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!

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: CocoMama is in a former brothel building and the rooms are themed - we stayed in the brothel themed room with topless female pictures on the wall. It has lots of character and is rustic in decor. It is safe and secure and pretty well located (about 15 mins from Leidseplein and a tram lines nearby).

Disliked: It was pricey in terms of hostels - I paid more to stay in a 6 bed dorm here than I have to be in a private room elsewhere with breakfast included. The kitchen area is small - that was fine except that space in the fridge was a premium and we had a bit of food go missing here. Not happy with a 10 hour bus trip the next day to find the food we had for it gone. The staff and owners are friendly and interact with guests - though I find it a bit weird to be listening to them discuss their social lives and be eating dinner next to you in the kitchen. Some people would like that though. There is a cat too - so if you are not a cat person you will have to tolerate a cat in the kitchen with you.

Liked: i wrealy liked the beds...own powerouttake, big beds where the bottom ones got drapes to pull for more privacy and the top ones have large woddenwall, Nice commonroom with enough space for relaxing, cooking and have a place to sit down, unfortanetly the garden at this time was offlimits. Godd location if you wanna see more of amsterdam then the red light district. Short walk from the hostel will bring you to the local cafes and bars.

Disliked: bad location of you wanna be wery close to the city center center. Tryiing to hard to be friendly

Liked: Brilliant hostel... Things we liked: lovely, helpful, chatty staff; comfortable beds, great showers, honesty bar (only 1 euro for beer); delightful communal area

Disliked: No lockers in room (even though they had a safe we could put valuables in)- this is only temporary: new lockers have been ordered! Distance was ok, bit of a walk to dam square etc but tram stops right outside!
