Kooyk is located conveniently in Leidseplein. The rooms upstairs however are located rather inconveniently up some dangerously steep stairs. The people in the hotel are quite lovely. Unfortunately, they are much nicer than the facilities. Shared shower and toilet. Shower was relatively clean. Toilet could be likened to the urinals they had out on the street (during world cup) -... More

The first night a woman was crying all through the night in the room next door. (sounded like her and her partner were having an arguement, i... More

I was struggling to find a cheap budget hotel in Amsterdam that looked reasonable, and eventualy settled on the Kooyk. Ultimately, I would have to say that I got exactly what I was looking for. There is no doubt that this hotel is very basic. The steep stairs (very steep!) make access difficult, especially with luggage, but were not a... More

Where to start? The first room we were given featured a single window that looked DIRECTLY out upon a gray, dirty wall. We asked for a different room and were given a room on the ground-floor, next to the manager's office. It was dark and damp, but at least it opened up onto the "garden" outside. The building is in...

This hoStel (NOT hotel) is terribly run down. Looks as though it has not been renovated since at least the 60s. The toilet and douche (shower) were literally built in closets and smelled of urine. The "housekeepers" stole our own private towels on the second day and replaced them with the hostel towels. At this point we were not planning... More

The location is great, right around the corner from the happening Leidesplein! I brought a group on a very tight budget, and wanted cheapest possible accommodations that was not a hostel. I wanted a location that was near the Leidesplein and Museumplein, and I wanted a place that was clean and safe. I was happy with the Kooyk. Toilet was... More

My partner and I travelled to this hotel on leisure in late 2008 and stayed for 3 days. We were a bit hesitant to book this place initially given the poor reviews we had read on tripadvisor and the fact that it was a 1-star. After staying here, we now know the reason for all the poor reviews; this hotel... More

Stayed here for 3 nights in February (5th, 6th and 7th) after advice from a friend who had already been a guest here. Arrived late on the Friday and rang the doorbell to be greeted by a friendly young Dutch girl who checked us in swiftly and went over the house rules etc. The rooms themselves are very no-frills: sink,...

The hotel itself is a typical Amsterdam hotel, tall and narrow with steep stairs but these are by far not the worst we have encountered!!! The proprietor met us at the door at 10am 4 hours early for check-in but was very friendly and helpful, we stored our luggage and settled up for the room at this time as well,... More
