The receptionist was very helpful and fun along with the rest of the staff. The hostel is located in the RedLight District which is very interesting and fun. The rooms were nice and clean. Most of all it was reasonably priced!

The staff are amazing. There are people from all over the globe coming together to stay and experience life. Exactly what I wanted with my 3 friends (age 20) on a weekend away in the glorious Amsterdam.

The hostel was located right down town so it was within walking distance of everything! The rooms were average however you did need your own lock for the lockers which were metal bins under the beds. The rooms were clean as were the toilettes and showers.
