Liked: Decent beds and bed clothing. Clean bathroom.

Disliked: The ATMOSPHERE was TERRIBLE. Our bedroom was between the reception and a little patio with some empty/open rooms "under construction" where guys go to use drugs, start allucinating, talking disrespectfully and making A LOT OF NOISE. I finally got to sleep around 6 am when noise stopped. Yes, it is in the red light area but I consider hotels should have certain rules or at least mention that this kind of behavior is acceptable. The combination of dark blue and black colors does not help in the bedroom for having decent rest.

Liked: I loved the theme! The place was based off of movies, so each room was named after a different film. The internet was good and so was the overall place.

Disliked: The water in the showers was too hot or too cold. The hostel is also right next to the Red Light District, so be aware of the girls in the windows!

Liked: I was actually really nervous to stay at this hostel after reading some of the reviews, but I thought it was great! Beds were comfy, I was upgraded from a 12-bed to an 8-bed for nothing, staff were friendly enough, shower was clean, new towels everyday... Really not bad at all. Also, the shelf and outlet right above the headboard of the bed were SUPER helpful.

Disliked: Staying RIGHT in the heart of the Red Light District is a bit of a shock, so prepare yourself for that. Also, no kitchen or real common room.
