Liked: The Van Gogh theme was nice, and the room was small but nicely decorated and very clean.

Disliked: There was usually a long line at the front desk. Also, the hotel and hostel share a lobby, which was perfectly fine for us, but might bother some.

Liked: Easy to get to centre of town on a tram, but nice and far away from noise for sleeping! Beautifully clean and tidy! Really comfy beds and bedding! Friendly staff (some people complained about staff, but if you were polite to them they were polite back! I saw others treating them rudely so no surprise if they were rude back!) Really appreciated that when we needed a lie in in the morning the cleaner cleaned around us quietly and was very respectful

Disliked: Nothing really- only minor problem was that my friends safe wouldn't work, but we shared, and I'm sure if we had bothered to ask it would've been fixed by the lovely staff! Oh and no fault of the hostel, but mixed rooms inevitably have snorers!

Liked: I loved how we had our own bathroom to our room. You had to pay for breakfast but it was worth it- it was much better than your typical hostel breakfast. Towels were provided every day, and beds made every day. It felt more like a hotel in which you shared your room with others in. Highly recommended.

Disliked: Not enough garbage bins in the rooms, only a very small one in the bathroom.

Liked: The perfect location as it is away from the Red Light District, which is only a short walk away for those wanting to visit a "Coffee Shop". Close to all attractions and even the gay district. Clean fresh crisp sheets and even body wash in the bathroom for all guests to use. As always travel with ear plugs and an eye mask.

Disliked: Staff at reception very plain, slightly healpful.

Liked: it looked very nice inside, like a hotel. very nice bathroom. security lockers in the room. breakfast (5e) was very good but it should have been included in the quite expensive price of the stay.

Disliked: the elevator. the staff could have been nicer. it was a very expensive hostel.
