Reviewed 28 August 2013

Did I mention there was dark matter smeared on the walls in the bathroom ? You have to be STONED to be able to crash in this dump, i would expect to pay no more than €5 a night for this room like this then I could understand it...the bed was like a giant soft sponge and practically sank to the floor when you try to get on it,either that or you were rolling off! the bed linen was white and clean looking but the pillow and duvet underneath was stained with god only knows what. The giant windows were really filthy and not been washed in over 7 years id say, it looked as they were smeared with mud deliberately and they couldn't be opened, this added to no ventilation = stale air .. Yuk! The bathroom had dodgy shower curtains and mad shower heads. I did not unpack because I was truly scared something might crawl into my bag. Stay here if you want to find out how low you can go ... Despite all that Amsterdam is a fun place and I'll be back ..only in a top hotel next time

The hostel (since I refuse to call it a hotel) is located in 2 separate buildings so standards might probably vary...
Nevertheless: the hostel is partially in renovation and for example there was bo water in one of the bathrooms. The windows open in only some of the rooms, so it's hot, stuffy and so on. Defonately no air conditioning.
The worst part was the hostel cancelled our reservation without any notice and althou we ended up arguing ourselves in anyhow, we has to pay more cash not to be homeless for the night.

Room Tip: Choose another hostel.

Well what can I say about the Maar-Nix. Fantastic hotel/hostel. Friendly staff, speedy check in, even got a discount at check in. Highly reccomend the Marnix stairs experience. Air con, safe balcony with view and spacious rooms with dressing area. Choice of various showers. Wake up siren. Will be booking again for next year.

Wow! But not in a good way. 9 lads on a Stag Do.
As soon as we turned up the staff used the 'you owe us more money' routine. We argued only to get the response 'you're not in England now'. 4 Euros later we went up the three flights of 10cm deep steep steps to be greeted with the hottest, cramped, bunk bedded room. Shared floor bathroom which someone had vomited in (warm sick smell, nice). We literally used it to keep our bags in for the weekend.

HOTEL... NAH, Was sent off down the road to another building that was falling down inside and looked like something from a horror movie. Stayed on third floor which was half done to a poor standard, and the builders was on the second.... great to hear heavy machinery so early in the morning. Dangerous, unsightly, on top, misleading, dusty, and overall "PROPER SHADY"

Room Tip: Don't get one.

Quite a few of us stayed here.

It was good enough. Big room, ensuite toilet.
Bunk Beds..

What more could a stag do want?

Good location, only a short walk to anywhere or the tram.

The property was clean and the staff were helpful.

Having read reviews about this hostel beforey trip to Amsterdam I was very skeptical about staying here. It was however a pleasant place to stay. You do get what you pay for; cheap accommodation in the centre of town. Yet, the room was clean and refreshed every day and shower worked perfectly so no major complaints. The overall interor needs an update but who spends that much time in their room anyway? Cannot comment on breakfast offering as didn't use this service. Overall, cheap clean rooms fit for purpose and would stay here again.
