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!!

Liked: The owner was extremely helpful in giving us recommendations on places to eat and party that would suit any budget. Very friendly, knowledgeable and mindful of security/safety.

Disliked: Not much. The bartender at night was a little less than courteous when he told us they had closed and wouldn't serve us. Rooms were clean, bathrooms clean, towels free, atmosphere fun, location great.

Liked: Staff were pleasant. Rooms and toilets/showers were clean. Food was quite good. Located very close to the red light delights. My favourite part was the bar lounge where you can drink and smoke joints until 3AM every night (5AM Fri/Sat I think) and showing live sports channels. They even had ice cold Irn-Bru. And it was less than £15 a night. Carlsberg don't do accommodation...

Disliked: No complaints.

Liked: very close to central station, walking about 10 mins. bathrooms are clean.

Disliked: the first floor is a bar, so there is no really common room, you can use internet there, but it will close when the bar closed.

Liked: The location is great. Near Amsterdam Centraal and RLD. It is very difficult to find though. No signage and no locals have heard of it.

Disliked: The staff. They were rude, useless and generally a hindrance the entire time. They enforced no rules that didnt affect them, for example complaints about smoking regularly happening within the room fell upon deaf ears.

Liked: The location is brilliant, right on the edge of the Red Light District and only a few minutes to the train station and shops. The sports bar was right up my street, always showing multiple football games etc. Big smoking room with pool table's to keep you busy. Food was fairly good and you get 20% food if your staying there.

Disliked: Bar and smoking rooms are very dated inside and could do with a re-fit but it wasn't something that put me off.

16 November 2011 Kacie would recommend this property

Liked: It is right in the red light district. There was lots to see just steps from the front door. Also the bar is nice, and cheaper than regular bars in the area. They have a smoking room with a pool table and foosball. The bathrooms were also pretty clean, the showers seemed almost brand new.

Disliked: The hostel was kinda dirty in general and constantly smelled of marijuana in every part despite people only being allowed to smoke it in the smoke room. The sheets/beds are clean but not very comfortable. The locker situation was ridiculous. Many of the lockers in our room were missing doors so we had a small locker on the second floor with a room on the third floor, this seemed to be common practice like they knew the lockers were unusable and did not care to fix them any time soon.
