Liked: It is hard to recall anything redeeming about this property, but they did provide clean sheets and a towel.

Disliked: In a recent trip abroad I stayed at over 11 hostels and this was by far the worst. The staff was not friendly. The bathrooms looked like they had not been cleaned more than once every few months and the rooms were so disgustingly hot it was impossible to sleep. The windows would not even open more than a few inches to let in fresh air. We took the 655 am train to our next destination just to get out of the room!

Liked: This place is et up for the traveller looking for a good time. In the middle of the RLD. There is going to be a bit of noise outside and other guests are going to be enjoying all that is on offer. The rooms are cleaned daily and each bed has a locker.

Disliked: No fan in room meant it got very hot inside

Liked: Good location, lots of fun, easy to meet other travellers (people hanging out in the back of the hostel smoking, or in front of the hostel... also smoking), relatively clean (the shower was a little clogged, but beds & bathroom clean), in the red light district, wouldn't recommend staying here for people who want quiet or peaceful

Disliked: No smoking inside, not many seats outside in the back (where everyone hangs out, had to sit on floor), construction outside woke us up at 8am on weekdays (very very loud)

Liked: Easy to meet people as a lone traveller. Clean fresh towels provided free daily. Clean, comfy (but hazardous to clamber into!) beds and clean bathrooms with hot strong showers. Stayed in an eight bed dorm, with a mix of other lone travellers, which was nice in order to meet people. Certainly a good place for a party in Amsterdam! Great location for taking a safe, late night stroll around the red lights, food, coffee shops and all. Really close walking distance from the central station (even though I arrived late at night it felt very safe, as long as being offered 'special services' does not bother you.)

Disliked: Not a place for a quiet night of sleep...certainly not for prudes, as it looks out onto the red light district in all it's seedy glory!

Liked: Las habitaciones eran muy limpias y los problemas que tuvimos (porque estábamos en una parte que estaban remodelado y se nos corto el agua y la electricidad unos minutos) fueron resueltos de manera muy expeditiva. El desayuno no estaba incluido pero era accesible y muy abundante.

Disliked: La habitación tenía poca luz. Puntualmente nuestra habitación era fría porque no le llegaba la calefacción.
