Staff were great, bar was nice. Breakfast was really good, though you'd expect that for nearly 6 Euros. Not the easiest place to meet people, but really very nice.

Firstly, it's WAAAAY outside Amsterdam. You have to take a train and a bus. They advertise as 20 miles, but the journey takes more than an hour. They have a shuttle but runs seldom and you have to book a seat (which there aren't many). Second, it's not beside the beach, so they shouldn't advertise it as a beach hostel. It's just NEAR a beach. There's not much to do out there, we were hoping for some swimming but the water was freezing (mid-July). We cut our stay short, partial refund :-(

Manny is an amazing guy who makes you feel welcome and at home immediately after walking through the door. I was only there a couple nights, but it was a great chilled out atmosphere. Dude needs to buy some new bed linens though. They were that fake silk stuff, which is comfortable but slips off all the time.

Stayed here 3 nights and ended up spending most of my time at SCUBA Junkie, which is foreigner run, so they understand the kind of atmosphere we're looking for. Global Sipidan has Pretty much no common space, just a picnic table in the lobby. The bed hard and the pillows even harder. The air con was loud and started dripping on the bed - they fixed it but didn't change my sheets. The staff was nice, but not particularly engaging. All in all, substandard hostel, even for Malaysia
