    I stayed only for a night but met some really great people. The hosts are friendly and it's only a 6min walk from Amsterdam Central. The pub crawls are nice!

    I had a really fun time at the hostel. They have a happy hour from 8-10 where you can buy a beer from the front desk for 1.5 euro. Usually around this time people will be in the common room and kitchen eating and drinking. Then whoever wants to keep partying will group up and go out somewhere. So really easy to meet people of you are solo. Everything was pretty good. They had an outdoor chill area that was like a little garden which was cool. Location wasn't the best and the metro is expensive.

    Great hostel! Really well located close to the station and in the city centre. Super friendly staff and good facilities: Irish pub downstairs and nice beds to sleep in. Only do not forget toput in your ear plugs since it can be noisy.

    This is a great hostel to stay at if you're traveling as a group. If you're traveling solo, you won't meet anyone here. Yes there's a bar downstairs, but it's often full of random tourists looking for an Irish pub or to watch sports. Bathrooms are okay but ran out of toilet paper each day I was there. Showers are cleaned often. Dorm rooms are kind of cool. Not typical bunk beds but kind of pods that give lots of privacy. Door to street locks but is often propped open.

    Location, definitely the highlight of this hostel, they give you a padlock and you have your locker underneath your bed. shower was terrible, not enough water to take a decent shower and water smells quite bad, you don’t get much of facilities since you have to pay to use the lockers before check in and after checking out, they give you a breakfast discount, and you don’t have any space to prepare your food or cook your meals on a microwave. I would look for another hostels next time.

    For the price of this place, I did not enjoy my stay. The biggest issue I had was twice during the night, staff used their master key to open the door and look in our room. No knock or hesitation. I do not feel that is right. Also, the window would not close, so we could hear everyone on the streets loud and clear as well as the bell ALL NIGHT. Otherwise, the location is fine as well as the staff. Better off going to another hostel of the same price in the same area. There are plenty.
