if you want to have a nice time in Amsterdam, stay anywhere but not here.We went there because of the nice rooms. But it´s the loudest place you can imagine. And that´s only the smallest problem. The owner, Marcel, seems to be a nice person, at first. But he is someone you should be warned of: he is totally choleric. He got a fit of rage, came into our rooms and screamed at us. Only because a friend of ours visited us the night before in our rooms for two hours. He waited with us to catch his plane at six in the morning. Marcel wanted twenty Euros for the extra person staying there (for two hours!). We even gave him the money, but he didn´t stop yelling at us, repeating over and over again that we didn´t obey his rules. We asked him to leave the room, but he didn´t. After this incident we decided to leave his place . We asked him to give us the money back for the night to come (we had payed the full amount upfront). But he refused. Marcel just threatened us to call the police. He is by far the most offensive person we´ve met during our travels.
