Liked: The hotel is not very close to the center, but has a station nearby and is very easy to get around. The people are very nice and are prepared to deal with young people; give all the information and help. It's a very good hotel according to price, and if it were to Amsterdam again, I'd be there.

Disliked: The stairs.

Liked: Very clean and tidy hostel. Clean shower room and toilet. With facilities for luggage storage. Lobby area for wi-fi access and eating (but a bit small and cramped) Very friendly staff. Close to local shops, supermarket, bakery and launderette. Lockers within in rooms to keep valuables safe and secure (bring own padlock)

Disliked: Location is a bit far from city centre. But easy to get to by tram (15 minutes) Very steep staircase up to the main door. Not suitable for those with many or heavy luggage. Staircase is often blocked by fellow travellers smoking, which is unpleasant.

Liked: The proprieter is more than happy to help accomodate you!

Disliked: It does cost 2.80 everytime you want a rail pass to get into city center, you could save a bit and walk it like I did but this time of the year it gets bitterly cold. The location is a bit removed from city center, but you could just buy a day pass and then no problem.

From what I hear/understand, its difficult to find a good clean hostel in Amsterdam, and everywhere is relatively expensive. but Amigo Hostel, is quite cheap, very clean, safe, and fun, and also in a really convenient location, 10 min walk from Eurolines Bus Station. highly recommend this place

Disliked: Stairs.

Liked: Cheap, perfect for travellers who are just looking for a place to sleep, easy to find and get to from the train station, showers were pretty good, tram stop right outside, cute will bakery opposite!

Disliked: VERY steep stairs which can be pretty hard to get up and down if you've spent the evening in a coffeeshop! But this is the same for many properties in Amsterdam. There is no kitchen available to guests which is a bit of a pain if you like to budget on food.

Liked: i couldnt believe how modern and clean the rooms were. great shower and bathroom and the room was so clean. Free internet . i liked the location as it was in walking distance of all the attractions but also the tram was outside the hotel for easy quick access in and around the city centre. we got the train from the airport straight to the hotel which was handy.

Liked: The facilities were clean, nice rooms, good wifi and free lockers. Had a great time, honestly the best hostel I stayed in in my trip and felt more like a 2-3 star hotel then a hostel. If I go back to Amsterdam I'm staying there again. Wonderful time.

Disliked: Pachel have no dislike about the Amigo hostel.

Liked: I honestly really liked the property. After reading a lot of bad descriptions and reviews about it, I decided to try it for myself. Staff were friendly, the non-smoking rule was upheld religiously. They also had lovely sweets on offer that you could take if you stayed too long in a coffeeshop and needed to sober up.

Disliked: Nothing really, the rooms were small, but as is the traditional dutch style, so I didn't see anything wrong with that.

Liked: This is in a good street. The supermarket and other shops are a complete compensation to the lack of full service, i.e. breakfast in the hostel. The tram No. 9 is one of the most useful as it over stops the No.3 to the Ryjks museum.

Disliked: The floors are painfully elastic, which is an architectural mystery ? Perhaps the walls are quake-proof. ? If you have a heavy suitcase like mine you become very grateful for the assistance that is readily availed from staff and other guests equally willing to face the difficulty of the very precipice which confronts you when you arrive on the front steps of "la Maison".

Liked: Great value for money, we paid 30 euro for a triple room, decent location, around half an hour walk from the city center, u can leave ur luggage after u check-out (however anyone can access the room so it's ur responsibility), staff was very friendly, they offered us free maps of the city and recommended some places to see, theres wifi and sockets in the room and its very warm inside (especially useful in winter)

Disliked: In the evening people smoked weed at the reception (that happened to be very close to our room) and u could smell it in the room, was also quite noisy even after midnight even when the door was closed, theres really no entrance door to the hostel so the temperature at the corridor pretty much equals the one outside, quite inconvenient if u dont have en suite bathroom (and i guess all the rooms in this hostel have shared bathroom). Linen was somewhat dirty as well as the bathroom and there was really nothing except beds in the room.
