Alexandra Brodie thinks…

"We were moved to a four person room instead of a private room so we had a lot of extra space to put our stuff! We really liked our room and the common areas. The breakfast was great and so was the…"

Liked: Professionally run hostel. Very nice breakfast. They even had gluten-free and soy products available at the breakfast buffet. Bar staff was very accommodating.

Disliked: The covered walkway leading from the main building to where our rooms were was so frigid (since you are basically walking outside) it could have been the cause for me catching a cold. There were no toiletries in the rooms, not even a bar of soap.

Liked: Love this place! The bar is cheap, the people who work here are really nice and service minded. The breakfest is great, lots of options and i just love the coffee machine. Overall, the hostel is clean and definetly worth the money. It gets quite after 10 in the evening (and people seem to respect this rule) which is awesome.

Disliked: NOTHING.

Liked: It's hard to say what I liked about this property because I don't know where to start, this is easily the best hostel I have ever stayed in. To name a few of my favorite things: - The staff are so welcoming and helpful, you will recieve the most incredible customer service here, I've never experienced anything like it in other places I have stayed. - The bar is cheap and has a 'chiefs choice' for dinner, a (huge) meal and a drink for only 7.50. - They have some great facilities- free wifi, computer use, a games room, bike hire, several vending machines, free brochures and info & a free walking tour. - The bedrooms are spacious and clean and you are given clean linen (sealed in plastic) to make your bed with. - The lobby is huge with heaps of couches, tables and a TV. - The free breakfast would have to be my favorite though, there were so many options for me (I'm gluten free) there was fruit and rice cakes with meat and cheese and free coffee (the vending machine kind with options for cappuccinos etc) and a big range of free teas to chose from. Also the breakfast room was huge and no matter how many guest there were (it is a big property) there was always somewhere to sit. -The park next door (Vondlepark) is incredibly beautiful. -It is also walking distance to restaurants,cinemas and tram stops. I was so sad to leave!

Liked: Near a park, was safe and secure.

Disliked: Place did not have once ounce of community. Was completely sterile and expensive for drinks etc. Not a place if you want to meet people, felt like you are at a school camp. I would try and stay somewhere else whenever possible.

Liked: The chef's choice nightly meal was excellent value and the bar staff were very friendly and welcoming.

Disliked: Unfortunately the guy that checked us in was rather unfriendly but he was the only thorn in an otherwise very hospitable experience. The bathroom needs a shower curtain as water sprays everywhere and is then trudge through the room. A shame wifi doesn't reach to the bedrooms (only in lobby)

Liked: We liked staying here, especially because of the secure bike shed and the location right at the beautiful Vondelpark. The eight ppl bedroom with its own shower/ bathroom was clean, nice, and big enough however we were only four people staying in the room most of the time. The breakfast buffet was good as well and the staff is friendly.

Disliked: The restrooms in the lobby were really smelly!!! We payed more than for an average hostel, however, we were charged extra for quite a lot of stuff, like lockers, that should have been included for 30€ a night. The wifi didn't work well, which can always happen but the staff didn't seem to be doing anything about it and a lot of people clogged up the reception with complaints about that. So if you needed anything else you had to wait forever, and that's annoying.

Liked: It was clean, the staff was really helpful, and I really enjoyed the atmosphere. Perfect for those who want to stay away from the busy part of the city.

Disliked: Even though the location is really pleasant (in front of the park and everything), it is not as central as could be, which is great if you want to stay away from the busy part of the town, but not that awesome if you want to party...
