Liked: The staff were very friendly and its location is very central to the main tourist area

Disliked: The location for me was a downside as its a very seedy touristy area but that's a personal preference. The room was dark and a bit dingy and the hostel had no atmosphere, its not a good place to meet other people as a solo traverler

Liked: The bulldog was nice and central, walking distance to central station, dam square and red light district. The atmosphere is good if you're into smoking weed

Disliked: Very dirty, smelly and hot rooms. There was puke on the bathroom floor when I arrived and my "clean" bed was dirty. Showers are either scorching hot or freezing cold.

Liked: The bar and smoking area downstairs was convenient, fun and well attended. The location was really good. Rooms of good hostel quality, with a private shower and separate private toilet, both with sinks. Value for money pretty good - Central Amsterdam is always going to be a little more expensive.

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: It is one of the most traditional of Amsterdam and is very well located near the best attractions of the city, the breakfast is very complete , very good.

Disliked: The rooms are cramped , the bathroom has no partition between the box and the health leaving everything always wet , the closets are small and many do not lock right . Not to mention it was the STAFF HORRIBLE by day until it was bearable , but in the evening , the team was bad , bad educated and rude.

Liked: the bar on the ground floor was very atmospheric and was a good place to hang out. Great location - right in the centre of the red light district near all the action and the Main Street, train station and other parts of Amsterdam all very close. Hotel had lots of character decor was great

Disliked: The toilet smelt a bit - I don't know if that was because we had particularly smelly people in our room though
