Customer review

12 May 2010

Liked: The Bulldog was so far the worst hostel I've stayed in. The staff has no idea what "service" means as was the case for most of Amsterdam. You are made to feel like they are doing you a huge favor, then you are charged for it. The lockers were weak, seems someone could easily force it open and more often than not even though I left the lock clearly in a hanging position, when I returned it was often twisted to the side as if it was being tested. I trusted my fellow travelers in the room, the cleaning and "room inspection" staff got zero trust from me and I got dirty looks from them. Power outlets we sparse and locate high on the wall, I had to run my laptop power cord past my roomates top bunk and have it hang. The bathrooms are the type where the entire bathroom is the shower and you are required to squeegee the floor after showering. Don't even think of going to the restroom in socks unless you want wet socks.One woman at the front desk gave a fellow traveler a hard time about him trying to receive a phone call, when the call came, his calling party was then told even though he had made prior arrangements for the call, that he was not there. Don't even think about ordering food in their bar / restaurant, I was ripped off 14€ for two horribly dry cheese sandwiches (all they offer at lunch time) and 2 beers, and we had to get up to order and get up again to fetch out food... SERVICE IS NON EXISTENT! Free breakfast was poor quality and so promptly cleaned up at 10 that if you go down at 09:50 you better be ready to fight the staff for your food. Again rude staff, no service. They lock the roof terrace at odd times, so if you want to go up for some air, it's hit and miss. The location was about the only good thing. Rather than Bulldog, it should be called Bullsh*t!
