Being budget travellers, me and my boyfriend opted for this hotel because it was the cheapest considering the privacy we would get (versus a hostel).
The rooms are very small, but functional - there were two single beds put together (which was a bit of a hassle since one of us ended up sliding down the crack between the beds), a small desk, a tv and, in the back of the room two comfy chair with a view to the little garden in the back (the room was in the basement). They had scent of dust - which i assume is from the carpet, but a cracked window solved the issue.
The bathroom though was very weird. It had a toilet and a sink. And when we looked for the shower, we noticed a pipe coming up the door where we found a shower head. At first we thought it was kinda funny, but not as funny when we tried to shower - everything got soaked wet (except the toilet paper which was strategically placed under the sink), so don't place stuff there you don't want to get wet.
The location was perfect - very quiet neighbourhood ,with very easy access to the city center. There were frequent buses (every 5 minutes) to the city center and to the university (every 10 minutes), and it would take us around 15 to walk there - which is very doable. It is a good hotel for those who want privacy and quiet at night and, at the same time, hit the bars in Lucasbolwerk.
Overall, a good stay. It served our purposes. It was a bit expensive for our standards, considering the rooms, but it was ok considering hotel prices in the Netherlands.
