Hardly any facilities, creepy men that work on reception, really BAD value for money. It's not much more to get a cheap hotel. Avoid staying. It's not nice.

No lockers in rooms, no bar, breakfast was awful (just some bread and spread, not even a toaster), no toilet roll in bathroom upon arrival. Good location and clean however

Overpriced in a completely tourist area. Bed are uncomfortable and difficult to use. Shower soaks the entire bathroom. Staff knocks and then walks in without waiting for a response at 9:30 ish each morning, which was just irritating for my group but would be a bit creepy for a group of girls. Breakfast included but not actually in the hostel. No elevator, brutal staircase

Just way to small for me. There are no kitchen or common room areas, although there is an outside terrace that closes at seven. The rooms and beds were fine but the bathroom in the 6 bed dorm was filthy and had puddles of water. I stayed for two nights and did all I could to spend as much time away from there as I could. The guys on reception are cool but in terms of value for money I say spend a little more somewhere else unless you really need a place to crash!

Although I did arrive on a day after a power outage in Amsterdam, there was no wifi for the duration of my stay which was frustrating. Breakfast is only bread, peanut butter and jam (no toaster). Staff were super friendly and helpful though - they were probably the best part. Directions to the hostel are very helpful and accurate and it really is in a great location - walking distance to all the main attractions.

In a brilliant location in Leidplein near tonnes of bars and shops of all kinds, plenty of coffee shops (including the one downstairs!) and restaurants. basic rooms but they have what you need. The windows let in a draught all night because they were old so a bit chilly as it was March. 24 hour reception which sells toiletries, food and drinks which is brilliant. Cheap and cheerful, definitely recommend if you are on a budget and need to save your money to enjoy the sights!

the bathroom n toilet so small and the ceiling is diagonal so it will hit ur head if u r a tall person. the toilet drainage not good, the water does not flow fast enough so if u take a bath longer then guarantee will have a flood. location is strategic near the attraction.

Breakfast was a joke, the cost was too high for what was given. The website had false advertising because there was no luggage storage.
