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.


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.

We loved toe Location and that the staff was very helpful. However, for a Hostel it was a Little pricey.

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.
