Bobs youth hostel was the worst experience of my life, I came home with serious bed bug bites from the hostel, it was very unclean and our private room was intruded by bob himself waking us at 2 am without apology! The room was abysmal, there was a hole completely through the smashed window, the window wasn't able to be opened also due to reducing noise for neighbours. Nothing good to say, wise comment on the wall of our room saying, ' I'm sorry you ended up here' which was very appropriate!

I organised a class trip to Amsterdam and we were on a budget so ended up in Bob's. Staff were accommodating we never had any trouble checking in our out with a large group. We had two dorms to ourselves one for males and one for females. It worke out well - seemed pretty clean from what I remember - we weren't there much. It is your typical youth hostel with old bunk beds but the location was pretty central so it worked perfectly for us!

This place was TERRIBLE! Everything was dirty and smelly. The toilets were clogged. They never provided any soap or something to dry our hands. No kitchen. Room smelled like sewage and there were bugs in the shower and sink. They don't change the sheets. WORST HOSTEL EVER.

Stayed here with 5 mates in a private room, greeted by an extremely unhelpful/angry man who sent us to the other part of the hostel. No receptionist to greet us in the other building, room smelt vile for the duration of the trip, sheets had stains on price is acceptable but not for the service we received. Pictures don't accurately represent the rooms. STAY CLEAR OF BOB.

Not sure whether being uni students had lowered our quality of living or people stayed in a different part to us but 8 of us stayed in a 14 bed room in the building round the corner from the main reception (this part did look nicer). The room was clean, bathroom was better than expected and beds were actually comfy! Wifi worked about 70% of the time in the room but perfectly at reception. The location is the best part about the hostel, we didn't pay for public transport once and were in walking distance to Anne frank, stedelijk museum, vondelpark, central station, sex museum and plenty of places to eat. It's €10 per keycard and €10 per locker key, lockers are large enough to fit suitcase so definitely worth it, we got money back no problem.

The only main issue was that considering there were 2 plugs for every bed, between the 8 of us we could only find 2 working plugs in the whole room. We read a review that said it was difficult to find working plugs so we just brought along an extension cable that helped. We arrived at 9am but told we couldn't check in until 2pm, which is annoying but not really their fault and we were allowed to leave our bags whilst we explored.

A member of staff came into the room at about 10am on one day to kick some people out and started cleaning around us which was a bit unexpected. We had food and drink in the room (we didn't see the notice on the door about food) and he got quite angry and started taking photos although nothing came of it. Recommend hiding anything like that to avoid trouble ..
