The staff is friendly enough, but they changed our room - we booked the 6 mixed dorm and they gave us 4 private - looks very good at first glance, but this private room was like a prison cell, without window and you need to go to reception every time you need to change air conditioning. As we decided later this change occurred because there were 5-6 girls in out 'booked' mixed dorm, and the owners decided to earn some additional money. We also heard about the similar situation with other guests.

The hostel was in a great location! Not too far from the big sites or museums, the hostel offered discounts/coupons for visiting certain sites, and the staff was very helpful! The guys that worked there went out of their way to tell us how to get somewhere, what was the best route to take and even called a cab for us at 3am so that we could get to the airport safely. On another note, I feel that the hostel was overpriced. Facilities weren't the best and the atmosphere was a little rusty.

My advice: never stay at this hostel. The rooms were truly filthy, smelt very badly and were noisy. It's located in the middle of the party region so never gets quit. To top it all, the prices aren't cheap. I've stayed in various hostels over the years but this one will never leave my mind (unfortunately). When I finally got home, I felt as dirty as after a weeks campingtrip.

Great Location, but no good atmosphere and quite dirty. Rooms are very dark, with only one socket in the whole room

Pros: The hostel is in a great section of Amsterdam, with dozens of shops and cheap eateries within 100 yards in any direction. Lockers are provided, (though you have to bring your own lock) and a code is necessary to enter the building (given to you at check in). The wifi works wonderfully in the lobby, though terrible in the rooms. Cons: Floor was filthy and sticky. The bathroom and shower are less than closet sized and dirty as well. Good if you're only looking for a bed to sleep at night.

6 people in a room less than 10qm. Single bathroom between 8-10 people. The size of the toilet is just too small. No towels were provided for free instead rent it for 3€. You can buy a towel at Hema for 3.50€ !!! Location.... Not very convenient if you would to go to Dam Square or the red light district on foot. Good tram connectivity though. If you want to visit the pubs near leidseplein its good. Overall, I wouldnt stay there again.
