Margaret Lloyd thinks…

"The location was good and the staff were kind. There are cats, so no mice problems, and sometimes they'll sit on your lap. This hostel is quite nice if you're just looking for a basic bed with toast…"

Liked: Los miembros del staff en su mayoría son muy atentos y cordiales, salvo la persona que estuvo por la mañana que no sé si fue sólo un día o comúnmente tiene ese mal humor.

Disliked: La cocina no es muy grande, pero igual está bien. El desayuno es sencillo, pero sirve para arrancar el día, lo que si deberían modificar es la sala de estar, donde se come y desayuna que es super pequeña.

Liked: Beds were comfy, and the facilities were reasonably clean. The price was very good considering the time of year I stayed.

Disliked: There isn't much atmosphere, the common room is small. You can only leave your luggage until 2pm. Also, having the bathrooms in the dorm can create problems. It's also somewhat far away from the nightlife in Amsterdam, but located in a very safe and quiet area.

A walk distance from all the great museums and the main nightlife area.

Disliked: poor breakfast, toilets and shower a bit small and unconvenient.

Liked: Good location in Museum District, close to tram stops. Friendly staff. Allowed us to keep our luggage at the hostel for a few hours after we checked out.

Disliked: Shared a 10-person mixed room. Toilet/shower room was attached to the room and was very small. Staff was friendly and responsive but their review of the surrounding area and details of hostel when we checked in was minimal.

Liked: Comfortable beds, was close to major museums.

Disliked: The manager. We travel quite a bit, and have stayed in a lot of hostels. We've never experienced anything close to what we came across in this hostel. We arrived to find that our reservation had been cancelled--they claimed there had been a problem with the credit card and blamed it on Hostelbookers policy. He told me my reservation was cancelled and then immediately got defensive and wouldn't let me talk for awhile, talking over me and insisting it was hostelbookers fault. He then tried to charge us as walk-ins (50 Euros a night instead of the 17 Euros we had booked) before telling us he would give us a deal. He charged us only twice the original price (34 euros a night). We took it because that was still cheaper than anything else in town day of. In the two days we spent there we watched at least four groups get the same treatment. A group of three showed up to find their reservation cancelled even though they had called to confirm it the day before. They were told to pay same day prices or leave. Another group had to pay the price of a 6 person room even though there was no room for them to stay together in a six person room and they had to stay in a ten person room. These confrontations took place over the phone with the manager and usually ended with the manager hanging up on his clients.

14 May 2013 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The location was great and the beds were clean. Also, hostel doors are always locked so you have to buzz in or swipe in with your room key, which is good for safety.

Disliked: The toilet and the shower were literally together with no separation, and there was only one for a 10-bed room, so no one could use the toilet if someone was showering, and after someone showered the room was entirely soaked, including all the floors, walls, and the toilet. Also, the sink was directly in the room, so it was very loud in the morning when people got up early and were brushing their teeth/etc. There were also no lockers available, and the "free breakfst"consisted of bread (no toaster), butter, peanut butter, jelly, tea and coffee. There were no juices or cereal or anything. The price is fine for what you get and is fine for a couple nights stay, but it is definitely lacking in areas.
