Liked: Not actually a hostel... It's a hotel. Very pricey compared to hostels but it is very close to downtown and very easy to get to bars, clubs, and "trouble" at night.

Disliked: Brandon left no negative feedback.

Liked: we payed for a room of 6 but they gave us one of 4. the room was clean and really nice, we had tv and a ventilator and a sink in the room

Disliked: the stairs!!!4 flights of really narrow and tall stairs.i had a troller so for the ones who are not traveling with a backpack I'd recommend a lot of patience if u choose this place. the rooms of the hostel were scattered in different buildings - so we checked in at nr 58 and were staying at nr 32. and there was 1 shower and 1 toilet per store - which had 10 rooms each with at least 4 beds.

Liked: Easy to navigate Amsterdam as it has a very central location

Disliked: It was hot, cramped, noisy, unclean and very strangely laid out. Due to the fact that 4 out of 6 members of my group got serverly bitten I believe that it may have had bed bugs.

Liked: I liked the location, and the fact that the beds and rooms were very clean.

Disliked: Staff not that friendly. The bathroom wasn't cleaned every day, so got very dirty. Also the bathroom/showerroom didn't have any sort of ventilation and got really gross. No common area to hang out in. Dorm room had one key for the entire room, which is a bit ridiculous when you consider 8 people were staying in it, and it would often go missing. It was very hot in Amsterdam when I was there, and there was nothing done to try and cool down the rooms. I am a female, and was the ONLY female staying in a dorm of 8, which made me feel uncomfortable.

Liked: Storage of values in the reception i ideal when living in a dorm with strangers. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

Disliked: We had booked 5 nights, and when we arrived at the hotel, we were told to move after 2 nights to another room. The first 2 nights were extremely hot on the top floor, where only a small fan would cool the air. Air condition should be in this room!!

Liked: Location and free wifi in my room. Having a tv was kind of nice for a little down time. Not for backpackers, but a decent place for short trips or if you came to Amsterdam to get wasted.

Disliked: No lockers! No common room, which meant no interaction, and no place to eat. Not really for backpackers or solo travellers.

Liked: Great Location. 10 mins walk from central train station. Rooms can get a little hot due to the building facing the east. Beds are good. Showers decent. Wifi is available if you have your own laptop to access otherwise there is not a computer for everyone to access the net. Helpful staff and daily your rooms are cleaned with a fresh towel supplied. All in all good for what you pay for.

Disliked: Michael left no negative feedback.
