I stayed for 3 nights with my two friends in a 6-bed dorm room (female only). The room was spacious enough with lots of natural light (and good black-out curtains!). The private bathroom was very nice and cleaned every day to high standards. We got clean towels every day on our beds. It honestly felt much more like a hotel than a hostel. We were very happy with the room, location, breakfast, and free wifi. The location is great with access to many trams that go to Dam Square, Central Station, etc. The only downfall of the location is if you are out late at night near Central Station, it will cost you 15+ euros to cab back to the hostel. Same if you have an early morning flight on a Sunday (trams don't start until 7 am).
Unfortunately, most of the staff working at the front desk are not very helpful. If you ask them for suggestions or directions, they just keep staring at their computer screen and give you one-two word answers that get you nowhere. Also, we could only pay on one VISA card when checking in because our booking for three was together. Other hostels I've been to had no problem in splitting up the total cost between the 3 people on different cards. So that kind of screwed up our finances for the trip! If you are looking for a fun hostel where you are going to meet people, this is not your hostel. There is no bar or pub where fellow travellers can mingle or really a common room to hang out. It is a good hostel if you are with friends already and want a nice clean hostel to stay in!
