        You are instantly hit with the smell of weed when you walk in. There is two seperate buildings to accommodate guests. We stayed in the building that is not attached to the reception and I was glad about this because the guy at check in wasn't that friendly. As to be expected the layout of the hostel had many STEEP stairs so I would'nt recommend walking down them in heels or under the influence. The room was fine,four of us stayed in a room together so we had privacy. There is a shower in the room but the toilet was out in the hallway. My friends had been to Amsterdam twice before and said that this was definitely the nicest hostel they had been to.

        As you walk into the hostel you notice the thick film of smoke in the bar area downstairs. The vending machines are all broken. Then I headed up to the 16 bed dorm the shower was quite good (but only one between 16 of us). Also there is one toilet and a sink with no soap. There are no bed lights and the only power points to charge electronics are downstairs - where you have to inhale the smoke as you charge. No kitchen facilities are available. If you want a cheap, central place to crash it is fine. Otherwise I would skip it.

        Whilst Fi went to Delft to sip tea and swim in a sea of Delft ceramics I hired another bike, Rusty the Red, and cycled out of town with Marcie and Jorrit. She was a blustery day and the 25km on my wee bike was an effort. It was well worth it to see the little villages and finally find some cows! I had wondered where they hid, given the huge cheese …

        ... were going to be ok with the Nazis being in power. It wasn’t until they started really started persecuting the Jewish community and manipulating the big guys in government that they started to try and fight back.
        It doesn’t seem like it is a very well know museum, but if you are ever in Amsterdam, we would highly recommend this museum. Jer and I talked a lot about how fortunate we feel to have never lived through something like that. ...
