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.

Liked: Room is clean

Disliked: The room ventilation is very bad during summer. Temperature in the room is freaking hot and will sweat all times. Steps which in the hostel is very steep and will have trouble when you have a heavy luggage or backpack.

Liked: Great location, easily walkable from centraal station (even with my suitcase with no wheels), secured gate to enter property, clean bedding and bathrooms, price was good compared to others in the area.

Disliked: there are no communal bathrooms so when you are in a 10-person dorm there is just the one bathroom in the room that you share with 10 other people, so that can get very tricky. No common area so it would be difficult to meet other travellers. You need a very skinny lock to fit in the lockers. I just stayed overnight and was already familiar with Amsterdam so this hostel was fine but if you are travelling solo, looking to meet other people, this might not be the hostel for you.

Disliked: Stairs are dangerous, absence of a kitchen, the staff is not helpful, money was charged extra what was required on hoatelbooking: mandatory 20€ to get a key deposit plus an additional tax (non disclosed), both asked on the moment of paying and on top of what was supposed according to what was agreed online


The property's response is

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying with us. we are investigating wy the staff was unhelpfull. If you read on the website with "accomodation information"you can read that the 5.5 %citytax is not included in the price. The key deposit of 20 euro you receive it back after returning the key.
thank you
