The staff here are a bit hit and miss, some were dull but many were helpful and friendly. We'd booked a 5 bed originally but cancelled one and got given a room with two other boys. We preferred a room to ourselves or with girls and luckily got that! The rooms had three double beds and lockers. You get a...

Stayed here 4 nights in both dorm and private rooms. Hostel staff were very unfriendly and unhelpful, could not care less about customer concerns. Hostel was relatively tidy but rooms were badly cleaned. Corridors were really loud all night and the whole place smelled strongly of weed, despite the supposed 'no weed in the hostel' rule. Clearly no thought had...

Apart from the location, everything about this hostel is shocking. They advertise that they are proud to be a simple, no frills hostel which is fine, however i would expect the rooms to be clean, the staff to be friendly and helpful and the breakfast to be served on time (i.e. for morning of check out). This was not the...

Coming to this place I didnt expect much considering its a budget hotel but what we experienced was disgusting. First of all, we had A MOUSE in our room and it seems nobody from the stuff cared about it. Like it was normal, they didnt even apologize. They were rude and not helpful. I expected loud hotel, dirty bathroom and...

I'm really sorry your stay completely didn't meet your expectations. Athough I think you knew a little bit what to expect. Concerning your first point: there are so many mice in Amsterdam. So many buildings, the old ones in the center, have this problem. So to be honest, this doesn't really has to do anything with us. Ladders are coming...

I stayed here with my boyfriend for a few nights and we loved it, it is what it is! It's very central, very basic but it's all you need. The staff are very friendly and helpful.

Room was very plain and simple but great for what you paid. Location is fantastic and within 15 mins walking distance to the center & everything you need. There is a huge amount of brochures and recommendations of things to do in the lobby. Staff were relatively friendly and a lady at the front counter in the morning gave me...

I stayed there for 5 nights in a 6 beds room with private bathroom. The rooms were comfortable and clean (warms, and comfortable beds too), the people in reception are amazingly friendly and helpful, people in the bar (which is one of the best thing in the Hostel) are really funny and likeable. Even though the last days, the hostel...
