We arrived there around 2:30am. Knocked on the locked door. The guy had one unrented room and we took it. The clerk came in our room the following morning while we were doing stuff couples do in bed and insisted on talking. We said please get out! And he continued chatting as if we were having coffee or something like... More

After reading several reviews about this hostel I was a little skeptical about staying here, however we booked it as it was cheap and we figured we'd only be there on a night to sleep. I stayed here with my partner, my brother, his fiance and my niece. Myself and my partner had room number 9 (would definitely recommend it!),... More

This hostel has serious cleanliness issues! I moved my bed to find a rat box and poison scattered all over the room. The toilet literally was the worst thing I've ever smelt, we had to hold our nose to even get in our room! The location is good but that is everything good about this hostel!

Like many other reviewers, we felt this hostel was wonderfully located which made staying here completely worth it. The staff was very friendly and spoke english, which was helpful. Breakfast was served every day, but we never stuck around for it. You are allowed to keep your luggage in the common room after you check out which is a nice... More

Hotel: The hotel itself is well maintained. It has a few floors, with very steep stairs which is traditional for Amsterdam. It has a nice lounge area, where food is served and has a TV. There is also no curfew so for us coming in late was not a problem. Rooms: The rooms are clean, a bit outdated but then... More

The only adventage of this hostel in my opinion is its location. Unfortunatelly, there are more cons than pros. First of all, there were mouses in our room - jumping into the table and on the chair where we kept our clothes!!!! As soon as we switched off the light, we could hear them walking in the walls and on... More

I stayed here for two nights over a weekend. Perhaps rude staff is harsh, there was really only one guy who was rude, but he was VERY rude and he was the one we dealt with the most. Between screaming at us because we had 3 people sitting in a two person room at one point to banging on our... More

I have just spent 7 nights at the Hotel Groenendael and I really like it. Of course it is not "perfect"...but you can't expect "luxury" for 35euro a night, breakfast included ! a great DEAL in Amsterdam! I had the very decent room n.11 on the last floor, a bit old, but perfectly clean and silent, with a little sink... More

60 Euros a night for a double/twin room incl breakfast. Place looked alright only in the first place.. old dirty curtains, shower on our floor not working, obviously only the most necessary repairs and maintenence is being done. Bed sheets were clean but had holes. At night we woke up from the noises of our animal guests: a mouse was... More
