"Pretty easy to find, the staff was really helpful and the bar was very good and with discounts for people staying at the hostel. It was also very cheap."

Liked: the bar at the hostel played good music and had a nice atmosphere. it is also possible to sit outside. The location is good and you can reach the most important sights by foot. nevertheless it is in the redlight district. so if you don't like to see sadomaso stores, or girls in display windows you should stay away from this place.

Disliked: the problems with the staff started even before we arrived in Amsterdam. our group booking was cancelled and after a few mails we were able to stay there anyway. arrived there we wanted to check in, but the blondie at the reception told me, that we can only stay for 2 nights, even though I had booked for 3. when I showed them my confirmation for 3 nights, they told us to go to the city again and come back later, so that they could discuss the matter. a few hours later they told us that we can stay there, but not in the rooms we have booked. after some more discussions we were able to stay in the rooms we've had a confirmation for with the exception of the girls who had to change the room after 2 nights. when they wanted checkout and change the room, the have been informed, that they can go back in ther old room again. Furthermore it wasn't possible to pay separately and when we asked them to calculate the price per person, the staff wasn't able to do that properly, so we had to do it by ourselves. long story short: avoid this hostel if you're traveling with more than 2 persons because the staff isn't able to cope with those situations.

Liked: Good location, right in the heart of the red light district. Night club right beside the hostel was always quite busy so you don't have to go far to party. Lot's of good food nearby and only a short walk from the Centraal station.

Disliked: If you're not into partying and worried about getting sleep this place might not be for you, it can be pretty loud on the streets all night long.

Liked: This hostel was great! Awesome location and atmosphere (there is a bar downstairs that is always full of people, and they also have a club next door). I'd also love to give a great review of the blonde reception guy that works there (for the life of me I can't remember your name - sorry!). He CARRIED my friend up to level 3 after she was passing out from a massive night in Amsterdam - many thanks! If it weren't for him I probably would have had to slip her under a table and come back downstairs for her in the morning ;)

Liked: I liked that the property was close to the city centre and transport.

Disliked: The property was just a bar and a few dormitory rooms. There wasn't a place where guests could sit and relax away from the bar. There was also no kitchen or laundry facilities although there is a laundromat close by.

Liked: The bar is great, but not private so can feel a bit like any other bar in the city. It's not a great bar for meeting other travellers. That said, the food is great and there are deals on meals and beer. Dinner for two and two beers for 20€ can't be beaten. The breakfast is good and free. They also have a smoking section with a pool table. The rooms are really stylish and spotlessly clean. Unlike other hostels I've stayed in, the room is cleaned daily with fresh towels and the bed made. The location is brilliant too, right in the centre of the RLD and 2 minutes from Dam square. The staff are also super friendly and happy.

Disliked: The bar felt impersonal. The beds were a bit creaky and the pillow is odd, more like a cushion. The hostel is also really noisy from the nearby church bells and street noise, but reception provide free ear plugs. My room was at the back overlooking a window alley though, so noise can't be helped.
