So, for the location, this place is amazing. Literally, right in the middle of the red light district and easy access from the train station (and airport).
However, even for hostel living, this place had a lot of draw backs.
First, it is a hostel. So, you can expect the crowded rooms of about 6-10 people, the cheap rates, a dirty bar and a 2 euro breakfast of toast and a slice of cheese. But, it is also one of the worst hostels I have stayed in while traveling around Europe. As mentioned earlier, most areas of this hostel seem "dirty" and the bathrooms look as though they could be harvesting STDs. The showers, while also dirty, do not even perform their functions of providing you with hot water. Which, I thought to be a little off setting for a hostel in Amsterdam; i.e., this is not the third world. Though, considering how you spend most of your time in the area, you have no problems - and no problems were incurred - sleeping in their sheets.
