Liked: You get what you pay for... it's cheap, very centrally located and has clean sheets, hot showers, a communal area, lockers, internet etc. It's in desperate need of a lick of paint and the bathrooms are a bit mouldy... but let's face it - it's a comfortable bed for 10 - 15 euros a night, not a four star hotel!

Disliked: corridors and bathrooms were quite grim.

Liked: Bob's is full of character, interesting people, and smoke. For those young people who come to Amsterdam for certain reasons, this place is a great meeting grounds and good deal.

Disliked: Bob's may be a little dirty and have walls full of graffiti, but the atmosphere is welcoming and the upkeep is satisfactory.

Liked: LOVED BOBS!! Great place to meet people, really close to everything, great just to sit around and smoke, staff are awesome and helpful, lockers in room, wifi is good and there is one computer with internet

Disliked: pretty dirty and they shut you out of the communal area after 3am. The old man that works there is really grumpy and creepy walking around the rooms at night checking no one is sleeping for free.

Liked: The atmosphere is awesome, the downstairs common room is a great social space where you can chill, play cards and generally hang out. This really does make the trip! The staff are excellent too!

Disliked: The beds weren't great and there were mice in the room. Also there are several flights of stairs if you are staying at the top!

Liked: It is cheaper than other places with better facilities in Amsterdam. It is very close to the central station which takes only 5 minutes by walking. The bedroom was clean and the staffs were also friendly. I have been three hostels which are close to the central station in Amsterdam and here was the cheapest and best place.

Disliked: There are so many people smoking in lobby so if you are a non-smoker, you cannot stay in the lobby. And the reception is not opened for 24 hours.
