Good location, only 15-20 minutes to Leidseplein (centre of town) by tram/bus which was located very close to the hostel. No shops/eateries nearby. Owners were pleasant and helpful. Beware of city tax (an additional %5) that is not clearly stated on the booking! Rooms on the otherhand were very very basic to say the least. We stayed in a twin bed room with an ensuite. Beds were very small, even for a 5ft tall asian woman! The toilet was in the shower, literally...meaning when you showered, the whole floor to the bathroom/toilet was wet, very inconvenient. Our room was very small and always had a musky smell. Bring your own sheets...as we found a few drops of very suspicious red/brown coloured stains on one of the beds. Pillows were filled with what we thought were small pieces of foam. Perhaps request a room that is not on the ground floor, or better yet...don't book this hostel at all!
