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.

Liked: The location is literally a two minute walk from Dam square!!! Also the beds were extremely comfy which were very unexpected. The staff were very pleasant and also allowed us to borrow some fans (placed a 20euro deposit) when our room was very hot. Also free wifi!!!

Disliked: We were on the top floor which meant climbing 5 flights of very steep stairs.

Liked: The receptionist was pretty nice. And the location is just next to the dam square and only 5 min walking to . Also there's a tram station in front of the hostel. That's also pretry that there are nice cafes and bars around.

Disliked: The stairs were very bad and narrow. I think they are all like that in Amsterdam. Also wifi was not good in the upper room.

Liked: Brilliant location, 2 mins from Dam Square and everything you need for a short stay. Very clean too.

Disliked: The only complaint was the 5% tourist charge they only mentioned when it came to paying, this should be clearer online.

Liked: Location was good. Only a five minute walk from everything you'd want to be near.

Disliked: The stairs up to the top were really steep and very close together, a tricky climb after a night of merriment.

Liked: 1st we got given the wrong key and eneded up in someone else's room but that was easily sorted out. Toilets are tiny! U have to ask for locker key and towel. There's a lot of small/tiny stairs to climb also!

Disliked: Stairs, toilet so small

Liked: This hostel is superb, the staff are friendly, helpful, full of local knowledge and go the extra mile. The facilities are cleaned daily, lockers for the valuables , free wireless internet in the lounge. All you can imagine. It's location is in the heart of Amsterdam and it's an easy walk to get anywhere. Besides, it is a 24-hour open hostel. At night, reception secures the door at the entrance, it just gives any travelers the feeling of more security, I only had to wait a couple of seconds for the door to be buzzed.

Disliked: Nothing special actually. If there's one, it must be the stairs. But this is Amsterdam. I've been to Amsterdam 3 times, and I feel that almost all the hostels on the same street have the same structure to be honest. Unless you stay in a 3 stars hotel :)

Liked: The location was great, at the center of the city

Disliked: People were complaining about the steep stairs to the room... well, that was the least of the problems, which were: 1) The door was not easy to unlock, had to turn the lock several times until eventualy it would unlock 2) The public bathroom door would slam and we could hear it from the room all night 3) the private room for two didn't have a twin bed, jut two single beds so we could not sleep together 4) the sheets were not clean, and the room had a strong cigarrete smell 5) there were lots of pubes in the (private) toilet (it hadn't been cleaned before we arrived) 6) the sink drain was clogged 7) the place where you hang the towels had dust all over it 8) the bathroom flooded 9) the puf was very small 10) the heater didn't work 11) The walls and ceiling were very thin so we could hear all other guests it seemed as if every detail was arranged so as to not work properly. We had to pay for the 3 nights in advance, otherwise we would certainly change to other hostel.

Liked: Location is walking distance from central train station and makes it easy to get to from airport.-15 min train. Good walking area for shops and little restos. Hot showers are always going strong and hot! :)

Disliked: Trash bin in bathroom was never emptied so it was spilling out and over. Bring slippers for bathroom as the shower gets the floor wet all the time!

Liked: I really liked the location. It was at the center of everything. There were multiple places of interest just a few mins away.

Disliked: I disliked that there was no real common area to meet other travelers. Not a good place to stay if you're traveling alone. I was with a group but would've liked to meet other people.
