As other have said, it's a little off the beaten path. But totally worth it, and you have easy access to downtown. It's a 2 minute walk from Amstel train station, which has trains running to Centraal every other 15 minutes or so. There's also buses, but I personally chose to walk to the city center every day. That took about 30 minutes. The building itself is very modern, newly built, and it shows. There's hundred's of rooms so don't expect a huge apartment, I should guess. My single room was small but sufficient. Breakfast was more than filling - buffet style. Overall, I would say my stay here was money well spent.
