31 August 2012

Liked: It was clean

Disliked: It was too far from the centre, and it is located in some sort of business area where theres nothing but buildings around. Boring. It was about 10 mins on the metro to the centre (where you wanna be). Last metro is at 12,30am so if you want to stay out and party you hv to catch a taxi back or... pay a night in some hostel to crash! Internet was free but... the girls had no common sense and spent too many time on it. I only got to use it once. Most of the time it was busy or, not working!

Liked: I loved the friendly atmosphere at the hostel - chilling on the comfortable couch, the wide selection of DVDs and one of the friendliest hostel owners I've ever met. It's also a great place for female backpackers traveling alone to meet other people and even some travel buddies. Also, excellent location! Very easy to find.

Disliked: Although easy to find, it's a little far from the central train station. I also find that the kitchen is a little small. It can get crowded during busy dinner time. Also, please skip the breakfast - for the price, you can get something better at the nearby KFC.

Liked: It's really clean and the rooms were very nice, bright, and well-decorated. Each one had a small balcony that adjoined to the room next to it. There were plenty of showers and toilets, all of which were really clean. The location was great for us - about a 10 minute metro ride into the centre, and Hostelle itself is about a 2 minute walk from the metro stop (through a populated and safe shopping centre).

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: It really was amazing, the owner had an incredible attention to detail and it was such a beautiful use of space. It was close to the railway station and the best directions we came across! There was really quirky things about it, a great use of outdoor space with hammocks and chairs etc. Also a very modern kitchen with storage space, lots of DVDs and books, free internet and wonderfully decorated rooms.

Disliked: "Breakfast" was 5 euros for a stale croissant and a refund was refused but we did get a burnt bread roll. Such a beautiful property though, my advice would be to just buy breakfast! Also the windows in the rooms are very small and there is no air con so we had to sleep with the window open with light clothing and no covers.

Liked: the girly decor nice staff you can purchase tickets to some attractions there they have laundry service for 5euros close to the metro

Disliked: -they need to add more electrical outlets/pulg-ins to the rooms. although it's close to the metro, it's about 15-20 ride to central station, but it's ok not a big deal

Liked: I would recommend this hostel to anyone! The decor is awesome, the other girls were friendly and I always felt really safe. The decorations and the fact that everyone is female gave it a sort of multi-lingual slumber party feel which was fun and easy going. The staff are excellent and helpful. Best hostel I've stayed at.

Disliked: The location is actually quite good since it is so close to the ArenA metro stop. It's just pretty hard to find the first time. Better walking directions from the subway / cab directions for those coming in too late at night for public transport would be good.

Liked: Everything! The staff was wonderful. I was beyond pleased. Free wifi. Good rooms. Free computer in the lobby. Kitchen to store stuff. Clean facilities. Safe and secure.

Disliked: The commute to the center of Amsterdam was longer than I expected. But still not bad at all by no means. The metro station is about a 5 minute walk away. And then once it you're on it, it is about 30-40 minutes to the center.

Liked: The staff was nice and everybody had to check themselves in and out of the building, which gave a safer atomosphere. The Hostel is pretty and well kept.

Liked: Very clean, great facilities, lovely staff.

Disliked: Location was a good bit out from the city but thankfully the train station is just around the corner. There are regular trains that took about 15mins to get into centre. Only downside was if you want to stay out passed midnight you have to get the night bus, which is a great service but takes an hour!

Liked: It's grate withe only girls in the hostel. The location is out of town, but OK. They have a small looker to every bed, even when it have a "window" in it it's possible to store your staff I think. It's one of the cleaner and save hostels in Amsterdam and I definitely can recommend it because you can be sure to get a safe place to stay. That's what was the most important thing for me.

Disliked: One day they moved my staff to another room while I wasn't there. I only found a notice at the door since the staff leave the hostel at 10pm. I had to find my sleeping clothes still in my old bed - they hadn't changed the sheets before giving the bed to the new guest! They should have reading lights, not only on request. The fridge in the really tiny kitchen should have much more space. The way from the metro to the hostel could be spooky if you are afraid since there are only few people in the streets after the stores are closed. The breakfast for 5€ was a shame - I picked up a coffee and a sandwich at "Backwerk" on the way to the metro.

Liked: To sum up, it was nice place to stay.

Disliked: The location of the hostel is not the best. Also, one of the members of the staff was a bit unfriendly and she looked like we were bothering her with everything. really unpleasent person. The other woman there was really nice and friendly.
