The location of this hotel is OK, but there are several things which I think that the hostel needs to improve.
-First of all, I booked this hostel through hostelworld.com. I have booked this way many times while travelling, and in the past have simply paid a 10% deposit and then settled up upon arrival. What BTI failed to tell me was that they were going to try and take a 'pre-authorization' sum and hold onto it until I checked in on my first night. I didn't mind, but really wish this had been made clear to me before I booked, which it wasn't.
-The dorm was very dark, with only a small window. It got very hot at night, and we could only open one side of the window. The beds themselves were nice, but the temp of the room made it quite uncomfortable.
- On our final night we stayed in a private room with an ensuite. The ensuite had mouldy walls, and was very poorly designed; when we tried to take showers, the entire room flooded.
-Finally, there isn't really a common area in the hostel, which is a real pity.
The staff were friendly, and the breakfast was OK. I just think that for the cost per night, this hostel needs to be a lot better. I have stayed in other places in Amsterdam that give you a lot more for your money. I wouldn't choose to stay here again.
