Decently clean, staff were ok, somewhat secure and the wifi worked in the room which was nice. Free to leave luggage during the day after checkout. The front desk didn't open until 8am which was inconvenient if you have to check out that day but need to be somewhere in the morning like I had to. Good location. No kitchen which sucked.

Bob's Youth Hostel was great overall but some things like not having clean towels or padlocks on hand were a little bothersome. Other than that, everything was great and the staff was so friendly.

Hostel staff wasn't helpful. I stood in line and the man still ignored me. I found aunts in the shower, and all the facilities looked like it was lazily cleaned. Words to describe this hostel: dingy, semi-clean, mediocre. The only redeeming quality was the location.

Pretty awful place. Filthy bedrooms and common areas. Only mildly redeeming factor is the location

Service at check in was pretty slow and toilets would have been nicer with some soap and towels. Location was great though and the beds are comfy.

There really isn't an atmosphere at Bob's. The lobby/reception/bar feels pretty unwelcoming and you can't bring in your own beer or wine because the hostel sells their own (probably overpriced). The staff don't seem to really care about helping you out or connecting you with anything to do in Amsterdam. The room itself was fine and pretty spacious, but again, don't expect much. Not even soap in the communal bathroom. It's really just a bed and Wifi. But the location is perfect.

Night staff was unfriendly and almost made us miss our flight by not letting us check out. The hostel itself was fine, the shower had ants for two days though, and the bathroom was a little sketchy and there was no soap or toilet paper (toilet paper was provided after a day or two). The communal area was dark and had a strange atmosphere and was underground as well.

Great location- walking distance to centraal, dam square, red light. Also can walk to Anne Frank, Jordaan, the museums. Basic facilities, clean. If you're a solo traveller or looking to meet fellow travels, this may not be the best place for you as their common area isn't suited for meeting new people. But for the price and the location, it's a good option.

I got bitten a lot during the night, AC didnt work in the room it was so hot and this was in April. no soap/wash basins in the toilets so after using facilities one couldn't wash their hands without finding a free bathroom and remembering to take soap with you.
