    I liked the place for its location and the people's in reception, they are generous and kind. It's next to Van Gogh museum and tram stations are like in 5mins walk. There are good bakery shops nearby. The bed were comfortable and bathroom was well maintained also. Simba is cute 💟

    Im not a constant hostel person but i did enjoy my stay. The location was great - still city centre but not too crazy hustle and bustle. The staff was really nice when I checked in pretty late. I appreciate the WiFi all over the building and not just in the lobby (like other hostels). The room was real small but it was fine and the bed was decently comfy and sturdy, didn’t move around or squeak a lot. Nice security features but bring your own lock. No common space which is a bummer.

    + Fantastic Location by the museums + Knowledgeable female staff + Clean Bedding and floors + Good Wifi + Sinks are in hostel rooms + Good lighting + 24/7 and no curfew - Washrooms are too small for a hostel - Too many beds crammed in once space - Half the beds didn’t have ladders, so you had to use a stepping stool and pull yourself up - Beds shake a lot. You can feel every tremor when your bunk mate moves around. - Kitchen consists of a fridge and a sink - No comfortable seating

    The hostel is a bit far from the central area but near to some important museums like Van Gogh and Rijksmuseum. The rooms and washrooms are a bit small. There is no big common area, but there is a little kitchen. The staff was very caring and helpful! My bedspread was dirty but the staff provided a new one in five minutes. They also helped me with directions and provided first aid to treat a coffee burn.

    We stayed in an all female dorm and felt safe and comfortable but the hostel is dead when it comes to atmosphere. It’s fine if you’re travelling with a friend but if you’re young and solo there is zero opportunity to meet people because it has no proper communal space. The staff however are lovely and helpful and the location is good, very close to some amazing galleries and authentic coffee shops.

    We decided the last minute that we would go, it had one of the cheapest options with one of the best ratings still available (6.9). The rooms were a bit too small and could have been cleaner, but it was acceptable. We spent only the nights here sleeping, the common place with kitchen could have been a bit bigger as well but as it was usually empty it was ok. The price was good, but the room was a bit crowded, we shared a 6 bed room.

    Great location, very friendly staff (the Thai girl who works here in particular!). However the rooms are extremely small and there is not really a common room to meet new people. No atmosphere at all!

    Most of the former negative reviews were true, but I had an especially unfortunate experience with a drugged out dude in my mixed room who made the night miserable. Other than the location and the kitty, there was little value for money at this hostel. There is no kitchen, no common areas, there aren't enough bathrooms for the number of people in the hostel, the water lasts for 10 seconds before you push the button again, it's cramped, and the hostel is no frills/no amenities included.
