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.

Liked: Easy to get to all parts of the city by tram stop 10m from the front door. Had a dorm with spotless bathroom ensuit, and beds were nice and firm! Showers always hot . Makes for a nice walk back from the coffe shops and while you strolling back stop in to see the museum

Disliked: Nothing to dislike, I will stay again

Liked: Everything is so so. Don't expect much from this hostel

Disliked: Even though it is a non-smoke hostel, people do smoke a lot in front of the reception counter, and you can even smell that when you're up to the stairs. Really uncomfortable atmostphere. If you don't smoke, stay away from this hostel

Liked: It's a very nice place to stay. I would totally recommend, especially for those who are on a budget trip. Some would say it's far from the center, but it is not that far, easy to access the main sights in the city.

Disliked: Could be a little cheaper yet.

Liked: Rooms, toilets, sheets and beds are clean

Disliked: They made us change our rooms due to lack of organization, we payed for rooms with 6 beds but we stayed in the room with 8 beds. Wi-fi was not working properly. Stairs were dangerous, entire building is like a maze. Hostel is very far from the center. Plugs in the room are not enough and placed in the entrance of the room. Staff was unfriendly. There was a lack of communication between them. Don't stay there, pay more and find somewhere better.

Liked: Transport to the city centre or anywhere else in the town is fairly easy from the hostel. The facilities and services were good value for money for the price we were paying. Furthermore, the staff were very friendly and they helped us with almost every questions we had. One of the staff members Redouan made our stay even more pleasant by making good recommendations and always managing the place well to suit most people's needs. He also went our of his way to ensure that we knew our way around and travelled safely. The hostel is well maintained and for the price you pay it's worth those few pennies.

Disliked: Not much apart from the slightly long flight of stairs at the entrance.

Liked: The rooms and WC were clean. There was a sink, mirror and shower in the room. There are also lockers in the room. In the lobby there are tables, chairs for eating or just hanging out and two computers for internet.There are also fast food, supermarket and other stores within 300 meters. The location is a bit far, 12 stops(25min) with tram #9 from central station. Tickets are 2,70 for 1 hour or 7,20 for 24-hr. Other then that, Its the best hostel for the money i have been to in all of amsterdam.

Disliked: No wifi in the room. only 3 electrical socket in the room and all 3 were by the entrance.

Liked: Clean and friendly. Although it states "for under 40s" and I am in my 60s, if you can cope with the stairs it's a good place to stay. Ask first is best policy.

Disliked: Although they don't have a Kitchen you can share the fridge.

Liked: The place was very clean and you had your own locker within your room. Each floor has its own shared bathroom and shower room, which were also generally clean. The tram is super close and they do give you a number of discounts from a bunch of attractions, but I think those are generally given to tourists anyway.

Disliked: The communication between the staff itself was poor. We had two bookings in a row because one of our friends left early and when changing rooms there was some confusion about the deposits because their system wasn't exactly state of the art,
