Liked: Location only. This hostel is 2 mins walk from the red light district with all the girls in the windows, and there is restaurants, fast food, souvenir shops right below on the the street. The shopping area with loads of fashion chains and boutiques are just in the street behind, So location wise, you can't get any better.

Disliked: There was a VERY mouldy pizza left in the room for who knows how long, there was hallucinogenic mushrooms that were also mouldy left in the room. There were food containers, redbull cans, seriously the list of rubbish goes on! There was a very very sick Polish girl staying in our room for the 2 days we were there and on the last day some thug guys came in and made her get dressed, she was very suspicious when we asked her general questions like what did she do for a job. We had an American guy also only frequent the room to pass out and throw up in his bed - not kiddding. The bathroom was not only very grimey, but the mould smell was so strong it make me dry reach, Oh and last point, if you have a suitcase you should get a gold medal if you can actually get it up the crazy, dangerous and numerous flights of stairs.

Liked: Pin lock safes in the room, free towels, fairly comfy beds.

Disliked: Extremely steep stairs and no elevator. One of the staff people helped me bring up my things when I checked in, but later, when I was going to my room, the staff person that was working at the time refused to help, a little rude in my opinion.

Liked: Originally viewing reviews about this hostel we were hesitant to stay here, but all the negative things said were totall overexaggerated. Yes there are steep stairs and a lot of them, but if thats the worst things about the hostel then Id say that is a pretty good one. There are two friendly Chinese ladies who greeted us and were very helpful at the desk. Though there is no commonm area, we met a lot of travellers inside our dorm room. The location couldnt get any better (3 minute walk from the train station and 2 minulte walk from Dam Square or the Red Light District). Definitely worth the money.

Disliked: Stairs are plentiful and steep but doable. Rooms are rather hot at night time, and we only had one fan in a room of 8 and it was facing the other direction.

Liked: Staff could be more friendly and helpful. If you check out after 11 AM - even a minute - you get charged an additional 10 euros. Beware!
