Good hostel. Nice lively bar downstairs. Decently friendly staff. Very hotel-esque feel. Easy to find and close to metros.
Very very strange vibe at the hostel. To enter, must hold up your set of keys to be buzzed in. Checkout was an absolute nightmare, would've missed our train had we entered the lobby at 10:59 instead of 10:57. Worker in lobby misinformed us of closing time of Heineken factory on our last day, causing us to miss it. Nice bar. Out of all hostels in Amsterdam, would give this a pass.
Staff spoke many different languages, impressive. Good security. Very dorm like. Had a younger (like 14-17 year old) feel. Decent location, 20 minute walk from Red Light. Laundry facilities good.
First time in a hostel, about what I expected. Extremely well located, close to the cathedral and more importantly the rail station. Had all you can drink sangria and a pub crawl stemming from the terrace, which was nice. Largest complaint would be the lake-like pool of water that would form in the bathroom floor after a shower, accompanied by a somewhat condescending sign to clean it up. Overall, pretty good, but not certain I'd return.
