Positive Reviews

Good Location

The hostel is located in a nice location in Amsterdam as it is across from a tram stop and very short distance from the long-running zoo. The central part of the city is not too far and can be easily reached with a public transport. There were also plenty of shops and restaurants.

Common Kitchen

Most guests enjoyed the fact there was a common kitchen available for guests to use. They could cook their own meals and meet other people while saving some money.

Friendly Staff

Most guests felt the staff members were friendly and courteous to them, they were able to give directions and help with most queries. They were easy to talk to and guests felt at ease taking to them.

Negative Reviews

Small Rooms

Some guests felt the rooms were too small and stuffy to be considered part of a comfortable stay. They thought the number of beds exceeded the space available and at times the shared bedrooms were too cramped to have any peace.

Bad Bathrooms

The shared bathrooms part of the deal is not a pleasant one for many people, but at least the guests expected the bathrooms to not feel so stuffy and smelly. The cleanliness was questionable and it seems shared bathrooms have to be cleaned twice a day.

Run-down Place

Guests understood they were paying for hostel amenities, but some felt the price paid was too much for what they received. It seemed the hostel was too run down and forgotten as the small details added up. For example, wires hanging from the walls, stained walls and lights that didn't work.
