Liked: WIFI!! As well as computers in the main entrance to use. Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. It was nice that there was a lift, as my luggage got quite heavy during this part of my trip. The breakfast for 5 euros was quite substantial. The rooms were nice and spacious. The rooms have safes for each individual.

Disliked: The location was not that easy to find at night since the Van Gogh museum is not illuminated. The atmosphere is more of a hotel than a hostel as no one really hangs around the lounge. No food on site except for candy..

Liked: Clean, well organised hostel. I stayed in an 8 bed dorm and I was more than happy with my stay.

Disliked: No kitchen to prepare your own food, only real downside, but I knew this before booking, so I am not disgruntled or anything.

Liked: It's very conveniently located. Close to tram stops / museums and very easy to spot. The quality of the room is very good too. Breakfast was good too. Extra 5 euro's but if you are traveling it's good to start the day with breakfast so you kill one thing already. I found it very safe and conveniently located. I stayed here for 6 nights and would strongly recommend this hostel to anyone ...

Disliked: the hostel staff can be a bit more polite. Especially the staff at reception. Their responses are very direct and not explanatory. Other than that ... I thought this was a great place to stay.

Liked: The facilities are modern and clean.

Disliked: The rooms are small. The location in the museum disctrict is ok, but next time I would prefer a hostel which is really in the city. The staff is not particulary helpful, the induction was a one minute task.

Liked: Everything really. Its clean, cool, chilled and interesting. The rooms are big and the beds are comfortable and clean. The bathrooms are also big and modern, the shower ise huge and you get a towel which you can exchange whenever you need. Safe in room works perfect. They have a Microwave, free tea and little fridges. They are near to a supermarket so you can buy microwaved food to save cash. They will keep your luggage if you check in early or if your plane/train/bus is leaving late on checkout day. Amazing place overall.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The rooms are really swank. Very comfortable beds. The private double room has an awesome balcony.

Disliked: Although the bed was very comfortable, it was two smaller beds pushed together. The 'crack' made snuggling and love making a little awkward. But we made it work ;)
