Liked: Location was great, good free tea and coffee in the morning. generally clean, basic and fine as long as you're not expecting luxury

Disliked: Common room is really small so not much room for socialising, also on our final night the hostel cat did catch a mouse in the hostel but that wasn't really as bad as it sounds (at least there was a cat to catch it!) For the price we paid (about 25 euro) it didn't seem great value for money but that might just be Amsterdam prices as its quite expensive anyway

Liked: Excellent location, clean comfortable beds. Overall we were very happy with the hostel. No problems at all.

Disliked: Bathroom/toilet on first floor is right by reception so you have to walk through in your towel after your shower. Room was a little bit small but not small enough to become an issue.
