Liked: Nice people at the front desk, spoke english well. They were fully booked one night and let us sleep in the lobby, then cleaned our rooms for the next night early in the morning so we could get in.

Disliked: Only one key per-room. I think on the larger rooms they wouldn't even let you keep the key, you had to get it from the front desk and bring it back every time.

Liked: The hotel was very good! Good breakfast, lockers for valuables, free internet for the guests and nice staff.

Disliked: The location is not that good, it is about a 25-minute walk to the city center. The hostel should provide directions for travelers arriving from the bus station, since it is a very common means of transportation for backpackers.

Liked: Price and location.

Disliked: Very nice place and pretty clean. I seriously don't get the "bed bugs" comments of some people. There was nothing like that. Everything was good, including the breakfast. Three internet PCs for the guests downstairs for free. The only bad thing is (when you sleep in a dorm) they have safes for your small stuff, but to lockers for your bags (i just chained mine to the bed).

Liked: They had free internet, not just wireless, had a few pc's there you could use for checking emails or whatever for free. Staff are good fun when you get talking to them (will sell you cheap weed :) 11 o'clock check out was nice. You really just got to make your own fun I say and there are always people that will be up for partying hard in amsterdam, mind you the hostel wasn't really a party hostel, wasn't heaps of people there. but was still good.

Disliked: Is a bit of a hike to red light district where all the action is but you can always catch a tram.

Liked: That it was in a decent location

Disliked: Bed bugs, Mold, lack of commom areas, and cost way too much money. They put matresses on the floor and had 3 extra people sleeping in a crammed room. I had to walk on the matresses to get out of the room. Came in several times during the night and turned on all the lights to put even more matresses down. Only ONE keycard for all these people!

Liked: . There is free breakfast which is nice (it is juice + tea/coffee + toast which is good enough). Spinx hotel does keep its promise of free computer/internet use, free breakfast, and free lockers as well. Also it is near the Heineken brewery which is cool.

Disliked: Your average student hostel. Meaning don't except much. The faculties are good enough for a short stay, though they have towels with clear dirt stains on them. Wall paint is chipping, but what can you do.
