First of all i went with one other friend there, the staff were very rude and looked like They hate his job. When we was in the room two guys told us that they were leaving because yesterday they slept there and woke up filled with bug bites. They ask for their money back but people in reception did not accepted that bug infestation even when they show their marks. We still slept there because we have already payed. And in the next day morning guess what, all the people in the room were with huge bug bites and there were blood marks in the sheets. Actually one guy told me later that he has recorded a video in Youtube showing the bugs running out of the lineen that of course was reported. So think twice before going there!!!!!!

The location of the hostel is good, not far from most things. The sheets and bedding were clean which was good. They gave you a free map aswell.
The bad things were the amount of really steep steps up to the room, the bathroom REALLY smelt, it was soo bad! Also, you have to give a deposit for the key and the reception was closed when i was leaving so i lost out on the money. Also, the bar opposite blazed loud music until really late at night.

This hostel was nothing special. It was pretty expensive, but the location was fantastic. Literally a minute away from some of Amsterdam's best nightlife. Very close to the tram if you need it, but there really is no need. Anne Frank House and The Heineken Factory are about 10-15 minutes away by foot. About a 20 minute walk to the Red Light district. Very nice location but the facilities weren't anything special. In fact, the shower in the en-suite was just a spout. No kind of indent in the floor to catch the water or curtain, it was sort of just...there. There were lockers in the rooms but they were still in the boxes they were delivered in. If you can find a cheaper place to stay I'd recommend that, but if all else fails, this place isn't terrible. The stairs were a bit dangerous too. Very narrow and on a steep incline.

Place was exactly what we needed. Were only in Amsterdam for the one night, and knew we'd spend most of it out on the town so all we were after was a bed for a few hours. It was very cost effective and did exactly what we wanted it to. There were four of us, we were all in the same room and there was a toilet and shower nearby. It was fine for what it was, but don't be expecting the Hilton.

Stayed in for 2 nights with friends but would definitely not recommend this place to anyone. This place was wet, not clean at all (I even wonder if blanket are changed after the check out) and dangerous socket to plug your stuff in. Didn't even tried the breakfast. No curtains, noisy streets (well that not the worst). For this price you can find far much better in AMS.

We stayed 3 nights at hotel Granada in October 2008. The worst hotel I have ever stayed in. The place is an old building with four or five floors. The first one has the reception and breakfast lounge; the rest of the floors have 3 rooms each, one shower and one toilet (absolutely tiny). We booked the 6-bed room, which was the smallest. The other rooms of the floor were bigger, I assume there could easily be 10-12 beds, that is, kind of 30 people for each shower (it was better not to think about it) Rooms were filthy, there were stains on the mattresses, no wardrobes, bad smell... Only the location was positive. And the staff, who was quite friendly too. All in all, I would not recommend it in any case.
