The staff was often missing from the front counter, or seemed confused as to how things were run. The door on our room closed slowly, and then suddenly slammed shut every time, waking everyone in the room up each time someone came in or out.
Great location, friendly staff and good facilities. Such a relaxing smoking area with a community spirit and a excellent view from the bay window.
Awesome location. Shower didn't have a door or curtain, which was a bit weird
Carefull!! These guys charge 2x or 3x the price! I paid in money at my arrival and they had made a credit card charge also. They told me in 1 week i would get my credit card charge back!! This is outrageous!! Additionaly they ask a 15 euro fee for key deposit! The 19 euro night now costed me almost 55 euro! They gave back the 15 euro key deposit but this was my last day of eurotrip and 15 euro was for eating! Now after 4 days leaving the hostel my credit card is still missing around 15 euro!!!!
Fantastic hostel with awesome rates inbetween the museums and the red light district. Wish I had of been able to stay longer!
It was a quiet place to sleep a little small in the rooms and the bathroom light needs to stay on it is a little inoying to have it shut off every 10 seconds. Beds were comfy.
Not the best location but the smoking lounge was awesome and met a bunch of cool people. overall would definitely stay here again
All together, a decent value. It's clean, no major issues. The price is good as long as you aren't there Saturday night (best to avoid staying in AMS then). Two things that would improve the experience: more outlets and more legitimate common areas. There's the reception area and a smoking area, but neither work super well for simple mingling if you don't care for MJ. I wouldn't have a problem staying here again.

Nice hostel if you're keen to smoke up, as they have a dedicated smoking room. Facilities aren't too bad. Overall, you pay for what you get.
Over all the hostel is a good hostel the only real complaint is that there is no kitchen.
We checked in and picked our beds, then headed out. We were eating early next the morning, only staying one night. After we went through the check in process, we asked what the was procedure for checking out early. They wanted us to come back at 11pm to check out. We went out for the night, and when we came back, a woman had taken the bed I had previously picked (and told the staff of). Towels were 2 euros each, but the bathroom with the shower didn't even have a working light.
Lo de budget es literal, es MUY barato pero es realmente un espanto. No soy muy exigente con los hostels, ni paso mucho tiempo ahí en mis vacaciones, pero realmente no era un lugar en el que quisieras pasar un segundo más que el necesario. No había baños en mi piso, me dieron un "upgrade" a una habitación con ducha incluída: la ducha estaba integrada a la habitación (mixta) -no tenía puerta- y tenía una mampara de VIDRIO.
The hostel was clean. That is about the only positive thing I have to say about this hostel. Water is 2.50 euro which I think is unfair considering tap water is not provided. Several of the staff members are rude. An Irish guy could not answer my question saying I'd have to wait 15 mins. It's like dude your making an egg sandwich it's not that hard. Terrible hostel for solo travellers. But would be okay for groups. Would not stay there again. Be smart book ahead for the flying pig.
No kitchen, microwave facility is available though. Everything else was alright.
Paid about 70 euro a night for three nights... Way too expensive but was all available. Hostel was clean, slightly quirky and accommodating. Rooms have lockers and wifi. No real complaints. Not the best in world to meet people as a solo traveler but good.
Great location, smelly rooms, very smelly common area
Muy bien ubicado, buena onda los empleados del hotel. El precio esta bien, salvo que viernes y sabados es 5 veces mas caro que los otros dias pero es normal en toda amsterdam. Los baños son muy chiquitos pero limpios, para un par de dias esta genial!

If you want to stay just for one night is enough to sleep. Confortable bed, tiny toilet but clean.
