People need to stop moaning about this place. We paid 20 euros a night for this. It's in Amsterdam, which is expensive in itself, where the next cheapest would be about 30 euros per night. Plus they don't ramp up the prices over the weekend. As a budget hostel, what do you expect? The receptionists were ok, but the entry system is crazy as they have to let you out and back in again, so make sure you keep on their good side. Good location close to a few decent clubs, and only about a 20min walk from the railway station. Rooms were basic, beds were average, toilets and showers were rubbish. Evening meals for 6 euros were fine, large portions and actually quite tasty - surely better than eating out at an overpriced tourist restaurant that'll rip you off, of which there are many in Amsterdam. Wifi only seemed to work in the common room, but once you're down there you really shouldn't be on your iPhone as there's loads of great people there to smash on with. It's a budget hostel, if you can deal with a few unimportant problems then stay here. Otherwise, book a 50 euros a night hotel in the city centre.
