    When I stayed here it was rated a 7.5 which I cannot understand after staying here myself. The location is incredible, the hostel was really clean, the beds were comfortable, staff was helpful. There weren't organized activities like pub crawls so that's a negative and there weren't a ton of outlets in the bedrooms. Otherwise a great hostel!

    Very cool old building, great location. Having a few basic travel necessities on hand for sale, like toothpaste, is a great idea. Friendly, helpful staff. Would stay again.

    No where to hang your towel when in the shower so it gets wet before U even dry yourself off. Lucky it was cool while I was there, would be cooking in those rooms if it was a warm day and fully booked. Location close to trams, easy access to wherever you want to go and food and drink close by in light square.

    This hostel was in such a great location that I wanted to be out all day anyway, but other than that it didn’t offer much. Hard to be social with such a small communal area, but the smoking room was nice. Uncomfortable bed in kind of a dreary room, but it was clean. Also the doors to the room slammed extremely loud which made it hard to come and go regularly.

    Lots of people stay here, so the door is consistently opening and closing, which made it easy to come in or leave, when sketchy characters did come in, the hostel did remove them right away, however. Stayed in an 8 mix dorm room, but was barely in there, two bathrooms and one shower per floor. (I didn’t really have trouble getting in there). The location was great and was within walking distance to museums, and Centraal station. Reception was helpful and I was able to print my train ticket.

    Old furniture, very late check-in and early check-out which is uncommon when compared to the market. The night price we paid is actually for ~ 19 hrs. We also suffered from noise coming from other rooms/floors. No-noise policies aren’t really enforced

    The location of this hostel is its only good feature. The staff that works during the day it nice but the staff that works at night are total pricks. When you walk into the hostel you will have to climb an almost %100 vertical stair case, I’m traveling with a backpack so it wasn’t a huge problem but I saw others with suitcases and it was nearly impossible to get up the stairs. I stayed in a shared room of 8 and out of the 8 beds only 2 had electric outlets and the shower didn’t work.
