    the location, the kindness of the staff

    dirty bedsheets, the toilets were too small (there is not even the space to sit)

  • Group of friends
    7.8

    It's where all the action is.

    Very old building. Noise outside at all hours easily heard due to poor windows & insulation.

  • Single
    4.6

    Decent location, right in the center of the red light district.

    No central air!!! Room was extremely hot, unbearable!!

  • Group of friends
    3.2

    None of the thing is acceptable. The room sucks, quite a lot of insects moving around everywhere and pigeon just stood outside on the windowsill and shouted all day and all night.

    Sucks, sucks! insects (moth, fly, ant) everywhere, animal (mouse, pigeon) everywhere

  • Single

    The price and central location were excellent.

    Probably could improve with changing the time of cleaning at about 11am to maybe 11:30am, rather than doing this just after breakfast, thus making what could be a relaxed late breakfast something of a rushed meal. Then again, there is limited space, so this is understandable. All up, the price is unbeatable and the value for money is great.

  • Group of friends
    4.6

    The location was excellent. Wifi in the hotel was a big plus. The staff was also pretty friendly during check in.

    The room was not clean and we did not get our room serviced during our stay! I suffered over 40 beg bug bites while staying at the hotel over two nights in room 23..horrible!! The management needs to take this issue seriously as it has seriously affected the first week of my holidays in Europe.

    close to station, 24 hours reception.

    location and safety

  • Single
    6.2

    Location is great if you want to be in the heart of Amsterdam.

    Too many bunks in a room, and fewer bunks might mean that snoring does not keep you awake. Also had the impression that the mattresses do not regularly get aired out. Major dislike is the size of the toilet relative to the bathroom. No room to hardly sit, but sideways..... A pain in the ass! Literally! Also the room storage lockers are too small, and cannot accommodate a small 10kg size luggage. But at least can lock up valuables!

  • Group of friends
    3.8

    I chose to stay in this hotel for two reasons. First one is location. The other is that it is supposed to have parking facility in the hotel premises which is totally inaccurate!!!! The parking space is 5km away from the hotel!!! The rooms were dirty and dusty (even found bugs in my towels). Would not suggest it to anyone!

  • Single

    Location is good.

    Door always open, security not good enough

  • Single
    6.6

    It was about the cheapest availbale while still being in the city.

    The smell in the rooms. Air vents covered in mold/grime. Flies. Very hot. Creaky doors into dorm and bathroom meaning no one could sneak in late at night. Breakfast was basic/not great but better than nothing I suppose.

  • Single
    4.6

    location was nice

    smells of room & bath room were bad

  • Single
    8.2

    the price and the locality, breakfast was simple but nice, friendly

    non smoking throughout the building was disapointing, all other hostels and hotels in Amsterdam catered for this.

  • Group of friends
    5.8

    The location is very good although a little confusing to find.

    Bathroom hadn't been cleaned at all, lucky we brought our own disenfectant! The whole place smelt and was like a giant building site. The same pile of dirty towels was there for our entire stay. The street is at full volume for 24 hours a day so bring earplugs!

  • Group of friends
    8.8

    The Hotel was a basic bed and breakfast, but all the staff were extremely polite and helpful, the hotel was also very clean, and havin your own bathroom definately helped. I would definately stay here again.

    The remote control for the T.v was missing from the room, although we didn't ask for it, I heard you could hire one for 5 euro.
