"Have a noise in the night. No too clean, because a badroom with 8 diferent person is a mass sometimes. Good breakfast. People nice."

Liked: Location! Great buffet-breakfast included in price, clean rooms, great staff, great atmosphere!

Disliked: If you have a light sleep you might have to use some earplugs because of the people talking loudly in the street but definitely not a deal-breaker!

Liked: The location is great because it's so close to Central Station and Dam Square. The hostel is super clean which I really loved. Everything looked new inside the rooms, including the bathroom and shower. The staff and cleaners were all very helpful and nice.

Disliked: There is no wi-fi in the rooms. You have to go out to the bar area to use the Internet and it gets really loud out there.

Liked: Location is very great. Close to the train station, Dam square, on the border of the red district. Perfect if you stay in Amsterdam a few hours or a few days. Clients are very international, so it is easy to meet a lot of cool people. It is clean and in a safe location. A lot of free tours, or tour discounts are available at the hostel. we did not find the lockers inside the bedroom but rather outside in front of reception. safe and useful with room for two hand luggage for airplane. Food at belushi's is good, fair price with the hostel discount. Drinks are a lil expensive but it is Amsterdam price. Smokers friendly. Nice big breakfast included.

Disliked: Nothing. It is a hostel not an hotel with its pros and cons

Liked: really liked that place. just what a good hostel has to be like.

Disliked: on Sunday one of the staff, young guy with black hair, decorating the handrails or something, upstairs by the washrooms, was unfriendly and pushed me, but it might have been just a misunderstanding. apart from this little incident everyone was really nice and helpful so thank u everyone! Oh and an other thing. It would be nice to have something like psychedelic patterns, kaleidoscopic animations on the telly, instead of football on all of them at the same time.

Liked: The bar downstairs was really good - great music and an indoor smoking area if you're so inclined. The food menu looked good although we didn't have chance to try it and the drink prices were reasonable for Amsterdam. Also heard good things about The Winston Club nextdoor which had live bands daily. Also got free entry if you were in Beluccis bar (main hostel bar) at the end of the night. We stayed in a double room which had a very comfy bed and the covers were changed daily. You can also get fresh towels daily if they are left on the floor. Fantastic location and friendly staff so would definately recommend for a cheap getaway if you're not planning on spending much time in the room.

Disliked: The room felt really clinical and the bathroom stank!! The bathroom was clean but very dated and small with no window or extractor fan abd a vent of some sort in the floor which was responsible for the sewage smell. A small hole in the wall in the shower lead to outside but wasn't very effective in clearing steam of the sewage smell! Concrete floor in the room which wasn't great for comforrt and worse when cold!! Think they were laying carppets as we left though... Would recommend to ladies (or gentleman!) that enjoy getting dressed up for nights out - tiny bathroom, no mirror in the room itself. I retty much lived in jeans and Ts with no make up and nothing done to my hair. Also quite noisy but only to be expected in the red light district.

Liked: It is literally in the red light district! Very central! It is located inside a bar so it's nice to not even have to go outside to get a drink! We stayed in an 8 bed dorm and it was great!! The bathroom facilities were really great! A shower in a seperate room to the wc and a sink outside next to it, was very handy for so many people! There is a fantastic chocolate shop next door too!!

Disliked: Our first night there we got some ass hat serving at the bar to successfully annoy the SHIT out of us. He was honestly such a stupid jerk I was thinnking about the horrible things I'd write on here about him but the rest of our stay his manager was a total sweetie and got us free drinks cause we were staying for so long!

Liked: I wish every hostel was like this. The service of the staff is brilliant, especially Clem. The rooms are extremely clean, with fresh towels given daily. The continental breakfast is fantastic. If you are looking for a hearty meal then have dinners at the bar. They well sized, and great value. Finally the location of this hostel central, you can easily access everything you need in Amsterdam from it.

Disliked: Nothing at all.

Liked: The atmosphere is really great, rooms were great too and the daily change of towels and soaps was a good bonus.

Disliked: The 1am "curfew" wasn't always good, most people in the hostel are young and it doesn't help you can't bring a friend in the middle of the night who isn't a guest at the hostel.

Liked: The hostel is linked up to the bar next door which makes for a good social environment and the food at the bar is both cheap and as good as any I had in Amsterdam.

Disliked: The rooms were incredibly cramped and got quite stuffy and warm. Overall I would say this hostel is extremely overpriced considering what it offers. There is no kitchen and no common room other than the bar which is also open to the public daily. The bar closes somewhere between 12-1am which means that if you are in the hostel after these hours you are confined to your room.
