Liked: It's a really fantastic hostel stay experience. I like this hostel so much, it's really modern, clean, functional. Every staff which I met is so kind, the location is also good, by walking two minutes to the nearest train station and metro station, you can get reach the city center really fast through metro or train without any problem. Anyway, I will still choose to stay here again when visiting Amsterdam.

Liked: Very clean and worth the short trip to city center since the hostel is right next to the train/bus station. They include towels! Helpful staff!

Disliked: I would have liked bigger lockers (large enough for a airplane carry-on) under the beds instread of near my room entrance. More privacy in the rooms would be nice...since no curtains around beds, it's difficult to have lighting on without disturbing roommates.

Liked: Its a really nice hostel, super clean and safe, the people working there are really helpful, but it's a bit hard to meet people if you're a solo traveler, the atmosphere is a bit familiar since it's also a hotel. Other than that, perfect place to stay, 15 mins from Central Station by bus.

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.
