Robert Falcao thinks…

"Nice and friendly staff, also the discount on the crepes and waffles place and a pub down the road was really great. Rooms were okay, clean and decent beds."

Liked: Location and internet are the only great things about it. Other than that, I would pay a little more money for other hostels around there.

Disliked: My friend and I stayed a night and woke up with bed bug bites. Not sure if they wash their sheets/blankets all that well, but the mattress we slept on must have been old and nasty. Because of this I regret staying there. Otherwise, it would have been acceptable considering I was on a budget. I would pay more money just for a clean bed where I don't have to worry about getting bitten at night. Out of the many hostels I've stayed at in Europe, this one is the worst. But if you don't plan on sleeping and just need a shower, by all means stay here. You can't beat the location and the reception area is decent.

Liked: The location was fantastic, only a few minutes walk from Central station, meaning we could fly into Schiphol and then get a train pretty much to the hostel, with just a few minutes walk. Also, it was very close to everything else such as the Red Light District, shopping, bars and clubs etc. Coffee shop just over the road ;) The staff were quite nice in reception.

Disliked: Someone had urinated in my bed when I had got in late one night, which wasn't pleasant. The room was unbearably hot at night, eventhough I slept next to the window! No kitchen for backpackers either.

Liked: Just location.

Disliked: The staff is not friendly at all. The rooms are really dirty. There are even rats. The bathrooms are a mess. The rooms are not secure. Your belongings can be stolen (As we suffered) Different prices for the beds depending on the mood of the stuff. they even overbook the rooms. The price is not according to the quality of the place.

Liked: There was nothing likeable about this property, Had to change hotels as the smell was disgusting, the window was nailed shut, the heating didn't work, the door wasnt secure, a total disaster of a place. The location was on busy street right next to red light district. Also the main recpetion charged us for staying one night even though we never, so lost out on £100, The pricing was round about the same as the 4Star hotel we then ended up staying in. Total rip off. Do not book this hostel!
