Liked: The bar and smoking area downstairs was convenient, fun and well attended. The location was really good. Rooms of good hostel quality, with a private shower and separate private toilet, both with sinks. Value for money pretty good - Central Amsterdam is always going to be a little more expensive.

Liked: It is one of the most traditional of Amsterdam and is very well located near the best attractions of the city, the breakfast is very complete , very good.

Disliked: The rooms are cramped , the bathroom has no partition between the box and the health leaving everything always wet , the closets are small and many do not lock right . Not to mention it was the STAFF HORRIBLE by day until it was bearable , but in the evening , the team was bad , bad educated and rude.

Liked: The bulldog was nice and central, walking distance to central station, dam square and red light district. The atmosphere is good if you're into smoking weed

Disliked: Very dirty, smelly and hot rooms. There was puke on the bathroom floor when I arrived and my "clean" bed was dirty. Showers are either scorching hot or freezing cold.

Liked: the bar on the ground floor was very atmospheric and was a good place to hang out. Great location - right in the centre of the red light district near all the action and the Main Street, train station and other parts of Amsterdam all very close. Hotel had lots of character decor was great

Disliked: The toilet smelt a bit - I don't know if that was because we had particularly smelly people in our room though

Liked: Great location right in the city center. the hotel's first floor is coffee shop (not a regular coffee shop, but a marijuana smoking shop). If your hotel room is on the first floor, expect to smell the marijuana from your hotel room. The room is fairly clean and pretty safe (I think it is safe anywhere in Amsterdam).

Disliked: I think I stayed in room #312. The toilet's light uses motion to turn it on. It would go off after a minute. So, just wave your hand in front of the light to turn it back on (obviously you only could do it only when you stood up). if you sit on the toilet more than a minute, beware to do your business there in the dark. So, after the first experience doing it in the dark, I was prepared the second time. I brought my cellphone with me and used it as a flash light. I hope they would change the toilet light with the traditional on and of switch.

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.
