No internet in the rooms, dangerous stairs to get up to your rooms. Bathroom was disgusting and made the whole room smell damp because it didn't drain. Lookers didn't lock with travel locks had to buy a lock from reception and curtains didn't cover the whole window so sun woke you up first thing. Location is great and it's cheap, get what you pay for I guess.

Two stars: one for the location and one for the price. Perfect if you need a shelter.

It was dirty. We had to ask to clean after 3 days of staying. The cleaner told us that he is not paid for changing the sheets if it is e stay and others nights but before he did not came to change the sheets for the two beds witch the persons gone and came others. The cleaner did not clean the bathroom from all water(witch were everywhere except inside the shower cause of the really bad construction)and he ends with an aromatic spray. The hotel has not lift so we had to go up 4 floors.

best location if you are in big group, everything is right on your door step, some alright nightclubs studio 80 and escape, if you wanna fit brass round the corner, wonder bars decent, part from that the hotel is alright very cheap what you see is what you get, but if its your first time take a lot of money cos its expensive everywhere you go. i spent alot on ale weed and 5 brasses hahaha. even though it says including all taxes you will have to pay city tax which is not the hotels fault.

The en-suite bathroom was constantly flooded, since there was no proper way for the shower to drain. Strong smell of urine as well. Only 2 power-outlets in a dorm for 8 people. Extremely small room with very little ventilation - the only window could not even be fully opened.

+ Very close to the station, magnetic cards to open the door (feels safe), free maps, price (15€/ night in a 6 beds room) - Common space & atmosphere, no breakfast (you're aware of that when you book, but it's better with, right?), bathroom/ toilets ([room 5001] little space, unpleasant odour, bad impermeability with the shower doors so the water spills everywhere), cleanliness in bathrooms, narrow steps to get to the 5th floor, no ladder to climb on the bunk bed I wouldn't go back

The beds are much cramped here . The towels are not clean . The hostel is not clean and smells stinky in the stairs. I would suggest this hostel if you don't find another hostel . Keep this is as your last choice.

The rooms look like military facilities, the bathroom soaked, the upper beds didn't have stairs to get to them and we coudn't get wifi on our room. The price was way to high for what the offer, in my opinion. The only nice thing is that is right in the center of the city, but still...

You get what you pay for, the location is brilliant which makes up for the poor bathrooms and toilet on the 4th floor(2nd floor was clean and new).

Good: Location is central, close to the train station and walking distance from most of the city's attractions Great prices Pool table and bar in the lobby Grocery store next door Police station 10 meters away Bad: 10 beds and only one fan, the room was hot and humid. Would be dreadful if the weather got any hotter 2 bathrooms in the 10 bed room I stayed in but only one had a toilet No wifi or enough charging ports in the bedrooms

The hostel is not really clean. I had crazy flatmates and a lot of fun with them but I think that's just luck. The hostel is really central and it takes about 5min from the Amsterdam Centraal to the hostel. The toilet and the shower weren't really clean but I didn't felt disgusted. I had a good stay there. People who need more service should look for a better hostel or hotels but most of them are really expensive.

The location of the hosel was perfect! just a few minutes walk from a lot of bars, pubs and restaurants. But the cleaning wasn't satisfatory, and the lockes to small to fit all the luggage. The staff was always ready to give informations from turistic points with a smile.
