The hostel was way out of the way, but it's easily accessible by tram or bus. It's basically a motel. Not much character or culture to it. The rooms don't have lockers so you can't secure anything. The staff were not especially friendly. The price was good compared to others in Amsterdam at the same time, and is suitable if you're only staying one, maybe two nights. Unless you want to spend a ton of money on transportation back and forth between the hostel and the city, I would suggest another.
