Disliked: Not much, just a typical hostel, but maybe a little nicer than some but still a bit pricey as compared to other places. But, it seemed it was in line for the area.

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!

Disliked: The staircases were really hard to bring any big luggage up - very challenging that way.

Liked: TV in room. Nice paint color. Cute place. Great location - so close to red light district, central station, and many shops and food places.

Disliked: Network connection but no internet access. Only one key for the room of 8 so we had to leave it at the front desk which was annoying. Power went out the next morning so we had to shower in the dark. Extremely steep stairs.

Liked: The 10 min away from the central station

Disliked: The bathroom was horrible...smal, no even a hook to hang a towel...The mattress could not be worse, as well the pilow! I can not describe my deception when I arrived at the hostel. The staff....very okkkk...but no help at all with the luggage at the horrible stairs!! The only good thing is the distance from the Central Station but it is bad at night, to sleep, no silence at all!! And the price not worthy at all!!! I wouldn't pay 15,00/night for that!!
