Liked: Excelent location, nice staff and spacious room, clean overall

Disliked: Even if the staff is nice, they must be receive some concierge-training since all the people that uses their facilities are tourists and are clueless about what is going on in the area.

Liked: I liked the location it was very close to the central station and right in the middle of the right light district with plenty of coffe shops around.

Disliked: They had a lil bit of construction going on it was pretty loud. But other than that it was a very nice place.

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.

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!
