This is a difficult place to review. Usually I feel you should review somewhere according to how well it achieves what it sets out to do or to be. No-one criticizes an Indian restaurant for not having any Tex-Mex dishes. This hotel aims to provide safe, clean accommodation with a very basic investment in facilities - and it does just... More

The hotel itself isn't the most stunning to look at by any stretch of the imagination, the decor was quite old but still kept very clean which is a credit to the staff. For the price we paid, the service we got was great. The few staff there were really helpful and friendly, especially when we were asking for recommendations... More

Location of the hostel was good. We had a triple room which was quite tight on space, but the beds did the trick. The host was nice - everything was good and value was in line with what we had paid for.

We stayed at this hotel/hostel early Sept. Rooms we're clean but VERY small. We paid for a double room which was 2 single beds. The bathrooms and showers were also both really small. As a person that is 5'9" it was a tight squeeze! We were on the top floor which is a good 46 stairs to get there. Locations... More

To clarify, a 3 out of 5 here doesn't mean it was bad at all. It was average, and given the budget I (and presumably other travelers) was working on, I'd stay here again. The good: Staff was helpful and friendly, able to provide recommendations on food, bars and sightseeing. Of the three hostels I stayed in during my trip... More

The location and central is service is nice. But the rooms are very VERY small. There is a steep staircase to get to them, so if you have kneee issues, think twice before booking here.

When my mates and I arrived at the front door of the hostel, we were greeted by the long, narrow staircase, typical to Netherlands. And so we have to lugged our heavy suitcase up the stairs and it didnt help that our room was on the TOP floor. It was a really funny sight, us three pulling/dragging those bags up... More

Our experience with My Home wasn't that good at the beginning because when we arrived, after reconfirming the booking by phone and email, we were told that they had doublebooked the room meaning we didn't have a room for that night! But they arranged for us to stay at another hotel for that night. The following nights we stayed at... More
