Erik Thordarson thinks…

"Good location, short walk to dam square and only 15 min walk from the train station. Clean rooms and the beds are good."

Liked: The location of this hostel is really great. I never had to take the metro or tram to anywhere j wanted to go because it was easy to walk to everything. Free breakfast was also really delicious. definitely check out the free tour advertised at the hostel. It was the best decision we made with a limited time and small budget.

Disliked: The staff at the desk were really unhelpful and far from friendly. Anytime i asked them anything I felt as if my question was a burden and in many cases they didn't even know anything about the tours being advertised. Since our stay the floors remained dirty and the bathrooms were not cleaned. There was only 1 outlet in the room for 16 beds. Not to mrntion that it's the only stayokay Amsterdam that doesn't have a bar or place to eat, which really kills the atmosphere.

Liked: Extremely friendly staff. Perfect location. This time the bathroom and showers were very clean too like the rest of the hostel. Male and female dorms separated which is always a plus. Free wifi and NO bedbugs. This place is cheap and very recommended!

Disliked: Why do you make me write dislikes when I do not have them? This is a silly option.

Liked: Breakfast was great, lots on offer. Staff were friendly and helpful. Located in a beautiful part of town, close to everything and easy to find. For a 16 bed dorm, there is plenty of space, very airy, not smelly or cramped!! Also, very quiet, considering its Amsterdam!

Disliked: Not the most character-ful place I've been, but am willing to give up on that for all the other excellent things!

Liked: Very close to the Centraal station, so getting to it after a flight+train journey was easy and fast... Breakfast, though not massive, was quite good. And free Wi-Fi!

Disliked: One of my friends thought that the toilets were catering to too many people, and wished to have a bit more cleanliness. My personal issue with the rooms was not enough plug points for my phone and camera chargers.

Liked: Location is very good and in strict city centre, 15min walk from Van Gogh's/Reijksmuseum, 5min walk to Red Light and Dam. Best of Amsterdam's coffeeshops are near. Also the neighbourhood is nice. Included breakfast was good, got enough food choices to satisfy everyone, tho it wouldnt be wrong to have a toaster or two there. Lockers were rly big, could have a whole backpack/briefcase stored there. Free-wifi is ok, beds are clean and comfty,..

Disliked: No kitchen, rooms with 20 beds are not the most comfortable, especially at night when everyone arrives at different hours, some strange folks also staying there, but its not rly hostels fault. Some of the showers didnt have the capability to change the temp of the water and the water itself was kind of pouring badly and not enough. Bathrooms were clean and big enough tho.

Liked: Very central and easy to walk everywhere! Only paid for tram to and from Central Station with luggage. Rooms are very big with 20 beds, but laid on in sich a way that 4 beds form a cubicle...very convenient and not disturbed by other travellers at all. Lockers are in a private corridor outside the room, so late comers and early risers don't hassle you with their luggage. Would reccommend this to any trabeller on a budget. Big super market just up the road for all necessary things. Breakfast was basic but had good coffee and fresh fruit. Good way to start the day. Staff is exceptionally friendly and helpfull. Linen provided is VERY clean and comfortable...nice duvets too!

Disliked: No kitchen or common area to have a snack or make a sandwhich inbetween excursions and meals. No coffee\tea facilities...even just boiling water and complimentary sugar and milk will be cool!

Liked: the location is really good... it's only a walking distance to lots of nice places, like the flower market, and if you go straight to the street at the side of hotel del europe, you'll reach the red light district in no time... lots of bars and restaurants nearby...

Disliked: the room and the toilet/shower room is not that clean, but is manageable if you're just going to use it because you need to have a place to sleep at night and because you need to take a shower and use the toilet...

Liked: Location, magnetic keys for the rooms, breakfast, clean and efficient showers/bathrooms. Also (my dorm at least) had a nice view on the canal.

Disliked: Hostel doesn't provide locks for the lockers (the ones they sell are 5e), hostel also deactivates the magnetic keys at precisely checkout time (around 10) so you better get your bags out on time.
