Stayed here for two March. On arrival The reception staff where very pleasant and helpful. We got our keys and opened the door to hike up and down 132 stairs to our room. The stair case absolutely stank of cats pee and had lots of cats hairs which I'm allergic to! Got into the room which was slanting to the... More

This hotel is a 5minute walk from the central train station in Amsterdam, "Centraal". Cheapest hotel I could find with a central location. I knew it was rough and it lived up to it's review ! Lots of stairs to climb, no lift, very small room with no window view but if all you want is a place to sleep... More

This s****hole wasn't cheap and had bonus fees that were brought to our attention when we checked in. Not only the fees, but WiFi is not free and is slower than a snail. The bald scumbag who works the counter in the morning tries to charge you 2 euros for 1 hour of WiFi per person! Not only that but... More

Be ready to climb four floors to reach your not so clean room then be ready to pay in advance and only cash ( credit cards were unavailable) otherwise they will refuse you the entrance to your room even if you had already paid for it. Discussing with a unpolite night shift was pretty unpleasant. By far the ugliest hotel... More

Okay so it's not the most perfect hotel in the world, the stairs are steep, the shower is terrible and the music from the club next door is a killer for trying to nod off, but for a one star hotel, I was impressed In a great location with everything you need only round the corner, and most of the...

My friends had already stayed here and had warned me that it was cheap for a reason. This place is not for you If you appreciate a good hotel room! We had a small room with 5 beds, we had enough room to walk to our bed to the toilet. The shower is temperamental so don't expect a refreshing wash.... More

If you want a budget accomodation in Amsterdams redlight district you will be okay. Be prepared for a very, very small room, dirty carpet and an old window that does not keep the noises from the very, very busy street out of the room. Check-out is 10:30 am. At 9:30 someone banged at our door to collect the key and... More

Cheap rooms, you get what you pay for... Aragont staff, filthy rooms, worst of all.... Visit from the Rats, big ones to, size of cats. Horrible, never again, places like that should be closed down. Do your self a favour, pay a little extra and go some where better.
