Stayed in this hotel/hostel in September, we paid 175 euros for 3 nights which is cheaper than a hotel or hostel in centre of Amsterdam. We mainly booked due to it being cheapest option for private bedroom and bathroom. No shower curtain in room, tiny bathroom. Bed comfortable and shower nice pressure. We found it hard to find and had... More

We stayed at the West Side Inn in 2010 when it was named HEM Amsterdam Hotel, and that was a good experience so we decided to try their new extension Toko at 50 euros/night which is really cheap for Amsterdam. Part of the challenge with this hotel is finding it so as we already knew how to find it that... More

I wasn't expecting much given that it was a 'budget' hotel. The room was small, the bed OK and a TV in the room. Fair enough. However the bathroom was revolting. It was poorly (as in not) ventilated and stank of damp. There was evidence of mould in the bathroom and the bedroom consequentially. The shower had a broken rail... More

I've never stayed in a bad hotel like this...nothing was good except the staff. available to correct the issue... but too many issues to stay there. Unfortunately we stayed there during a FULL period for the city, before the Queen Party, so all hotel were completely full. We stayed there just the first night and then we moved to the... More

We were charged 80 euros for a night (Saturday) which was absolutely overpriced. The room was dirty, very dusted in the headboard. The toilet is really old and needs refurbishing. It's quite far away from town, about 20 min by tram (and some extra euros!). Breakfast is served in the hotel next door, which was simple but good (3.75 euros).... More

This place is situated in the western part of Amsterdams suburbs, wich are known for their high crime rate. I had ordered a dormitory room, so I knew I should share the room with somebody else. When I came to my room there were two guys in there: The man who had rented the other bed and his fat old... More

So I booked a ticket and didn't notice the long hour overstay at the airport. When I noticed I had 13 hrs, I decided to check in at Hem hotels. This was the first and would be last mistake I'll ever make with my money. The room I was given was the size of a dog cage (my dog cage).... More

As mentioned by other reviewers, the rooms are basic but met all the "minimum requirements" of services and hygiene- even though tall people might have a hard time fitting their legs while sitting on the toilet! Despite being quite out of town, the Metro is within a short walking distance and there are even a the Lidl and an albert... More
