Breeanna Cave thinks…

"I loved this hostel! We stayed in a "16 person" dorm the first night and it was actually 8-bed dorms split into two rooms which was great. The second night was a private and the bathroom was nicer…"

Liked: Das Zimmer (3er Zimmer mit Bad) war top, modern ausgestattet, neues Bad, hell mit Blick auf die hintere Gracht, Bettwäsche war da, nur keine Handtücher. Nachts war es sehr ruhig auf den Fluren. Alles in Allem ist das Hostel sehr empfehlenswert, auch wegen der guten zentralen Lage (wenn einen das Rotlicht-milieu drumherum nicht stört ;)

Disliked: es gab leider kein Frühstück inklusive, man konnte Frühstück bestellen, das war aber eher dürftig und hatte recht hohe Preise. es gab keinen Aufenthaltsraum oder Küche, wo man sein eigenes Essen unterbringen oder verzehren konnte. Die Atmosphäre unten in der Bar war eher für den Abend bestimmt und sehr dunkel.

Liked: It was centrally located.

Disliked: This was only the second hostel I had stayed in at the time I arrived there so I wasn't sure if all places would be this bad. Now after traveling 3 continents and 10 countries I can say this is the worst I stayed at. The man working reception when I arrived to check in in the afternoon was moody and unhelpful. The room itself was a 10 person dorm with only ONE key for the whole room! So when someone came back later in the night (as they tend to do in Amsterdam) they would have to knock on the door and wake someone up to get in. The bathroom was ensuite but had no light. Overall not someplace I would recommend.

Liked: The location is the best thing about this hostel it a short walk from Central station so a good place to stay if you are arriving by train. It is also close to lots of attractions.

Disliked: The bunk beds in the room I stayed in did not have ladders so you get disturb by the person getting into the top bunk. Only one bathroom on the floor I stayed but I didn't have any trouble getting in it.

Liked: The location is superb and the bar feels lively and friendly.

Disliked: I am not 100% sure of how good the security as, although this didn't happen, I think some one could "tailgate" you through the door as you don't have to go directly past the desk to get in the building, but you do have to ask the desk you let you in.

Liked: So central! The location is excellent. Secure building ... have to get buzzed in by the front desk. Very friendly staff.

Disliked: The rooms are split into 3 "bays" of 6-8 beds. The ones on the sides have more privacy, but you still have 22 people filtering through the center. Not good if you get stuck there. The location is great (very central) but it's a tradeoff for carousing drunkards screaming in the streets at 3AM. Wifi is good, but doesn't really reach the 3rd floor rooms. Power outlets scarce.

Liked: Great location!! Room was spacious and very clean. The beds were very comfy!

Disliked: It was really loud in the hallway at night, but it is also located near a lot of bars and pubs so it was kind of expected. Still slept well!!
