Clean, tidy, welcoming lobby. Knowledgable, friendly staff. Basic but comfortable room. Price. Breakfast!
Not enough mirrors. There was one mirror in the shower room of a 10 bed dorm - not great for 10 girls!
The Bulldog was central and easy to find. We used a 10 bed dorm which was basic, clean, tidy and comfortable. The rooms are non-smoking so smell fresh and clean. Smoking is allowed in the lobby and lounge area.
The lobby was clean and tidy with a lovely little cat. It had potential to get very crowded if lots of people were checking in/out at the same time.
The lounge was a like a pub. Clean and tidy, reasonably priced drinks (hot and cold). Food was available to buy but I didn't eat there (noodle bar - Wok to Walk on the way to Rembrandt Square is FAB!). In the corner there are sofas where you can sit and watch a DVD - with subtitles as there is music.
There is also a roof terrace which my friend went to but I didn't. She said it was lovely
Breakfast was served in the lounge and consists of usual dutch things - bread, cheese, ham, salami, yoghurt, granola, juice, tea/coffee. All good to fill you up for a day of trekking.
There are cheaper hostels in Amsterdam and hotels that are probably nicer but more expensive. This one is a very good price and very comfortable. I will definately staying here again!
