Liked: A good place to rest my head after the joys of Amsterdam, nothing fancy just what was needed.

Disliked: Didn't have a front key, so had to buzz, but they usually promptly let you in.

Liked: i guess if you want to be central and right in the middle of the red light district the location is good

Disliked: the staff were distinctly unfriendly quotes include "not everythings for free" when asking for a plastic cup and "who do you think you are" when asking why we were charged charged a higher price than someone else. The bathroom smelled so strongly of 'dirty old man' we had to keep the door closed at all times, they decided 7am was a good time to do construction work at our door, free internet was one computer, free breakfast was minimal to say the least. it was very noisey but i guess thats what you get so central our main problem really was the rude staff who made us pay one price, quoted a lower price to another customer and got abusive when questioned about this.

Liked: The only good thing about this place was the location - but there are lots of others in the same area... Find somewhere else!

Disliked: The cleanliness was terrible (we saw a mouse in our room). The staff were not friendly or helpful - in fact the only time we got a smile was when we were leaving. Getting information out of them was like pulling teeth. The breakfast was terrible - two slices of bread with a guard watching over to make sure no one took more than their two slices of bread. I would not recommend this hostel to anyone - it was by far the worst hostel we've stayed in.
