Wow! But not in a good way. 9 lads on a Stag Do.
As soon as we turned up the staff used the 'you owe us more money' routine. We argued only to get the response 'you're not in England now'. 4 Euros later we went up the three flights of 10cm deep steep steps to be greeted with the hottest, cramped, bunk bedded room. Shared floor bathroom which someone had vomited in (warm sick smell, nice). We literally used it to keep our bags in for the weekend.

HOTEL... NAH, Was sent off down the road to another building that was falling down inside and looked like something from a horror movie. Stayed on third floor which was half done to a poor standard, and the builders was on the second.... great to hear heavy machinery so early in the morning. Dangerous, unsightly, on top, misleading, dusty, and overall "PROPER SHADY"

Room Tip: Don't get one.

Quite a few of us stayed here.

It was good enough. Big room, ensuite toilet.
Bunk Beds..

What more could a stag do want?

Good location, only a short walk to anywhere or the tram.

The property was clean and the staff were helpful.

Having read reviews about this hostel beforey trip to Amsterdam I was very skeptical about staying here. It was however a pleasant place to stay. You do get what you pay for; cheap accommodation in the centre of town. Yet, the room was clean and refreshed every day and shower worked perfectly so no major complaints. The overall interor needs an update but who spends that much time in their room anyway? Cannot comment on breakfast offering as didn't use this service. Overall, cheap clean rooms fit for purpose and would stay here again.

Very bad experience, there is no elevator, the employees are rude, dirty, there are mice, the only thing that can be rescue is that the location, but there are better hotels around. Unpleasant experience, never again.

Room Tip: Try to find another hotel.

Hotel? It can't hardly be called a hostel. We booked a night here, stupidly not checking tripadvisor. When we arrived they wanted us to pay an extra €7 as they didn't have the triple room we had booked. We refused, and the guy behind the counter (it can't be called a reception) made it seem like he was doing us a favour in waiving the fee and giving us a quad room. After walking up to the fourth floor, each one getting progressively worse, we arrived at our room which smelt of damp and god knows what else. We left as soon as possible the next morning and booked another hotel.

it's in a good part of town, but I'd recommend going further out to get a decent place to stay.

Room Tip: Don't book here.

Stayed there for a couple of nights with friends. The rooms were quite bad for a hostel and the shared bathrooms were flooded. The most annoying thing though was the Indian guy at the front desk who was unbelievably rude for no reason.
