Liked: The Heart of Amsterdam Hostel was absolutely great. It was in a perfect location to get anywhere, about a 10 minute walk from all touristy things and right on the red light district which meant it was near to loads of bars and coffee shops.The room was perfect, there were 4 single beds each with its own shelf as well as copious plug sockets and a very nice clean modern toilet, shower and sink. I stayed for four nights with my boyfriend and another couple and it was much better than we could expect. Would recommend it to everyone... Eat some shrooms and find out why the room themes are so fun!We didn't have any problems but if we needed help there was always a member of staff at the desk - very helpful during check in and check out. Perfect.

Liked: Good location for travellers wanting to explore Amsterdam quickly. Each bed had a secure locker. Bedding was clean and a towel was provided.

Disliked: Plugs did not work well with adapters. Only one toilet shower between 8 people so it was pretty difficult to get in in the morning (mixed dorm so girls also needed to go in to get changed) .Lobby often smelt of weed. Although this smell is to be expected in Amsterdam, maybe people could be encouraged to smoke it further away from the door.

Liked: Literally in the HEART of Amsterdam, in the Red Light District. You can see brothels from the window if you're on the street side. GREAT staff, better than I expected!

Disliked: It was noisy at night but what can you expect for being in the Red Light District. Didn't bother me much but if you don't like street noise it isn't for you
