“Much better than reviews suggest”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 4, 2014

We were worried having read the reviews but we had a good experience. The receptionist on 10.4.14 was excellent and gave us a superb rate on breakfast for the three children - 2.50 Euros apiece. The room - number 10 - was fine, clean and although there was a lot of noise from the room next door with doors banging, it was only to be expected. The one sour note was breakfast on the last day 12.4.14 when the new guy on the desk refused to give us the same breakfast rate and said that that applied to children under three. As ours were well over that I can't imagine the first guy made a mistake , so that was disappointing. We had a lovely breakfast at the Concert-gebouw next door. While the hotel is basic and is really a hostel, the location is fantastic - get the number 5 tram from the Centraal Station - you won't be too disappointed.

Room Tip: Room 10 -three sets of bunks - was perfect for a family of 5

Just back from a two night stay at inner. Was dubious because of awful reviews but my doubts about the place were soon forgotten. On arriving early morning in the dam I emailed the hostel to ask if we could leave luggage before check in, got a reply straight away. Headed there dropped luggage in locked luggage room and was also told there were free safety deposit boxes if needed. Friendly reception staff nice first impression. Check in quick and simple got given two room keys for our twin en suite. Yes corridors are bit shabby but didn't bother us we weren't sleeping in them. Room was decent size, laminate floors were clean, furniture modern and clean. Fresh towels supplied, shower gel and hand soap in bathroom. Shower hot and spacious. Beds were two singles pushed together when I sat on it was so soft I sank right in but after an early flight and all day walking the city we both slept like babies. Fresh towels supplied next day too and also reception open 24/7. Didn't use any communal areas but looked like plenty seating for larger groups. Bottom line if on a budget wanting clean friendly accommodation and u don't mind being bit further out you can't go wrong here. It is a hostel but surely when booking people realise this. Would stay again!!!!!!

This hostel is perfect for a few nights, it has the basic. It is clean. The bathroom has everything you need. It does get a little hot at night but apart from that the beds are comfortable. The receptionists were extremely helpful and friendly. The location is again very good as it is not right in the town but the tram is just round the corner and it is near all the main museums.

We stayed here for one night and were very impressed. The rooms were clean and the location was central so it was perfect for touristy stuff. The staff were so helpful and kind and they let us leave our bags here for 2 days and we weren't even staying here. Great value for money if you're staying in the hostel and eating your own food. Nice dining room area which is communal and you get to see a lot of people so it's quite social. And free wifi! Bonus. Two thumbs up if you're on a budget :)

As a hostel this is ok. The accommodation is what you would expect and is clean and comfortable. It is however expensive for what you get when compared to the YHA for example. What spoilt the whole experience for us was the appalling service from a member of the reception staff on the second morning. He was disinterested, abrupt and accused us of lying about the breakfast deal we were given the morning before. I have never been treated so poorly by 'hotel' staff before

I see that there is a lot of negative feedback here, and quite frankly I think it's undeserved. You're not getting a luxurious hotel here, but keep in mind that that's not what you're paying for either. This hotel is really cheap, centrally located, has friendly staff and clean, basic rooms, most of them with bunk beds. A pub on the main floor, which also serves a basic breakfast in the mornings. Would recommend for school trips, groups of friends, et cetera, and will probably stay here again myself :)

Very close to the Van Gogh museum, so the location is great. However, this is a hostel, not a hotel, so the standards are not high. The private bathroom was clean, but the rest was pretty basic. There were 6 beds in the room, so there was always someone coming in. I guess that these are the standards for all hostels, but the less beds in the room, the better. Considering the price of €45 for 2 nights, I'm sure there are better options in Amsterdam.
