Liked: Very good location. Rooms were comfitable and had plenty of space

Disliked: It was very noisey - this could be because of the location, it was central which was great, but that meant that there was alot of people walking outside and their noice just travelled into our room (we were on the top floor and it was still very very noisey).

Liked: Great location, reasonably priced, nice beds and linens.

Disliked: Stayed in the triple room... Wifi wouldn't reach it, and there was this stupid deodorizer machine in the bathroom that was as noisy as a gun going off. Not big deals though, hostel was nice.

Liked: So just be aware that this hostel is in the Red Light District. Being in Amsterdam, this actually puts it in the middle of tourist attraction, but just don't be surprised to find sex shops and dancing women (some of which are incredibly attractive!) all around you. It's in a good location in that it is in the heart of the city without being far from the train station.

Disliked: I've certainly stayed in worse, but it wasn't the nicest or cleanest hostel I've stayed in either. It has a slight seedy feel to it.

Liked: Wonderful staff. Very friendly and on top of everything. The outlet for my bed was broken so I couldn't charge my mobile and when I told the woman at the front desk the problem was immediately being taken care of. Literally minutes later there was a guy in the room fixing it. Amazed at how quickly they resolved any problems.

Disliked: Bit confusing to find my room as I was on the top floor, but I worked it out easy enough. Staff had no trouble explaining how to find it the first night anyway.

Liked: This hostel is themed by movies!! The reception area is called the Box Office and we stayed in a dorm themed with Clockwork Orange!The rooms were clean and tidy and the bathroom was awesome for a hostel , more like a hotel!The rooms were cleaned everyday and fresh towels provided. Each bunk has a built in bedside with power socket and light. Beds were actually comfy too.The location is a couple streets from Dam Square in the heart of the Red Light District - perfect!Would definitely stay there again

Disliked: There was not a power socket in the bathroom, little bit annoying.

Liked: The location, the staff, the cleanliness and the shower!

Disliked: Even though rooms are non smoking, some people were smoking in the room. Just wish they install smoke alarms or do some checking to ensure the non smoking rue is strictly followed.
