Spend 2 nights in a 6-bed dorm.
Location: A very centrally located hostel. Every major sight is within walking distance. Also walking distance from the Central train station. Very big plus point for a affordable price in Amsterdam (things are not cheap there).
Pros - The room was sufficiently cosy, not too squeezy for 6 people. They had nice comfy pillows and beds (better than many hostels I've tried). There was even a basin in the room (however, it only had cold water).
Cons - The stairs up to the hostel reception and the rooms were very steep and small! Not suitable if you are carrying big bags or luggages. Maybe all places in Amsterdam are like that (bcos we went to Anne Frank's House, and it was like that too). There isn't much of a common space other than a small seating area for morning coffee / tea.
Staff / service: The staff were really friendly and nice. Normally, coffee / tea would be served from 7am. One morning, we had to leave early, at 630am. And when I spoke to the staff, he said he would wake up early just to make our beverage for us. That's really good service. Also, they provided a free map of Amsterdam (maps cost $ at the tourist info offices!). And, one of the staff also gave us tips on what time to visit Anne Frank's House to avoid the crowds. He was right - and we ended up first in line!
Oh and as a bonus, you'll get to meet Simba, the cute little resident cat in the hostel. :)
Overall, great staff, nice rooms, best location. My only little gripe is that the stairs are really steep and squeezy - not suitable for heavy bags or people who cannot walk in small stairways.
