Liked: Location is great. Free (basic) breakfast!

Disliked: Cleanliness is yet to be translated into Dutch at this hostel... Toilets/showers/bedrooms were pretty rank. This is a real party hostel, we do partake and were ready for this, but you really can't escape it for even a night. Quite a boisterous atmosphere, quite a lot of heckling girls, etc.

Liked: There was a power outlet by each bed - no sharing with your roommates. They had a free breakfast every morning with toast, rolls, deli meats and cheese, fruit and juice. The location was great - right in the middle of everything and just a short walk from Central Station. The wi-fi worked well both in the lobby and rooms.

Disliked: A little more expensive than some.

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.

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.
