Backpacking / gap year

30 April 2013

Liked: - Breakfast included with satisfactory quality - Friendly staff - Only budget traveller should choose

Disliked: - No wifi in room. We have to walk for almost three minutes from the room and take the escalator to the lobby. - The space of the six-bed dorm is very small - Shower is uncomfortable - When two friends and I arrive the room, someone occupy our bed! And they are smoking! The staff therefore helped us to change a room.

24 July 2012

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.
