Liked: It was a bed to sleep in but we HATED this hostel. It was dirty and the room smelled bad when we got in. The rooms have no character nor do they look clean at all. It was in an ok part of town and was nice to walk around however when storing our bag in a locked room all day that was "secure" we came back just to find the doors open and people walking in and out freely. Really disappointing. They say they also have a breakfast included, of two pieces of stale bread and a hard boiled egg. Not very satisfying in any way.

Disliked: location, cleanliness, atmosphere, horrible breakfast, unfriendly staff.

Liked: The atmosphere was incredible, and the place advertises as this real down and dirty party place, but it is actually very clean and decent. I also like that the room had it's own bathroom.

Disliked: I didn't really dislike anything. It was a good value for the money, but I wasn't expecting five stars or anything.

Liked: Great hostel near the main square of leidsplein. Clean rooms, cheap drinks, happy hour 5-6pm buy one get one free at 3.50 euros! Cant complain! Staff are cool and down to earth aswell, got talking to the manager and give us free shots of absinth and beers haha. Breakfast is ok (if your english) but im not into all the continental stuff, not realy good for curing hangovers. Good place to meet people and the underground clubis good aswell with top dance and european music its cheap too. Overall good i'd definatly stay there again!

Liked: Directions were very good, we got there in no time. Beds were good, you get your money back for sheet deposit. Helpful with maps, etc.

Disliked: Nothing really stood out to dislike, but checking in was a bother, because we were late and were in a panic to get there.

Liked: Nice and clean hostel with all needed facilities for this price.

Disliked: Very very noisy. Disco until 4.00 and people running around inside and outside won't let you have a good sleep. Only if you're very tired.

Liked: There was a nice cheap bar, that had a busy happy hour. Good location and easy to find. Breakfast, including tea and coffee was free everyday.

Disliked: Lockers in rooms were bent and difficult to close or lock, luggage didn't feel very secure. Rooms looked like prison cells.

Liked: Great location and friendly staff. Also, the hostel is very big so it's easier to meet people. Free wi-fi on the first floor. Free breakfast was also good.

Disliked: I stayed on the top bunk and there was no ladder, which made climbing up there very difficult. My locker was in pretty poor shape, and I didn't feel comfortable leaving my valuables in there. Shower was smelly, small, and there were absolutely no hooks to hang towels/clothes on (or even a toilet seat cover to put them on).

Liked: It was alright. I chose it because it was the only one which did not include rats. There was free wifi in the cafeteria. Power outlet right next to my bed for charging my phone. An ok breakfast included in the the room charge.

Disliked: For a Wednesday, it was a bit loud in the hallways. My gf did not like the place, but I was fine. I would come back.
