I stayed at Hotel Hortus earlier in March 2014 with 13 other friends from university, having headed to amsterdam for a weekend seeing Fall Out Boy live and also several members of the groups birthdays.
Price - the price is reasonable especially for us as students which being on "student budgets" speaks for itself really
Location - the hostel is outside of the centre of the village, yes amsterdam is a village not a city, as we were informed upon arrival, anyways due to its village status you can imagine the place is rather small, and it does live up to that expectation! so whilst the hostel is outside of the centre it is literally no more than a 15-20 minute walk from amsterdam central station.
Rooms - we stayed in a 6 bed room, a 4 bed room, and two twin rooms for the two couples among us. the two larger rooms had showers of there own, whereas the double rooms had to use communal showers, which were perfectly fine regardless. the beds are pretty comfy, and a towel each is provided. each room has a smoke detector, which if set off we were warned is up to a 200 euro fine, but if you use the windows in your room it should be fine :)
Breakfast - part of the stay included breakfast which mainly consisted of bread for bread or toast, with various toppings provided to use, cooked meats, boiled eggs/fried eggs, and cereal, as well as tea, coffee, juice and water.
Facilities - the hostel also has a pool table, and sofas, and wifi that is free to use. you can also hire bikes to get around amsterdam if you wish.
Owners - the owners are lovely and very helpful, including helping mark places on our map to see and try, they can also help in booking stuff you may with to do whilst in amsterdam.
overall it was a great place to stay and i would highly recommend it. I would definitely stay there again when visiting amsterdam in future.
