This is one of the best hostels out there. The staff is incredibly friendly and goes out of their way to make sure you feel at home. The place is cleaned constantly. It is easy to get to know everyone in the hostel quickly with how the layout is. Pub crawls are frequently organized by the hostel staff. The location is perfect and right by the main avenue, and it is a short walk to one of the major train stations.
The owner of the hostel/guest house is extremely accommodating and friendly. He prepares breakfast everyday, and the other guests will likely share their food with one another. It is a small, secure environment and everyone gets to know each other quickly. The train stations are a short walk away
The staff was super friendly and they were always cleaning the rooms and showers and toilets and willing to help with whatever one needed. The locker systems is very good for security, but it can get a little crowded around the lockers, because the space in front of them is a little tight. The location is about a 30 minute walk from the real party areas of Amsterdam...but Vondel park is right next to this hostel, and it is amazing. It is a more laid back hostel than the Downtown Flying Pig.
This hostel is in the perfect location. It is easy to find from the train station, and it is a short walk to all of the best party spots in Amsterdam. The electronic locker system is very secure and easy to figure out. The bar area is secured off from people just walking in that don't have hostel access. And the bar/lounging area is excellent for meeting people...everyone wants to talk to each other and be friendly.
This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. There are lockers in the common area and in the rooms. There are plenty of showers and toilets, and they are cleaned constantly. Everyone leaves their stuff lying around and no one messes with it. The bar and restaurant are excellent and massive and bands frequently play. Buses and other rides will come right to the hostel to take you on your outdoor excursion when it is booked. The best parts of Reykjavik can be reached on foot quickly
