    Could not have been better located. Helpful staff, wifi was available all over the hostel, nice bed, bathrooms were super clean. Stored my luggage after checkout. Very steep stairs, but this is something you will find everywhere in the canals.

    I've stayed in the hostel for only one night, and it was a pretty good stay. The rooms are okay (bunkbed), there are sockets, a lot of things are provided or can be purchased (like towels for 2€). The shower was it bit weird, because you had to place your clothes and towel in a common part, because they would get wet if you take them with you in the shower... But I would recommend the hostel.

    The floors in our hostel were rather dirty but beyond that everything was clean. The kitchen is a sink, microwave, and fridge so cooking is challenging. Nice smoking room. Wished the showers had had hooks in them to keep clothing from getting wet. Would stay again. Affordable enough but pricing went up drastically on weekend nights which seems to be an Amsterdam thing.

    Awesome place to stay in Amsterdam! Cheap in comparison to other hostels in town, the beds are comfy and the staff very friendly and helpful. The room apparently had one power outlet, which I couldn’t find. But I would leave my stuff charging at reception with no issues. In a great location, 5 minutes walk from the airport bus and in a great neighbourhood with lots to see and do, then about 30 minutes to the red light distict.

    Staff and guests were all nice and the hostel is in a very good location! There’s opportunity to smoke inside and buy all kinds of sanitary goodies if you forgot yours at home. I gave a medium rating for facilities, cause there were only two chargers working in the room for six people.

    Very Good

    Overall it was ok. Good just to sleep or for one or two nights. They should really check their doors, because even if you try to close the doors quietly during the night, they slam and wake people up inside the dorms. That was my main problem during my stay, I wasn’t able to sleep very well. For the rest, no problems.

    Very Good

    Great location, clean and lovely staff. However, the shower facilities are very annoying, small (felt claustrophobic) and there is no where to put dry clothes or even your towel whilst showering where they won’t get wet. Also not the best atmosphere, so it would be hard to meet others if travelling solo.

    Shower water is extremely hot. Do something about it. I have seen more comments regarding this problem.

    The staff was very nice and the location as well. But the bathrooms and showers were most of the times very dirty and there were only two located on each floor. Beds were uncomfortable. All in all we expected more for that price. Too expensive for the low standard.
