Accommodation generally seems quite expensive in Amsterdam so my friends and I booked an 8 bed dorm in this hostel for the weekend.
Rooms were basic but functional: hot water in the shower room, plenty of plug sockets, shower, sink and toilet all separate (important when sharing with others) and comfy enough beds, although it was annoying having to make your bed on arrival.
The staff at the hostel were friendly and helpful. We bought tickets for some of the museums at reception and this got us a discount and fast track queuing, which is great for the weekend queues! You can also rent bikes from the hostel, although we didn't do this.
Breakfast was simple but tasty. Freshly baked bread, meat, cheese, cereal, jams and hot drinks. The queues were very long though so it was worth getting up a little earlier to avoid the 9.30 rush.
The location was also great. Vondel park is huge and lovely to walk around. Easy walking distance to all the main attractions too.
Overall, it was a nice enough stay, but I think next time I visit Amsterdam I would rather pay a little more and stay in a hotel room as I don't think the prices were competitive enough here.
