Liked: It was very close to public transport services. It was also very close to the main city as well as the airport. It had a friendly atmosphere. The bar was great for meeting new people. There were many things to do like drink, play pool and chat. There was helpful guides about local attractions. The room was very good value for money. The shower was great. Overall I would highly reccommend it.

Disliked: The only bad thing I can say is that the staff were not overly helpful. We were not sure about how to travel and what to do and the staff did not really help with this. They did not show us how to use the public transport ticket or where to go in the city. They did not ask us how our stay was or if we needed any help with anything. When we asked they were slightly helpful but didn't go into much detail about any questions we had.

Liked: I've stayed in 7 hostels so far in my life, and this is definitely one of the best (if not the best). The location might be a turn off at first but it's a different neighborhood to see and great public transportstion makes it super easy to get from and to the hostel. (It's right next to a main station so it's so easy to figure transportation out) The whole hotel has a contemporary feel to and and has very good facilities, beds and showers.

Disliked: The Internet is a bit spotty.

Liked: Even though it is a bit far from the citycenter it is easy to reach with public transports. There is a young atmosphere, a lot of informations provided for trips, cultural sightseeing and so on. Breakfast is of good quality and you have a nice buffet.

Disliked: The rooms weren't that clean, but it was still ok. Generally it was not that clear how to proceed with payment. The hotel charged my credit card besides the first deposit of 15 % of the total sum also a huge amount one week in advance. It would be helpful to have a better communication betwenn hostelbookers and the hotel, so that you are prepared for that. In the booking confirmation it was written that total payment is to be made at place.

Liked: The guest kitchen was very clean and well equipped. We were upgraded to a four bed dorm (instead of a 7bed dorm), which was nice for us. It's very quiet at night, no noise from the communal areas.

Disliked: We disliked the distance from Amsterdam central, but we were aware of this when booking.
