Liked: First of all this hostel has enormous common room, where you feel like you are into a hotel lobby. No need to stay into the bedrooms like in many other hostels. Very good location close to tram train and metro, you can literally reach Amsterdam in 1 hour (or less). Very friendly staff, 24/7 reception, spacious bedrooms, clean, free breakfast. Exceptionally cheap per night (no matter weekend or not). This is by far the best hostel in The Netherlands that i stayed into, and I stayed at many. Worth every cent.

Disliked: The only thing I dislike is the 7 nights max stay policy, but in reality it does make sense.

Liked: Staff was helpful and the location of the hostel is fine.

Disliked: The price is too high for 48-bed dorm! Huge issue: each bed does not have its own electric place to charge your phone! only in the living room, place for 5 phones (!) to be charged simultaneously!!

Liked: Lovely, friendly and helpful staff.

Disliked: It felt like a squat. The rooms were enormous, the showers like school ones where it was necessary to keep a button depressed to keep the water flowing - at one steady temperature, no ability to alter it.

Liked: It was very simple, almost all services are separately paid for (lockers, linen, towels, pillows, blankets, etc.). Breakfast is typical dutch (toast, butter and chocolate sprinkles). And you have to serve yourself and clean up the dishes afterwards.

Disliked: Hosts and guests were not that sociable or cooperative. Sleeping rooms were stuffy and needed to be ventilated. Perhaps more hygiene is needed.

Liked: De Mafkees is cheap and there is lots of people. You can get a locker to keep your stuff safe.

Disliked: The WiFi is really spotty. They are using a router that is suitable for your one person apartment but not for a hostel this size. They definitely need to upgrade it. I had to move to another hostel to be able to get my work done.
