Run-Down Hostel But Gets The Job Done
The hostel is definitely outdated and in need of a renovation. The hostel has the vibe of a dive-bar, including the bathrooms which were sticky and kinda smelly. The showers had good water pressure, but the half the stalls/shower heads were broken or out of order. The bed was actually very comfortable, but our shared room and only two windows were directly adjacent to the smoker patio, so the room constantly filled with the smell of cigarettes including our clothes. The lockers adjacent to the bed were made of wood and were basically falling apart; anyone could easily break it out if the wanted to. The key card system, however, to get into the hostel and room felt really secure and safe.

Great place!
2 mens + 2 womans bathrooms on main/ground floor. Only 1 bathroom for both genders for all of 1st floor but surprising, it was empty most of the time when I needed to use it. At least 3 bathrooms on 2nd floor. Thought pool table was free. It's $2/game. :( Bring your own face towel. They only rent bath towels ($3 but give your back $2 when you turn it in).

Lot of fun staying here, great area, good people, loved the bar. Some of the toilets ran out toilet paper rather quickly through the day so that was a bit of an annoyance but aside from that great

Good location
Great location downtown Amsterdam although I think I like the location of the uptown one more. There is an awesome smoking room but there is not enough space for all the guests so I wish this were bigger.
