It is true that this hostel is about twenty minutes from the city by train, but the station is five minutes walk away and with a week train pass, it's no big deal, especially when you take into consideration how NICE this place is...
Everything was clean, the beds were fresh and comfortable, people were quiet and there was a great common room with movies and books if you want to be up.
I only have two small criticisms for the hostel, the first is the showers don't drain well and water gets all over the floors thoughout the bathroom, the shower stalls are a bit awkward....for a few days (I stayed a week) this was no big deal. They did seem to run out of hot water when busy!
The other issue is that they won't let you do your own laundry for fear of someone breaking the machines....I didn't think this was a problem until I came back from my afternoon out and found instead of keeping my laundry locked up in the closet they'd put it back in my room on a chair...so some of my nicest clothes were,of course, missing. :( so if you have them do your laundry make sure they keep it locked up until you come back for it. I think this was a little thoughtless on thier part and really sucky for me because I lost my lucky sweatshirt (given to me by a good friend)...
Ok aside from that this place is really great! Amsterdam can be nuts for hostels so this is like a little piece of nirvana, a place to escape to when you need peace and quiet.
