Liked: Excellent central location in the Red-Light District.

Disliked: No kitchen or access to hot water. The staff were unhelpful, and apparently just wanted our money. No working lock on the door. No working phone. Overall: A good place if you just need somewhere to sleep, and intend to eat out frequently.

Liked: Excellent location, thats the strong point of the hostel, some good bathrooms and a sportsbar downstairs.

Disliked: You have to ask at the reception that open the door, the beds are not so good and the bedrooms are cold. The bar closes early and you only have wifi at this place.

Liked: I've never stayed in a hostel before but this place far exceeded my expectations and opinions of them. I had a great time with my stay here. I found it to be a fun and very sociable place. The facilities where great! Bedrooms more than sufficient, with clean facilities for showering etc. I would highly recommend this place and would definitely stay here again!

Disliked: There's not much to dislike. Unless your looking for a 5 star hotel!

Liked: It has a great location, right in the heart of the Amsterdam Centrum. Quite decent lockers and had to show a card to get in and buzz in as well at night, so felt quite secure. A decent bar right downstairs, sports on the tube but the beer was a bit pricy. Staff were nice enough.

Disliked: Small bathrooms with tiny showers but clean enough. No breakfast, kitchen or common room so if you're looking for a cozy feeling, don't come here. It's quite a large hostel with pretty much just beds and bathrooms that aren't worth the price.

Liked: The employee was very helpful and friendly

Disliked: The bed had only a blanket and the room was little bit cold. Though battery was red hot. Very unsecure, other visitors can come to your room at any time as you can't lock door to your room. Lots of noise; church ringing it's bells almoast next door on opposite side of bridge. Could also hear conversations clearly when people spoke outside on the street. Also the bar downstairs was easily heard. Wi-fi only in the bar downstairs.

Liked: The hostel is very well located, it is near a lot of cofeeshops, Red Light District, and also near the Central Station. I could do everything by foot when I was there. I was in a 20 people dorm but you couldn't feel that there was so many people in the room because of the way that the room is organized, with divisions inside the room. They have lockers for a 5 euro deposit (that you can take back when you leave the Hostel).

Disliked: It's not a big deal, but... no Wi-Fi at the rooms, just at the reception (that is also a pub)

Liked: The location of the property was amazing. Right in the red light district but in a quiet corner. Don't know why everyone was complaining about the cleanliness. The 20 person room my friends and I stayed in was clean and had comfy beds. Showers and toilets were really clean and up to date. The discount at the bar made for great reasonable food and the happy hour was fantastic. Also found the bar tender and Alan guy working the desk to be really helpful. Would reccomend this property to anyone who is a backpacker type.

Disliked: Wish there had been wifi in the dorms, but it worked well in the lounge.

Liked: Location was brill-so close to red light, but still on a quiet street. The view from the rooms was really cool too. Nice smoking area and bar with pool tables/tvs etc. The food they served at the bar was sooo good! Lovely hot showers and even the 20 bed room didn't feel crowded as it was split into 3 sections.

Disliked: Reception staff were quite rude and not very friendly. The beds had bedbugs and when I complained they said I couldn't move beds and that the only thing I could do if I didn't like it was to check out of the hostel! Also during football matches the bar gets very rowdy and fights break out so glasses get smashed and there is a lot of shouting.

Liked: Despite sleeping in a 20 person bedroom, the room was laid out so that it wouldn't be much of a problem. The bathrooms were always clean and the staff were more than helpful with any questions we had. The hostel itself was easy to find and in a fantastic location.

Disliked: There was a lack of electrical outlets on one side of the room, but the side me and my friends stayed in was fine.
