Stayed here twice for a few nights. First time in a 10 bed dorm. 2nd in a 4 bed private. Had no problems with both, only average thing was so many stairs to get to the private room. People at reception very helpful and hostel is in great location, close to train station and shopping strip.

We booked this hotel after seeing the pictures and info on its web site, but have never seen or experienced accommodation as bad as it was. The carpets were filthy, as was the room, with streaked black windows, where the paint was peeling off, and that did not close properly, so we were subjected to constant noise from the street...

we arrived at this hotel thinking that we got a bargain simply because the price was fairly good and did not doubt for one second this was going to be such a disappointment, we had to climb a mountain of stairs next door to our hotel before we even met a receptionist who then gave us the keys to 101...

After wading the reviews and seeing the pictures of bed bugs we were dreading it! Overall we stayed for 3 nights, stayed here the first night then the... More

We just got back from an amazing time in Amsterdam! The only let down was the hotel! We were in room 101. The staff were very accommodating as the first room we got put into stunk of deep fried food emanating from the vents at the back of the restaurant, so we were moved to room 101. The actual room...
