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.

Liked: The location was ok, still not in close walking distance to the centre. Staff were pleasant.

Disliked: Rooms were SO small! Stayed in a room of 6 there was no where to put bags and it felt like we were all sleeping on top of each other it was that small. Bunk beds are tiny, can't sit up on the bottom and if you are on the top it is likely you will fall off unless you don't move as there are no sides! Walls were disgustingly dirty, toilets were dirty, one shower for a floor of around 50 people! One of the cheaper hosts in Amsterdam, but it should be a lot cheaper for what you get.

Liked: The place was really clean, friendly and right next to a couple of different tram routes. Supermarket to the rear of the place that is open early and late and another shop down the road open even later. I really enjoyed staying here and met some really love people.

Disliked: The stairs were a nightmare upon arrival but you get used to them, we were only on the 1st floor so it wasn't the end of the world. I would like to mention though the fact that we had 2 rooms and half way through the stay the boys in the other room were told they had to move rooms to accommodate some other guests who were arriving the next day. They had to leave their room by 12pm and weren't given another until 3pm. This was a bit of a hassle. I also overheard another guest complaining that when they went into their room all their stuff was gone and someone else's stuff was in there... I didn't find out whether it was resolved but I wouldn't of enjoyed my stay as much if that had happened to us!

Liked: Günstiges Hostel.Tram hält direkt vor der Unterkunft.

Disliked: Ich buchte 2 Plätze in einem 6-Bettzimmer, bekam jedoch bei Ankunft ein 8-Bettzimmer. Die Sachen der "Mitbewohner" waren überall im Zimmer verteilt. Sehr unordentlich. Mein Bettlaken war von langen Haaren überhäuft & relativ schmutzig.Zimmer direkt an der Straßenseite --> die ganze Nacht über Lärm von dort.Die Türen knarrten wie in einem schlechten Horrorfilm.
