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: The breakfast was lush and all-in-all it is a great value for money, well-located hostel!

Disliked: Climbing lots of stairs and being housed in a separate building...it was only a minute or two walk away though to be fair!

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: The chill out room at reception- you can sit and drink or smoke until they close at 3pm - good for meeting people, especially if you're travelling on your own. Cool decor too, just loads of stuff stuck all over the walls, looks like a proper hostel. Super comfy beds! Never had them that comfortable before!

Disliked: Only thing I really didn't like was the cleanliness.. From the reviews I was expecting it to be really bad but the day we arrived it was fine, but it took until the 4th day of our stay for the room to be cleaned again. I understand that this is the cheapest place in Amsterdam and maybe you get what you pay for, but it would just be so much better if it was at least done every second/third day - especially because the dorms are so big. The doors to the dorms don't close properly so it's easy for someone to forget to pull it tight leaving it open quite often

Liked: The location is very good, the lockers are very big and a simple breakfast is included in the price.

Disliked: If you're staying at the hostel and want to reserve more nights from the reception, you can only do it very early in the morning before check-out time and only one night at a time. This is very weird. Also during one night when I was staying at the hostel, the owner came and woke everybody up (!) to ask about receipts or something... This seemed highly unprofessional and was very uncalled for, as getting sleep in a room with 15 other people is hard enough in itself.

Liked: The location next to the shopping street was good.

Disliked: The room was very dirty on the ceiling and also on the corners. The beds don't smell very well like perfectly cleaned. Another problem was the door which was already broke in the past, it gives no confidence in our Hostel. Then the reception is not on the night open, we leaved Amsterdam at 6pm and nobody and nothing was for our help to give the keys back...
