Fionnuala Bulman thinks…

"Great location close to the central station but directions could be clearer. Rooms were light and airy even in the middle of summer. Showers and toilets were mostly kept very clean. Lounge downstairs…"

Customer review

02 April 2010

Liked: The staff here was horrible, not to mention discriminatory and definitely more than a little sketchy. For example, when I arrived to check in, I was about 30 minutes late, and when I told them I wanted to check in, they said it is a good thing you came now, we almost gave away your room. After 30 min? Really? Next in line was a group of women who asked if there was a room they could stay in, to which the staff replied, nope, all full. Not 10 minutes later, a group of men walk on up and ask the same, only to get 4 beds. Also, be sure to buy a lock at this place, even at the risk of losing the 10euro deposit for it. The rooms aren't fantastic, but if you only need a night, show up early, leave early, and don't bother with the staff.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Sunbin Zhu

02 December 2009

Liked: Good location. I lived in a mixed room for 6 people, there is no toilet in the room, 3 small dorms share one tiny toilet. i cannot find a place to take bath in the whole building, maybe it is in another building. And the quilt is not folded well when i arrived, looks like someone else has slept in this bed. The sheet looks clean but old, somewhere broken.

Liked: Stayed in the second building around the corner with minimal atmosphere. Staff seemed annoyed to help me and was woken up and treated like cattle when 10:30am rolled around after I had paid for a second night earlier that morning.

Liked: The dorm rooms are not the nicest but the atmosphere is very good at this hostel. Very good way of meeting people as there are always a lot of people relaxing in the common room as you can smoke weed in there. Very fun place to stay, probably made my stay in Amsterdam.
