Liked: The location was great

Disliked: The staff sucks. It's not for backpakers who like to meet people..no common place where stay to make new friends. It doesn't worth the money

Liked: It was only a few steps away from the Red Light District, so you could enjoy that area, stumble back to the hostel at night, and enjoy a safe and clean place to sleep.

Disliked: They had 4 couches and 2 big tables in the lobby to lounge, but no one really hung out there much to meet people. Even in a room of about 20 people I wasn't able to find anyone to tour the city with, but the location was so great I didn't mind.

Liked: Good location, easy o access from the train station and very close to everything

Disliked: Very dirty hostel, especially during the weekend. Stayed from Thu to Sun. Hostel stayers were mostly people interested to visit the Red light district, probably due to close location. Also the plates and cutlery were dirty at breakfast. Probably because the users have to place the dishes to the washing trays themselves and no one makes sure that they are clean after washing. Based on the cleanness it is not very good value for the money.

Liked: The property was basic but clean and it was in a good central location. The breakfast in the morning was very good although slightly earlier than I would have liked.

Disliked: Some of the staff were rude when we arrived and when explaining the prices of the rooms, but the other staff were friendly. I found it overpriced as we payed 30 euros a night for a room of 16. I wouldn't recommend a room of that many if you want a decent nights sleep but it was fine for us. There are no cooking facilities so we spent quite a lot of money on eating meals out.

Liked: location was great and there was no curfew.

Disliked: it wasnt a hostel but more like a hotel. it was really unfriendly and there were mostly couples and big groups making it hard for lone travelllers. the staff were not knowledgeable as in other hostel. its fair to say that they are somewhat unapproachable. breakfast was finnished by 9.30 which was really early if you had a late night. the beds were hard to climb up. and there was only 2 plugs in a room with 20 people. wifi could only be used downstairs.

Liked: Breakfast was good

Disliked: Don't stay here if you're looking for a social environment. Unlike most other hostels in Amsterdam, NO ALCOHOL OR SMOKING IS ALLOWED on premisis. Not a good destination if you want to meet new people. Common area is a table and seats in front of the reception desk and the TV room is virtually non-existent...not sure the tv even works actually. There's no heart in a Hostel like this. Seems like the owners are in it purely for the money. AVOID

Liked: The staff was fairly friendly and it was very central.

Disliked: Do not bring heavy bags as there are several stairs to climb and you're not getting any help with those. You also have to make your own bed. The toilets are always dirty, even though you see the cleaners on a regular basis you would rather want to go to a public toilet. The showers were really nasty and dirty, even though they were sanitised for fours hours during our stay, bring flip flops you can shower in!

Liked: This hostel was perfect to me and my friend. The location is amazing, in front of a one of the Amsterdam's channels and in the heart of the city. The good thing is this hostel is in a quiet part of the city! So, you can to go out, have fun and have a good night's rest! The breakfast is WONDERFUL! Better than a most of 3 stars hotel that I went. And you can eat looking the channel... It's the best vibe that I had... I totally recommend this place.

Disliked: it doesn't have lift, and up stairs until the last floor with my luggage was... a little bad

Liked: Breakfast is great.

Disliked: We stay in a 20 bed room. They don't have plugs for batteries or celular inside the rooms. If you arrive earlier you need to pay a locker to leave your luggage. They don't have limitation on age: the dorm contiguous to ours have 10 indian persons above 50's and the costumes are in opposite to occidental rules and if we stay at that dorm would be unsoportable (smells, and costumes from them)
