The hotel is very central - really good if you're just off the train and have no idea where you're going.
There is a really nice pub downstairs, all the staff were very friendly. Toilets and showers are shared with other guests on the same floor but we hardly noticed anyone else using them, and as they were kept in great condition this wasn't really an issue.
There is also a very friendly cat which is very fond of people who dislike cats... which was pretty entertaining.

the hotel its self was very good in a great location handy for trains & trams & bars & sights your left to do what you want no staff pestering you in the early morning one fault of that was we didn't get a change of towels all week!!!!the only other main complaint I have is that its says breakfast IS included!!!!but it turns out that if you want it you've got to pay 5 euros each for it so think that should be taken out of advert for the hotel!!!!but on the whole will def stay there again!!!!!!

If you're looking for a thrifty hotel located next to Central Station, yet off the beaten path, look no further. The Old Nickel is a classic Dutch building with a classy pub and private/dorm rooms. The rooms and lavatories are kept clean and the staff is welcoming.

A very central no frills hotel. Staff were very friendly and helpful and the landlady was a diamond. The room was small but they all are in Amsterdam and all in all for the price I paid it was pleasant and adequate with the added bonus of being above a lovely pub !!.

Maybe if I were with some friends, and on a trip to party I would've liked it.
But I went with my boyfriend to visit the sights, so this was a poor choice.
The room had 4 single bads, and I had to double check to make sure it was not a shared room.


Pros: It's super close to the train station, so if you are backpacking using trains, this could be an advantage.
Also, I saw many complaints on the reviews about noise, but during my stay I had no problems with that.
