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.

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.
