“Would say terrible if it wern't for matey boy”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2014

Average but only because it's in Amsterdam (outskirts) otherwise would have been terrible! Amsterdam and very late at night/early morning. This place was open and they wanted €74 for 2 adults/1 child. No problem. Car outside on the meter. This place is really big, it must have over 1000 rooms. Some seem to be lived in. You are reminded as soon as you arrive here by signs at the lift that 'Smoking will not be tolerated'. The policy seems strict. Windows don't open. Rooms are small and corridors are winding with outdoor walkways connected to them on the upper floors. A strange place. I spent a couple of hours with the guy behind the ramp outside the front having a smoke and learned a lot about the place and it's history from him. Very interesting. Ok for just a sleep and a chat with that fella.

Room Tip: Smoke outside

A group of 5 of us stayed in this hotel in November 2013 in 2 separate rooms. The hotel looks lovely from the inside, the rooms are clean and big enough and are cleaned everyday. The hotel staff were friendly and helped us to get the tram/ book taxis. We weren't as close to the centre as we would have liked to be but it cost 3.80 on the tram to get there and took around 15 mins. Considering what we paid for this hotel I would highly recommend it and definitely stay there again. Only problem is the area didn't look too nice, a bit run down but the hotel cant be blamed. We went to Amsterdam for a drum and bass festival and this hotel was perfect for what we were looking for.

A group of four of us stayed here for a couple days on a girls trip to Amsterdam. The location was pretty good - a bit out of the city, but the price reflects this and it's really easy (one bus) to get into the centre of town. However, the room was ridiculously small; it was difficult to get the four of us and our bags in without the person before you climbing onto the bunk bed to make room. It's a hostel, so we expected the type of atmosphere, but it was always incredibly noisy, and the staff didn't really make any effort to control the wilder people!

Room Tip: Be aware that the 'dorm style rooms' are pretty much cupboards - very small!

Found hotel easily about 20 ride on bus or tram from centre of Amsterdam. (Bus no. 69 from airport approx. 30 mins).Comfortable, warm double room after initially being given 2 single beds in smaller room but staff helpful and moved us immediately after seeing our request in writing. Helped us with bus timetable. Breakfast adequate. Room cleaned daily. Safe provided in room.

As many of the previous comments, I was a bit worried to stay here because of the terrible reviews, however I thoroughly enjoyed my stay.

Yes it is far from the city center but the metro system is easy to use and a ticket is inexpensive. And it is in a quiet neighborhood so no loud noises throughout the night.

The rooms themselves were quite large and very clean. The bathroom was very spacious.

Breakfast was fair for the price (€5.00) We ate there every morning and it filled us until lunch.

If you're on a budget you will be grateful to choose this hotel because it really isn't as bad as the reviews suggest.

Just come back from Amsterdam and stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. Absolutely no problems whatsoever! Staff were friendly and room was more than fine. Didn't make it down to breakfast on time so can't comment on that. The hotel is in a predominately Turkish/North African area?
But that was fine also.

Overall a good experience!

Stayed here for two nights for our friends birthday. Chose it because it was the cheapest. We were really worried about staying here after reading the dreadful reviews.

Very surprised....it wasn't all that bad! Room clean and beds made/fresh towels each day. Could not fault the bathroom - nice and modern. Free safe in the room. Reception staff were pleasant.

Carpet throughout the hotel was minging though! A big bag of crisps was stolen from my room!!! I'd give the breakfast a miss also. It is far out of the centre but the tram network is excellent.

If you're after somewhere cheap to sleep and shower whilst exploring Amsterdam then this hotel will serve you well......just don't forget to lock up your crisps!!!!
