Die Mitarbeiter waren sehr nett und zuvorkommend. Man gab uns günstige Park- und sehr gute Restaurant-Tipps.. Die Lage ist genial. Wegen der vielen Einbahnstraßen hatten wir zunächst Probleme, die Jugendherberge anzusteuern. Handtuchhaken oder Stangen im Bad wären wünschenswert. Das Frühstück hätte ein wenig abwechslungsreicher sein können, aber alles in allem waren wir sehr zufrieden und kommen sehr gerne wieder.

Renovations were being conducted when staying there but staff managed well around them. Staff were helpful when requesting assistance to store luggage. I found it hard to find the hostel when walking from Dampoort station, I got lost though I was fairly close, so some Hostel signs particularly on the main streets would be beneficial. Some staff availability (permanent staffing of a reception area in late afternoon and 7am to 10am) would make it easier for guests to ask questions about the area.
