Liked: Perfect location. I stayed in the 6 woman dorm and it was a very large room with lots of natural light, good view, ensuite well layed out with toilet in separate room from shower. Room was quiet - very good sound insulation between rooms. Good breakfast. Consistently cheerful & helpful staff at reception.

Disliked: Wifi was slow.

Liked: I have no idea why The Bulldog doesn't have 90%+ ratings on this site. The staff and security guards are super friendly and helpful. The rooms are slightly small, but clean and secure. The bar is absolutely awesome...great vibes and a great place to meet interesting people. Charlie Sheen was there during my stay! Location is perfect.

Disliked: Pricey, but so is every other hostel in Amsterdam.

Liked: Excellent environment, all the trappings of a full-fledged hotel but with hostel prices. Great bar/lounge on the ground floor that is open late. Great place to come back to at the end of a night out.

Disliked: Somewhat expensive relative to other hostels in the area - but also much nicer.

Liked: Very convient location, don't have to go far for a good bar and cafe. Wifi throughout the whole building is nice. Standard free breakfast, nothing special but still enjoyed it.

Disliked: If you don't like smoke I'd avoid the bar at night, it gets pretty hazy in there.

Liked: Location was both good (easy to reach, in city centre) and bad (noise from the street. Free breakfast was ok, nothing fancy, but the the cutlery were a bit dirty. Bed was comfy and made no noise. Big lockers to keef stuff, but padlocks cost 5 €. Non-staying people are not let in

Disliked: Due to smoking in lounge, also the room and linen smelled lightly of smoke. Overall appearance of the dorm, shover and toilet was shabby. My experience was mostly bad because someone snored so loudly that even earplugs did not help, and I could not sleep.

Liked: All of the staff are really helpful and funny! I don't smoke and the place is centered around that but the actual atmosphere is good for anyone. All of the staff are very helpful and accommodating and really awesome. The rules they have make for a safe stay for everyone! Would definitely stay here again!

Disliked: Only thing was they gave a key to someone random that just came in and showered while we were all sleeping. I am a light sleeper and was wondering who this person was. The bathroom is a private one for those in the room so wasn't sure why they did that. We paid to have our own bathroom. It made me feel a bit concerned as to who has access to the room when we aren't here

Liked: Fantastic location, close to all the main sites.

Disliked: Room had not been cleaned on the day off arrival. I stayed in a 12 bed dorm so one shower and toilet is definitely not enough for 12 people. There is a bar downstairs but no common room so its extremely difficult to meet other people. No kitchen also. More of a hotel rather than hostel. Most people staying there are there for a crazy weekend of cannabis and drinking. You won't really met any fellow 'travellers'.

Liked: I liked where it was located (heart of the red light district), and relatively easy to find. However, a little too loud and partyish for me. Even early morning breakfast was a big party fest with loud music going on. I mean I know it´s Amsterdam, but everyone needs a wind down sometimes. Most of the staff was relatively nice and helpful, but some were a bit rude and whispered and snickered a lot.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: owners of the original coffee shop! This was more like a hotel than a hostel, great, comfortable atmosphere down in the lounge where you can smoke freely unlike most hotels in this area - it's right in the middle of everything - no worries about making your way home after a night out! Comfortable and quiet nights sleep and a good shower :)

Liked: This place is inside the red light district and also near to many coffee shops.

Disliked: The room was dirty and there is only one shower for ten people. The breakfast was poor too, without fruits.
