Stayed here with three teens, thinking that a four bed room would be cheapest option in Amsterdam. I wasn't very transport savvy, so it was a real trek from the station. The room was basic, the shower hot and powerful, but not that clean. Food options in the restaurant very limited, but plenty of bars/fast food/cafes near by. The Euro is definitely not in our favour at the moment, so we ate cheaply and not particularly healthily at local venues during the day. The breakfast was standard Dutch fare, lots of bread, cheese, cold meats, but included, so not bad value. No tea or coffee making facilities in the room. Going to the park by the hostel killed an hour people watching. It was an OK experience, but don't know whether I would repeat it.
