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: nice location, lockers provided, smoking room downstairs in bar

Disliked: no lobby area as it is the bar so if u awake before 9 u have to stay in the room or leave the building/check out or so i was told. breakfast served at 9 and u have to out by 10. NO FREE WI-FI! as advertised. I paid 3 euro for wifi and it was super slow and usuable. no wifi in rooms.

08 December 2011 Drew would recommend this property

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.

Liked: Stuff is very very helpfull and polite. Location is just awesome - right in the city centre, just some steps to Amsterdam Centraal station, few minutes walk to all the main city's famous places like e.g. Dam square. Cheepest for this location.

Disliked: Nothing to fill in here :)
