Liked: Staff is friendly and helpful. Great location, within walking distance to most sites.

Disliked: No soap in the bathrooms- make sure to bring your own. No towels are provided (can rent for 1 euro + 5 euro deposit fee). It is in Amsterdam, but the lounge is full of smoke and weed all the time.

Liked: The beds were comfortable.

Disliked: It was pretty dirty and had an unpleasant odour. The breakfast area hadn't been cleaned from the night before when we got up and the floor was sticky with garbage. The breakfast was not great and the luggage room was disgusting.

Liked: Proximity to Amsterdam Centraal. There is a tram stop right outside.

Disliked: This place is a complete mess. I was in the 16 girl dorm and it was SO dirty. They hardly cleaned it. When they came and "cleaned," the sink top was still extremely dirty...so what did they do?! Also, the wifi is NOT reliable. It wasn't working properly when I was there and the receptionist said she didn't know how to fix it. She should have found someone who could fix it!!! It was very inconvenient. Also, the music in the common area and the bar next door is extremely loud, so good luck sleeping if you're near that side of the hostel. On top of this, the hostel common area is cramped and people would block the walkway with their chairs. This is annoying and should be prevented...Especially because it's kind of a fire hazard. Anyways, go here if you want to blaze, but that's about it.

Liked: It's really nice the fact that the reception is a bar, with good atmosphere, as well as the place for breakfast.

Disliked: The breakfast is a little bit poor and should be more organized.

Trip Type:
Partying / nightlife

Liked: Para ir com um grupo de amigos do melhor.Atenção que o micro-ondas não é no quarto, é na sala de convivio/recepção e para lá chegar tem que se atravessar a rua, nada de outro mundo.Tem supermecados perto, a ideia é ir ao supermecado comprar todos os dias, já que não existe frigorigico para comprar logo tudo no primeiro dia.Tem massas para duas pessoas a 3€ (recomendado) e saladas pelo mesmo preço que também marcham...O pequeno almoço é aceitavel para o que se paga, ovo cozido (dá para repetir) duas fatias de pão (manteiga/doçe) Leite, Chá e café à discrição!

Disliked: Para tomar banho de manha é complicado nos quartos com 18 pessoas.Com 18 pessoas o quarto é normal acordarem as 5 da manha com malta a chegar, mas a rapaziada até respeita e tenta fazer o minimo de barulho.
