Liked: The rooms are very modern and clean. I stayed in a 6 bunk room and it was more like a hotel than a hostel. The personal reading light was great.

Disliked: There is no refrigerator or kitchen which would have been helpful.

Liked: The room I stayed in was perfect, save for the fact that the window was faulty and couldn't stay shut.

Disliked: Could perhaps do with better directions to the hostel. It took me some time to look for the hostel after I alighted from the bus at the Van Gogh Museum station. But as soon as I found it, it was easy to get from the bus-stop to the hostel.

Liked: The room was every thing needed, comfortable, clean, warm and modern. The breakfast was great value for money, and it was great to have some where to stow my case while sight seeing the next day. The location was very convenient to the main centre of Amsterdam.

Disliked: The only thing I can think of is that the bathroom sink did not drain

Liked: Hostel Van Gogh is great! The room and bathroom were very clean, and the beds comfortable. The breakfast (5 euros) is good as well.

Disliked: It isn't in the city center, but it's not too far of a walk and there is transportation nearby that takes you anywhere you might want to go in the city.

Liked: The rooms were so new and clean, and the toilet was much better than what I've seen at other hostels. Area seems safe as well, and near the museums, big supermarket and Heineken brewery. Just a tram-ride away from the city center. Excellent for what we paid!

Disliked: Nothing much really.

27 November 2011 Benjamin would recommend this property

Liked: Presented like a hotel, ie helpful staff and nicely turned out. Shower was really powerful and always hot. Really good safes for valuables, ours was broken at first but was fixed fast. Really close to a supermarket for cheap food. Free linen and towel fresh everyday was great and they provide soap for free too.

Disliked: Almost no social interaction between guests, probably due to the rarely used common area and no self catering facilities. So if you're traveling alone and want to meet people this isn't ideal. And it's opposite a nursery which meant I was woken up by screaming kids. It is very good in terms of cleanliness and quality of service but just lacks some heart.
