I realize this is a budget hotel but I've gotten great deals before without sacrificing basic quality. This hotel was disgusting. The rooms were tiny, I could touch both walls with my hands extended, and the walls were paperthin. I was put in between two couples travelling together and got very little sleep, even with earplugs. I could hear every word they said. I could also smell every joint they smoked - which was apparently at an hourly interval. I have no problem with people smoking pot but it was pervasive and constant. The only ventilation was achieved by opening my patio doors, which opened onto a common patio so it wasn't feasible for me, a solo female, to leave them open at night. Thus, despite the moderate temps outside, I slept in a very warm, pot-infused, noisy environment. Had it not been my first couple of nights after landing, I would not have slept at all. The breakfast was so-so. The management and other staff were not particularly helpful in that I was not offerred any assistance in climbing the crazy steep Amsterdam stairs with my luggage. The room was filthy - hair on the walls, debris on the floor, let's not even talk about the sheets. The common toilet and shower were slightly cleaner but not by much. I will never stay here again and will steer people clear of it when possible. So, if you're looking to save money, this might be for you, but I imagine there are better deals out there.
