The hostel is a bit far from the tram stop (8 min walking) but I don't mind walking. Since is a little far from Amsterdam City Center you can sleep well without the busy city noises. The hostel is big, it has a lot of areas, including a garden! My room was very spacious. There are vending machines to purchase water (2 euros, 500ml) and snacks.

The bed I was in had bed bugs. I spoke with the front desk after a very itchy and sleepless night. He lead me to believe that I would get a full refund and told me to speak with the manager. I spoke with the manager the following morning and he very rudely told me I would get a full refund but I would have to leave the hotel. I explained to him that I did not want to look for a hotel last minute since it would cost a lot more money. He said he didn’t want to keep dealing with me complaining about bed bugs. I explained to him that I wouldn’t want to keep staying there if I continued to see bed bugs even after switching beds and linen. He agreed to refund one night although he tried really hard to get me to leave the hotel against my will, he said I could stay but would not receive any further refunds even if I did see bed bugs again. Spoke with Orbitz customer service and they did nothing about it either. So I definitely will consider other travel sites and try my hardest to avoid Orbitz in the future

Nice lobby however, the room was not clean; when I woke up there were bugs on the wall.

Meet great people at hotel from other countrys perfect for traveling alone

Large hostel with large common spaces, interesting decor, reasonably clean. Location is so-so, about 10~15 mins walk from nearby stations. Rooms were pretty hot as there was no way to control the temperature and the windows could not be opened. Also, the room I got had very awkward and limited power outlet placements. However the beds were clean and comfortable, and bed frames were sturdy enough that bed does not shake like crazy every time somebody clambers up or down the ladder, which is a good thing. Wifi was available throughout the hostel although the Internet connection was pretty slow inside the rooms. The front desk receptionists were cheerful and friendly, however the guy manning the breakfast buffet table in the restaurant was pretty surly and rude. All in all, I've had better hostel experiences elsewhere for half the price but considering that accommodation seems to be pretty expensive in Amsterdam this is an okay choice if you don't expect too much.
