Liked: Nice hostel with a great location right next to the Vondelpark and a few minutes walk to Leidseplein. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the en-suite bathroom was nice to have, even if it was a little utilitarian. Had very few issues, would definitely recommend.

Disliked: - Need to use expensive safes downstairs as in-room lockers not that secure - Hostel wifi coverage a bit patchy. -Atmosphere a bit sterile

Liked: The hostel was clean and simple. It was right beside a nice park. The hostel is a good location for people who are looking to party since it is right near the main partying central square of Amsterdam.

Disliked: It was somewhat difficult to find since you have to go down a long side street in order to see it. The staff were not that friendly nor helpful and were more about getting people in and out.

Liked: The staff were great and really friendly. Good breakfast and free wifi which was pretty fast. Awesome location right in front of Vondelpark and the Museums.

Disliked: When I stayed there were loads of school kids. They didn't bother you but I'd probably prefer a more mature environment.

Liked: The Breakfast is wonderful. They even allow you to pack a lunch. The cafe is also nice and reasonably priced. They have a very large lobby for internet and even have a game room. The tours offered are awesome and easy to find information to get around.

Disliked: The only things I do not like about the hostel are that you cannot get wifi in the rooms, the rooms dont have air conditioning and the windows barely open, and they do not have a kitchen to make your own meals. Other than that the hostel is Wonderful.

Liked: Handy location from tram, size of complex, don't feel cramped. Lovely breakfast

Disliked: Beds with wooden sides, like cots. The shower made such a mess, the rose needed to be moved as it was spilling water into the area where you usually put your clothes. Couldn't move it so clothes had to be hung up. No fans in toilet or shower

Liked: The hostel is really very clean! The bed and bed sheet, pilow are very good. They have discounts for many things like the boat trip. The staff are very good and helpful. The breakfast is the better one I had in a hostel until now.

Disliked: The shower is a little instable with the temperature, it changes a few somethimes, but not a big problem, because the hot water works. The internet on mobile is for free and very good, but on local computers are not, but is not very expensive.

Liked: The breakfast offered was fantastic - with a wide variety of choices. It's a one stop place for travellers as tours and tickets can be booked through the hostel, which saves time and effort. Bed was quite comfortable as well.

Disliked: The toilet smells a bit damp and could use some refurbishment.
