Liked: The place has character as it was once a former brothel and all the rooms have different dutch themes. The staff are really friendly and there is also a cat to make you feel at home (not so good if you are allergic). The beds were extremely comfy complete with feather down duvets. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Disliked: If your allergic to cats then this is not the hostel for you. The hostel is also a 30min walk from the centre of town though it is a very pretty walk along the canals and there is a tram stop just down from the hostel. Again not a problem for me.

Liked: Awesome hostel! Really nice, comfy beds, solid bunks that don't sway side to side when you climb into them. Really cool building, super nice common area and backyard space, amazingly well stocked kitchen with 8 burners so you don't have to fight anyone to cook dinner! Wonderful and beautiful location in a real Amsterdam neighborhood, away from the touristy center but still close enough to walk. Loved it!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: This hostel is really human-sized, and the atmosphere here is great (people, staff, music... cat ^^). The bed are comfortable and the curtains give some privacy to everyone. Tram station 50m away (10 min from city center), supermarket 200m away, it's not in the very middle but nothing is really far from you and the rooms stay quiet during the night. Official check-in is at 4pm, but the staff won't let you out if you arrive earlier! Would definitely come back here again.

Disliked: MATHIEU left no negative feedback.

Liked: the kitchen and common area are great, nice and big with all facilities and a great place to kick back on in the lounge area. Free internet. Ensuite bathrooms

Disliked: Didn't like how you have to phisically lock your bedroom door when you leave the room, most places have the swipe cards. No smoking in the back yard either, which is weird for Amsterdam. And this place for me was really expensive. Its a great clean and safe hostel but I've stayed at places equally as nice for a lot less

Liked: Amazing staff, really good guest profile, no smoking, great location (far enough from the cente to not feel touristy, but only a 15 minute walk away), JOOP! They even went out of their way to include vegetarian options in the (traditional Dutch) Christmas meal so that I and some other veggies could join!
