Liked: The location is fantastic.

Disliked: There is no free breakfast or coffee. The rooms are VERY small, and occasionally people had to switch beds in the middle of their stay because they had other booking arrangements - I had never seen that before. There is not a locker in the room luggage. Neither somewhere in the hostel.. We Need to trust in the others. Not worth the value I paid!

Liked: The location was very favourable, and the helpful nature of the staff was a welcome attribute. The value for money for the twin private room I stayed in was just about right considering the location.

Disliked: Apart from the stairs which are a bit steep (but nothing unmanagable) there is nothing to dislike.

Liked: The location was the only good thing about this hostel.

Disliked: The lobby area is horrible - drinks are way to expensive for travelers, bad music on repeat, and only one computer for everyone to use... Overall, didn't meet anyone in the lobby, which is bad for solo travelers. The toilets and showers smelled like sewage and were disgustingly dirty. The rooms are very cramped, even with the en suite option. Not a lot of fun at this hostel.

Liked: This was definitely in a good location: not too dangerous, right in the middle of the red light district, Dame Square (shopping and coffee shops), and the discotheques. This is the most important thing when you are staying in Amsterdam. Once you paid all of your fees, the employees were surprisingly nice and helpful: They provided ice and glasses to their customers for no fee from the bar, they did not prosecute me for setting off the fire alarm, and they let me keep my huge suitcase behind the counter. The reception is also open 24 hours, which can come in handy. Free towels. Pillows and comforters were not too gross.

Disliked: The stairs are steep and dangerous. There is no free breakfast or coffee and the kitchen area is small and a bit messy. The rooms are VERY small, and occasionally people had to switch beds in the middle of their stay because they had other booking arrangements - I had never seen that before. There is not really a good place to safely store luggage.

Liked: Excellent location, can't be better for someone who is staying for a first time in Amsterdam. Staff was kind and helpful. One of the best things was that you can drink and eat your own booze and food in living room.

Disliked: A bit too small rooms, ventilation could be better in rooms. 1 bathroom on one 8 bed room.

Liked: Not a huge social scene but awesome location, clean washrooms and helpful staff. A lot of free amenities: wi-fi, computer, hair dryer, even gave me a razor for free. Kitchen shouldn't be described as such: fridge, microwave and sink. No decent pots/pans, stove or knives. 8 person share with washroom is really really cramped but 4 bed share was great. Ignore comments on the stairs. All homes in historic Amsterdam have very narrow and steep stairs.

Disliked: Nothing really except maybe the kitchen

Liked: its location is excellent, very close to attractions like red light district and anne frank house. The rooms are very clean.

Disliked: The rooms are very small. They put as many beds as possible in the room. The space between beds was so little that a man could hardly pass through. The toilet was smelly also.

Liked: The location is fantastic, and the fact they have comedy central channel in every room (among others) is nice if you're hungover and just want a day in bed as I did.

Disliked: The wifi up in the rooms wasn't working. They were apologetic but didn't fix it. They don't have any couches in the common area, it is all tables and chairs. To be honest, for the first day or so I thought I was living at a Chinese takeaway shop, it has that feel about it.
