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!!

Liked: clean place

Disliked: all the bunk beds are metal and squeak very badly and it keeps everyone up in the room. I am used to an 8 bed hostel like that but not for 40 euro, I would not pay more than half that for such a terrible nights sleep with an early start! Wish I had paid another ten euro for my own room, terrible value for money.

Liked: É realmente muuuuuuuuito bem localizado. Dá pra ir arrastando as malas sussa até lá. Tá no centro, perto de lojinhas, bancos, restaurantes e tudo mais. O quarto pra quatro pessoas é espaçoso e o chuveiro é muito bom. O nosso era no primeiro andar, qto menos escadas melhor e o o sinal do wi-fi chegava lá. O que é muuuuito bom.

Disliked: Como quase toda construção em Amsterdam, é antiga, com aquela escadinhas íngremes, estreitas e de degraus altos, mas fazer o quê, não é nada que uma pessoa saudável não possa fazer.

Liked: The location is great for getting to the main attractions because you can walk everywhere. However if you don't want to stay on a touristy road then I wouldn't recommend it. Overall it was quite clean and they also had lockers in the rooms.

Disliked: The bathroom had no ventilation and the floor flooded very easily because the drain was too tiny. The room also got really stuffy at night, even though it wasn't hot weather when I stayed, and we didn't want to open the window too much because it is a main road and it would be impossible to sleep with all the noise. Maybe it is different in other rooms not facing the road? Overall it's not too bad and the convenience of the location outweighs the negatives, however don't expect to get a restful nights sleep.

Liked: Only the location, close to the central station.

Disliked: The first impression is terrible, because the entrance is creepy. The room is one of the smallesties I've ever seen. And the bathroom was dirty. They don't offer breakfast and even the coffe from the machine must be paid!
