Just arrived home after a very memorable first visit to Amsterdam! The hemp hotel was in a great location, just a short tram ride to everything you might need. Our host was Merl, a friendly, down to earth guy who couldn't do enough to help. He gave us a very personal experience, a great insight into dutch culture! We ended... More

I just stayed for three months at The Hemp. Yeah, the place is more like a hostel than a hotel, so if cleanliness and high quality bedding are high on your list, this is not the place for you. But if you want to stay above an astoundingly friendly late night smoking bar located in the virtual heart of the... More

I stayed here in 2007 with my friend in the Moroccan room. I cant recall it being unclean like some have said previously. Infact, all I remember are the wonderful staff who would do anything for you. the vertical stairs, which were amazing lol and the lovely times we had sat in the bar, being allowed to choose our own...

Good if you need a place to crash where they are really cool and laid back. This is not a business style hotel, great for young people. The walls are a bit on the dirty-ish side but bearable and the great staff and laid back attitude make up for it x10. Only the building is bit tired, the bedclothes, cups,... More

After reading the other reviews on here, I decided to try the Hemp Hotel anyways. It cost about 60 Euros a night for a double bed with a shower and shared toilet. There was television with BBC and Comedy Central in English, and all of the staff speak predominantly English, which was nice. There is a decent breakfast every morning... More

ok location, well priced considering what other hotels charge in amsterdam. themed rooms: afghan, morrocan and 2 other themes, bar underneath with well priced beer. someone is always there to help with directions to sights and stores around the area, reccommended if you want to save some money on accomodation.

The owner of this HELL hole should be ashamed. This place is gross and dirty. The rooms are disgusting, very untidy and dusty. This place needs a make over. The stair way is ridiculous. the place in all is nasty nasty nasty. The owner should be embarrassed to even have this place as an hotel. Hemp hotel never again the... More

This was a recommend by a friend who had stayed there twice before. I stayed with my husband and 2 friends and after reading previous comments was a bit scared about what we might find! Check-in was at the bar/reception (rock-salt lamps, lit ganja pipes, off-it guy chattering non-stop with the most beautiful beaming smile on his boat-race), our rooms... More

This Hotel has everything you need as long as you want what this is offering. It has cheap prices, good location, VERY nice staff and an amazing and cheap bar where smoking is allowed. This is perfect for bohemian people who won't pay much attention to cleanliness and standard. I can recommend this hostel very very much for anyone who... More

The hotel itself is terrible, but the service of the staff is great. I would have to agree with a former commenter who said they need to relocate to a better spot and it'd probably be a better stay. The vibe of the hotel is very bohemian, and the little complimentary packet you get in your room is cool -... More
