This place is fine for the flat rate of the room, but they charge you one euro for a shower token which is six minutes of less than lukewarm water. They also charge you for toilet paper and heating in the room. The owner was a little rude and obnoxious but not overly frustrating. This place is located quite far... More

This hostel has a very bad service and the manager is a very rude person who is not responsible for his mistakes. For example two nights ago when we arrived to the hostel, he had forgotten to put our names on the late comer's list at the reception door, there were nobody to help us in that cold and rainy...

Morning came and I went to reception for my 1€ Shower coin, proceeded to take a shower however was greeted 1 minute later by a mans head looking up at... More

I was ther with 6 friends of mine and we had a 8bed cottage. I loved our cottage small but really comfortable. Shower toilets and sinks were very clean every time I used them and the shower was cheap just 1 euro for 6 minutes. We rented bikes to go down to the city which was pretty far but it... More

We booked his for our family's final night abroad specifically because it is close to the airport. We had narrowed it to this and one hostel in town, and this won out because of the parking! It would have doubled our cost to park a vehicle in town. We had planned to go into town for the day, but were... More

Amsterdamse Bos is nice at first. It looks friendly, it is very green, and you hope that the smell emanating from the swamp is only temporary. The multilingual staff is not exactly helpful and you are left to find places in Amsterdam without help. You then find your cabin, which is apparently in acceptable condition. No luck with the wifi,... More

Our first hand exoerience is absolutely fabulous. Quiet hideout in the forest. We stayed in Florida chalet which was the right size for 4. Bike rentals made the stay enjoyable as from the forest you will be in Amsterdam within 8 km.....within 1 hr fun biking. Avoid being in the forest at night....we got lost! But on the whole a...
