Liked: Great location, low fares (compared to Amsterdam).

Disliked: Too much noise, not very clean - you get what you paid for! Anyway, you're in Amsterdam, why would stay in the hotel?

Liked: It was the factory farm of hostels. Huge, sterile, and smells of bleach. I am sure there are much better hostels, but it when they are all booked up, this one did the trick. No serious complaints. And 2-1 drinks every happy hour, which was a bonus.

Disliked: The P.A system that was connected to every room

Liked: I think it is considerably cheap compared to other hostel. Its location is perfect, near city center, not far from tram station, just 5 mins walk without carrying any luggage

Disliked: It can be quite noisy at night and the breakfast is too simple although it's better than nothing. Room is too small.

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

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).
