The rooms were Ok but smaller than expected. The corridors smelt of smoke. The rooms were not as clean as I would have hoped. The location, although not far from the Lelylaan train station (2 stops from the airport) and 200 m to a tram stop and 500m to the far end of Vondel park, was in a weird situation of mixed business district, empty lots and residential blocks - no atmosphere at all nearby - but that is modern Amsterdam I suppose. it was still 3-4 km from the centre of Amsterdam requiring a tram trip in daily, kind of fun anyway - get a day pass on the tram cheaper - the centre, museums, cafes, canals etc is where we spent most of our time. But that's what you get for a budget price. I thought it was odd that the manager told us we MUST wait at the desk for 15 minutes to check out whilst she conducted the daily meeting with cleaning staff - this was a little inconvenient and more so for some who might need to make train connections, but not a show stopper. OK stay - but I would stay closer to the centre and spend a little more to do it.

service in a 500 year old church (English Reformed Church) was a member of the church and sang in its choir, and encouraged us to also come to the carols by candlelight (although
she did highlight the fact that their wasn't going to be a sermon).

... He's making announcements like, "When you leave the bus, make sure you take all of your belongings. Otherwise I will find them and sell it. Whatever it is. Your bag, your half-eaten sandwich..." or, "If you find any Australians, make sure you take them off of the bus with you. I always find them left over after long journeys, those Australians. They fall asleep everywhere. Then I steal their weed". It was extremely entertaining to say the least. We arrived at the hostel at ...
... later, even at the moment our legs are so sore. After training we walked back to the room for a shower and head out for dinner. (Total of 7km walking half of which with dead legs haha)
we had an amazing dinner near Dam square at a restaurant called Cao (I think from memory)... We had delicious pork belly and grilled veggies!! Plus to finish I was naughty and ordered a Cornflake sundae....I know that ...
... It was so much fun! The food was delicious and the scenery was incredible. We had heard that Amsterdam was best seen by water and it was easy to see why. The houses that line the canals are stunning and I really wished I could just pop in and take a tour of one of them! From the boat we could see beautiful chandeliers inside these homes that just looked so pretty! Should you imagine yourself living in one of these beautiful homes ...
