“fantastic place and amazing design”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

We stayed here for 4 nights and 5 days and it was all perfect, our room was really clean and the hotel design was very peculiar and young. Staff was very nice and kind.
The hotel is just in front of a tram stop (13) that brings you in 10/15 minutes to the centre of the city, the Dam square, and then from there you can visit all the greatest attractions of this beautiful city.
We will surely come back here.

This is quite a new place so everything is still in a good condition. However keep in mind, this is not a hotel but a students' dormitory. For a long term stay it probably provides a lovely accommodation and facilities, but for a short stay it's really not a right place. If you are coming to Amsterdam alone and you want company, there is always someone to play ping pong or basketball with there but if you are planning to do only a quick city tour, then don't waste your time here.
The hotel is a bit further from the centre, even though there is a metro and tram stop just outside. The room is very basic. Probably the most basic you will ever have: a bed and a tv. No cups or glasses, not decorations on the walls, no phone, no trash bin or blow drier in the bathroom. I had no problems with its cleanliness (and the maid did knock asking if I needed any cleaning to be done) and there was free wifi but I just didn't feel like it was worth the money I paid. There are better places closer to the city centre (or in the city centre) that cost less so I think the next time I will just stay there instead of trying new hotels.
Also, don't forget they don't accept cash, only the credit cards.

Stayed one night

Pros: Comfy bed, clean room, easy check in, kitchen in room! Wifi. Nice cafe downstairs
Not fancy - but great value.

Cons: promised (in marketing, website, etc) bike was not available, extra taxes to pay on check in, no cups or basics to make hot drink in room. Also - quite a way out of town.

Overall, great if you are a student looking to spend term time in Amsterdam - but they need to work on the weekenders and holiday makers like us.

if you plan to organize stuff in the room there is no closet,no place to put anything except on the table and couple of drawers. in the shower only a sink and a toilet, except that the room is pretty good and the bed comfy. one problem that there were no trash can in our room, and when we asked the reception they gave us plastic bag and never gave a trash can eventually. also one small problem that they told me by phone that there is a kitchen that we will be able to use but at the reception the girls said its only for students that live there and not for tourists. besides that the location is pretty good the hotel is clean and lobby very beautiful. besides lack of kitchen pretty good value for the money.

Room Tip: choose room on upper floors cause the down floorse face to bus station.

I recently stayed at the student hotel in Amsterdam, on business. The rooms are basic, but clean, the bar is good, the staff friendly and efficient. There is a fantastic common area, with great facilities. Well worth a visit!
