Excellent location for quick easy access to Amsterdam central station- one stop on train. Room and en-suite was perfect. Clean, simple but comfortable and modern. The downstairs area was hostel like in style. We choose not to eat at the hotel and buy food out, however good for drinks etc. The staff were polite and friendly although everything seemed to take time. Maybe still new teething problems! However we witnessed them dealing very politely to some very rude guests.
The only negative is that the wifi was only available downstairs and when busy it was impossible to use.
I would highly recommend for people wanting cheap accommodation close to but not in the centre and for groups and couples. I will stay at again when I next come to Amsterdam!
