Liked: Good distance to Van Gogh, Rijks Museum and Heineken brewery. The happy hour at the bar was good/cheap.

Disliked: Noise. We stayed on the bottom floor so not too far from the bar and it was extremely loud. The doors don't block much noise so you can hear everyone walk past to their rooms all night. Wifi only works in bar. Breakfast was terrible. Made you pay for cereal or fruit. Provided bread but no toaster? so jam sandwiches for breakfast. The dorms stunk like weed. Not the worst hostel in the world, but there is definitely better in Amsterdam.

Disliked: Everything is dirty. The windows in the rooms cannot be open completely, it is impossible to freshen the air in the rooms; therefore it was also extremely hot and damp. Breakfast was of very low quality.

Liked: Their honesty, actually. If you're an alone traveller and you just need a nest to rest and a shower to get the dirt off of you, this is the ideal value for money. No full optional, just the minimum that is exactly what we needed.

Disliked: The girl at the restaurant, a little bit too much noisy for my tastes.

Liked: the marketing strategy ;) they promote themselves as the worst hostel in the world, so when you arrive and expect the worst you are positively surprised that it's nice, clean and has a friendly staff. lockers were ok, bathroom not the best but i experienced much much worse at places that said they were the best... location: everything in walking distance - effing good value (25 euros! ... e.g i stayed at heart of amsterdam a few years ago which was 42 euros, and that was a real shit hole!!!!) , breakfast was ok too, free bread butter jam cheece and sliced sausage - you gotta pay for scrambled eggs etc

Disliked: a bit noisy (bring earplugs)

Liked: Close to clubs, shops and such. Okey rooms if you know what to expect from hostels in this price class.

Disliked: Told me the amount i payed before arrival, the ten percent, hade norhing to do with them and i still hade to pay the whole amount. The shower ran out of water after five minutes. The staffs attitude... well, lets say it could have been better.
