i stayed at the amsterdam hostel in september for 5 nights.
Firstly i ordered a mixed dorm of 6 people and for 4 of the nights i was the only girl in the room with 5 other lads. this wasnt a problem for me as i was comfortable, but for other girls i suggest booking mainly female rooms if you would have a problem. also when i got there i couldnt tell which bed was free and the blankets and sheets were screwed up on the bed. i didnt realise there wasnt a quilt untill about 8 o clock, i went to the front desk and they were unable to help and said i would have to wait untill the next day to get a quilt and offered me another set of sheets instead.. luckinly it was warm so i didnt need it.
the bathroom in the hostel was lovley, however there was so much shower jel and empty pots that were left there from previous users ( understandable as the cleaners may not know whose is whos)
the breakfast was nice, plain, it was pancakes, (you have to cook youreself) however little space and you coulve been waiting a while to cook them, the staff in the kitchen (cleaners) are foregin and often talk in their own language so hard to tell what they were saying however they seemed displeased that i was still in the eating area outside after the kitchen had closed, and was moody when i baught my plate in.
the other staff on reception were lovely and eager to help you out with what you wanted
i would stay here again because overall the places and the cost were satisfactory (as i was traveling and wanted to save money)
hope this helps
