I have just come back from a 1 night stay and, as a single, male traveller, it was OK but not for any longer.
It's location is the 1 plus point, being only 5 minutes from Centraal Station and within walking distance of Dam Square, Jordaan and the Red Light District. I was given room 6, on the 2nd floor and it had 4 beds in it but no-one else was sharing. The bed was comfortable enough, and the linen looked clean but the carpet and walls were dirty. The toilet was in the hall but I had a wash basin and the light above the basin was working. I did not try the TV, so cannot say if it was working, or not.
The stairs leading up to the rooms are very narrow and steep, as with many places in Amsterdam, so heavy bags or mobility issues would not be good in this place.
I skipped breakfast so, again, cannot comment.
Overall, not the worst place I have stayed but not worth 58 euros for the 1 night.
The staff were polite, if not overly friendly and they looked after my bag, as I could not check in, straight away.
