Liked: Absolutely nothing except the location.

Disliked: I had money stolen from my wallet while I slept. While I didn't expect anything much more when I brought up at the desk, I got not sympathy at all and told it was my fault.

Liked: 24 hour access and located in central Amsterdam, near a variety of lovely restaurants

Disliked: Stairs were hell, four flights of ridiculously steep stairs were not what we expected! Room was very cramped between 6, and don't bother paying for the private bathroom, the shared is much nicer!

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.
