Liked: Great location, very safe with all the numerous key-swiping requirements, big lockers, clean and warm showers. Close to everything you may want to see or do in Amsterdam. Very helpful and well-informed staff. Very nice breakfast.

Disliked: People arriving at the counter looking for a bed to stay who didn't have previous reservations, were getting better prices then I did on HostelBookers. That really disappointed me. Toilets could be cleaned more often, bunk-beds and doors could be less noisy. And obviously: no wi-fi in the rooms. And wish it was more of a youth hostel. Very much like a hotel with dorms.

Liked: Loved the free breakfast!

Disliked: Internet is only accessible in public areas, leading to a lot of crowding in the lounge area. Furthermore, a rental service for larger towels would be appreciated. As it is, you can only buy a relatively small towel, which is rather inconvenient for travelers.

Liked: Frendly

Disliked: This is the only negative I can say about the hostel, I paid online via hostelbookers.com, the price advertised was £156.68 for 2 people for 2 nights. I paid a 12% deposit, so my total to pay should be £137.88.On arriving to the hostel the reception desk charged me £145.54, when i queried the price she said and i quote "its travelers fees". No one could give me any explanation as to what the additional charge was for.

Thank you for making the time to give us a review! Sometimes there's a difference with the price you saw online and the price you get at the desk because of the tourist tax which is not always named on the booking website. The tourist tax is €1,25.- per person per night. However, our receptionists are all aware of this. We're sorry you didn't get a better explanation and we'll check with the person who checked you in. We hope to see you back some day!
