Booked this hostel for 3 nights, wanted to stay here due to it being very central and within walking distance to most attractions, i.e. anne frank and van goghs museum. My friend and I (22 and 23yrs old both girls) were not sure what to expect of this hostel as there was mixed reviews on here. I myself have never stayed in a hostel before so it would be a new experience for me anyway. We arrived and were placed in the back room (cave) there was not one single window and the room absolutely stunk of a mixture of urine, alcohol and weed. As there was no ventilation the room was always smelly, very dark and unpleasant. The telly did not work and breakfast was 3euros (not clear when booking) breakfast consisted of bread, cheese and a boiled egg. It really is right in the middle of the brothels, sex shows, if this doesnt bother you, which to be honest it didnt me it was okay. The area is always busy so we did not feel unsafe. The shower also smelt very bad which put me off even going into the bathroom atall. On the last night I was soo relived to be coming home as I felt sick from the smell all through the night and the temp of the room was ridiculous..even in winter. I would not stay here again. If your after a bed in a dingy room then your ok. I did not expect much from a hostel but would not stay in this place again.( looks like your walking into draculas house )
