I spent 2 nights in Hotel Croydon with 4 friends and it's fair to say that we were a little worried after we had read the reviews. I agree that maybe the place is a little run down and the stairs are very, very steep so it wouldn't be ideal for those who are travelling with children/a lot of luggage. But given how cheap the place is, I do think it's good if you're just after a place to sleep whilst visiting Amsterdam. The location really is amazing, right in the middle of everything and although the rooms were basic, they did have lockers, which is one of the most important things for me when staying in a hostel. The staff were all very friendly and we got some vouchers for waffles in the shop next door which was great!
I don't think Hotel Croydon would be a great place if you want to plan to spend a lot of time in the hostel. But as a base to explore Amsterdam it really isn't so bad!
