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

Liked: Great location, great atmosphere. Lockers were safe and secure as was the room. Showers worked fine and for a first hostel experience it was all I could have asked for.

Disliked: Bigger smoking area would have been nice, apart from that everything was great.

Liked: the only thing i feel positive abt this hostel is that they change the bed daily.

Disliked: 1. everywhere is too dark, the wall, the toliet, ceiling are black. the whole hostel is dark even in daytime and even turn on the light aldy. the reason why they use black is to hide the dirty.2. totally cant understand why many ppl said the satff are friendly. its not ture. 3. no fan and no air con in room.4.people smoke on ground, rooms at first floor affected so much and you can't close the window due no air condition5.toilet is tooo small OMG6.water (i am not sure its water or any other fluid ) drop from ceiling, not a water drop but water fall~!!! OMG~!! then i used the rabbish bin to catch the water fall immediately~!!7.no lift8.the beds are not stable and firm, when people climb up to the upper bed, it creates a super loud noise!!! super loud noise also come from the toilet door, room door when you open and close them.9.one tissue box a day in a 12 ppl room. =..=10. the room card or the room lock lose function easily. at the begining, i thought only my room card doesnt work, but others do not work as well.11. wifi doesnt work temporily.


The property's response is

We appricate all reviews to help us improving.For unexpected temporary problems,we apologized &fixed immediately.However,it's better to read hotel info where NO lift/NO aircon is mentioned ALREADY(local 14-20degrees June). For SUPER sensitive person, please do NOT book shared dorm, if you cannot stand the possible inconvenience caused by others in normal way. We refill room supplyment anytime when needed instead of putting dozen of tissue boxes in the room. ................(500 letters limit)
