Liked: The hostel is really about as central as it could possibly be.

Disliked: I was paying €44 a night for what I thought was really not a lot. I've seen that all the other hostels in Amsterdam are expensive too though so that's probably to be expected.My biggest complaint was the bathrooms. The first night I stayed in an 8 person dorm which only had one bathroom. The bath and the toilet weren't separated either so that increased waiting times. The bathroom itself was dirty. There were always puddles of water, I also feel there were some simple common sense things that were missing; things like hooks to hang your towel on, or a bath mat. This would only cost them a few euros but they're still not there. The second dorm I was in had 12 beds and 2 bathrooms which was a little better. The bathroom was still dirty though and incredibly small. It just seems like they've tried to cram in too much to try to get the maximum amount of beds they can.Also, there's some building work going on there over summer. They say the workers start at 9am, but don't be surprised to hear men smashing iron girders with sledge hammers as hard as they can at 8am in the morning.

Liked: The location of this property makes it really easy to get anywhere, and after a few drinks and trips to the coffeeshops, real easy to get back. Just ask the cute receptionist for a map and where things are when you arrive :)

Disliked: Not many bad things to say. If I "must" say something the bathrooms are kind of small, but the shower itself is large. Overall, not a bad place to crash and wake up the next day.

Liked: The location is good, literally a 5 minutes walk from the Dam Square. The themed rooms look interesting, although the theme expands only as far as a title for a room and a matching painting on the door. A nice touch - clean towels daily.

Disliked: The bathroom was pretty dirty all the time, because there was no mat, so the floor got anytime somebody used a shower; badly ventilated, with a constant stench inside; and poorly lit. Also there is something strange about the booking system, because we booked two beds, but they were in different corners of the room, not next to each other; I went to ask about it and met another girl with the same issue and the receptionist couldn't seem to care less.
