Not what I expected. Great location, and it was nice to have the bar apart of the hostel. No value for your money.

Great location! Secure and clean place... A rather small bathroom with no shower curtain,but it was enough for us to have best quality time in Amsterdam!!!

On arrival the staff were very rude and unhelpful. The showers did not work despite reporting the problem to reception. The bar downstairs was dark and dirty which made sitting there uncomfortable. No wifi in the bedrooms. Overall far too expensive for what you get. The only good thing about this hostel is the location however I am sure there are better hostels in the same area which aren't such a rip off.

Fantastic location, good price and very clean. The showers are rubbish though and not many of them, lets it down a little. Also some sort of area with a fridge or something would have been good. Overall excellent though, thanks!

Main thing is the pictures on the site are not as they seem!!! This hostel offers the bare minimum for what you are paying for which isn't bad. Just don't have high expectations. There is a bar on the ground level and a pool table but not many people use it to meet other. Wifi is only offered on the ground level. Location is good since it is 7 minute walk to train station and end of the street of the red light district.

Very good location with a 24 hrs bar, but services are poor.

Location was the only saving grace about this hostel. I would only recommend staying at this hostel for no more than a day. Cleanliness was disgusting. Staff only cleaned our room when we checked out. Shower railing had a missing screw which made the curtain not stable. Beds were very bog standard and uncomfortable. Drinks were very expensive-suppose to have 20% discount with your card!?! Staff were not very friendly or helpful. Very unhygienic stay!

Location was amazing right in the centre by the red light district and right beside a canal. Had a wonderful view from our room. There was no kitchen. Bathrooms were very nice and modern although the showers were cold and had almost no pressure. Staff was not very welcoming- seemed like we were bothering them But it was the cheapest place we could find and if you are not too fussy about showers or friendly staff the we recommend this hostel

I read the reviews warning of Bedbugs but took the chance. Unfortunately it seems like I got them and maybe another girl in my group as well. Not everyone in my group did though so you can always take the chance. Otherwise the rooms and location were good.

The sports bar downstairs is the only place you can hang out at the hostel except for your bed (which is only about half a meter from the person sleeping next to you). It is not very clean and it smells wired everywhere.. The location though is really great, it's in the middle of the red light district. It is the safest area in Amsterdam and it is totally cool to walk around there (also as a girl). You should only stay here if you just want a bed and nothing more.

The showers were cold and dirty and no where to hang towls/ toiletries etc. staff were often rude. Not worth the money, although it is a great location
