The location is great and from what I saw the dorms seemed OK but we were in one of the private rooms for two and our room was under the roof, with not even a meter where we could stand up. Now if it was super cheap I wouldn't have cared because we weren't looking for anything fancy but we still paid 240 euros for three nights... Now it's true that accommodations in Amsterdam don't come cheap but for the room we had it still seems like way too much. The hostel is otherwise clean.

Stay away! At check-in, you’ll probably be sent to another hostel with rude staff. The rooms upstairs are awful, you can’t sit up straight in bed (sloped ceilings and tiny). The mattresses are filthy and uneven, so don’t expect a pleasant night’s sleep. The wifi signal is non-existent on the top floor. The rooms and bathrooms weren’t clean, and there aren’t enough for the number of guests. It’s honestly not worth the money you’d save to stay here, and I didn't even get bedbugs like the others...
