Liked: Great atmosphere and location! Quick walks to lots of important and fun things to do.

Disliked: Construction was going on at the time, so it got a little loud, but it was otherwise alright. Considering the cost, I think breakfast should have been complimentary.

10 May 2011 NURIA would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is 10 min walking from station close to the red district. My room was a 12-bed dorm ensuite, it was big, matress and pillow clean, with a good perfume. There is one scket, bed light, locker (5€ deposit) and kind of betable for each bed. You get a fresh tower everday.The bathroom is inside the room with one space for the washbin and another two for toilet and showr.There were tissues and soap. Showers were clean and drained easily. That room was quiet calm. There is also a flat tv in each room. The staff were really kind and helpful

Disliked: i didnt like the fact of jumping over the toilet in order to get to th shower. That space is tiny and quite unconfortable to get chenged inside. I missed some hangers for towels or cloths in the washbasin space. It was impossible without a light to see inside the lockers. Currently there are some works being done in the basement of the building and the welcome impression to the hostel is not so good and there could be som noises in the day on weekdays because of works. Not breakfast included in price. Price quite expensive for a hostel but in the average in Amsterdam
