Liked: Really clean, large showers located inside each room. Pretty easy to find. Each bed had a power plug. The hostel, beds, sheets, towels, etc. were super clean.

Disliked: The elevator wasn't working, but they seemed to be fixing it right as we left. Also, the lockers didn't work (or they were really hard to use).

Liked: Great location, really nice rooms (just a well-appointed hotel with more beds), modern facilities. The best hostel I've ever seen. Again, the location could not be better.

Disliked: The staff were harried and the elevator wasn't working. As well, it has the classic Amsterdam stairwells - that is, insanely steep.

Liked: It was near to the Van Gogh museum and Rijksmuseum

Disliked: It was noisy. The walls were so thin you could hear what was happening two floors below. Other guests were taking drugs in the toilets. There were no lockers in the rooms. The front door was open all night but people coming in weren't asked if they were staying in the hotel. The Asian guy on the front desk was very rude and unhelpful (the rest of the staff were fine). The lift doesn't work.
