"The bed lines were already prepared, when we came. I appreciated a free (actually it is included in the price) towel. The bathroom was clean and well equipped. Each bed has an acces to a plug - very usefull for charging…"

Liked: Extremely accommodating staff. Regular service and cleaning in hostel rooms. Sumptuous breakfast! Although not situated right at the Centre, the amazing city transport of Amsterdam takes me to this place in max 20 minutes, even in rush hour traffic! The tram and bus stations right next to the hostel makes it a very good choice if I am not paranoid about City Centre. We are a couple, arrived at the hostel as early as 06.30 hrs, though the check in hour was 15.00, no extra charges were asked for but we received a welcome smile !

Disliked: A faster wireless internet connection expected.

Liked: Free breakfast

Disliked: BED BUGS, rude staff, television in room did not work, multiple hairs found on mattresses, no chair in room, rooms and hallways were dirty. When we found bed bugs and even took a picture to show the staff, they refused to believe us at first and told us we were the only ones to say they had bed bugs. When I showed them the picture, they told me "don't put that on the internet or anything." We finally got them to give us a new room, but we couldn't sleep the entire night because of our encounter with at least three bed bugs. The hostel staff told us they've "never had bed bugs," but another staff member said "Some hotels have bed bugs and some don't." The staff attitude toward the situation was unacceptable. If you don't want to wake up with bed bug bites, I suggest you stay at another hostel. My friend and I had to spend 30 euros at the laundromat to wash any eggs out of our belongings. We asked for a refund/discount, but were told we had to email the manager. No response at the time of this review.

Liked: It's still called s 'hotel' and it looks like a former posh place now made into a hostel. The corridors with the red carpets and the breakfast hall still look posh, a bit used of course though. Speaking of breakfast - it's amazing. Also the staff cleans the rooms really properly provided you remove all your stuff from the ground and place it in the wardrobe!

Disliked: The computers in the hall weren't working, when I complained they got one of them repaired. But you can't use your usb charger it's just for browsing the net and it's terribly slow so it's better not to count on it and bring your own laptop

Liked: It was very very safe, free safe's in each room. The bathroom was lovely, the shower amazing! The breakfast was a plus, the staff very very helpful.

Disliked: The corridor had a funny smell and the breakfast was a little plain. The room, although clean, could use re-decorating (the wallpaper was peeling off which made it look a bit unpleasant). THERE WAS NO KITCHEN!
