Great location, and super close to the train station and shuttle to the airport. This hostel throw great parties everynight on the rooftop, pub crawls or BBQs. The room were good, but the bathrooms need to be upgraded. (No drain on the bathroom floor so water pooled up after showers. There is a travel agency inside the hostel complex so booking trips and sights in Rome were right there!
This is one of the BEST Hostels i have stayed in! Its been remodeled so everything is working, clean and fresh. The staff was beyond expectations, and the bar was very fun. Having it been on a island across from the main square doesn't matter, ferry runs every 20 mins and takes 5 min to cross canal. Make sure u buy tickets on the main island first tho!! Stayed in a 16 person room but it seemed like only 4 ppl where in there (Rooms are huge)
My stay at the hostel was very good. Location is a 5 min walk from the main "bars" in Amsterdam, and also close to museums. The breakfast was one of the better ones i have had in Europe, but the atmosphere in the hostel was lacking. There was a common room but lacked events or reasons to get ppl to go down there. Clean, rooms are big and bed are comfy!!
Location is very close to the Train station and Sacre coure. The rooms were nice and clean, and the common area was always lively and had cooking facilities!! There is a roof top area which is nice at night to lay around. It was hard to find at first from the direction they give on the homepage. As for location there is a metro stop 3 min from the front door. At night, the area does have a lot pickpockets, because the sunset is really nice from our location. Be careful after dark!!
