This hostel is located in a great position. You only need ten minutes by foot to reach the two greatest museums in Amsterdam (Van Gogh and Rjiksmuseum), and fifteen to Dam Place. However, our room was very small, with the ceiling too low (I'm 1.88 and I found it very annoying), there was only one bathroom for SEVEN rooms and the stairs were definitely too steep, even if this was not a huge problem for young people. A bit too loud in the weekend!

The following is no joke , the stairs into the room were like climbing a vertical ladder, the worst was to use the shared bathroom which was located a level below not a easy task especially in a bath towel because there is no hooks/storage for other clothes in the bathroom , we were unfortunate enough to have our shower time after another guest toilet break where it always smelt .A quick shower was impossible because the water temp changed freezing to scolding hot often, terrible experience!
