Liked: If you are looking for a convenient hostel to the red light district, coffee shops, etc. this is the place to stay. If you are in town for more site seeing and less partying then you might not want to go here. Great happy hour specials in the bar on the first floor and really cool bartenders. Also, great breakfast.

Disliked: Staff could have been nicer, but overall a really good experience.

Liked: Constantly bustling and busy, ideal if you want to meet people. Brilliant area in the heart of the busy red light district.

Disliked: Only go if you want to party. The staff are arrogant and sometimes downright rude and judgemental considering they must have seen it all before.

Liked: The location was amazing - close to centraal station and right in the red liught district. tons of great places to eat and drink and walkable to many sights. great breakfast.

Disliked: I don't think the staff really cleaned at all my first day, the halls smelled odd and the shower in my ensuite dorm bathroom would floor, and you'd have to wait for it to drain and squeegee the floors. also only 1 accessible outlet in a room with 12 people.

Liked: The staff was helpful and gave me a lovely map of amsterdam. There is a shared toilet and bathroom inside the dorm, which is quite convenient. The location is good as it is close to the damsquare.

Disliked: The security is juz ok since when i walked into the hostel at night, no one checks my identity and i juz headed straight upstairs to my room. The smell of cannabis made me feel sick.
