Disliked: The rooms were too small and absolutely too warm. No air conditioning and the window to our room had steps outside that led to another rooms window so if we left it open anyone could come in!

Liked: Location.

Disliked: The room is an oven, even though the night was chilly outside, it was really hot inside, no idea why. No noise isolation, curtains don't let the room dark (it's the center of Amsterdam, there is light outside all the time). The lockers didn't lock properly. The bathroom smelled of mold and flooded every time someone took a shower. There is no kitchen and no breakfast. The staff is not very helpful.

Liked: The staff were welcoming, the building was clean and everything worked, good showers and comfortable, also warm in the nights.

Disliked: There wasn't a social area for people in the hostel to meet and have a drink, I think this is key for travelers.

Liked: An ok tv in the room. Could smoke on balcony (one of few rooms with a balcony).

Disliked: 5th floor. With amsterdam stairs very difficult on a daily basis. The balcony was nasty full of green water with cig and joint ends. Rat skeleton on balcony also. But cheap and cheerful for stoners.

Liked: Location and the girl at the reception was nice. Let us check in early around 11. She offered us to view 2 rooms, 1 on the 2nd floor and 1 on the basement. We opted for the room on the 2nd floor.

Disliked: The room was dark, lighting was insufficient and bathroom smelled like urine. No one replaced the tissue box in the bathroom and i dont think there was any cleaning either otherwise the smell would have vanished. They pre authorized 1 night chrge on my bank account and on the info it states that it will be released after 3 days. I initially have no problem with this but after 2 weeks of pre authorization the amount has not been released. Sent them an email after my stay asking why the amount is still not in my account, they said that it will be released after 4 weeks!!! 4 weeks is too long and the amount is around £40!!!! Give my money back!
