Me and a friend went here at the start of backpacking through Europe, so we were on a budget however it wasn't too modest. The accommodation was one of the cheapest we found, so it does seem €33 is allot for a hostel but others were much higher. I'll get to the basics I wanted to know as a first time traveller.
Location: 30 mins from central station walk, 10 mins on tram. Don't be fooled by the "central station" yes it is the centre however this hostel is right next to Van Goch musem, Vondlepark and another few good places so it was very central if you don't mind the initial walk.
Bed: bed is a bed. That's all we wanted travelling. Clean enough. Only problem is there was only one extension lead in the middle of the room, which meant however unlikely theft might of been you couldn't charge your phone etc over night. You had to sit at stare waiting for it to charge as it was right next to somebody else's bed. We learnt through other hostels they all had plugs and little shelves etc next to beds which was definitely missing here.
Breakfast: tea or coffee in and all plastic cup, hot floppy bread and jam. The usual
Bathrooms: toilet, sink and shower in room room and three of these, one for each floor. Never had a problem with being busy, bit cramped and not as clean as a hotel (and for €33 it is like a hotel) but is as what you would expect.
I would stay again if this place wasn't in Amsterdam, which cost an arm and a leg. Staff were friendly enough. And there was a cat.
