The one good thing about this hostel is the location, but even that isn't great. The reception staff weren't very helpful and one day I walked down to hear a screaming match between 2 staff members. Amsterdam offers 3 night time activities, a Bar Crawl on a Wednesday, Beer Olympics on a Friday and Awesome Foursome on the Sunday, but the staff members are clueless about the events in which they advertise. I went to the events on both the Friday and Sunday and loved both events. If you're wanting to stay in a hostel with a lively and friendly atmosphere then don't stay here, stay at the Green Tortoise, they have events on every day and night, and they really encourage people to socialize.
Another complaint is the fact that I booked a four bed dorm, and one day I went out to return to a mattress in the middle of my room and another person staying there. It would have been nice is the staff had actually told me about this.
