I really did not enjoy being inside the Heart of Amsterdam hostel. Out of all the hostels I've stayed in it stood out as one with the darkest, quietest (in a bad way), most cramped-feeling rooms, least friendly service, and (no fault of theirs I know) least friendly roommates. I literally felt uncomfortable any time I was in the room, trying to be maneuver my bags in complete silence by the light of my personal bed light, and conversing in whispers with my traveling companion. I can't comment on the cleanliness of the room but it was kept dark enough that it felt dirty anyway. Without fail there was always someone asleep at the various times of day we stopped in. Luckily it DOES serve its purpose as merely a place to stop in, get a couple hours of sleep, and get the heck back out to all the sites of Amsterdam easily walkable from your room.
Pros: 1) Location(!!!), as long as the red light thing doesn't bother you, you really can walk out your door to dozens of bars etc, and minutes to Dam Square, Central Station and really in such a flat city, any site you want very easily. 2) There were 2 passably-clean bathrooms for our 8-bed dorm, so little to no wait time. 3) For Amsterdam, the price probably cannot be beat! 4) The breakfast was fine, I booked online and it was included, I would say worth it even if you do have to pay the 3 Euros, but maybe that's only if you steal a purse full of snacks like I do.
All in all not a "pleasant" experience but good for my purposes and good value for the money in a relatively expensive city.
