Stayed here for 3 nights in January, exactly what u expect from a cheap stay in Amsterdam! Went to Amsterdam previous 2 years ago and paid more for a hostel which was awful. We had a quadruple room and it was on the first floor so didn't have to walk too many steep stairs. Beds were comfy, bathroom was clean... More

I stayed here with 3 friends in a quadruple private room. It was more than i paid for. The beds are so comfy. The room is hot enough so we did not get cold. The breakfast was not so diverse but was enough. The staff is not so talky but they help. The hotel has a free map i would... More

Wasn't great place tbh ... First day we checked in staff not very friendly and didn't give us much information. Room was very basic. The t.v , safe and some of the lights were broken in our room. Although we had a balcony at the top floor so that was pretty cool. Good place to stay if your only staying... More

short holiday in Amsterdam, we were 9 people we have reserved two private dormitories with 4 and 5 beds with own bathroom, clean and tidy, location not far from the center 15 minutes walk, average breakfast, we were satisfied, prices a bit high but it was the Christmas period.

Rooms very basic but that's what you need when visiting Amsterdam, about a 15/20 minute to walk to dam square where you will find all the cafés and red light district, staff very kind, breakfast very short of options

Despite all of these negative comments posted here, we are actually happy with our stay in this hotel. Basic needs such as bed, towels and body shampoo are provided. The room is clean, simple and hygiene as well so we couldnt ask for more! The receptionist we consulted for extra info is extremely amicable! Best recommend for travel,nice location alsoo:)))

After reading reviews I was terrified to stay here but i was actually surprised. The room was very basic (bed, chair and sink) but was clean and warm, the place is a little rough round the edges but if you're literally looking for a bed to sleep in it's perfect. If you're going for a hen do or more of... More

My friend and I booked this hotel without checking reviews first. It's our mistake and we own it but nothing prepared us for what we experienced. There was a music festival in town so every other hotel was fully booked. We ended up paying 130 EUR per night for a three night stay so I definitely didn't think it would... More

I booked a six bed dorm, and they crammed about ten people in there with some sleeping on the floor. I left a bag of toiletries in my room and it was thrown out by the cleaner. While it was a mistake, the owners refused to reimburse or replace any of the toiletries. The cleaner then threatened me for complaining... More
