I choose this hotel based on how easy it seemed to get to and it was. I was travelling alone and had one night in the city so I needed something easy and safe.
My room was quiet and clean. Surprisingly large, decent size wardrobe, a safe, updated bathroom, window looked out on the backgardens of houses nearby.
I had the breakfast the next morning downstairs, it was simple and great. €5 if you pay the night before, if you do not pre pay it will cost you €6.50 the next morning.
It's on the 2 and 5 tram line and across the street from the Van Gogh Museum, great for landmark reference. There is a grocery store a 5 minute walk away to pick up snacks or a meal or beer. There is great shopping a few minutes walk away.
There is a hostel connected to the hotel but it has a separate entrance and the guests seemed to keep to themselves.
If you plan to go to the Van Gogh museum buy your tickets ahead of time and go early. The line was two hours long to get in and the Anne Frank House line was longer.
