"the hotel was beautiful, clean and very good value for money. It was close to everything but far enough that you felt you were away from the hustle & bustle. excellent"

Liked: Clean room and clean toilet. Cheap breakfast 5 euros. Near the museums

Disliked: Apart from museums, there is very little in the neighborhood. You need to walk 20 minute ( or take a tram) to the city center.

Liked: It's in a really nice neighbourhood with classic buildings all around. A really nice but affordable bakery around the corner. The rooms are kept really well by the Latvian guy who looked after the rooms, work really hard and did things well. The rooms are warm, so are the showers which go up to 50. The breakfast is a good, cheap, fresh variety. The lockers use a digit code and are really secure. It's not to far from the Heineken experience.

Disliked: It was in a school district so no coffeeshops close by. Plus noise during the morning from screaming kids. Can only use the water during breakfast time.

Liked: I loved there! the location is awsome, just next to a train stop, to the I amsterdam and the Heineken Experience. If you go by foot you get to the city center in 10 minutes, and by train in 3 to 5 minutes! the acomodation is also great! if I go back to amsterdam I will be staying there for sure!

Liked: Loved this hostel. Very close to Leidseplein and an easy walk. Easy to get to from the airport and central station as well. Rooms and bathroom are very nice compared to any I've ever stayed in. Even nicer than some hotels. Breakfast was also good and a good value at 5 euros.

Disliked: Size of the rooms and number of beds. I was in an 8 person room, which for me is just too many people. 8 people to one bathroom can get crowded as well, but I didn't have a problem as everyone was in and out at very different hours.

Liked: Cleanliness was paramount within the hotel, very clean and tidy. Decorated very nicely and air conditioned and thermostat in the room. The shower was amazing, bathroom was the highlight of the room. The pillows were average, a bit lumpy but the room in general was comfortable.

Disliked: Only negative criticism was when we checked out. The receptionist did not even say goodbye, nor did she even bother to make eye contact with us when we said goodbye to her. All she did was outstretch her hand for the keys. Gave off the impression that she was only concerned with the people who were currently there checking in, and paid no attention to us whatsoever. The service fell at the very last hurdle and that was a great shame.

Liked: I stayed in a room with two beds and a private bathroom, so it dint really felt like a hostel. In general the hostel was really good. The bedroom was perfect and the bathroom too. There was breakfast for five euros, and I found it really nice. The location was perfect, near the museums, next to the tram, and in a walking distance of nice restaurants and bars.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great location, near the Museumplein. Breakfast was a good value for money, but there is a supermarket nearby in case you prefer it. Helpful staff. I felt very safe walking in the area at any time of day. There was a safe inside the room. Good bed, good blankets, good en suite bathroom (with blow drier, very useful in winter) and awesome shower. Really awesome.

Disliked: No lockers in the room, but there was a safe.

Liked: Great location as it's located in the museum quarter and fashion district. Easy walking distance to places of interest such as the Heineken Experience and regular tram service to Dam Square (although you could walk). The place was immaculate and the staff were helpful. There's a really friendly cat too!

Disliked: A bit quiet but probably because it was off peak season. Everything else was great.
