“Good location, not so great value for money”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for three nights. Unfortunately, in 2 of them I didn't get any sleep, since there was a smelly junkie in my room and the place was fully booked. I was told that this is my problem, with no effort to help.

When there finally was another room, I had to change the sheets myself. Neither of the rooms was cleaned during my stay. Bathrooms are cleaned only after breakfast, so if you want to enjoy the (very basic) breakfast you get to witness the results of your floormates' night adventures.

If you're in amsterdam to get high or drunk, it's fine. Otherwise, put in a few extra euros and go elsewhere.

I stayed in a private double room with my husband, shared bathroom. Although the rooms are small and you'll get no view, I was surprised that I had my own sink, flat screen tv and safe. There was at least one bathroom and shower on each floor which meant I never had to wait to use it. The room and building were kept very clean and there was staff on hand 24/7. If you need a good, clean place to put your head with a great location this is the place to stay.

The hotel was very clean and tidy and the staff were excellent, really helpful and very friendly. The hotel was very basic and the rooms were quite small, but they are perfect if you don't plan to spend any time at the hotel just a place to go back to and sleep. The hotel was in the perfect location if you want to explore the heart of Amsterdam (coffee shops, red light district, bars and restaurants) Two of us stayed for 2 nights @ the cost 200 Euro with free breakfast for both days. So for the location and service of the hotel provided we feel the price and overall experience was very good and great value for money. We would defo go back.

I booked our flights not knowing that there was a business convention in Amsterdam. All hotels were VERY expensive and this was the cheapest I could find. I was a bit nervous as it seems aimed at backpackers and we are a middle-aged couple who like a reasonably early night and a quiet room. I had booked a double room with shared bathroom/shower in the annex.

However, it was fine. The toilet and shower were kept clean and we didn't need to queue - that had been one of my worries. The room was quiet, so that was great. There was no noise from the street either.

We stayed on the second floor. There is no lift and the stairs are narrow and steep, so, if you are unsteady/have mobility problems, this would not be suitable for you.

Regarding the prostitutes, they are not in the street, but behind windows.

Staff at the front desk are very nice.

I would consider staying here again.

We stayed here in a 6 bedroom dorm, the dorm was a great size and very clean, it did back on to a section of the red light district which was amusing. The staff were most helpful in planning trips and finding places, WiFi worked some of the time however wasn't too great, the hostel was quite noisy of a evening, doors slamming etc. The shared bathrooms were okay however one door didn't lock on our floor to the shower so was quite daring using that cubicle, all part of the experience... breakfast was excellent and including in the price, unlimited toast, spreads, meats, cereal, eggs, and hot drinks!

Overall, this hotel was rather average value for money in our experience. Reviews on the two buildings would be chalk and cheese as they are so different. If you happen to be stationed in the extension building, be prepared for small rooms with tiny window, shoebox-size WC and narrow and steep staircases with no lift. Located next to Red Light windows.
The main building is more modern with nicer amenities. The breakfast was good and rich, and the staff friendly but not going out of their way for best service. Overall clean and good central location, not far from main station and big supermarket. For the same money, a houseboat might have been more of an experience!

Room Tip: Go for a room in the main building.
