19 May 2015

Liked: The location is prime. Just a short walk away from Amsterdam Central Station and very close to the red light district. Other than those things I did not like the hostel at all. In my opinion this should be rated at around 60% not 71.9%... you get what you pay for and next time I return to Amsterdam I will most certainly be staying at a hotel rather than a hostel.

Disliked: No air conditioning at all. The stairs are awful to walk up and down especially when you are the very last room at the top of the building in the roof. Wifi worked in our room the first night we were there, then the next day when people occupied the rooms below us, our signal was lost and had to sit in the awkward lobby that they have. Two people sat in the lobby and were very weird and trying to talk to me, it was very uncomfortable.

Liked: The central location meant it was very easy to access all the main Amsterdam attraction. As well as this, the staff were very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: The food they had on offer was very limited. The bathroom and toilet smelled absolutely disgusting. The floors smelled strongly of weed. A very cramped, uncomfortable atmosphere, meaning I only came back to the hostel when it was absolutely necessary.

Liked: The shower was big and clean. They had functional wi-fi and a restaurant downstairs.

Disliked: The hostel was very expensive as the prices had shot up due to Christmas holidays. Also, there were some hidden charges for having booked with a credit card, but of course there is no other way to pay if you book online.

Liked: love how it was well located. near the city centre. staff were kinda friendly, made friends with the Uighur dude, who was more than happy to share with us about the where to go as a local which helped us a lot.

Disliked: I hate the fact that it has no air-condition, so it gets pretty stuffy in the afternoon in the room. The common toilet is small and cramped so I can only imagine what the bigger guys have to experience when using the toilet.Heater in the shower works fine,room was clean and location is perfect.Near to the city centre.The steps were narrow as it was described before in the previous comments.Wifi is only best at the lobby area,and it gets really bad in the rooms. The ventilation for the rooms could have been better as the smell & stench stays a long time.

Liked: Pro: The location is awesome! The staff is friendly. Lockers for free in the room.

Disliked: Cons: Well you have to like walking up a lot (and I mean a lot!) of really steep/almost dangerous stairs. If you stay there make sure your not on the top floor (4.5) as it is the smallest, hottest, stinkiest most horrible room i have ever slept in! The other rooms on other floors are ok for the price you pay.. The toilets are horrible on every floor but the showers are ok (exept on floor 4 1/2) The staff is friendly but when they asked us how we liked our room and we replied we didn't he was just laughing and saying he knew.. Also what is described as a lounge is actually a chinese restaurant next door where the reception is..

Liked: GREAT location--just a short walk from the Centraal Train Station, right next to a main tram stop, right next to the Dam Square, right next to a big super market. For those of you who smoke weed, it's allowed in the rooms! The towel and locker come with the room fee, which is really nice.

Disliked: It's not too clean, there is no kitchen or fridge, and it's super super tiny. Somehow they crammed 6 beds into our room, and four rooms of six people have to share one tiny toilet and one shower. The bathroom smelled like pee the whole time I was there, and the shower didn't smell too nice, either. Also, there isn't really a central hang out location except for the tables outside where groups of travelers smoke together.
