Liked: Closest we could get to city on easter weekend, fun atmosphere, lots of food and drink to buy onsite.

Disliked: Stairs are killer, be warned if you have lots of bags. Toilets are so small that when you sit down your knees hit the door. Room also had less number of lockers than beds so I didn't get one.

Liked: Very clean, front desk employee was very friendly and helpful. We got a free map. Don't pay for the one at the tourist office. Free wiifii. Sink in the room. Common room where you can talk to people in your free time. Possible to print boarding passes and bus tickets. Overall a great place.

Disliked: It was a little far from the city center but the tram stop was directly in front of the hostel so it was very easy to take tram #9 into the city center and the bus 357 during the night. It passed pretty regularly. Also, maybe don't arrive drunk the first time you get there cause there are VERY steep stairs to walk up to get to the lobby.

Liked: Front desk is nice in person and through email, there are security cameras, rooms and beds and sheet/blanket/pillow are clean, not too noisy and guests are pretty considerate to each other in the mornings/nights, close to dappermarkt and acceptably walkable to the center (although it's a very long walk..), there weren't anybody hanging around the entrances/stairs watching you climb up or smoking haha

Disliked: location is not so good, hostel is hard to see at first glance since there's just a staircase that leads up to it and the sign says amigo hotel (as opposed to hostel). yes, the staircase is very steep, but just be careful when going up/down. steep stairs might not just be unique to this hostel tho. for a budget hostel, it's still not that cheap :\\ they take a 10 EUR key deposit and i don't think i saw that they would take this on hostelbookers.com or their website.
