Rachel Wasser

02 November 2009

Liked: This was one of the worst hostels we've stayed at...the staff so was so not helpful they actually made my life more difficult..the wifi didn't work, the bathrooms/showes were unusable and they actually charge 5 euros for use of lockers. there's one key per room and people coming in and out so lockers would really be helpful. beds seemed clean and were pretty comfortable, breakfast was pretty good but everything else was so miserable none of these seemed like a consolation. Definitely buy a map of amsterdam before you attempt to find the hostel and be prepared for a crowd of 19 yr old american backpackers with no hostel etiquette.

Liked: Its in the heart of the red light district and 10 mins away from train station. Unfortunately the bathroom/toilet had a very bad smell - it appears to be drainage smell from the building. They charge 5 euros for a locker which is ridiculous.I didn't stay the second night although I paid for it.

Liked: The location was perfect, walking distance from the train station and it is right on with its name, it IS in the Heart of Amsterdam. The only thing about it was that the bathroom was not as clean as we would want it, I guess they were trying on someone new on the clening staff but it was poor. The staff didn´t care about you staying there which we felt we weren´t being welcomed.Other than that, It was a good experience and good price for the nioght we stayed.

18 September 2009

Liked: clean bed, ok location, pretty good breakfast. expect the stink eye from rude, unhelpful staff. there is no kitchen and the only common area is the unwelcoming lobby. this was not a good hostel for meeting other travelers. beware the basement rooms; no number of sin city posters can make up for the claustrophobically low ceilings. no charm.
