Liked: Location was pretty convenient around 15 minutes walk from the city centre. Included breakfast, private bathrooms. The room was quite clean.

Disliked: There is very basic lobby/eating room/bar. Also, it's hard to get any information from the receptionists about the interesting spots in Amsterdam not because they are not helpful or willing to advise you - they're simply very busy with the check-ins.

Liked: The location was good and it is very clean despite the advertising suggesting otherwise. The en-suite bathroom was a welcome addition

Disliked: The breakfast is very poor and staff at reception didn't seem particularly helpful and the hostel lacked any real character or atmosphere and offered little chance to meet anyone else in the hostel. Not particularly cheap or exciting.

Liked: central location, happy hour at the bar and long hours of the bar in the basement

Liked: The hostel had pretty much everything you needed. They check your keys at the entrance so noone can get into the hostel without a key which made you feel safe. Free breakfast was really good. Lockers in the room was good. The bar has really cheap drink specials.

Disliked: The rooms were extremely basic. Free WiFi was only downstairs in the breakfast area.

Liked: The hotel is in the city centre and includes breakfast, which at this cost is really great and nowhere else to find in Amsterdam.

Disliked: In the bathrooms could be hooks for towels. Since I traveled with my boyfriend I didn't like that we had separated beds and weren't able to push them together since the room was too small.
