Liked: it has a great location. rooms are cleaned daily. staff should try to smile at least once a day. i recommend this hostel if you are not looking for attractions like bar or tours. 3 € for breakfast is bad but it worths.

Disliked: .

Liked: Heart of Amsterdam might be a bit pricey to the average backpacker but it is most def worth it. In the 8 bed mixed you get your own bathroom, lockers, and there is a lot of room in general. The windows open quite wide as well if you have laundry you need to hang on your roommates bunk. They even have a flat screen TV in the rooms, if you are into that sort of thing. All in all, its a pretty bad ass place to stay. We could see the red light girls from our window! yay!

Liked: The location is excellent, especially for the price! It's located just a few minutes walk away from Dam Square and close to pubs, shops and coffee shops. The rooms were nice and modern with comfy beds and each bunk had it's own locker, shelf, plug socket and light which was very handy. We were provided with fresh towels and the beds were changed each day so overall it was nice and clean.

Disliked: The rooms were quite dark. They were painted black and if you were on a bottom bunk especially there was very little light despite having a personal light next to your bed. Another downfall would be that there are no self-catering areas so we had to eat out everyday.

Liked: Very clean, nice chill-out area, and although I never partook of the breakfast it looked like good value for money if you're a carnivore.

Disliked: The door to our room didn't close properly and was left open a couple of times so the slamming wouldn't wake the whole building. Didn't appreciate the prostitute being brought into the room by the other bunkmates...but that's really not the fault of the stablishment...
