Liked: Fantastically located in the heart of the city - only 5 minutes to most of the main attractions. Staff were fantastic and went above and beyond the call of duty to help us out.

Disliked: Bathrooms could get a little grotty at times...

Liked: The location is excellent, nice rooms, staff was ok, nice breakfast. Stayed for four nights, First and second day staff very friendly, helpful and nice. last day as well. They accept credit cards, but till the reception is on. During nightime, from midnight on, no credit card and just one person in a nightwatch.

Disliked: Showers and toilets were shared, and were cleaned I guess once a day, too little cleaning for too many guests. No free Wi-Fi, and the beds didnt have like individual lamps, and also the lights in the dorm I stayed in some were dead, just one worked fine. Locker system is good, but they could be more reasonable about the assignment of lockers and the policy of cutting lockers from those who pick the wrong one. They are just lockers, no need for such strictness about it. Some of the staff were like in a bad mood somedays. I stayed in for four nights.

Liked: The fact that the area with lockers was separate to the dorm area. This meant that you were able to come in later at night and disturb people less.

Disliked: There were few plugs in the actual dorm only in the locker area.

Liked: The most I'd liked the awesome location! It is like middle in the center but still quiet and relaxed. 5 to 10 min walk and you are everywhere you want to be.Aswell the 20 bed dorms are lovely to sleep in- nicely seperated!

Disliked: The bathrooms and especially the showers was pretty dirty. Kind of disgusting!

Liked: It is really nice, lots of showers and toilets, big rooms, big lounge. EXCELLENT!!!

Disliked: It could be a little cheaper... And not everbody in the staff was ready to help the travellers. Once I had to wait for one employee when there was someone else there. I think that at a hostel, all employees behind the desk should be able to help us or at leqst answer our questions. I understand hostels are informal, but even though. Anyway, this did not disturb me at all, it is just a suggestion for the hostel to improve.

Liked: Good location, not too far from Red Light District but not too close either! Breakfast included in the price was fine, regular hostel fare.

Disliked: Bathrooms were not cleaned regularly, there was a lot of hair about - could have definitely been worse but this is the main negative I remember.

Liked: The location was fantasic for all local attractions, the atmosphere was brillant and felt a safe enviroment.

Disliked: The breakfast was a little basic but we wasn't too bothered about that as that's what we thought we would get with it being a hostel.

Liked: Just in the centre, close to Red Light and just by a canal. Great place for a backpacker who just want a bed for the night, as it's simple but cheap. BIG lockers outside the room.

Disliked: Breakfast wasn't too impressive, but you can't expect much more when it's included in the price at a place like this.

Liked: the staff were very helpful and spoke good english. location was pretty good, in between dam square and lightsplein, right next to quite a main street with a good amount of shops on. within walking distance of everything, no need for public transport.

Disliked: it was not a good place to meet people to go out with. most people are in big groups that have come for stag parties and stuff like that so dont really wanna get other people involved. the beds were not great, wierd texture and quite hard to sleep on. the lockers were outside of the rooms so was annoying to have to go outside everytime you wanted to get something from there and have to use your key card to get back in.

Liked: Very clean. Excellent location. Safe.

Disliked: To many codes, tickets, deposits, tickets etc. You have to pay extra for everything, lockers, internet. There is no kitchen so you can not make dinner and no common area to socialise. Everything is very branded and not very fun unlike many other hostels.

Liked: Rooms and beds/linen clean. Staff generally friendly. Great location!

Disliked: Toilets and showers felt dirty. They got cleaned every morning, but are a bit old and I felt dirty coming out of the shower, which is not right....but maybe it was just the people staying while I was there...?

Liked: The hostel was clean, free breakfast is always a plus and the location was good (although amsterdam is tiny so...)

Disliked: no free WIFI. I find it unbelievable that a hostel doesn't have free WIFI. and the prices to use the internet were extortionate! 1,50euros for 15minutes? no thanks.

Liked: Great location and the staff was very nice to me! Breakfast was great too! Big lockers in dorms also helped a lot!

Disliked: Internet was too expensive in my opinion and the bathrooms smelled a little bit. No elevator can be a problem if you have big and heavy luggage and stay in the last floor. But it´s still a good hostel and i recommend it!

Liked: nice spacious bedrooms, although alot of beds, but ok if you dont mind sharing. nice breakfast, cereal, yoghurt, bred, jam, honey, ham, cheese, orange juic, hot chocolate, coffee and nice room to eat in.one member of staff was very pleasant and talkative where others where very rude.

Disliked: the bathrooms did not get cleaned for the entire 3 days that i was there. on my first night there were things in the sink, rings on the surfaces, and on my last morning the sinks were still dirty ( had big clumps of hair jell in one sink, old toothpaste from someones mouth in other etc ) and the work tops still had all the rings round, not good at all!!!! some of the staff were very rude and abrupt and not helpful at all, felt like you were pestering rather then feeling comfortable to ask them anything
