I spent the summer bagpacking Europe on a budget, and stayed in a fair few hostels, but this one was in a league of its own. The room was absolutely boiling with no means of cooling it down, which meant lying awake for the majority of the night (despite being ridiculously stoned). The shower had packed in, and the place stunk. The service was abysmal, with everything obviously being too much of an effort for the staff. The atmosphere was somewhat added to by a box sitting in the common room entitled "Free dirty clothes". Far from a hippy commune, this was quite simply a hell hole.
To add insult to injury, it was the most expensive hostel we stayed in all trip, absolutely no idea what planet these muppets are living on.
Visit Amsterdam every year, and would cross the road to avoid this dump.
