Liked: I have been to Amsterdam before and booked at this hostel because of the location - it's right opposite the Van Gogh Museum and a stone's throw away from the Rijksmuseum. That said if you're coming to Amsterdam for the red light district or for the city centre in general, this may not be the ideal location for you. There are however excellent transport links to everything - tram to Amsterdam Centraal, bus to Schiphol, etc. The property was extremely clean and the furnishings are new and of good quality, so it is essentially like sharing a good hotel room with other people. As described, the room had its own private bathroom with large shower and shower gel etc provided. And each bed has its own reading light and electronic socket. Oh and the internet was very good. The room is ventilated so although it was a bit warm on some of the nights, the room remains cool.

Disliked: The only real thing I thought was bad was the staff - and this may just be one of the staff members as they were there all three times I interacted with them. They were rude, not helpful and openly glared at times. The other cons are all minor things. The room can be noisy at night because of the ventilation - didn't bother me or the other girls, but I know some have mentioned it before. The kitchen is also not a full kitchen - only fridge, microwave and cutlery.

Liked: It is right in the museum district which is the perfect area to be in. I cannot stress enough how much I loved the area. The staff, for the most part, was helpful with any questions we had. The breakfast for €5 is a pretty good deal as there is a lot to choose from and it includes coffee and juice.

Disliked: Slowest elevator in the history of elevators, but better than not having one at all when you're carrying your bags upstairs.

Liked: The location is really good with easy access to transport and even the airport bus. It's literally right by the Van Gogh Museum and there's a massive supermarket just a minute's walk. The hostel was very clean and well maintained and the beds were quite comfy. The pass-code operated safes in the room were also really good.

Disliked: The atmosphere was a little dull and didn't encourage socializing etc. The staff were also a bit rude and didn't seem like they felt with dealing with queries. And there was a lack of kitched facitilies, although there was a sitting area with a microwave, kettle and tea/coffee-making facilities.

Liked: Clean, well presented. Had a normal hotel feel about it! Nice bathroom..

Disliked: Didn't utilise the hostel fully, as I spent 95% of my time out and about, but if I had to pick something, it was that lift was too slow, and that's all!
