    Great place near most famous museums, but a little bit far from the center. The place is great and the atmosphere is great.

    The room was comfortable and clean. The lockers were significantly small. The staff was significantly helpful and welcoming. Hot water and clean bathrooms. The location and surroindings are very calm. It's 30 min walk to the city center, 10 min walk to the Van Gogh and Rijk museums. The only thing I really didn't find so good was that they charge you to keep your bags after the checkout (e.g. our tickets were late night on the checkout day). It's the first hostel that I find that does that.

    Hostel was in a nice location, near the museum district and food places. Beds were pretty close together in the dorms, which was fine as I was travelling with friends. Staff are really lovely and helpful- also cute hostel cat. Dorms were clean and beds were comfortable. One big downside is that there were hardly any bathrooms for the whole place. Lots of people in our room stayed out late- so this place is good for a weekend away with friends, but probably wouldn't stay for another reason.

    the location is amazing, but the hostel is too small. There is no kitchen to cook. The common space is very small as well (fit only 4 people on the table). The staff are kind.

    The location of the hostel is nice. The rooms were okay. The bunks are stable, even thought I felt a bit unsecured about the fact that they don't have "protective bars", and I personally loved the mattress. I have to complain about the internal bathroom of the rooms, in my opinion they deserve a remodeling. It would be also nice to add more surfaces to help people to put they phones charging and so. In general, it was a nice experience.

    The rooms were very small. The lower bed didn't had enough height to sit as well. The 4 bed room was very small. Heating was not working well. Overall it was not a good experience and worth for the money that I paid

    This hostel is bare bones and not worth the money at all the staff are friendly and professional though but still kinda doesn’t make up for the lack of space cleanliness and amenities.
