“The most depressive place in Amstedam”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

The horriblest hostel I've ever seen. The smell is insupportable, I had to cover my nose with a towel because I couldn't even breath. No place to put the luggage and no possibility to open the window. The most depressive place in Amsterdam. I won't be back there anymore.

We arrived at the hotel , and got into our room to find we had been given a bunkbed room when we asked for a double. The staff are polite and the hotel was fully booked but they manage to find us a double room. THE STAIRS are steep, so if you can't walk up stairs don't go their. we were on the second floor and out of breathe by the time we got to our room. The hotel is clean , and if you just want a standard bed for the night is good.

Location is near Leidseplein Square which is a great place for youth. The hotel staff were friendly and so helpful. Tram is everywhere and noises from it can really disturb your sleep. Toilet and shower are found outside the room. Breakfast was free! Wifi is also free. No elevator and good luck if you are travelling with lots of luggages. A great price for backpakers!

If you're looking for somewhere really cheap and you're pretty easy going, then this place isn't too bad. Don't expect everything to be working or the rooms to be clean or you will be very disappointed. Our room stank when we arrived, the shared toilet basin was blocked, only one of the two showers worked, our window wouldn't close and it's a really noisy location. If you're travelling on a budget thought and you don't mind putting up with these things, then this place isn't bad. Personally, I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Try and choose a room facing away form the main roads

Only one working shower, very dirty, watertaps are loose, staff not very herlpfully. It is also very noisy because of all the trams that pass by.
Breakfast is quite reasonable.

Absolutely not recommended!

When you pay 5% of what hotel Hilton demand. You can not expect hotel Hilton. The hotel has a nice location. The staff is friendly. And the breakfast is good. The rooms are old but clean, and you share toilet, shower and bed room whit others.
