Liked: This hostel is great, it has an ideal location (I walked everywhere, even in winter) and you can walk from the train station since the area is totally safe and easy to get to. The facilities are great and it's more like a hotel, it has an elevator too. The common area is the bar in the ground floor that was great but maybe it doen't create that hostel vibe, but you still meet people staying on the dorms so I had a great time. And the breakfast is amazing!

Disliked: The only thing lacking would be a kitchen. A tip: don't go to have the (incredible) breakfast in the last minute because after 10 the bar opens and people start smoking.

Liked: There was a great atmosphere about the place, it was full of vibrant people, all looking for a good time. The location was absolutely spot on. The Bulldog is at the centre of everything going on in the city and every attraction is just a stones throw away.

Disliked: The dim lighting in the rooms made it a little hard to see around the room when there was not much natural light coming in through the window.

Liked: Very friendly and helpful staff, very central location

Disliked: A little over-priced and not the best place for a solo traveler. Other guests seemed to be in groups and not particularly open or friendly.

Liked: The location of the hostel was great! Centrally located and near by all of Amsterdam attractions. The staff was great and helped with any need that I had. Would definitely stay there again.

Disliked: If I had to pick one thing the lockers inside the room are noisy when opening and closing them and this is me just being picky. But other than that no complaints.
