Me and my friend booked a room in a mixed dorm. We booked about a week in advance so quite last minute. I thought it was a bit pricey for what you get. Our room was a bit stuffy as it was 6 to a room and the bathroom had no ventilation. If you left the bathroom door open the... More

Really friendly and helpful staff, nice little balcony behind the desk - no bud nor booze allowed but that isn't really of concern as downstairs, there's is an easy going coffee shop called Rookie's. The weed is good and the atmosphere is relaxed - good music! The rooms are standard, no complaints about anything really. Location wise, it's about a... More

Came to this coffeeshop everyday of my four day stay with my girlfriend. Nice weed, good coffees, friendly staff and good prices. I would highly recommend this place for a chilled out smoke. Smoke a prerolled power plant spliff in the morning and youll get a nice relaxed but active feeling over the day :) peace x

Room, beds and bathroom were perfectly clean at the start but the bathroom floor got quite unsanitary by the last couple... More

This place is awful. The rooms are small and there are too many beds. It gets stuffy and gross. It's also a fire hazard because there's no fire escape. The last night I stayed there, my bed had been used by someone else and unclean. The guy at the reception gave me new linens and did not offer to change... More

I have never stayed at the hotel but this is my favourite coffee shop in Amsterdam, very cosy and relaxed atmosphere. Lots of drinks to choose from, they make a delicious hot chocolate with cream! Staff are very polite and friendly. Would recommend :)
