Liked: The location is really good!!!

Disliked: I stayed in the 16 female dorm, and bed is near the toilet and shower, so I felt not good to stay there. And that room just only 3 plugs, one is next to the door, the other two are next to someone's bed, that is really unconvenient!!!!I spent 30 euro per night, that is really costy!!!

Liked: Nice atmosphere, friendly staff, clean sheets, big lockers, nice graffiti on the room walls :)

Disliked: There were mice in the room at night. They didn't bother the one of us who was on the top bed, but you can hear them if you sleep on the lower bed. Also keep your bags on you bed or in the locker and don't store any food there.

Liked: The location of this hostel was great, within walking distance to central Amsterdam. The staffs were friendly and and the ambiance was great. I met a lot awesome people just by staying at this hostel.

Disliked: The shared shower and bathroom were dirty, definitely bring shower shoes! The storage lockers were a bit rusty and old, somewhat dirty. There was only one computer, but wi-fi is provided.

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.
