“Amazing staff, excellent value for money!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2014

I went to this hotel yesterday for 2 days and could not wait to get home and write my review. It was my hen do and from the moment I walked in the wonderful receptionists made me feel so special. They hugged me and welcomed my mum too. The reception area was really nice and they made excellent coffees!

For the money that we paid, we were not expecting a lot, but we really loved it. There is a large lobby, that serves hot and cold drinks with very comfy couches and stunning chandeliers.

The rooms were basic, but extremely clean with quirky art work on the walls. The shared bathrooms were also spotless. Cleaning staff were seen everyday in both the rooms and shared areas. We didn't experience any problems with waiting to use shared facilities. The only minor issue was the stairs, but it wasn't a huge problem.

I would highly recommend this hotel to anybody and will certainly be returning in the future. Thank you so much for making our stay memorable, you were all brilliant, but especially to the lovely lady who checked us in and the night porter who made sure we all got safely to our rooms!

We spent two nights there on our way home from Kenya, the staff were very friendly. We lucked out and stayed on the first floor which is actually the basement. There is no elevator. Our room had a very small window so if there was a fire I am sure we would have been toast but it was clean and all we needed. The location is great and I would recommend it to everyone looking for a clean and convenient place to stay.

It is a good-deal hotel here, however the staff is quite unfriendly. Nevertheless, there's no elevator, I was lucky enough to be placed at the first floor.. If you guys are not, well good luck with those torn up stairs !
Oh ! Their bathroom is prison-made :/

We were not expecting a beautiful hotel, just something that did the job (inexpensively), and that's what it was. The location itself was ideal, 5 minute walk away from Centraal Station, and 3 great coffeeshops on the same street. The location meant that exploring the city was very easy. The room was clean and so was the ensuite, however there was 1 wall socket in the entire room, which was a 3 person room, so you could imagine that that caused difficulty. The window didn't close properly which made it pretty cold and the noise from the street was quite annoying, however it wasn't unbearable. People at reception were friendly enough, we didn't bother them much other than to ring us a taxi.

Overall if you're on a budget and want location over luxury, this hotel will do the job!

I think some people expect too much but for Under 60 Euros on a Saturday night this is a good value.
The location is great 8-10 minute walk from the central station & going back at night its easy to find and not too loud unlike other locations.

This is a cheap budget hotel close to the central railway station in amsterdam so adjust your expectations accordingly. i paid twenty nine euros for a room with shared bathroom; i stayed only one night. i chose it due to location since i had to take a very early morning train to airport. railway hint: most of the entry doors of the railway station are locked and do not open till six am but there is one door on east side that is open. due to construction, it is not easy to find. the lobby is nice; the rooms are basic. i arrived very early at seven am and the lady at reception was rather curt and severe but she let me put my luggage in their locked storage room in the basement. the staff in the evening were young and much friendlier. i was given a room with a larger single bed [double bed size] though i had booked only a single bed room. the bed took about ninety percent of the room. there was a sink in the room, a tiny table and one chair. there are plenty of places close by to eat. there is a small grocery store called DAILY FRESH on haarlemmerstraat; google it. the bathroom and toilet were clean. the hotel consists of two buildings, which are interconnected; one of them has very strong cigarette smell but the other does not

Room Tip: no elevator or lift so stay as close to ground floor as possible. i was on first floor

Stayed here twice on 2 long weekends away to Amsterdam. Having wanted somewhere to crash out after exploring it was perfect, only a 10 minute walk from Centraal station and a 15 minute stroll to Dam square.

The sizeable lobby gives off the feel of somewhere a little more plush, however the rooms were basic but clean. The staff were friendly enough, the Australian sounding lady was lovely and welcoming to all guests. The first time we had the shared bathroom, this wasn't ideal as the loo on the top floor is tiny and sharing the shower room was inconvenient. However, second time round we paid £10 more for a large, clean bathroom which I would recommend doing. Also, note the forth floor is a lot of stairs with no lift. It was good exercise but our larger friend wasn't too impressed ;).

Loads to do nearby, canals, bike rental next door, Subway & McDonalds 5 minutes away & we found the Dampkring coffee shop opposite one of the best! The popular argentinian steaks are also well worth trying!

Perfect hotel for our needs (small group of lads on a budget). However, I probably wouldn't recommend it for a romantic trip away.

Room Tip: Recommend paying extra for bathroom.
