“Better than a hostal... and just it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

Well, if you travel on budget, this can be your choice, as its price is slightly above a hostal, even with shared rooms, and its definitely better.

But... rooms are a bit old, cold (lucky I was alone and could use both duvets). The TV is just tiny. Shared toilet is usually free, but tiny and creepy. The shower is ok. The mattress are comfortable, although the pillow is too small. I saw a small bug running in the other bed. You can hear other guest's TV if it's a bit loud.

Cleaning staff starts about 9.30 so from that time you won't sleep. The staff at reception is very nice and helpful, they don't open 24 hours tough. Breakfast is probably the best part (but not included!).

I was alone there ... my room was totally clean and it was one of the best budget hotels which I have ever experienced in Netherlands. Also in the back yard there are enough place to park the bike. I was under roof and calling was short for me. With 190 height it was a little difficult to walk in the room ... but in general it was very nice. Hotel is located in the city center (Close to IND)

Just be careful ... It has WiFi ... but it Doesn't have ;)

Room Tip: Room number 8 is under roof ... if you like to experience something new!!

You do not expect much for 29 Euro, but this place is above expectations.
Small, but clean and air-conditioned room (own room, not just the sleeping place), fantastic breakfast, even nice view from the window.
Minuses: WiFi not free, about 4 Euro for 8 Hours (and weird packages - one hour, 8 hours, one week), no elevator and not 24/7 Front Desk (working hours are from 8am to 7pm)
So, if you need to stay somewhere until the airport opens up, and do not want to spend much money for it, for example, this Hotel is perfect.

Bargain price for the night, no one even comes close. Yes you pay for what you get such as shared shower and toilets but this is worthevery penny. I stay here when I can as all I need a hotel for is sleep. The only downside can be the noise from the pub across the road from the hotel, but if you request a room at the back of the hotel this is not a problem!
