Petra and the family that run this hostel are amazing, Petra picked us up and dropped us off at the airport! The Dad couldn't speak a word of English but still went out of his way to make us feel at home and cooked us a BBQ whilst the mum did our washing for a few euros! Everyone was more than happy to help! The location is great, just on the outside of the old town and the value for money is exceptional, can't wait to go back next year !!!
Location of this hostel is very poor and the staff speak very little English and reception is permanently closed! Would not recommend going here to meet people as your are isolated in your own room, there is no common room. However for the price you get what you pay for and the facilities are quite good
Scubes are great, really big and clean and there are all the facilities you need as a back packer! However not the best places to go to meet people from all over as it is a campsite for German holiday makers, and the location is a fifteen minute subway tide away from the centre and stops running at 12am, so you just have to party till 6am till the next subway runs
Although the outside of this hostel and its location makes you wonder if your entering a working brothel, once inside the decor is ace, really unique! The staff in particularly the girl behind the bar are really helpful! Only let down is the price when you take into consideration the lack of facilities for back packers, there is no cooking facilities or fridge, although there is Lidl two mins away! Would recommend the academy music bar close by, amazing live music
Excellent location only 5 min walk into the centre of Amsterdam and Red Light District. As a couple we found the rooms extremely small and it was impossible to get ready at the same time. Highly recommend Cafe Pollux which is a 2 min walk away, great staff and great atmosphere.

Great atmosphere and mixture of people! Ruined slightly by the lack of security in the evenings, having our door kicked down at 6am by some screaming girl wasn't too great!
