Liked: Location was good nice and close to the train station. I had to carry my bag and my girlfriends (Which was bigger than her ) So it was good to not have to walk too far

Disliked: The stairs , Jesus . They are more like a ladder than a flight of stairs and if your unlucky you might find that you go up a few flights and then back down a few to get to your room. Crazy if you have had a few beers. Alot of places in Amsterdam seem like this but this place is mad i would hate to be in the bottom room if there was a fire. Also there is no real place to just chill out besides your room. Amsterdam is a hard place to find somewhere to just chill unless you are buying weed or coffee or drinking beers so a place with a comon chill out area is worth paying more for . I think

Liked: I slept in the 8 room dormitry. its straight to the point. no bar or breakfast just giving you what you came in for. 2 of the biggest pluses for me were the mattress that was really great and the fact that you have a private bathroom even in the dorm room. the room and the sheets were clean Free wifi The coffee machine (not free but amazing).

Disliked: couldnt use the hostel computer at 2am. but had freevwifi so that wasnt that of a big deal. the safe area isnt they should get cages.

Liked: The location was right in the middle of the city, very close to the centraal station. The rooms were clean, and the private bathroom for the twin room was decently sized for a hostel. Wifi was excellent.

Disliked: We had the worst room in the hostel. Our bed was under the stairs. So every foot step was heard, all night. And the other hostel stayers do not tread lightly down the stairs at midnight. The walls were also very thin so that any conversation in the halls was heard. We are very tolerant and have stayed in many hostels, but this was almost unbearable, and very little sleep was had.

Liked: I really liked the location. Close to the station and to Dam, close to trams, restaurants, coffee shops, etc.

Disliked: No elevator and so many tiny stairs to climb with luggages. No lockers for luggage. No common rooms or atmosphere, but you really don't miss this so much since you are in Amsterdam.

Liked: The location

Disliked: I disliked the fact that the showers were made for extremely small people and were to hot, plus the water didn't come out powerfully enough. The building could do with a lift and a but more space in the rooms with air conditioning.

Liked: We stayed there during the Queen's Day, it was full but still nice. Excellent location, 5-minutes walking distance from Dam Square on one side and the central train station on the other. Staff is really nice. Rooms have high-tech lockers with password. Free internet works on the rooms.

Disliked: The hostel lacks common spaces, so people stay in the rooms to chat, which is terrible for who wants to sleep. Also, a eight-person room with only one bathroom is terrible, had to wait hours in the morning for shower.

Liked: I liked very much the location close to Amsterdam Central Station and the fact that inside the rooms there are safe boxes that can be used free of charge. The atmosphere was nice and the view of the street with the tram and all the people is absolutely amazing. The room mates were not very friendly but at least quiet.

Disliked: The stairway leading to the hostel is very long!

Liked: The location is great. Close to central station and dt amsterdam. Only 10 minutes or so from Anne Frank, Van gogh museum and red light district. Showers were HOT. Rooms were safe. and they have lots of discount cards and maps at the front desk

Disliked: What i didn't like about the property was the noise. windows are not very sound proof. they are also old and they let in a draft so i would recommend choosing a bed against the wall and not the window.
