Overall the hostel is very nice. They have real cooks in their kitchen so the food is amazing. Only problem was the bathroom is a bit tight and the floor becomes very wet after showering. But the areas were always kept very clean.

Brilliant location. The view over canals and towards bridges was superb. The USB sockets, lights and power point in each bed was a plus. No wifi in the breakfast room is a minus. Nevertheless, I highly recommend this hostel. It is clear that the owners invest a good percentage of income back into the hostel. Signs in the bathrooms to inform that the squeegee is for wiping the floors after showering! This is not obvious to most folk.
