Reviewed 16 October 2009

We were treated to very nice service at all hours of the night.And yes the bar is open 24hrs!
The breakfast was more than I expected and there is a nice nook with a view of the canal.
Its a great location as far as sightseeing,shopping and nightlife.The red light district and train station are only a short cab or trolly ride away.
Ask for Hans.He gave us a great rate.
Thanks again Backstage.

Easy to find. Very friendly and helpful staff. We travelled with our 1 yr old and they were very accomodating. The bathroom was the only neg. It was shared. The toilet was one tiny room and the shower was a different room down the hall. Beware of door being unlocked but someone being in the shower. It was clean though.
There wasn't air conditioning at the time we went but nights got fairly cool.
The bedroom was clean. Hotel was pretty quiet except for our crying baby-oops!
(We were the only ones staying with a child.)
The location was awesome -rent bikes! You will definitely want to tour with bikes.
The internet use was great to stay in touch with our family.
Overall this hotel was a great fit and mid-budget for Amsterdam.

This is the most amazing hostel i've been.
Me and 4 friends stayed in a room of 5 and it had the best beds. Space enought for what we expected, we all loved the decor, the heiniken welcome pack, the view from our window to the canal... Only the stairs were quite a challenge when we return at late hours. But we recommend this place to everyone, great location, not in the center and therefore quite but close to one of the main nightlife places. The staff are 5 stars, really friendly and helpful.

Traveling in Europe with 3 boys, all over 6', and with huge appetites can be expensive! This place was a great find! We were all able to sleep in ONE room, we all had beds and there was still pace to walk in the room!

Musical stuff every where -- very fun!

Staff was super and very helpful.

Located on a canal and within walking distance to various kinds of transportation.

Breakfast had a great variety and filled the boys.

Parking was located a bit away, but my husband and son were given bicycles that they rode back to the hotel. It was a positive experience for them.

Over all a great place to stay!

Only negative -- this is supposed to be a nonsmoking hotel, but I think there was people smoking in their rooms because we could smell it, we just couldn't pin point the location. It would be nice if the staff were more vigilant where this is concerned.

We stayed at the backstage for a weekend in Amsterdam and the location is excellent. Its right next to Leideseplein, and you can reach the clubs and museums within mins. The staff was helpful, and use of the computer was free in the lobby. The bathrooms were shared, which is annoying, but the twin room was a good size with a flat screen tv.

I stayed at the Backstage with two friends to celebrate our 40th birthdays, we are all mums travelling on a budget who expect a nice clean room and bedding, we got that plus more. the staff were great, very friendly and helpful, and the rooms and rest of the hotel were perfectly clean, and a brilliant central position.
