Location is perfect, Average Clean and There is a Good Bar in the lobby.
Known as the best hostel in Amsterdam, the FP has a lot to offer. Security meaning that no one will get in unless youre staying there, a smoking room, pool table, and a decent kitchen. But, it's not perfect. The staff tried to deal with you as fast as possible (obviously because its a very busy hostel) and it can be very squishy moving from place to place. It's obvious they are just trying to fit in as many people as possible, which is fine, but don't expect to have your own space.
One of the best hostels I have ever stayed in!
We had a great time at the hostel. The set up makes it real easy to meet people and the bar was great every night. The showers were quite good as well. We were in the dorms which were quite loud, especially on the weekend nights, which would be really the only concern we had.
We were put in a basement room. It was a million degrees and the window didn't open, and it was extremely dirty in our room. When we got to our beds, someone had taken our locker and we were forced to keep all our belongings in lockers upstairs, which was very inconvenient. We left after one night of not sleeping...worst hostel I've ever stayed at.
The staff are beyond excellent, the atmosphere is beyond excellent! This place is a little diamond and if you're considering a stay in Amsterdam then you should certainly consider staying here! The communal area downstairs takes the place from a great hostel to an incredible one! I travelled with 4 others and we all felt exactly the same about the place! Intently perfect!

This hostel for teenage like enjoy the party because the around reception counter can drinking and have music on night time. The room have garbage from the teenage guest throw on the floor. Hostel should have notice to keep clean in the hostel.
This place is so awesome. Plan a long stay in Amsterdam and STAY HERE. So social, perfect for meeting new people but also really clean and comfy for sleeping. Good amount of bathrooms and showers, HUGE kitchen and downstairs hangout area. Staff is helpful. If you don't stay here you will regret it. 10/10!
Great Hostel if you are on the "Amsterdam Mood", meaning partying, coffee shops, etc. Very close from Central Station, Dam Plaza and Red light District, it has it's own bar and smoking place. Wouldn't recommend it for people that is looking for a more quiet enviroment.
When I arrived at the hostel and entered the room I was assigned to, there was someone sprawled out on the bed that was assigned to me, and there were four people crushed into the bunk on top of mine, all of whom were drinking beer and wreaked of alcohol, sweat, and smoke. There were beer cans on the floor next to my bed, and the window opened right onto the patio where people were smoking. I ended up leaving and finding another place to stay.
Nice location, great if you're a partier. Double bed dorm was nice since we were a couple. Good facilities. They had all the things you would want in an Amsterdam hostel - games, food, smoking room, bar, DVDs, etc.
Good hostel in a great location. All staff had excellent English. Great value for money.

It is definitively a party hostel. De bar is almost always full and the atmosphere is very good (for those who want party).
Nice place, bit noisy at night but they provide free earplugs! No wifi on third floor in the rooms and you have to provide own padlock to keep things like passport safe. Good kitchen. Nice smoke room and social areas. Would stay again!
Good hostel. A party place! Wouldn't recommend staying in the big dorms, a lot of noise. Not good for families. But all around a more than okay experience. Perfect if you are a tolerant person who likes to party!
I think one of the biggest problems what how far were the toilets to the dorm rooms. Overall a very good place to stay.
Overall a cool place to come back and chill after wandering around...the smoking room is the place to be to meet others from around the world...the mattresses were horrible, so pay for two and stack em up I guess..lolol very spacious lockers under the beds so everything can fit...for the best coffee shop, head west to Siberië..more locals, great coffee, even better quality green for less money than any other place I went..all in all I'd stay there again..don't ask me about breakfast..I slept in!
This hostel is amazing!! The staff was friendly, great location, the showers and kitchen facilities were both well kept. I stayed in a 32 person room, and it was never overly loud. Plus the atmosphere was awesome, very lively and welcoming.
