Very clean, with friendly staff
The toilet was absolutely tiny!
Really good option for visiting Amsterdam
There were 3 bunk beds in our room. We were a bit taken aback as not stayed somewhere like this before, but the beds and pillows were super comfortable. Coffee always available and access to basic kitchen allowed.
It was basic, although they do not pretend to be anything more. Slight unpleasant odour from the shower drain.
Staff was responsible
Friendly helpful staff. Our room had a door opening to a small balcony that provided a small private outdoor space. The extra air flow on hot nights was good. Free breakfast and all day tea and coffee was great. Great value accommodation close to tram stops.
