something more special
amazing place to stay, but the walls to the corridor are thin so if your a light sleeper you'll be woken up in the morning.

Thoughtful hostel
I think I would have enjoyed this hostel more had I not read raving reviews first. I enjoyed this hostel and the staff and neighborhood are nice. The Wi-Fi situation was irritating. But all and all a nice place to be to getaway from the crazy Amsterdam prices.
