Liked: The gardens are the best! Best atmosphere of the hole hostel. The staff were very helpful too, and you can meet many people in the common areas.

Disliked: The beds are not that comfortable, they were short and a little loud. The bathrooms are the same thing, one for 5 rooms, not dirty but old. But the hostel is good generally and those are things you get used to.

Liked: Garden was beautiful and common area was a great place to relax and meet other guests. The kitchen helped keep costs down. The staff was super friendly and helpful, and they were really nice, because my flights kept getting changed, and they were understanding about the situation. Conveniently located to Utrecht central station and the old city, with a grocery store around the corner. A wonderful place to stay!

Disliked: Had to press button in shower for water every minute- slightly odd, but not a big deal.

Liked: Very good place, there was a very helpful guy on the staff (forgot his name)

Disliked: You can't enter after 2am (or 3am on fridays and saturdays), that is VERY bad, since the city has lots of nightlife options.

Liked: it was clean

Disliked: They change the code for entrying the building at 3am, so if you come later than 3am you have to wait until 8:00! Seriously, what are they thinking?

Liked: The kichen is clean and stuffs are useful. The location of the hostel is near to the central station and easy to go to the Dow tower. I have took lots of pictures for the Utrecht as the location of the hostel is so good.

Disliked: The description of this hostel is a little bit unclear, as it said that it is behind the church, but the place is really hard to find if you come at the first time. I have asked lots of people and finally found the place.

Liked: Extremely central location. Decent kitchen offered for use. Coffee and various drinks available for purchase at a bar. Free wi-fi.

Disliked: Staff wasn't the friendliest. Curfew at 2am. The window to my room faced a very noisy street and made for a difficult night's sleep. Also, the hostel tended to attract older male travelers. If you're looking for an atmosphere with a fun, young, backpacker vibe, this isn't it (unless I was there on an off day)
