Staff tried to overcharge us.
No lockers to leave valuables in.
Rooms tiny- beds crammed in so you couldn't move between them. Everyone had to sit on beds to let someone out or to bathroom (which had no lock).
Took us hours to get ready in the mornings as only 1 person could dry their hair at a time as there was only 1 plug socket and no space to stand, so we had to go into the corridor to give them space.
Noisy room- backed onto busy road. So hot/ stuffy/overcrowded that we had to sleep with window wide open.
Breakfast ends at 8.30 which is awful if you're out the night before.
Bathroom was at least fairly clean but rest of hostel was falling apart.
Extremely steep stairs to get in so very much not suitable for less able travellers.
I've stayed in lots of hostels of varying quality, and when you look at say the Wombat Hostel in Berlin which is like a simple hotel with lovely rooms and staff compared to this, there is no comparison! It's no wonder hostels have such a bad reputation with rubbish like hostel Janson.
On the plus side, Amsterdam itself was amazing!
