Liked: Hostel is close to central station which is good considering I was travelling alone.

Disliked: I booked a bed in a female dorm which turned out to be just above the hostel bar. Very noisy all night, I could hardly get to sleep, music was so loud and people screaming just outside the bar, defo not recommended if you're not into partying!

Liked: Great location, phenomenal breakfast with fruit, eggs, fresh bread, cereal, yogurt, meats, cheese. Clean, safe, private bathroom.

Disliked: Location was great but because of the main floor bar and its location on the edge of the red light district it stayed very noisy outside late into the night and closing our windows didn't block out the noise very well. Also didn't have a kitchen, free lockers, or free computer access. Would have been nice to have a common area in the lobby that was not a bar/restauraunt open to the public as it was always busy/noisy there.... It all depends what kind of atmosphere you're looking for!

Liked: The hostel is in the red light district. If you want to party and smoke, the hostel is located right in the center of all the action. It's also a good place to meet other travelers. The atmosphere is young so be prepared to be surrounded by a surrounded by this crowd. The rooms are up to date and very clean.

Disliked: The room wasextremely joy during the night. With eight people, the room can get a bit stuffy.

Liked: Nice bar on the ground floor, with good drinks and meals for a good price for Amsterdam. The staff was helpfull, but nothing special. The beds are made and the towels changed every day. Right in the heart of the Red Light District and a walkable distance to the Centraal Station.

Disliked: The room initially smelled of urine from the bathroom, although it was really clean, don´t know from where it came. The bar on the ground floor is a good thing, but you HAVE TO go through to get to the dorms, it can be annoying when you get late and tired. You can clearly hear the noise of the streets from the dorms.
