I really liked the friendly atmosphere and the fact that despite downstairs there were always a lot of people and music, the room where very silent. It is a very-well organized hostel, with various attention for host who are used to travel (ear plug, towel, breakfast available for free or for few euros)
I was in a 14 bed room and the lockers are only 6 out of 14. Despite this every bed had a basket under the bed, where you could put your staff and lock it, but your objects remain visible. Anyway, I would just appreciated that everyone could have is own locker for the valuable objects.
1) Good location - Rijksmuseum and Concertgebouw are within 10 minutes' walking distance.
1) The room is very small and crammed so it's not easy to find your way through the piles of neighbors' stuff. 2) WiFi could barely reach our room (our room was on the first floor) - so the internet was pretty slow. 3) The place is quite loud - even in our room we could hear shouting and noise from the pub downstairs. 4) The kitchen is tiny and badly equipped - even two people will find it difficult to cook there at the same time. 5) Three small fridges are definitely not enough for such a big hostel (there are 4-5 floors, each floor has several rooms and 12-14 people in each room). It was hard to find a place for our food. 6) Two out of three small fridges were not working at the time when we arrived. 7) The kitchen closes at around 10 pm and opens very late at 13:00 so it's not possible to cook your own breakfast. 8) You can't easily get access to your own food when the kitchen is closed because all the fridges are in the kitchen. 9) Somebody ate our food - so not all the people staying in the hostel are decent and honorable. 10) Overall the place is tight and usually crammed, definitely not the best place to relax.
Helpful and friendly staff. Great location. Fancy interior. Clean showers and toilets. Electric plugs for all beds. Lockers in the bedrooms.
Beds are too short for tall people (+180cm). No free lock provided (you can buy one there).
People are pretty nice here but no elevator makes me so tired
A really good relaxing bar/chill area, really made my first night in Amsterdam!
Nothing, for a hostel it was very good.
