Besides the usual travel advice and nice service, one of the employees help me out solving an issue I encountered in recovering my ID I had to leave in Amsterdam. He shipped it to my US address without asking for anything in return. Details that make a difference in your overall travel experience :D

I stayed in a 6 person room for three nights and the shared bathroom was not cleaned once - there was men's hair all over the floor and the toilet was dirty. The staff made me wait for 20 min to check in, the entire time while they just sat and chatted with eachother. The location of the hostel was... More

We wanted to have our accommodation close to center. It is near the Centrum. It is very close to everywhere. The breakfast very bad. We received just peanut butter with jam and coffee or tea to drink. But this was one thing we do not like. The room was very clean.

Don't stay here ever. The hostel smells in general, the sheets and bed covers don't seem like they have been washed in 3 years. You have to pay extra for everything- for a key to the room, towels, to leave bags during the day after checking out. The workers are creepy and rude. It is a good location, just stay... More

The location was awesome if you want to be central to night parties and cute restaurants in one of the main squares. The staff were so sketchy and I did not feel safe there at all. There's nowhere to put your stuff and the building is really old and not well kept.

Also when I initially booked the room for 10 lads 3 months before the... More

What a dump!! Ripped off on arrival by a pair of con men. The place stinks and makes you want to itch (probably the mangy cat that was occupying our cell during the night) toilet broke so one of the desk numpties used a pillow case to mop up. Cannot stress how bad this place is, simply not worth paying... More

Dirty, loud and uncomfortable. I would never recommend this hostel. If you are staying there, don't forget an earplug, the street is really loud. Despite the problems, the staff were really nice and friendly.
