Liked: Though not the most central of hostels this one is very comfortable and has very easy links to the centre, a perfect place for those who might enjoy to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city centre. The kitchen is very well stocked and staff are very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Only plastic cutlery in the guest kitchen was a little annoying. The atmosphere is definitely that of a hotel not a hostel.

Liked: Superbly clean, new facilities, very helpful and friendly staff. Good value.

Disliked: Some guests are locals/immigrants using the hostel as cheaper alternative to a flat in AMS. We had such a strange element in our dorm - just waking everybody with constant watching TV and shoring the whole night. Its def not a party place, very hotel-like, if you get a single/dbl room you'll def like it.
