Liked: Staff were friendly

Disliked: Our room was crowded and smelled. The locacion, it's very far away from the center, if you go on foot it takes about 40mins to get to the main square. So wherever you go you have to take a bus or tram which is quite expensive. We payed over 30 euros per night and seriously it wasn't worth it.

Liked: It was located directly in front of the tram stop that isJust a 5 minute tram ride to the city center and is an easy walk or quick bike ride to be where the party is. When i walked in ~FAISEL~ was there to help me check in. He told me anything i needed to know and was more than willing to help with any questions i had about where to go and what to do. Also there are a ton of minicards to local attractions and offer all sorts of discounts and free giveaways just for staying at this place. Couldnt have had a better experience. Faisel is my new homeboy.

Disliked: Nothing, these guys were all awesome at all hours of the day and i wish their were more traveler friendly hostels in the area.

Liked: Cheap and a 15 minute tram ride from central station, Amigo is perfect for a budget trip to Amsterdam. The tram stop is very close to the hostel, the staff are friendly, rooms and beds are clean, and there's a common room with free wifi and a couple of PCs to use. I would be amazed to find anything better for cheaper.

Disliked: Our room was pretty hot because the window didn't open very far

Liked: Very helpful staff there was a problem with the room bookings, 5 mins later NO PROBLEM. Fairly spacious rooms, clean toilets, guys there seemed cool and the rules were fair.

Disliked: The stairs in and out killed it, confusing rules regarding them i.e. said dont smoke but people still smoked. Rooms get SO HOT, MILK WAS A BAD CHOICE. Could be long to travel there and back from town but tram was regular so didnt reeally mind. Also was told we could pay sterling but had to pay euros semi longgg.

Liked: I had an awesome experience at Amigo. It's incredibly easy to find, and the staff is great. Rooms are clean and have a minimalistic modern feel. I originally booked one night but then my overnight train for the next night was overbooked, so I came back to this hostel to see if I could stay here again. Faisel at the front desk was so accomodating and kind. I highly recommend this hostel.

Disliked: Celine left no negative feedback.

Liked: Overall good hostel. The staff is friendly and helpful. The only downside is that the hostel is located so far from the center of the city, but the tram stops right in front of it so you can get around fairly easily. Zaka is a cool guy.

Disliked: Nothing really.

Liked: The staff are young guys, they are very helpful and nice. The hostel is near a few trams and buses and near a bigger station. There a few bars, restaurants shops (supermarket as well) around the hostel. There is free WiFi. There is a possibility to eat you own food (bread etc.). You can rend a locker in your room.

Disliked: There are a lot of rooms, but there are to little toilets and showers, The showers and toilets are way to small! There is no way you can take your towel and your clothes with you into the shower, I had to leave mine outside and sneaky re-opened the door again and grab my stuff, one my one. Its felt like a small closet, the toilet as well (my knees almost touched the door). Also In the morning you have to wait, there are way to little showers and toilets. There is no elevator, it is possible that you have walk three steep stairs (I did). In the room of 8 (403), there are not enough curtains, so in summer you always wake up early or cannot sleep when you went out in the city. The location is kind off out off the city center. There is not a possibility to cook or to store a lot of food in a fridge.

Liked: there r simple clean rooms. it`s not far from the center. the staff is really helpful and there`s free internet. the shops around r not expensive and this is really important in amsterdam.

Disliked: the bathroom was not that clean, too many people for sharing one shower. it`s good that there r a lot of rooms, but too many to meet people from other rooms.

Liked: Room was not bad and bed fine.

Disliked: Location is OK but not if you're only here for a few days because you will have to spend money on trams. Worst thing though is the lack of decent common area. It's a big place with a tiny reception area. It wasn't the worst and fine if you're in a bind, but I would not choose to stay unless I had to. FAR BETTER than heart of amsterdam though! That place was RUBBISH!
