This place is by no means a hotel but when i visited after reading the reviews on here i didn't have high expectations it was the cheapest i could find at the time.
The bedding i had was clean and made for the day i arrived it was the same bedding i had for the 5 days we were there. Personally i don't see this as a problem tho It wasn't like i was sharing my bed with anybody...I didn't experience the breakfast as was never up in time for it but one of the people we met said it was okay in comparison to some of the other places he had been staying at.
If you are visiting amsterdam for a "dirty" weekend i couldn't recommend the place more. It served the exact purpose that me and my friends wanted, as in just a place to get some sleep, also there was a Small flat screen in the Room which helped us get into the Mood before heading out. The 10 Bed Room was also great there was only 3 of us in out party and every night we met new people and had an absolutely awesome time with those people.
there was a tram station right next to the hostel and also the Heineken Brewery was a 5 minuet walk. To Dam square it was about a 20-25 minuet walk which i do recommend this is also where the Red Light District was :D... The hostel was also in easy walking distance from other centres of night life i.e Night Clubs. Taxis were never that cheap but from the RLD it cost about 8-10 Euros usually split between 4-7 depending on who we were out with not too bad... I also would pursued you against getting a taxi from the airport as it would cost i think between 40-50 Euros which we almost paid mind as we had no idea where we were going :)
Overall the place was exactly what me and my group wanted it was pretty enjoyable open all hours and the staff gave directions no problem
Also a vending machine in the lobby gave out cans of Heineken which i thought was awesome :D
And they had free Lockers downstair which were very useful :)
