"Just what you expect of a hostel. The room was a bit small for 6 ppl but it has it's own toilet and batheroom which was very clean and nice."

Liked: Friendly staff. The location is perfect though the hostel is hidden in a small street. The rooms are quite big and clean, neat and tidy, not too crowded with beds. I would go back again and recommend it!

Disliked: The stairs to get to the rooms...kind of dangerous!

Liked: It's really convenient, located like 2 mins away from dam square and there's loads of things to do a stone's throw away. Really clean rooms and bathroom. Staff are friendly and helpful and gave really good advice like the 1 euro amazing breakfast at Hema.

Disliked: The steps were too steep, but it's a dutch thing so it's normal.

Liked: Definitely decent value for an expensive city. Staff gave me some good info, very helpful. The hostel is clean, lockers in the room, working wifi, location couldn't be better.

Disliked: No common areas and no kitchen. Only go here if you just need a bed for the night, for the longer term I would pick a place with more facilities.

Liked: It was really good value for money, only £8 for a night and it is as described on the website. Very helpful and friendly staff. He gave me all the information I needed. The mattresses were the most comfortable I have ever slept in in a hostel. Private bathroom in the room was a bonus in stead of having to share one with the whole building.

Disliked: The stairs were very steep, but you will find this in most hostels in Amsterdam. It's not the easiest address to find, but when you do it wasn't that difficult after all.. Find the baker! Biggest issue was the freezing shower...! No hot water at all.. But again for the price we got better value than expected.

Liked: Staff are very friendly and willing to help and guide; Location is good and easy to find (except the entrance is a bit easy to be neglected); Linen are clean, fresh washed, inside room there is locker.

Disliked: The corridor is very steep but actually no big deal; no real kitchen but ok to us as we only spent one night and you can find a lot of things to eat outside.

Liked: Right in the middle of amsterdam so most of the tourist attractions are a short walk away.

Disliked: No social area or smoking room to chill out and meet other guests. You will never see a set of stairs as steep as those in the hostel but idgaf, you've got legs man use them.

Liked: I can say that the hotel is located in the heart of Amsterdam, you can walk to Dam Square and Centraal Station in 5 minutes and also the other attractions are easily reachable. Moreover, rooms and bathrooms were clean, the staff was friendly and the price was reasonable. I recommend staying in Central Station Hostel if you want a cosy, central, clean hostel.

Liked: Within minutes from centre on foot. Staff (Max) was friendly I guess,

Disliked: Entrance. I drove there with a taxi and even with GPS it was hard to pinpoint the street. Its a narrow street, with almost no signs. The hostel is far back.

Liked: Comfortable mattresses, clean toilet/shower room, nice staff, they let us keep our bags by reception on the day we checked out, nice flooring in the room.

Disliked: Very steep stairs, duvet was too thick, one of the bunk beds had no ladder, you have to pay extra for towels, low lighting in the room, no bath/shower mat.
