cleanliness of the communal toilets on the first floor. However, they were no where near as bad as some public toilets.

Liked: It was the cheapest hostel I could find in the area.

Disliked: The "dorm room" is actually a hotel room that has been stripped of all major furnishings and has had four bunk beds crammed in. There is barely room to walk between the beds, let alone enough space to keep the luggage of EIGHT people!! The beds are "made up" in a way that it was almost impossible to distinguish a used bed from a free bed - the blanket/towel/pillow are just tossed onto the bed haphazardly. The room smelled like it had not been properly cleaned in some time, and the shower drain was clogged to the point that a five minute shower meant wading in ankle-deep water.

Liked: The rooms were quite clean and every one had their own bathroom.The bar in the hostel is very nice and the Staff there is good and helps you out with any questions.

Disliked: The location is not very good. It is about 20 min by bus to the centraal station and an hour footwalk to the city centre. The staff at the front desk is not very helpful and they seem very tired.

Liked: Altough it is a hostel, and its quite cheap, there were TV and hair dryer in the room which I really appreciated.

Disliked: The location is terrible if you like nightlife as you need to take night buses which goes every half an hour and the journey takes about 20 minutes from the city center. If you stay in the hostel for long, it can be a very long journey to do every single day, and its not cheap either.

Liked: It was inexpensive, well maintained, close to trams that could take you to the major places in the city, had a bar, was full of interesting people, had free WiFi, and free towels.

Disliked: The staff were always curt. However, I noticed that almost everyone in the service industry in Amsterdam was like that; perhaps that's a cultural thing.

Liked: It was good value for money, our budget was tight so were weren't expecting the Ritz. The room was tidy and the hotel staff were really friendly and helpful. Overall we really enjoyed our stay and would look to come back on a trip to Amsterdam again.

Disliked: There were some down points, but again you need to factor in the cost of the room. There was a smell in the hallway and our room of toilet waste - easily solved with a spritz or two of perfume. The toilet system on the whole was fairly fragile as our toilet in the room blokced up by our second day. It was quite a way from Amerstam central square (we walked it in around an hour and a half) but on the tram it only take 20mins if that - depending on where you want to go. Travel cards are easy and cheap, which you can get nat a shope just outside central station. As you can see there were things that could be improved by arguably it would have increased the cost of our stay.

Liked: This hostel is run like a hotel with extra beds in each room. So on the plus side, you get your sheets changed everyday and the cleaning is fairly vigorous. This room might suit couples or families on a tight budget who want to stay out of the city a bit in a fairly quiet neighbourhood. Nice showers.

Disliked: I booked because of the price, but found myself paying the excess on trams anyway. Terribly located for seeing the city (though in fairness, it does warn that). Staff answered questions when asked, but curtly and without smiles. No real common room. No kitchen. Not conducive to meeting people. Average breakfast and tiny lockers. Depends what experience you're after, but for meeting people or partying, definitely look elsewhere.
