Liked: Central location, near to museums.

Disliked: Kitchen was limited, crockery, but only a microwave, which was really dirty looking. Breakfast was just toast and tea or coffee. The vibe was strange, not particularly sociable and a little uncomfortable for me as a solo traveller. This was probably because I wasn't there for the coffee shops either.

Liked: This is my second time here it is a great place to relax for a couple days, you have a lovely park direct in front of the door and it only takes 12.3156 min ;) into city center. Plus free Wifi, breakfast and always hot water in the showers. Staff has been very friendly & helpful, I would stay here anytime again.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: This place was suitable. Clean enough, although private bathrooms in the room might sound nice...you can hear everything through the bathroom wall. Breakfast included white toast...just toast. But there was jam, butter, fake Nutella and peanut butter! The showers were hot and the wifi worked great.

Disliked: A bit of a ways walk from everything central. About a 15 minute walk from Dam central plaza. Not a very interactive, socialable hostel.

Liked: Really nice place to stay. One of the cheapest options available in Amsterdam, and in a really good neighborhood. Food, drinks and coffee shops are a lot cheaper than the center (which is about 15-20 minutes walk away). Staff were really nice, there was a private bathroom (which I didn't expect) and the balcony outside has nice views.

Disliked: There is no food/drinks/smoking in the rooms (which is understandable, but it IS Amsterdam), but that's not so bad, because it's alright in the kitchen/varanda.

20 September 2012 Brett would recommend this property

Liked: The beds were pretty comfortable, and the internet worked great. There is a really nice park right next to the hostel, and the location is far enough away from the city center that it's quiet at night. However, it's not too far away to make walking a hassle.

Disliked: The bathroom was not very well cleaned, and if someone used the shower it would get the entire room wet because the toilet and shower were in the same area. This place is good for a brief weekend stay when you do not plan to spend much time in the hostel. If you plan on making your stay longer then I would recommend finding a nicer place.
