Good hostel, great location for partying, not social, but some of the staff were great.
awesome decorations and great location. Lots of room for personal stuff at your bed, as well as your own power outlet(!). Clean. Front desk lady was a little disinterested/tired.
Extremely helpful staff! I had a 50 lb bag that I didn't want to have to carry up a million flights of stairs so they upgraded my room and have me something on the first floor! Rooms were a little dark (poor lighting) but the full-sized lock box was a great thing to have! I would definitely stay here again if I was travelling to Amsterdam! Amazing location right in the centre of the Red Light District.. Great atmosphere!
Did not realise it was in the heart of the red light district! Found that's out very very quickly. Lots of interesting characters staying there but no one was by any means "mean". The rooms are all painted black which is pretty horrifying! Good wifi. Payed for an average breakfast. Good location to see all the sites! Just not the place for 2 young female travellers!
Great location and value for money. Friendly and helpful staff. Only drawback was that the toilets stank out the room a bit and the wifi wasn't great. Beautiful and safe area of the red light district. We didn't feel the need to pay for trams as everything you'd want to see is located within walking distance.
The staff were friendly and helpful. The location was fabulous and easy to get to. The beds and power sources were well placed and comfortable. However, I woke up each morning feeling quite ill due to the old stenches of tobacco smoke. It needed much more ventilation. Overall it was a pleasant stay.
I loved that every bed had a safe, outlet and light. But the room was very dark, there weren't any other outlets in the room (not even in the bathroom, so I had to do my hair on my top bunk), and the floor would shake whenever anybody walked across the room, waking everybody up.
A bad place for a couple, but that's somewhat our fault for not researching better. The atmosphere is very much geared toward people out to get drunk and party. We booked last minute, so didn't have many options. On cleanliness: they would've gotten high marks, except once we walked into the bathroom and saw a mouse scurry by. They make an effort to keep things clean, but unfortunately the area is very dirty... the mouse freaked us out.
Terrible place for couples, but we'd recommend it for singles / stoners if it weren't for the mouse we saw skitter through the bathroom. The place looks really clean and the staff clearly works hard to keep things clean, but it's just in a nasty part of town. Be aware that you'll be timesharing with rodents because of that.
Great location, friendly people, definitely worth staying at!
It was good. Especially if you want to be right on red light district.
