If your writing a bad review of this place you probably havnt stayed in the centre of Amsterdam before, if your wanting a textbook hotel experience, stay in a textbook hotel, not the middle of the red light district. The LOCATION is AWSOME, and thats all your really wanting for your stay in a city where there is so much to do, all within walking distance. Yes the stairs are steep and you can smoke in the rooms (good or bad, depends if you smoke or not!) and it will probably be a bit noisy at times but thats the heart of amsterdam for you! I would recomend this place to groups of friends wanting to stay together, if your trying to impressive the love of your life your going to have to splash out a little more and get an apartment or big hotel

Stayed for 3 nights over the weekend and thought the breakfast, staff and cleanliness of the place was spot on. Just watch out for steep steps and marjuana smelling rooms.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the top floor for cleanliness if you can get there at the end of the night. :-)

The worst experience of my life. I just about managed the ladder type stairway to doom and gloom and after one look walked out. There was not a toilet anywhere near the several rooms that end of the building, a disgusting shower cubicle on the stairwell with a sliding plastic door no privacy obviously it becomes the toilet for the several rooms. The room had no sink, mirror or anything to make your stay remotely pleasant. It should be classed as a DOSSHOUSE for vagrants at best and closed down. This is the worst accommodation I have ever seen, my money has been lost as they charge the first night which was our only night, I had to pay to stay elsewhere. When booking this accommodation it was not rated a one star hotel, the average rating on feedback is a 7 which all in all puts you off the scent of this being truly sickening.

Room Tip: Do not book this hotel the rooms we had were in a very dangerous part of the building at the back no...

The staff were very friendly and always round to help. The room was excellent for the money we paid and although the toilet and shower were shared with 2 other rooms, we never saw anyone else at all. The hotel was easy to find and was in a great place, situated 10 minutes from the train station and a walk down the road to Dam Square and also very near the Red Light District. Overall, very impressed and would definitely come back.

This is a cheap, basic hotel right in the heart of Amsterdam, minutes from the famous cafe - The Grasshopper. Staff were very friendly and helpful.

I would not recommend this hotel for people looking for a quiet night, but who goes to Amsterdam for that and stays in a 1* hotel?! A lot of these negative reviews are from people who seem to have booked the cheap option without properly considering the implications of this.

If you're looking for somewhere to crash with a few friends whilst experiencing everything Amsterdam has to offer then this is somewhere I would definitely recommend. I am intending to go back to the 'Dam in the next few months and will not be looking further than here to book.

This place is pretty junky and run down, but since it was during the IBC convention I had no choice. Good for smokers and people who like the red light. Anyone with hopes of a "nice stay" should consider elsewhere.

Staff was good though.
