“Top location but very basic”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

Warning - if you have 20kg suitcases and your room is located on the top floor (yes and yes for our experience) be prepared for the one of the most strenuous workouts of your life.

The rooms are very small and absolutely bare minimum basic, however the location is so good that those things don't really matter. If you don't mind 'roughing it' for the sake of being in an excellent location, I would recommend. Not too badly priced (in comparison to other places to stay in the area) and the staff were ok.

The reviews here were a little bit scary. So when we booked the room we knew we could be facing a nightmare. However, we had a GREAT experience. If you are travelling on a budget, this place is ideal. It is VERY close to Amsterdam Central train station (two blocks from main street leading to Dam Square and coincidentally one block from the Red Light District). Of course, the hotel is awful in the sense that it needs new furniture ASAP and there is an awful smell at the entrance. The rooms are really small and the mattress pretty hard. But if you are to spend a weekend there, there shouldn't be any problems. I mean, if you are only looking for a clean and safe place to sleep on, then the Beursstraat hotel should not dissapoint you. We mostly saw young guys who probably won't care too much if there are a lot of stairs, or if the sheets are old, or if the bathroom is tiny. In any case, the shower was pleasant enough, the people at front desk were quite helpful (they provided other sheets when requested) and the best thing of the hotel is the LOCATION and price. Would definitely go back. AH, also, another advante: it is petfriendly!

Room Tip: ASK for rooms in the first floors. We were at the last one and it is quite tiresome to get there...

It's not an hotel but an hostel for young people. Dirty rooms and dangerous stairs. It's also very expensive for what it offers. The hall is dirty and the porter eats and play with the cat without any interest for the guest.

what a dive we stayed in number 31. 78 steps and 6 flights of steep stairs. its safe to say if there was a fire below, you better hope you've got half a cigarette a rizla and a lighter and some of the finest bud you've ever smoked as it will for sure be your last. the room was freezing, the radiator was just a fixture on the wall as it served no purpose what so ever. the beds tool like they has come from hitlers training camp. its like a scene from train spotting. A crack den.

Stayed here 1st-4th march 2013.
Rooms were clean,beds are wood nailed together with prison mattress and itchy blankets.
We only needed someplace to sleep,but hotel decided to turn heating OFF (its winter time and damm cold) not good.
Hotel smells a little but that seems normal for cheap hotels in dam.
You can smoke weed in room but open the windows.
Not likely to stay here again.

Like first, the location is absolutelly great. The prices of the accommodation for Amsterdam are more than friendly. I have been here with group of 8 friends. Nobody of us complain about the accommodation. Furniture is old but ok, sice of rooms is small but ok, bathroom is absolutelly ok (everything works), heating works well too. We used the rooms for sleeping and the sleeping quality is good. Just to compare, two years ago we were in 4* hotel, price was minimal double and the accommodation was very similar, i can say, no difference, ok, 4* hotel had TV in room.
Hotel Beursstraat = you get, what you pay for, dont expect 5* servis for few EURs. I dont have problem to stay here again. Good location for exploring the city.
p.s. We got very late check out for free, great bonus. Big thx to helpfull stuff :-)

The location of this hotel is fantastic, you're less than a 5 minute walk away from the red light district, Central Station, Dam square etc.
We just wanted somewhere really cheap and centrally located as we were only there for one night to have a few beers and watch Ajax v Real Madrid.
The hotel is very outdated but clean, it's fine to go with "the lads" if you're just looking for a place to crash but if you're going with your partner then pay the extra money and stay somewhere nicer.
