Too few toilets and bathrooms.


The location is good. However, the toilets are dirty at times and the bedsheets are not clean (i was itchy when i was sleeping on the bed) - bed bugs maybe?

Showers were a tinyy bit grungy if you're picky, wifi doesn't work in the rooms, and no lockers to secure your things. However, the atmosphere was nice and I didn't feel like my things were at risk of being stolen etc. The location is amazing.. Everythigg you could want is literally right right there, restaurants, bars, coffeeshops, you name it. The location of this place is everything.


Overall experience was good. Hostel was always fairly clean, though the bathroom was always the dirtiest as there was only 1 per floor. Staff was both nice and helpful. There wasn't really a common room, only the Small area near the front desk, so you really only got to talk to the people who you shared a room with. Location was the best part as you could walk to all the major sites in the city. You could walk to train station though it is a fairly long walk, tram was the easiest way to getthere


It was ok. No more no less. But the place around is amazing.

The hostel smelled awful. The bathroom was very dirty even after cleaning. The location of the shower did not have a curtain or anything so the water landed straight onto the toilet. I was also placed in a room with more beds than I had booked to be in.


No Breakfast, No kitchen, the bathroom is in bad condition, to avoid some flood thru the door, you have to use a floor squeegee, it doesn't have a shower box.

Although our stay was good because we got very nice roommates and we only stopped by the hostel to sleep, in general the areas weren't very clean, there wasn't a nice common area or place to chill, and you could only get a security locker by buying a locker yourself. The staff wasn't bad but neither too nice and we consider we payed too much for the facilities we got. We understand Amsterdam is expensive but for that price you can find a nice place anywhere around Europe.


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.
