Liked: Very good location and clean place.

Disliked: Very long & steep stairs. Takes some extra energy if you wanna quickly pop in your room if it's for example the fifth floor! Stairs might also be a bit difficult if you're like 195cm-> tall.

Liked: The location was excellent. On the Damrak that is straight on from Central Station. Close to absolutely everything - main shops on the road behind the hotel, you can enter the red light district by crossing the road from the hotel. Is good for a short stay.

Disliked: At 9am each morning the bell in the church infront of us rang for about 5 minutes, is soooo loud! Also, they charged an extra 5% administration fee when we arrived at the hotel to pay which we were not warned about before hand. For our group of 11 that was an extra 45euros.

Liked: It was right on the main street of Amsterdam, and the pedestrian street full of shops was just behind it. The hostel was also very close to the central station!

Disliked: The stairs were narrow and steep. The directions to the hostel were misguiding. Place is also a bit pricey.

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.

18 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

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.
