Liked: The location was very central to everything and for the most part most sites and places to go are walking distance .

Disliked: It wasn't very clean and definitely needed some reconstruction as it was very outdated and our room and the hallways smelled like mold.

Liked: Location was great (if you like being right in the middle of the Red Light District) All the great bars and coffeshops were all with in a few min walk, with some good restaurants also in the area. But also a great location to start from, if you're going to see the other great sights of Amsterdam: Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, Vondelpark, etc... The hostel itself is very lively with a great bar. Good and safe locker system. Staff is very friendly. Enjoyed the free breakfast.

Disliked: The room we had was clean, but small. Unfortunately, we were given separate beds. Our private bathroom was very clean, but very small. Also, at random times thru-out the night (because of the location) party-goers can be singing loud and being very joyous. We made it work tho, so I'm not complaining. This hostel, all around is an amazing place to stay.

Liked: It's in a good location, but so are the other hostels right next door.

Disliked: There's no common room or kitchen facilities. The staff are not the best, either high or have a very short attitude, but that's what you get at these franchise hostels I guess

Liked: Stayed in 8bed girl dorm and I liked how the 8beds were separated into two rooms with 4beds in each and no bunk beds. Also beds were very comfortable and a cleaner comes into room everyday with fresh towels, cleans bathroom and makes everyone's bed. Also got to have cheap drinks and food at the bar/club downstairs because we were staying at the hostel. I thought I would have trouble sleeping from the noise at the bar, but the girls dorm Gus separate from the hostel and very quiet.

Disliked: Sleezy men hanging around front of hostel.

Liked: Pretty much everything, rooms were very clean and large, people were friendly, the staff was very helpful.

Disliked: The sinks are too small in my opinion but in the end it's an hostel, so we couldn't expect much more. Our room had only two very small windows and every morning there was a bit of foul air. But these were the only problems, so we can say our stay was early perfect.

Liked: Great atmosphere (as to be expected in the hear too the Red Light District). The food is good, and if you feel like a change, there are plenty of restaurant nearby. The wifi works! The dorms are well insulated: you'd never know there was a party going on in the pub next door.

Disliked: Nothing really. The wifi can be a little bit weak sometimes.

Liked: Smack center of the happening part of Amsterdam. Everything is a 10 minute or less than 10 minute walk away. Bar starts kicking at night which is fun if you're too tired to head out - bar crawl also comes through the bar which makes it rather busy for about an hour or so. Not complaining though. Fun staff, really helpful - think that adds alot to the place.

Disliked: Oddly positioned showers in the bathroom - but worked our way around them. The tap in the bathroom broke the day we arrived which was compensated for by a few free drinks and was fixed by early next morning - thought the way it was dealt with was rather impressive. Sure, gets a bit noisy - but because of the bar downstairs but the street that our room overlooked. But then again, didnt pose that much of a problem for me - perhaps if youre a really light sleeper.

Liked: The location close to Centraal is nice. The rooms were clean, and the staff very helpful.

Disliked: The night I was in Amsterdam there was some kind of death metal show going in a club located next door to the entrance to the Winston, and directly under the rooms. Headbanging thudding music continued well past 3 am. It ended before dawn, thankfully.
