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.

Liked: The location of the hostel was great! Centrally located and near by all of Amsterdam attractions. The staff was great and helped with any need that I had. Would definitely stay there again.

Disliked: If I had to pick one thing the lockers inside the room are noisy when opening and closing them and this is me just being picky. But other than that no complaints.

Liked: It was a really chilled out atmosphere in the lounge. The hostel itself looks like a hotel converted into a hostel. Its pretty decent and meets your basic backpacking needs. The reception was quite nice and helpful but didn't really have that many recommendations.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Close to Amsterdam Centraal railway station which is 15 mins way from the airport. Very nice staff. Clean rooms and bathrooms.

Disliked: If you get a room, facing a street, it will be noisy since bar is on the ground floor. But if your room is facing a yard, it will be quiet.

Liked: Great hostel to stay if you wanna party/ go to some event and you use it just for sleeping. There was relaxed atmosphere and you didn't need to take care how you look like on breakfast. And breakfast was included.

Disliked: The dorm wasn't the most clean one and people were so hangover or day-after to have any communication.

Liked: The employees; they were very nice. They noticed that I was having a few issues and not feeling well. They asked me what was wrong and took care of me.

Disliked: Lack of respect amongst the employees. Most people won't notice it. For example, some older gentlemen calling a guy by the name China, Even though he was Asian, he wasn't from China and it wasn't his name.

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.
