OK .. I thought cheap and cheery. Read other reviews but thought ..it can't be that bad ! It is and more. Pluses first ..The beds are good, clean linen and bath towels. Wifi is good, very quick and free. Keeps disconnecting but easy to click back on. Trams to the city are only a 5 min walk away and... More

It was probably the crappiest hotel I have ever stayed at. The bathroom was small and stank pretty bad, the floors were filthy, the maid stole our candy. Its a good place to stay if youre on a budget. But if you can afford it.....stay somewhere less seedy or at least somewhere closer to the city center. It will be... More

I'm so surprised to see all of these negative reviews and so few good ones. I had a great time here so I want to let people know about it. We chose this place because it was the absolute cheapest we could find. Honestly we were worried and expecting much worse. But we were pleasantly surprised to find our simple... More

Read alot of bad reviews after booking, so i wasnt expecting very much. If getting a taxi or getting directions just ask for the west side inn, its in the same gated area and more people tend to know where the west side inn is located. didnt get told you had to check in at the west side in but...

I found this "cheap" option for Amsterdam standards on booking.com and prepaid for 2 nights.After arriving to Amsterdam late at evening I had a hard time finding this place as I didn't know it was part of West Side Inn Hostel (no word about that on the website I booked!) After finally finding the place I found out there was... More

Stayed in the Hotel over Xmas 13' for 3 nights for €100. Hotel is in a remote location, but I knew that when I booked, so sussed out that tram 2 takes you to within a 5 min walk. Local shops near by. Certainly not the best looking hotel you will see, and the Hostel accom opposite looks like something... More

It was quite expensive but maybe that's just Amsterdam. I found NICER and cheaper hotels in CPH and Luxembourg. This hotel was more expensive than both places per night. Amsterdam is expensive even in the hostels. My advice would be to find another hotel/hostel. Don't go for the cheapest option unless you are okay with ROUGHING IT. - which I... More

Myself and my partner were so diss appointed by this hostel. We paid 230 euros for 3 nights which is expensive for the distance to Central Amsterdam. Our room was small and musty and the bathroom was disgusting. It smelt of mold and urine and the toilet was so close to the wall you had to sit sideways to use... More
