Stayed there with 3 friends in a 6 person private dorm. When we arrived the room was spotless,new sheets,swept floor.and the shower room as clean as you would ever need it for 5 nights. Shared bathroom with another dorm which at times could get a bit smelly but never to a stage where it was uncomfortable to use.
Lockers are provided in the dorms that are big enough to fit a medium sized suitcase inside so security isnt a problem. You have to pay a deposit for the lock and key but you could just as easily bring your own.
Location wise,Bobs is literally 5 mins away from the central station, we were put up in the second building on the street behind bobs, great location overall. Beside the front you have '' The Doors'' a bar/coffee shop that plays old school rock and roll all day,not the best atmosphere in Amsterdam but its dark and dingy charm certainly grows on you as other coffee shops in Amsterdam can come across as pretentious as 5 star restaurants. Service good,beer good,good times. The dam square,red light district and many other attractions,pubs,restaurants are all within close walking distance.
Back to bobs, Yes, staff are quite laid back and arnt as attentive as a five star b&b but when i came down to it and we needed to stay another night in a room that was already booked they did everything they could for us and ended up sorting it out perfectly.
If you are young and not obsessed with clinically clean surfaces and want a decent place to stay run by good people then this will be for you, Had one of the best nights of my life in bobs smoking free-ly and drinking the REASONABLY priced beer.
Only thing id complain about is the bread and hardboiled egg breckfast..cmon bob!
