Breeanna Cave thinks…

"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…"

Liked: Nothing.... One staff member was nice and helpful - she warned us about the poor security of their hostel... !

Disliked: The rooms were very stuffy... because 20+ people should NOT sleep in such a small space! Other travelers ate their breakfast in their bunk beds, levaing a mess around their beds... making it difficult to get around the room... Neighborhood is quiet during the day, but noisy throughout the night... If you want to sleep - do not go to this hostel... it is in the middle of the red light district.... go there for the sex=servers, live sex shows and "coffee shops"...

Liked: The location just cannot be bettered. The pool table and smoking room is great too!

Disliked: The staff were evidently unhappy and it didn't seem like a very healthy working environment. Some of that was bound to show up in their interaction with guests, though they did try to be helpful.

Liked: One guy on reception was really helpful and friendly, recommending places to eat & directing us around the city. Free wifi in bar was good, bathrooms were pretty clean too.

Disliked: One niggle would be that there was barely enough light to see in the bathroom. Also it didn't feel completely secure, but the staff assured us that they kept a close eye on who was coming and going.

Liked: The location.

Disliked: The staff - if you arrive during night time, they're not friendly at all, even thought you've noticed them of you time of arrival. The room didn't look clean, and it smell bad.

Liked: It was central to a lot of things, and if you are staying there, the bar is open 24 hours.

Disliked: TERRIBLE value for the money. most expensive hostel i stayed in the entire time i was in europe. one of my roommates was a 50+ year old man who stripped naked, lay face up on the bed and asked me to whip him for money. When I told the front desk that it had happened, and not just to me, they just shrugged. not enough lockers for beds, HOT HOT HOT. no air flow what so ever.

Liked: It was my best experience with Amsterdam hostels so far. Location is perfect. I've never seen such a clean bathrooms and showers in any other hostel (Croydon, Travel Hotel, White Tulip, Amsterdam Centre). They have a nice personal and a good bar to have some fun. I met so many cool buddies to chat there :)

Disliked: wifi spot is too small, not even covers all the bar area, and not that many other facilities
