    The rooms and bathrooms were clean but very small and there is not a lot of communal space. Located in a nice part of Amsterdam, close to the museums and the staff were very nice (especially when I called in to make changes to the booking).

    You should change the sheets. We saw how a couple of germans left and at noon new guest arrived. They slept on the same sheets.

    I was upset that the hostel charged for everything on top of the booking fees and the city tax was charged separately.Otherwise, it is alright although a little cramp. So it would not be suitable for people who are claustrophobic

    I must say the lady at the front desk was amazing, very informative and kind. The room was nice the only complaint I would have to say is room 310 has bed bugs. Stayed in a female only room with 3 other girls. I saw some bed bugs crawling on the sheets when I woke up. I have so many bed bug bites all over me. This is something I would want to know before booking.

    The place was overall quite nice. It was a very basic but had all that it needed. The sheets could've used an up-cycle, but apart from that its perfectly decent.

    The rooms were okay, but there definetely weren't enough bathrooms for everyone. You'd always have to wait in line for showering. The kitchen is tiny and there's no common space to hang out with the other travellers, really hard if you are travelling on your own! However, the location was excellent.

    I had an ok stay, it depends on your needs. It takes about 20-30 mins to get to the city centre. The room was very small and stuffy, and therefore difficult to be quiet in when coming in late. There are no sockets at the bed, but overall enough for everyone to charge their phones. It was a bit difficult to get up and down the bed, as there was only one step ladder for three bunk beds. The wifi was good. Luggage storage after check-out was 3€ p.p.

    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!

    A cheap and cheerful hostel .The bed linen had holes in it and the pillows and duvet were way past it . Glad I took my own sheet . The room was small for fitting 4 people in and a bit claustrophobic. . The bathroom was adequate . Coffee machine , horrible coffee , but there’s a nice cafe down the road . Not sure about security people left things on their bunks , I didn’t .. it would only take one person but that’s the risk you might take ....

    It was very basic and very cramped in an 8 bed room. There was no atmosphere so not good if you’re young and want to have fun. The lockers were very small. The room had an en-suite which was a plus. The kitchen was very basic. You could leave your luggage but they charged.
