Liked: Staff & service
OK but a little sketch
The ladies that work at the cafe are nice. Bed is too short for anyone 6 ft 1 or more. Way too many Morrocans just hanging out near the exit and entry at night, they are not hotel guests. My roommate would turn the light on past 10 and perform 1 of his 5 daily prayer rituals which was just a little bit off putting.

Make the bed and give me a towel
I like generator hostels generally. This was good overall but I do not want to make my own bed! And please provide a towel. If you can do these things in Miami you can do them in Amsterdam
