The hotel, in a business district, is basically a youth hostel. The room was small, but clean, bathroom was really good, but all the rest was a big rip-off. Insufficient reception staff and elevators, thus long waiting times, which is annoying when being on a business trip. The "bar" and "breakfast room" were youth hostel style, with self service, beer... More

Staff is great! They speak perfect English so you don't have to explain yourself a lot! Rooms are clean. We were in a 4-bed dorm and everything was nice. I really loved it that is is exactly next to Sloterdjik train station and you don't have to walk long to the room in the evening after a long day of... More

The only downside with this hotel is the location - it's well out of the city centre, but it's two minutes from Station Sloterdijk - where you can get a tram (35 mins), bus (20 mins) or train (5 mins) to the centre. The rooms are spacious and clean, with plenty of plug sockets - an essential for any visitor!... More

This is a 'smoke free' hotel. We stayed for 2 nights, the room is clean and comfortable. But the double room is a little bit small, the triple room has 4 beds. It's near to the Sloterdijk train station, 7 minutes to Amsterdam Central station. If you come with car, you can park the car behind the hotel (a parking... More

Yes it has 'hostel vibes', yes it is not right in the city centre, but for our family of four it was a great place to stay to see Amsterdam for four days. The hotel is very clean, smart and well run. Some reviews suggest the rooms are small. We disagree; we have stayed in far pokier, conventional hotels. It... More

Stayed here two times in february 2013, one night each time. It's located right next to the railway station of Sloterdijk and the train ride is like 10 minutes to Amsterdam Central and 10 minutes the other way to the airport, so the location is good if you like to save some money and not stay in central Amsterdam. Even... More

the hotel was clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful! The rooms had plenty of space. It is next to the bus/tram/train and made it easy to get into the city everyday! We will stay there again the next time we're in Amsterdam!

Was concerned about the location of the hostel as had to get a train to it from the city centre, but actually less hassle than getting the metro in Paris or Brussels. Most local services stopped at the station and was literally two minutes, so was a great location really. Booked a four bed dorm, but had five people in... More

We stayed here in a 4 person room for three nights. It's located next door to sloterdijk station which is just two stops down from the airport and one stop away from the central station. The rooms were perfectly clean and in top condition as they are fairly new. We didn't sample breakfast but we used the 24 hour bar... More

I had a single room and as said in previous reviews it was tiny, but very clean and well maintained. The en-suite bathroom was actually quite large. The TV in the room was able to pick up BBC1 and 2. Overall I'd say the standard of the place was similar to one of the newer Travelodges, though with a substantially... More
