Liked: I, a solo travelling fremale from Australia, only stayed at Hostel Van Gogh for 2 night and was had a great stay. The hostel was clean and the staff were helpful (the desk was mannwed 24/24 which makes a difference when your card sops working at 2am!). Some other positive points:- Large spacious rooms- Room underneath beds for everyones baggage to fit (despite no lock away areas for big bags) there was still enough space to move around-Small safe for each person to lock away valuables inn each room- Powerpoints and a light for each bed which makes a big difference- Elevator which saved having to lug heavy bags up the narrow staircase- Allowed bags to be left on day of departure for further sightseeing- wifi available in all areas of hostel (including in rooms on top floor)- hot clean shower/bathroom in each room - comfy chairs and large number of tables in large communal areaI did not make use of the optional extra breakfast, but was told it was decent from others staying at the hostel

Disliked: Not too many negatives, just a few notes:- One bathroom in room for 6 people - nice to have private bathroom but would also be nice to have one extra on the floor for communal use, as toilet was also located in bathroom and if someone was in the shower had to walk down to the bottom floor for another toilet (of which there was only 1x toilet - nil extra showers) - A little costly, considering others in the area charge the same (or less) and include breakfast- key stopped working a number of times, requiring resetting (even though did not keep in wallet with credit cards of next to phone)- nil large lock up safe/cage for large bags (but does contain small safe in each room)

Liked: Location is good. Museum is near and close to the tram stop is also easy to move. I feel a little old, but it is relatively clean facilities. Double rooms are expensive, but the hotel is in a very good position.

Disliked: All the staff are very friendly but had a very very unfriendly asian manager. Try to keep the laptop on the counter on the last day, very annoyed and threw a piece of paper and a pen in front of me. And roughly put the laptop on the counter shelf. He said that there is no place to hold the counter, but Shelves were empty inside. I do not understand, Why he angry with me.

Liked: A great location, close to the tram stop. Most of the staff were friendly. Good breakfast available.

Disliked: Some unfriendly staff that just didn't want to help us, one older man in particular just gave us bad directions and information. Really small rooms and no public w/c downstairs
