Liked: The hostel was so close to the centre of amsterdam so there was always something new to do, the staff were fantastic and you could always find someone to speak to if there was a problem. The rooms we're clean and the bathrooms looked like new. The bar was cheap compared to most places and the food was amazing, the smoking room was great too it had the feel of an old pub with the atmosphere of a chilled out bar in town. They gave you locks for the lockers and had a safe down the stairs and you couldn't get into the hotel part without a room card which made you feel even more safe. The beds we're clean and quite comfortable.

Disliked: The stairs were quite steep but everywhere in amsterdam is like that. The room mates we had we're always asleep so we had to be really quiet whenever we were in the room.

Liked: Great location.

Disliked: The beds were bad; the upper bed was too low so that you couldn't sit on the lower bed, and it was hard to climb up to the upper bed. I stayed in two different rooms and in the other one there were only small lockers where you couldn't put your big backpack in. Even though it was quite nice to stay in this hostel, since I met great people and the location was so excellent.

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.
