Alexandra Longhouse thinks…

"It's fairly quiet, I slept well. It was all very secure, you needed keys to get anywhere. It's right on a canal, which is nice. Free breakfast is quite good."

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: 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.
