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

Liked: It was incredibly clean and modern. The rooms were lovely, with large flat screen tvs, comfy beds, large and modern shower, and a personal safe for each guest. There was also some great little touches like a full length mirror and coat hooks. It made it feel more like a hotel than a hostel. The staff were friendly and helpful, we had to change rooms (a problem with other guests, not the hostel) and it was sorted out really easily and quickly. The 5 euro breakfasts were really delicious with a massive variety of food (breads, fruits, meats, cheese, spreads, various juices and hot drinks) and was always restocked and plenty of food. The internet was free too!

Disliked: There was one shared bathroom in each room, with up to 8 people sharing it. Didn't think this was enough, but didnt have any problems during my stay. Althought the internet was free, there were only 2 computers.

Liked: It was clean, modern, and things seemed new - safes in the room with secure locks, bedside lights and powerpoints, comfortable beds, fresh towels every day, amazing en-suite bathroom especially considering it is supposed to be a youth hostel! Overall very impressed, and the location was good, about five or ten minutes away from the centre on the tram, and half an hour's walk.

Disliked: The only thing that was a bit of a letdown was that we were unable to use the oven/stove for cooking our own meals. However the eating area was really well set up so it's not a huge complaint really.

Liked: Good to have a safety deposit box wide enough for a 15'' laptop in the room to store valuables. The hostel was clean and had very nice facilities. Right across the street from the van Gogh museum and Museum of Modern Art. Free wi-fi available in addition to free use of two computers in the lobby.

Disliked: It is outside the busy part of the city, so if you want to be in the action, chose a different hostel. However, it was an easy and pleasant walk (15-20 min) to city center, so I really didn't consider this a problem ever.

Liked: Good location

Disliked: Firstly, it is a HOTEL not a hostel. There was no atmosphere and meeting fellow travelers was very difficult. The luggage room was ridiculously crowded, so crowded that you couldnt open the door to get in. Bags piled up to my stomach!! The 'kitchen' was not a kitchen! You had access to a fridge, microwave and sink. No hotplate/stove for cooking. Also my friend got bed bugs on the second night there. The manager was not willing to help or even accept that it was from his hotel. We had to make them change the sheets, after they did not we had to insist we change beds. Not very happy!

Liked: They've just been renovated so everything's new. My friends and I stayed in a ensuite room and the bathroom's just like the one in a hotel. They even got a TV in the room!

Disliked: About the hostel, nothing really. But bad room mates can turn a 5 star hostel into a nightmare.
