Liked: The location is worth noting as it is a short walk from Amsterdam Centraal train station and overlooks the canal.

Disliked: No WiFi in the rooms, no plug sockets near the beds and not enough for a room full of 10 people or more. Also, prices in the bar downstairs were excessive. 2.50 for a can of Fanta!

Liked: The location was absolutely the best, and the Hostel has a pub as well, which is awesome for me.

Disliked: I'd say half of the staff I knew looked liked they hated their job, furthermore, they weren't really friendly.

Liked: 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 than some of the bathrooms I have had in my own home. There were lockers for your stuff in the dorms but you needed your own locks. The staff was super friendly and were willing to give tips and directions to everywhere. The security was very strict on letting people up into the rooms which made me feel extremely secure. The happy hour 2 beers for 5 euros was awesome and the smoking room could use some couches but overall served its purpose. Last but not least, the location is absolutely amazing. Right in the heart of red light, smoke shops, and next to the train station. Would 100% go back.
