Liked: Location, beds are super comfy, bathrooms are nice (like really good shower pressure is important), so clean, really safe, all taxi drivers know about it and how to get there, amazon health store just next door, great breakfast, good wifi....

Disliked: The staff weren't overly excited about people and kind of made you feel like it was an effort to help you.

Liked: The facilities are very good (modern bathroom, safe, air condition, TV, daily housekeeping ...). It's very easy to reach any major attraction in Amsterdam from the hostel - either by walking or going by tram. In addition, the hostel is located in a very quiet side street so that getting sleep is easily possible.

Disliked: Overall, the staff at the reception was friendly, except for the manager who didn't let me feel being welcome in his house. In the rooms, there could be a few more facilities to hang / dry wet towels.

Liked: We stayed in a private room. The beds were comfortable, and linen was clean.There were facilities fair tea and coffee and breakfast was available if you wanted it (at additional cost).Very modern decor in the rooms and throughout the hostel. A secure luggage room was available which was perfect as we arrived early and left late which was perfect for is to use. The location is lovely. Not many restaurants but the livelier parts of town are within close range. The big museums were a stones throw away. I would recommend this lovely property.

Disliked: The air conditioning in the room wasn't fantastic, the room could get really hot and the air con didn't seem powerful enough to cool down the whole room. I think air conditioning can be like that however so wouldn't place the blame on the hostel.We were given very small towels (almost tea towel size) one morning. Only that a friend caught the cleaner on the way out one day we got some larger ones.The major problem we all had was with one member of staff (not a reflection on the rest who were lovely and did everything they could to accommodate us). He acted like he didn't want to be there. Ignored us at the desk and was rude when spoken to. On one occasion we rang as we needed to locate our friend who was arriving late, he was rude on both phone calls and denied that she was there and it turned out she was standing right there waiting for us. He was dismissive and uphelpful. Aside from that we saw four or five other staff members who were lovely and treated us very well.

Liked: Stayed in this hostel twice now and enjoyed it both times. Very clean and comfortable facilities. This hostel is more like a converted hotel so if you're looking for a 'hostel' vibe, this may not be the place. Located in Museum Quarter- very close to museums, trams, shopping, IamAmsterdam, cafes. Easy walking distance to Vondel Park + Bike or Tram distance to Dam Square, red light district, and Central Station. Lots of cooked and continental options for breakfast- good value for 5euro.

Liked: Felt more like a hotel then a hostel. The location was very good, less then 5min walk to both Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum.

Disliked: The walls are a bit thin, it gets a bit noisy if there are a lot of people inside the rooms.
