We stayed there two nights. It's quite far from the central train station if you go by foot (and I did not really appreciate the tram ride either) but it is rather close to many attractions including canals, restaurants, bars, shop, grocery stores and bike rental stores. The breakfast offered was very good and had a wide enough variety of food.
We had a private two-bed room with shared bathroom. The latter is only shared with a 'corridor' mate, but ours apparently smoked some green stuff in his/her room and we could definitely smell it in the corridor. Other than that it was totally fine for us as a place to sleep. There was a balcony with a view of the interior 'garden' (it's actually a grocery store's roof with weeds growing on top), the room had a TV and a few power outlets to charge electronic devices. There was also a table with two chairs.
If you want to save some money for food, right between the two entrances for the hotel is located an Albert Heijn where you can buy cheap food instead of eating out (truth is you will probably notice the store before finding the hotel!).
They offer storage for your luggage and you are pretty close to Vondelpark, which is a good thing for people like me who sometimes need a bit of peace with grass and trees, because that city was very... tonic when I visited it.
