I stayed twice at Bob's Youth Hostel. First time I decided to visit Amsterdam at the last minute and needed a budget place within walking distance of the train station, second time because I knew the hostel and liked it...
Both times I ended up staying in the 14 bed female dorm, which was fine and seemed clean. The room was big so there was space for everyone. Both the lockers and the shower worked fine. The dorm was quiet on both stays so I can't complain.
Breakfast was included and served downstairs in the bar/reception area. Though quite basic it was ok.
The only things I didn't like much back then was the smell of cigarettes pretty much everywhere in the building, as the doors to the bar/ reception stayed open most of the time. Also in the morning we got the cleaning team (all males) coming into the room without warning... Other than that I had a great time at Bob's Youth Hostel. The bar downstairs did a good job for a few drinks and to meet fellow travelers. The location was nice - just a 10' walk from Amsterdam Central station and quite close to downtown as well.
