Connor Ford thinks…

"Comfy bed and ensuite bathroom with shower in dorms. Good breakfast with bacon. Luggage room was easy enough and free. There are lockers in the room so valuables can be really secured."

Liked: Muito bom e bem localizado, com fácil acesso a ônibus e trem. Fiquei no quarto 312, somente mulheres. Tudo bem limpo e organizado. O café da manhã - a parte - é OK, mas sinceramente vale a pena ir a um café e curtir as opções que esta cidade oferece. O acesso aos quartos é seguro, pois somente com o cartão é possível liberar. Todo o staff é muito educados, mas não espere a simpatia de um oriental que atende de manhã... Me esqueci o nome de uma mulher (também oriental) que atende a tarde e a noite...ela é muito boa gente. Não espere agitação típica de hostel, mas a tranqüilidade de um hotel... o que me agradou. Bem, vale muito a pena e voltaria a me hospedar.

Liked: This was the second time I have stayed here. It is a little bit out of the Amsterdam Center but it still within walking distance and about a 30 second walk to regular tram stop. The surrounding area is lovely. Quiet but modern and clean. The actual hostel is great, simple but stylish. One of the best hostels I've stayed in. There are places to store you bags before and after check in and the staff are welcoming.

Liked: Great hostel; well it's actually a hotel with some of the rooms having extra beds, so the vibe is definitely more that of a hotel than a hostel. Even so there is a nice area where breakfast is served where you can sit in the evening and chat with friends. The place is very clean, modern and it was a pleasure staying here. There are safes in the room which are provided for free which is an excellent touch.

Liked: This is a great, safe location (30 mins walk or tram ride to Dam Sq but right by the major museums) and the 6 person girls dorms had modern, clean facilities just like a hotel, with actual electronic safes as well as a clean, modern ensuite bathroom. Did not try the breakfast, not sure if it's worth 5 euros. I think this is great value for Amsterdam city center.

Disliked: The bunk beds were all squeezed together with no space inbetween.

Liked: The rooms looked like an upscale hotel (jsut with bunk beds), the bathrooms were very nice and clean, and the beds were comfortable. I was very happy to see electronic safes for each person in the rooms to avoid the hassle of a lock, and access cards to each room to avoid unwanted prowlers. It made me feel very safe, indeed,

Disliked: The only thing that keeps this hostel from havign a great rating was that during breakfast (a pretty good selection) is that the juice dispenser evidently had flies on the nozzles, such that my juice was filled with them. I pointed it out to the manager, and instead of giving me my 5 euro back, he suggested I get another cup of juice. Points down for helpfulness and cleanliness, though the room itself was great!

Liked: Great hostel, almost to the standard as a hotel. Very clean and tidy through out, fresh bedding and towels provided daily if required. My only disappointment was a member of the reception staff, we weren't greeted well however this could be overlooked. The Van Gogh museum can be seen from the front door and the tram stop is 2 minutes round the corning. Perfect location. I would stay here again!

Liked: Free wifi, very central location close to many tourist attractions.

Disliked: There was a problem with my room and the staff was less than nice about addressing it. They acted like I was asking for special treatment because they mistakenly booked 6 people to a room with 4 beds and they also forgot that my reservation was for a female-only room.
