Jeffrey Amori thinks…

"Quite possibly the best hostel I've ever stayed in. The location is fantastic. It is located in the Museumplein, right across from the Van Gogh Museum. It is close enough to the city center to walk,…"

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: The beds and pillows were very comfortable and fresh towels were provided each day. The bathroom was cleaned everyday. The location is very good - 1 minute walk to local trams and within walking distance to a number of museums and other attractions. The breakfast provided is well worth the 5 Euros.

Disliked: The only common area is the eating area which makes it more like a hotel than hostel and the only bathrooms available is the one in your room. Staff are not very friendly or helpful
