The good... Near a tram stop. Near one end of Vondel park. Price average. Staff friendly. Nice coffee. Beds comfy. free mints at the counter Woohoo.
The bad... seemed to be stuck out in the middle of nowhere and beside busy road. Surrounds were desolate. Lots of construction about. Room small. Stairs, hall, room all smelled of cigarettes. Coffee and tea was short and not replenished. Room could have been cleaner. Was told to come back to the front desk in 15 minutes so i did not disturb the daily housekeeping meeting.
Make up your own mind.
I would stay closer to central Districts next time even if a bit more expensive.

Having fallen asleep during the welcoming speeches last night, I opted out of dinner, retired to my cabin and had a great 8 hours of shut-eye. Been up since 4:30 drinking coffee with fellow early birds. Lots of interesting things planned for today so later.........

... how children inherit their parents' DNA, etc. In true Amsterdam fashion, however, the museum also contained a section devoted entirely to sex, complete with a detailed explanation of "French kissing" and little wooden figurines depicting every sex position in the Kama Sutra plus videos of every animal mating (the kids were deliberately steered away from this section). Not exactly what we expected to see in a children's museum, but I guess it's all part of ...
... were taking a train to the Hague where the UN is located, which is about 40 minutes out of the city. We had to go through security and they checked all of our identifications. We met with the Special Rapporteur on Human Trafficking. I think he thought that as American's and 9/11 we must be very concerned about safety, because he kept emphasizing that the Department of Justice and Department of Defense were also located in this building and that there were very strict ...
... around jumped up on my table and then made herself comfortable on my lap, helping me to warm up after being cold and wet.
When I got back to the hostel, I checked the sightseeing itinerary I had, going in the opposite direction. It was actually going to the Anne Frank house which was open until 9pm. I headed off again - this time with an umbrella - and with a sightseeing option in mind. It took longer than I'd planned to arrive, since I had to stop for Dutch crepes and ...
... trendy areas including the Jordaan were just steps away.
What a find, the only draw back that there were no elevators and it was 37 steep, steep, steep stairs to reception! Luckily our room was on a lower floor and we only has to contend with 17 of them on regular basis.
We enjoyed our time walking the canals, being overwhelmed by the number of bicycles in the city. The approximate population is around 800,000 and we think everyone uses a bike ...
