Disliked: The stairs!

Liked: This hostel is near to the central amsterdam. Easy acces to all over the town.

Disliked: The staff was very unfriendly, his name is Hasan. He didnt treat guest well. Also the other staff, his name is Ismail. I wanted to early check out and he was telling me that i must awake until 1am to notify the other staff. Is this kind a bully for me? But the owner Ibrahim was nice person. Maybe he should train the staff again.


The property's response is

dear guest,

we are very sorry to hear this. We have investigated this issue and we think there is an communication misunderstanding. You cheked out early and he explained to you that you can pick up your key deposit also the evening before. We will do our best to prevent these mis communications in the future.

greeting

Liked: good location, good map with description, It's OK for backpack travel to drop in.

Disliked: narrow steps, but they offered the help. There're some loudly noise from the street and up stairs that bother the sleep.

Liked: I was able I check in early, and store my bags safely. The room was clean and big, along with the bathroom. Excellent location. The guy working there didn't speak the best English, but he was very nice and helpful. Stairs are a little scary, but not that big of a deal.

Disliked: Big fines if one were to do something wrong, or loose key, but most shouldn't have a problem with this.
