This is honestly the worst hostel I have ever stayed in, and I've stayed in a lot. Everything's absolutely filthy (there was a used condom on the floor for almost a week). No running water to the amenities upstairs. Kitchen gross/underquipped. No security, back door always wide open. The fire alarm went off during the night several nights, because people were drunk cooking at 3am. Noise at all hours. Expect to pay $10 for a locker. No space in the room, stuff everywhere. Vagrants live there.

The bathrooms were absolutely gross. Also pretty bogus that they make you pay to store your bag and use wifi after checkout. I paid it as I had to leave my bag during the day. When I unexpectedly missed my bus I ran back to the hostel to check wifi when I could get the next one (2 mins max). The staff was really funny about it, even when I pointed out that I paid so I could use the wifi the whole day. Facilities only ok. Nothing special.

This hostel is very clean and has a lovely location on the river, adjacent to centre city. However there were groups of young people staying which made it slightly annoying. Apart from them though the hostel was quiet and very comfortable. Breakfast was also of a high standard.

This is a realloy cool, chilled out place to stay. The big beds with curtains are absolutely perfect, and much appreciated after staying in hostels recently! This is the second time that I have been to this hostel and the staff are always really lovely and helpful. I would not hesitate to stay here again if in Cologne.

This hostel has a nice homey feel and the staff are very laidback and happy to help. I got bedbug bites from the bed though, which is never fun. There ia also no real common room, but a few couches in reception, but this means everyone sort of congregates together, so it's kind of nice.

I am happy you like it here even when you only booked for one night. Sorry about bites that i noticed you had on arrival!! (you should wash your clothes soon). Week ago we had very powerful spraying agains insects so its NOT possible its from our place. I`ve even called the company again and they did not found anything but just in case spray it again. i really hope you`re having wonderful time and enjoying your journey.

This hostel is a huge, and seems to have a lot of groups, possibly on school trips or something. So there are often some young kids mucking about. Also it advertised food, but each time I went to to order there was noone around, so I ended up going outside the hostel.

Dear Jeanette, thanks you very much for taking time to write us a feedback. I'm really sorry for the circumstances of your stay. That is definitely not that kind of service we would like to offer. We will take your review as the possibility to improve our service. Hope to see you again soon. Ronny Spilka Fo Supervisor

This is a great hostel if you are travelling alone, the atmosphere is great, and the nightly dinner provides a great way to get to know the other travellers there. There is not much more I would have wanted in a hostel.

Great place right in the middle of Amsterdam, only a few minutes walking distance from Centraal station. Has a whole room set up for smoking, with cushions on the floor, plus a cool bar area.

This was a really lovely hostel, quite homely and comfortable. The staff are some of the nicest I've ever seen at a hostel and always happy to help. The free dinner is outstanding as well (best I've had at a hostel) and it's great if you are travelling solo as you sit down and eat with everyone. Location is great too, super easy to get to from airport, close to main bus and train station. I would only say it's maybe a bit quiet if you are looking for a real party hostel.

This hostel had everything I needed - close to metro, free wifi, lockers, breakfast was good. I was upgraded to a better room because some people wanted to be with friends, I thought the staff were nice. Not a party hostel, but it has a reasonable price for the facilities it offers. The area can be a bit dodgy late at night though, but that's Montmartre.

The staff were very nice and the location in Amsterdam is great. It has all of the facilities a backpacker needs and the option of a hot berakfast is very nice. If you are looking for just a nice place to stay with no party atmosphere then I would recommend it.

The hostel is big, so not great atmosphere, but the bar is very nice and looks out over the Maas river which is lovely. The breakfast was great. I would stay here again in Maastricht.

The location is great, walking tours pick you up from the lobby, the bar/ hangout area downstairs is relaxed and always has people in it. I even met some locals there who had come to the bar because they heard the happy hour was the best in town! One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. The best part is the free dinner each night, you need to get there at least an hour early, maybe more, to get a place, but that means you talk to other travellers automatically. I think its a great idea.

Hostel is well located, the breakfast was one of the best I had in Brazil and the staff were really nice. Not much atmosphere though. It's near the bustop to the airport and falls which is handy. The wifi often didn't seem to work though and you had to pay to use the computers located in the common area.

Great hostel, was near a big street party during the world cup, so lots of fun. Bunks have curtains for privacy. Free caipirinha always good :)

The double rooms felt more like a hotel than a hostel, beds were very comfy. Good free breakfast each morning, sometimes they make pancakes. Location is pretty good near the metro.

Decent hostel for the price. Hostel does a package on a few tours (plus organises others) so you can book easily with them for a decent price. They have a bonfire for people to sit around at night which was nice. Though they are quite nice the staff are not very organised and don't speak much english which can be a problem (they didn't tell me to prepare for the cold for the geysers tour, it was lucky my roommates warned me to dress warmly enough, it was minus 15 degrees when we went).

Pretty cool hostel, great spot in the student area of town so cheap eats and bars nearby. Bar crawl starts across the road and walking tour finishes nearby. Got a bit loud some nights with parties out the back and breakfast was quite average, but overall good place. Staff were lovely and wifi always worked.
