Had a really good stay. Communal area and kitchen facilities were excellent good environment for meeting people on the evening. No bunks which was nice, mattresses a little hard and no wifi in rooms. However all of the bathrooms were very smelly, they seemed clean but the smell going into the corridors was awful, luckily it didn't go through to the bedrooms. Hopefully this will be fixed. Otherwise would recommend.
To me this is what a hostel should be, most of the staff working there because they love being there, so there's a really laid back atmosphere, the staff are very willing to help and organise things for the guests. It's a lively hostel with great smoking area and outside terrace, I wish we could have stayed longer, but it is expensive but for being beside the beach it is worth it. It was clean and the kitchen was good with food available to buy and a bar. Would definitely recommend.
The rooms were basic as was the bathrooms but were fine. The smoking area was nice, but it was just a smoking area and not the place for socialising or having a drink. The staff were able to give us maps but they weren't overly helpful as you can get In some, and there was no activities for meeting fellow travellers. Also it had no kitchen and Amsterdam is expensive to eat out on which we found difficult.
Loved this hostel, the staff were so friendly, helpful and run really good pub crawls. All the facilities were clean and worked well. There was also a really nice social space which a lot of hostels don't. I can't wait to go back and would definitely recommend here.
