Liked: Great Location.

Disliked: Staff weren't very friendly at all, in an 8 bed dorm there were only 6 lockers and they were of poor quality, the one I was using was all bent out of shape as if someone had tried to break into it. One of the 6 didn't even close properly. Very loud so take earplugs.

Liked: Good services. Helpful and flexible staff. 24h reception. Bar open until 3 where you can drink and smoke. Lovely back area by the canal. Really central hostel. Rooms were clean and simple. Good bathroom and shower. Great music most of the time at the bar.

Disliked: The food was okay, but nothing special. However, it is really quite cheap if you are staying at the hostel.

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.
