Liked: Very good location and the staff were very friendly helpful.

Disliked: The lounger bar is not very social, everyone is in there groups making use of the coffee shop products. For someone by them self this was not great. The lockers in the room are tall and thing so very hard to store a bag, or find stuff.

The property's response is

Thanks for the comment. We think its a good idea for everyone to travel with a lock, it can come in handy in a lot of situations. For the hostel, having your lock increases the safety of your belongings and you can be sure that no one but yourself has access to the locker.

Enjoy the rest of your travels!

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.
