    The beds were actually pretty comfortable! The room and bathroom was pretty clean. Building itself was a little noisy but that's unavoidable and nothing ear plugs couldn't solve! Luggage space and storage was secure and you can borrow a lock for a 10 euro deposit, which is convenient if you don't have one. The lounge is very comfortable and has ample seating with charging areas and good wifi.

    The best was the music the staff played at the reception area. The hostel expanded so the dorms are not where the reception is. Well its not a problem to go to another building for check in and check out, but because of that nobody was using the reception/ common area. Therefore its not really social, Besides that I had a nice stay and the staff is super friendly!

    This hostel is ideal for someone who wants to be right in the city on a budget. I met many different people during my 5 night stay and it was a great experience. PROS: Bob's youth hostel is located right in Amsterdam City Centre so you can't go wrong with location for the price. Women's room option Price Cons: I stayed in the womens room and it was just okay. my bed had some kind of gross crumbs or something along those lines on it. The bathroom was not very clean.

    As everyone says, it has a great location. My complaints would be with the cleanliness. It is difficult because our fellow hostel customers are the ones causing most of the nastiness, but we had throw up in our sink that was not cleaned up for three days. Unfortunately, it is the lack of consideration by fellow roomies. However, floors, toilets, and common areas could be a cleaner too. The conditions were gross and that's simple. However, not a bad experience, its all just part of the experience
