Best choice for a solo traveller
a perfect place for a solo traveller. Keep in mind that the building doesnt have lift... so you have to drag your bags threw a small stairs... the reception people were supper friendly. they help you with any kind of information or problem. Best part was the bar and the smoking room, people mostly spend their time in those places... its a great place to meet new people. I was there till 2-3 in the morning everyday. they have activities everyday from 8-9pm with happy hour drinking... very close to the city centre. the bed was comfortable and i was in a 14 bed dorm. Other guests were friendly and didnt make noise when others were sleeping. Toilets and shower room was very clean and if you find them dirty just tell them, they clean it asap. overall a very good place to stay if you are travelling solo or with friends.. supper friendly environment...

8/10 Very good

I've been curious about hostels forever. I'm about 3 times the age of anyone else staying there, but it was okay. The bed was comfortable, which surprised me. People were also respectful of each other and their property. The staff was very helpful indeed. I never got the Wi-Fi hooked up, but I didn't want to do all the stairs again once I got to the room. I left my Kindle in the room. When I realized it, I called, and they held it for me. When I got back I told them they were my heroes.

2/10 Poor

Worst hostel in Amsterdam
Terrible service at check in. I requested a bottom bunkbed and was told that I got one. Once I get to the room which is a steep climb to 4th floor (!!!) it's actuallhy a top bed. When I mentioned to the front desk she said they're completely booked. She never told me what the wifi code. I had to ask my roommate. But then the wifi is completely not working on that floor
