Liked: The location

Disliked: I disliked the fact that the showers were made for extremely small people and were to hot, plus the water didn't come out powerfully enough. The building could do with a lift and a but more space in the rooms with air conditioning.

Liked: We stayed there during the Queen's Day, it was full but still nice. Excellent location, 5-minutes walking distance from Dam Square on one side and the central train station on the other. Staff is really nice. Rooms have high-tech lockers with password. Free internet works on the rooms.

Disliked: The hostel lacks common spaces, so people stay in the rooms to chat, which is terrible for who wants to sleep. Also, a eight-person room with only one bathroom is terrible, had to wait hours in the morning for shower.

Liked: The location is great. Close to central station and dt amsterdam. Only 10 minutes or so from Anne Frank, Van gogh museum and red light district. Showers were HOT. Rooms were safe. and they have lots of discount cards and maps at the front desk

Disliked: What i didn't like about the property was the noise. windows are not very sound proof. they are also old and they let in a draft so i would recommend choosing a bed against the wall and not the window.

Liked: I liked very much the location close to Amsterdam Central Station and the fact that inside the rooms there are safe boxes that can be used free of charge. The atmosphere was nice and the view of the street with the tram and all the people is absolutely amazing. The room mates were not very friendly but at least quiet.

Disliked: The stairway leading to the hostel is very long!

Liked: Location is absolutely great - 5 minutes to Centraal Station, 5 minutes to Dam Square and shopping street. I would recommend this hostel to young tourists like myself who aren't planning to spend any time in hostel and who are just looking for a bed to crash after a crazy day/night out! I went to Amsterdam specially to see Drake's concert which was a metro journey away - staff told me everything there is to know about public transport and even printed a map. When I asked about earliest train times to the airport for the next day, they looked up train times, printed the train schedule and advised me of the costs - truly helpful!Overall, the hostel is not bad at all. Location is great, the room is quite clean and staff is helpful. If you are planning a crazy holiday and need a place to leave your stuff and sleep - perfect place for you!

Disliked: I was a bit disappointed when it came to a size of the room. It was meant to be triple but one of them was just a mattress on the floor! Also hotel has crazy policies such as NO FOOD in the room! I had to sneak in my midnight snacks... If fire alarm goes off in the room - you will have to pay 100 euro. Fair enough, it's a non smoking room, however someone in hostel started smoking and our whole room was left in smoke - luckily fire alarm didn't go off! There was so much smoke that we could have been blamed for this easily!
