Liked: This place is great bang for your bucks...in the red light district. great place if all you need is a place to sleep. Clean sheets, bunk bed was fine. Very steep stairs.

Disliked: no place to socialize with others in the hostel. But i guess their is many coffee shops and pubs next door to do that.

Liked: It is close to Amsterdam Centraal so it was convenient as we were only staying one night. Met a few nice people in our room but others weren't so open to coversation.

Disliked: It is very close to the redlight district and so it is very busy at night and the walls were quite thin so you could hear the couple upstairs getting physical in the shower and at the same time hear the shouts and business of the streets below. It was very warm and there isn't any air con or good ventilation so that also made it very hard to sleep.

Liked: Perfectly located and exactly what you need when you need to get your head down after experiencing all Amsterdam has to offer.

Disliked: Stairs are very steep, made it difficult to carry larger bags and cases up to the top floor. Only 2 showers/toilets for 40+ guests.

Liked: The hostel is located in the very heart of the city, and as such you will be very close to all its landmarks. If you plan on going for Kings day only, i would recommend a hostel located a bit farther in the actual canal rings, as the most fun is located there.

Disliked: The bathroom wasn't cleaned as much as i would like, and the rooms themselves felt dirty (so much so that I asked the staff for a vacuum cleaner so that i could clean it myself - didn't help much though). The rooms are very small, however if you are traveling with 2 or 3 friends you can book a 4 bedroom room and have a bit more privacy as compared to a 8 person bedroom. We did have a TV in the room, and the WiFi was pretty decent. All in all i would not recommend this hostel for those who suffer from even mild forms of OCD since you will have a need to clean the whole damn thing. For younger people that just need a place to sleep with a convenient location its would be suitable.

Liked: The staff was very helpful when we wanted to switch rooms and just in general. The hostel is also affliated with a cute crepes and waffles shop next door to which you get a discount.

Disliked: The smell of weed permeated the entire premisis, despite no smoking signs, it is located just a street over from the red light district, there were crude drawings all over the walls, and lots of sex shops and coffee shops in the area. I suppose these things aren't negatives if they are the reason you went to Amsterdam but we did not feel at all comfortable there.

Liked: Location was great being in the center of the red light district!

Disliked: Everything else. They barely check whos coming in and out of the hostel, the ceilings were leaking, noisy people throughout the rooms, miniscule steps made it very hard to bring suitcases up flight of stairs. I guess you get what you pay for though.
