01 October 2011 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Although we were in a mixed dorm of 22, it was really clean. The location is really good. 5-10 minute walk from the train station and right by the main bars, coffee shops and the red light district. Its also on the canal which is pretty. One of the receptionists (a man) was really helpful and tried to make our stay more enjoyable. Go to St.Christopher's bar at night, its a good bar.

Disliked: Bit strange that you have no key, you just have to show a bit of card when you go in the bar (as it is above the bar) and they let you through. Once people are through, they can then theoretically get into any room. If you are females on your own, DO NOT go through the red light district on your own at night. We weren't warned about this, and accidently walked through the main strip where a Dutch man shouted at us and followed us out. Its a nice place if you know the rules..

Liked: Free wi-fi in the room was nice, 24h reception as well. Good location - right in the middle of the red light district. Staff was nice, but not overly helpful.

Disliked: The fact that the doors are always unlocked in the bigger dorms is a bit dodgy. Not much room in the showers. There was no kitchen and you cannot eat your own food in bar. Apart from the smoking room, there weren't any other common areas where you can just chill out.

Liked: Quite Good though when you be sitting in the right edge of the red light district.. You can have real inside image anytime despite you will be coming to red like district from the long distances.. Very near to central station, Dam Square and in the heart of red light district...

Disliked: Bar is more like possessive about their products and sales. very mean looking.. Rest is good just for the sake of stay and relaxing your back and move on..

Liked: It was in a great spot, and the smoking room is a nice touch if you are so inclined. The guy who was managing the place was very helpful and pointed out some good things to go visit as he knew the place very well.

Disliked: It was rather dirty, and the smokers room I think attracted the wrong sorts of people staying there. Not a very solo traveller friendly hostel.
