the beds were terrible, the showers were always burning hot and impossible to control but the tube was near by and if you order from the regular menu the food was really good but the discounted hostel menu was pretty poor.
The lights kept flickering on and off, the wifi barely worked and it's not actually a hostel because the kitchen wasn't available for guest use and there wasn't much of a common area. Also you had to request a fan for your room, I wasn't told this and since there was no air conditioning I was pretty uncomfortable the entire stay.
No matter what time of day the temperature in the showers was unpredictable, either burning hot or freezing, it was hard to get it somewhere in the middle
It's a pretty new place so I was glad to have properly sharpened knives, the people who own the place are sweet hearts and really make an effort with everyone staying there, I would recommend it to anyone and everyone.
The bar and kitchen staff were great, but the owners working reception didn't have much customer servic skills, none of the facilities were pointed out or explained. But there's definately a good vibe its easy to meet people from the hostel in the bar. It was easy to get to and the area is very much what you want from Amsterdam.
All the tour information was right at hand and the staff was very helpful I really enjoyed my stay
