Our stay here was for four nights during August. This place as I've said in the title was nothing special but did what it was meant to do. Had a shower and bed which really when staying in a place like Amsterdam is all one needs. There is so much to do in this city that's all we required! It... More

Good points - Great location within walking distance of all the attractions, trams and night life. The staff were very friendly and helpful and a Lidl supermarket is just around the corner. Also the TV worked fine and some English channels were available. Bad points - First of all you can't check in until 3pm which was a pain as... More

Booked this hotel which included breakfast, arrived to be told that there was no breakfast, got up to our triple bed room to find 4 beds, no wardrobe, a leaking water pipe to the toilet, no shampoo or shower gel in the dispensers, sockets that didn't work and looked unsafe, considering the price we paid it was a rip off....

First of all the hotel is full of bugs. Every night I have got bitten by small bugs. Now I have red dots all around my body and I keep scratching myself. The room was also full of mosquitos. Every part of the hotel is dirty. People who work here do not care about anything. You cannot get clean towels... More

Take My Advice And Do NOT Book This Hotel. Did Not Return My Pre-Authorised Funds From My Credit Card Taken For Deposit At The Hotel, over $250AUD. Its Been 3 Months And They Have Not Returned My Money Nor Any Calls Or Emails. Have reports this to the bank and will report to every hotel review site. CRIMINALS!!

As they said already you get what you pay for so can't really complain.. was expecting a little more but who cares. To much snoring I pearsonally think lol. Although staff was kind enough to keep the bag for me in reception considering that you can't hit the couch until 3 PM !

We stayed here while touring Europe for 6 week, it was our first stop. It was great for what we needed, a place to shower and sleep. Our room did not have a bathroom or shower attached. The bathroom on our floor was very very small. The shower was very large. Our room was very small enough for 2 single... More

Overall, the hostel was good. Clean linen, towels provided, helpful staff and nice reliable, warm showers. However, there was a lack of common room, and we felt it was slightly overpriced given the location (about 40 minute walk from the train station)

Two days later we found three mice in our room (room 3).So we went to complaint, and the employee found it normal,... More
