“fantastic location, friendly staff, decent hotel”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

From reading some of the reviews on here I was slightly worried about this hotel, however I really shouldn't have been its a really friendly place, for the price one of the best locations you will find, of course its not like the Ritz but its a one star hotel in Amsterdam, so what do people expect? the down side is yes the toilet isn't in the room but we had the 6 bed bedroom and it was literally as soon as you walk out your room to the right so that didn't make a difference at all really. If your going with your mates its a fantastic place, and I would recommend it.

Great hotel situated right in the middle of Amsterdam's bustling centre! Was a 10 minute walk from station (be warned about bikes and cobble ground nightmare for wheel suitcases!) arrived 8am and greeted by Manager (can't remember name but looks like Mario!) great guy very helpful and no problem checking in. Rooms were very good size ( 3 guest) shared bathroom was initially a concern but turned out fine very clean and plenty between all floors. For what we paid considering it was also very busy period (weekend after queens day and eve of Remembrance Day) only paid €300 total. Defo recommend this place for it value but also close proximity to Dam Sq, RLD and all else the city has to offer. Also lovely cat called Guinness and smoker friendly!

5 flights of very dangerous winding stairs..with a reluctant manager ..who didn't want to help me drag my bags up...the place was in a great location...but I'd never stay there again. over priced!! I'm a 60 year old woman in great physical condition....and even so....this place was very over priced for what I got..the directions to get there were a nightmare..The location was the best part..

OK if you are on a budget, the bunk beds made a terrible squeeking noise, these need replacing. However the staff are very approachable, very laid back atmosphere which is perfect if you don't like the hustle and bustle of the standard hotel feel.

Pool table with seating area was a good touch.

We had a shared shower space which given it was shared, smelt clean and looked desirable. Although the toilet area needed a bit of TLC.

Overall a good place to stay if you are not too fussy with minor faults.

Note to management - Clean the toilets a little more often in and around the rooms. Maybe an air freshner would be a nice touch
