Read loads of reviews that slated this hostel but i ignored them as it was so cheap and booked it anyway. SO GLAD I DID! For the money it is in a brilliant location, 10 min walk from central station, 10 mins from the red light district and 15 mins from Rembrantplein! I will admit when we got on board i though 'i cant live in such a cramped place!' but when you get used to it its fine. The rooms were tiny and if you're tall theres no chance you can stay there but the beds were really comfy, the rooms were warm and the toilets and showers were spotless. Breakfast was really nice and there was lots of it. Plus as it was such a small hostel you got to chat to all the other guests and mix with them. The staff we're so helpful and nice, they'd sit and chat and recommend places to visit and even lent my friend a towel because she forgot to take one, and when we missed breakfast on the first day they made up tea and coffee and got us cereal so we wouldnt go without.
Another good point was we could sit up on the deck in the evening and have a drink with a really lovely view of Amsterdam and all the boats in the dock, i honestly couldnt recommend this place enough, its a unique place to stay and i'd def go back again!
