08 August 2013 Stephanie would recommend this property

Liked: Nice location next to Vondelpark and museums areas. You can buy discounted tickets at the hostel for many attractions. Breakfast was really good - cold meats, cheese, toast, rolls, spreads, boiled eggs, fruit, juices, yogurt, cereals etc. Rooms pretty good and are accessed by keycard.

Disliked: Wifi only available downstairs. Windows can only be tilted so it was a bit stuffy in the room. Kids and school groups are allowed to stay so it can be pretty noisy and annoying when they are mucking around. No kitchen which wasn't great for our three night stay as so much of Amsterdam is touristy and therefore expensive.

Liked: Great location next to Vondelpark and very close to Van Gogh Museum and Rijksmuseum; lots of food choices nearby; large storage lockers in the rooms where you can lock up your stuff (if you have a padlock - or they can sell you one if you want); the lady at the desk gave me a discounted rate when I added a third night (normally would've been a more expensive 'weekend rate' because it was for a Friday night).

Disliked: Slightly disappointed that I was given top bunk and had to make the bed... Would've liked to be asked for bunk preference (top/bottom), because there was no one below me for two nights!

22 April 2013 Eric would recommend this property

Liked: Great facilities, nice location, very friendly and helpful staff, clean

Disliked: The hostel did feel a bit impersonal, being so large, and most of the people staying there seemed to be families and older groups -- more extreme budget travelers than backpackers. This gives the hostel a little bit of a bland, cheap hotel atmosphere, rather than the friendly, young and hip traveler atmosphere many backpackers seek. The hostel also charged for things that most places include in the price of the stay, such as towels (€4.50 to rent a towel!).
