Liked: As a solo traveler, my single room (not easy to find at hotels) was perfect. It was clean, comfortable, well organized, and had everything I needed. The staff was all-business and definitely wasn't there to serve as a concierge, but when I needed something (like when the room next door was being too loud), they took care of it immediately. Also, breakfast is a bargain at 5 euros - there is a ton to choose from!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The room and bathroom are clean. It is located conveniently for the museums. The area is safe and quiet. If you want good sleep this is a good place to be as it is more like a hotel with no communal room.

Disliked: No lockers, just a safe but should be large enough to fit 14 inch laptop. Also the lift is very slow and broke down one night. Also would be nice to add some hooks in the bathroom!

Liked: It was very convenient, with Rijksmuseum and Van Gogh Museum right across the street. I liked the simple, classy interior, it felt more like a hotel than a hostel as your room is daily cleaned.

Disliked: The wifi was very weak, I couldn't load any images. The staff weren't very friendly and did not smile or offer help. They weren't attentive and were often doing their own stuff without manning the counter.

Liked: We stayed in both the dorms and a private room. the doors are snug, like most are, but super comfortable beds, lock boxes, and a bathroom with shower. The private rooms are fantastic too. Clean, huge windows, full bathroom. Staff are amazingly helpful and welcoming. The breakfast is more than I had imaged and delicious. Location is right close to a super market and a park so if you are into bread and cheese in the park it is perfectly located. Trams and buses are right out the door. We choose to walk into the centre and it took about 20 min, if you didn't get too distracted along the way. We highly recommend this place.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: Would 100% recommend this hostel to anyone going to Amsterdam. It's about 20-30 mins away from the very centre of the city but still a great location right in the museum district. It's also nice in that you get to see more of the city and it's in a really gorgeous and quiet area. The staff were SO helpful and accommodating. I had actually booked our room for the wrong date but the woman at the front desk changed it with absolutely no problems or extra fees. She was also extremely helpful with organising a canal cruise and very friendly and polite. The hotel itself is very clean, safe and nicely designed. The 5 euro buffet breakfast is also extremely good value for money and has a wide range of food. I was very impressed with my stay!

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: For our stay the property was well located, with easy access to airport and the city with excellent transport links on it doorstep. Although centrally located with the park at it side it had an open feel to it. Even although the property was full the staff made time to talk to you and resolve any queries or questions you had

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.
