Nice hostel, and great staff. Bathrooms were clean and they have towels to purchase. They don't have breakfast but they do have coffee and tea. Only thing was when I stayed there was some sort of construction going on either in the building or directly infront of it so it was difficult to get sufficient sleep. Other than that it was good value for money.

Bob's is a good place to be if you just need a place to sleep at and meet a few people along the way. It is in a great location between the touristy and less touristy areas. Unfortunately no kitchen and the lounge could be more inviting (more art!) but all in all~ a great place to be!

Very close to Dam Square and train station, just the basics inside. The motion sensor lights in the shower were incredibly annoying, also the big clunky metal trunks for your bags. They do give you a lock for this, but they make so much noise. Also so cold, it was like there wasn't heat, especially in the rooms. Wake and bake atmosphere, a little difficult to meet people if you aren't planning on getting high all day.

Staff were very friendly if somewhat disorganized. Awkward that the check in area is the bar area. Stayed in I think a 16 person dorm? It was okay because it was a large room and barely half filled, but would be tough if filled to capacity. Bathrooms were already gross after 1 or 2 nights (and that's with only a half filled room). Heater didn't seem to work. Lobby/common area was always buzzing with activity though. Excellent location and really not a bad accommodation for the price we paid.

Good location, friendly staff but not the best for security.
