“Cheap but difficult to find.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2013

We booked this hotel/hostel because of the price, it was cheap. We had a six person room for 100 english pounds each for three nights. The hotel is about a hours walk from Amsterdam central station, as my little suitcase looks battered. It is difficult to find, so i suggest you take a detailed map, tucked away on a residiental street. There isnt much around the hotel so you need to walk 10minutes before you find the nearest bars or points of interest. The rooms were cleaned daily to a adquate standard, and clean towels provided however our shower broke.

If i was to visit Amsterdam again i would stay closer to the centre.

No idea what some of the previous reports are talking about. I visited the hotel with 6 others on a stag do. We'd read the reviews about blood on sheets and dirty rooms, rude staff etc... before coming out but we found none of this.

Staff were very helpful and caring when one of the group had a little bit too much smokey smoke.

Rooms were clean and sheets tidy - no sign of bed bugs and we had plenty of space. Two rooms a 3 and a 4 bunk.

Overall a very good stay and the location is perfect.

Room Tip: If you are a family then obviously this hotel/hostel is not for you but for groups and travellers it...

Staff are incredibly rude and un friendly, barley got a word out of them, was not told about local attractions etc, just given key and that was all, not even directions to our room. Room was not cleaned once, towels were changed once in 5 days. The second day they took towels and never have replacements! No windows in our room?! Was not explained fire exits in that fact! There is no bar! (As in its there but empty and not open). "Continental breakfast" consisted of bread, cheese, ham and Nutella. (Apple juice/ coffee if your lucky). Then when we checked out i used the lobby toilet (about midday) and it was covered (all over the seat) in waste... Worst hotel ever!!!

The hotel was very clean, cleaner than me and my friends expected. The bed sheets were all very white and I didn't feel dirty at all sleeping in them.

The rooms were very safe, there were 5 of us and we shared with 3 others in an 8-bed room. Each person had their own locker which they could set their own pin code to.

Locker was very loud when entering pin so that was annoying when we were trying not to wake people in late hours.

Breakfast came free with the hostel every morning between 7-10am. This included a nice fresh selection of sandwich material, fresh juices, coffee, tea, bread, jam, chocolate spread (all you can eat buffet of course).

Location was great, it was a 2 minute walk to the tram (number 5). From there we could head straight into centraal station which is the centre of Amsterdam.

Staff were polite and very helpful.
Best of all the price was really cheap, I would definitely stay there again.

We stayed for three nights 28th-31st Jan.

Before booking we read lots of reviews on this site and booked despite comments about bed bugs, bad breakast and rude staff. Glad we took the chance as it had none of these!

Inner is split into hotel and hostel and we stayed in a hotel room.

We navigated ourselves from Schipol Airport to Inner and found every step of the journey simple. Go to the bus terminal outside the AP, find the 197 stand and get off at Miseumplein (€4- a screen on the bus tells your the next stop just before you get there). Get off take a left, then first left off the Main Street, first left again past a fashionable homeware shop, then first right and Inner should be on your left hand side on the corner.

Check in was simple and the staff very pleasant and helpful (asked for an extra pillow, dealt with very politely and efficiently).
We got to the room and were pleasantly surprised. It was clean, adequately sized, bright and pretty enough. Huge windows gave a beautiful view of the Amsterdam city scape. The bathroom was large, well stocked with roll, soap and shampoo and the shower powerful and hot. Noticed there was also a free and easy to operate safe in the wardrobe. We also had a TV in the room which also had English language channels. The room was no smoking.

Breakfast was very continental and I can see why people were disappointed if they expected a proper hotel breakfast. There was a good selection however, cold meats, cheese, bread, biscuits, cereal, jam, fruit juices tea and coffee. My partner was disappointed but I made a big salami, ham and cheese sandwich each morning.
The only grumbles with breakfast would be that the dining area is very scruffy and run down. Seems to be used as a storage area and was the site of some long forgotten dream for a bar. There was also no toaster!

The area was really lovely and residential and took about 10 mins to walk right into the centre, past all the museums (but Van Gough was closed for renovation) and IAmsterdam sign. Inner is also a very short walk to a few of the best coffee shops we went to. Rookies, which has a very relaxed pub feel. And De Dampkring- translates as 'The Atmosphere' which really says it all. Also, look out for Bowie, the cute but temperamental resident cat.
It was quite a walk up to Dam Square and the RLD, but nothing took more than 30mins to walk to.

Overall, we were very impressed with Inner as a budget hotel. For the very little money you pay, you get a bright, clean room, friendly staff with a central location. Thumbs up!
