A friend and I booked here for a three night stay, on the basis of an Amsterdam hotels web-site entry, which described it as simple but comfortable, and had an OK photo of a room.
The price was in the budget range (230 euros each for 3 nights), so one wasn't expecting too much, but even so the experience was fairly poor. My friend's bed was under a sloping roof and his room had no curtain; mine had wiring exposed, two areas of missing plaster, bare lightbulbs and a window that would't close properly, which made it very noisy. The rooms were up four exceptionally steep staircases. Although the towel was changed each day, the beds weren't made. Breakfast was served in a cafe next door and was extremely limited.
On the positive side the location couldn't be more central, and the central heating was efficient.
So probably only to be considered if you are willing to rough it a little; certainly I shan't be going back in a hurry
