Liked: There is 24 hour reception and a computer available for use as well as free wi-fi.

Disliked: I stayed in a room where there was a roof top outside the window and when I opened the window a mouse came in. I caught it and put it outside, but just be careful when opening the windows!

Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpful when called upon. The location was good, although having known beforehand that everywhere in Amsterdam is an allright walking distance, we would have booked elsewhere.

Disliked: The dorm was tiny, cramped, and smelled. The shower is a shut room and therefore smells of mold and does not seem very clean. On our last night the re was some sort of leakage into our bathroom from the floor above.

Liked: Good location and a upgrade was cheep

Disliked: 6 people jammed in a tiny room literally no room, none of the tvs worked in the room, the bathroom had throw up dripping from the ceiling one morning. Staff often wernt helpful or were difficult to understand. Overpriced for what it is. If you book late this isnt a terrible choice but if there are other options book them.
