Location and service are generally good. There is an extra fee for lockers but not much. I would definitely stay here if I visit Amsterdam again.

There are no mirrors, plugs or bins in the room which makes everything difficult and means there is rubbish such as tissues left everywhere in the room. In terms of security, you are effectively given a piece of paper and told it is your key meaning that almost anyone can walk in. The whole place is rather dingy and covered in graffiti- not as the photos depict. Also much more expensive then any other hostel I have ever stayed in and one of the worst.

I stayed only 1 nignt and its was quiet good. Location was great, showers good enugh. If u need electricity and internet conncetion u should go to bar there are lots of plug but ı didnt like this system also internet was so bad at night.. Reception was always smiling and helpful for every topic. But especially rooms has need more fresh air because it smells like socks..

Please improve the WiFi quality, and don't allow people smoking inside the bar.

No internet inside rooms was the big downside for me, you have to come downstairs to have wifi on your phones/laptops and even then you have to sign up for it every time which takes time.

Just a stone away from the central station. Easy to reach the main attraction in Amsterdam.

Good: wonderful location, value for money, animated ambient, and sympathetic staff. Bad: can't use wifi in bedroom; can't recharge mobile, computer or any electronic things in the room (possibly, it only passes in my room), you should do everything unless shower and sleep in the bar(the common space); have to pay some fee and deposit if you want use the locker of your room.

It's a cheap hostel, so you get what you pay for. The bed was comfortable with clean sheets, the wifi wasn't working; i was confused about the kitchen facilities because i saw a small kitchen but it said "no entry: for staff only". The doors to the rooms don't lock, which isn't a big deal except you have to pay money to use a locker. The staff were nice. The location is great, so close to the city and central station - loud streets, not good if you want a quiet night

If you have a mold allergy don't stay here!! There is mold all over the showers! My friend became very Ill when staying here. It is right near the red light district though and has a smoking room and bar. The wifi only works with Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Also they do not wash the comforters after guests have left. There are 2 outlets for 18 people so you must charge your phone at the bar. The "lockers" are oil barrels which smell bad and cost money. Also no elevators for 5 floors.

Great location, the hostel is the second and third floor of a bar. Good bar to hang out and have a drink. Its a little expensive but its ok for amsterdam

No locks on the doors to the rooms, but lockers were available for rent. There weren't too many staff members, so they easily recognized who was staying and who wasn't (to buzz you in the front door). The floors were a bit dirty, and there was a lot of dust on our beds when we got there. There weren't too many females staying on the same floor as me, so the 2 toilets and 2 showers were fine. The staff were very friendly and helpful, and overall we had a good time!

The hostel had a great position and was exactly what I expected for the value. The lockers were a little uncomfortably placed. Besides that everything was OK.

I probably would have preferred being more outside the central district, cause even the cheap food wasnt cheap around there. Nothing to brag about in terms of staff, dorms or facilities. You have to charge your stuff downstairs, so people in the common area only use it for electronics. No socializing.

The middle-aged staff who ran the hostel seemed very disengaged, uninterested and uncaring towards residents. Couldn't drink your own beer in the lounge, I was asked to drink it in my room if it wasn't a beer bought at their bar. Wasn't able to store my drinks in the fridge, so it was either warm beer or their beer. Smoking room was nice and had a good view. Beds were also decent and there were lockers. No hot water on some days in the showers, which seems a little strange in Central Amsterdam..
