If your a smoker this is the place for you. Eric who met us when we arrived was great. He marked up a few places on the map to visit i.e places for food , coffee shops and bars.we were given Two sets of keys to are pad and Eric was always on hand if you needed help with anything. Me and my mates loved are visit and will be back in November and will be booking dam cribs again .

Since most of Amsterdam hotels are now smoke-free, it is really a relief to find a place where you are not forced to step outside to light a cigarette. Of course, if you want to smoke something else, Amsterdam Cribs are EVEN BETTER.

Me and my brother booked the Purple Haze suite and stayed there for three nights. Eric, the guy who runs the place, was very nice to us when we arrived. He showed us the comunal kitchen fully equipped and tell us that we were free to eat anything on the fridge (as long as we don't eat EVERYTHING). There was bread, cheese, ham, mayonese, mustard and some other condiments for sandwiches, and also some egs, soda and milk.

In our room we also found four Heinekens on the fridge, a lot of soap, shampoo and toothpaste left by other guests at the bathroom, an X-Box with 10 games (or more), a bong, two glass pipes, tree grinders and even some WEED.

Eric even gave us a DISCOUNT when we pay because he hasn't got the change!

We called Eric when we landed in Amsterdam and he told us how to get to the hostel and that he'd meet us there. We showed up and he helped us with our stuff and gave us the low down on the city (which coffee shops were best to go to and the sites and such). He let us print our tickets to some museums on his printer in his room so that we could skip the lines at the actual sites which was really clutch. Some of the downsides are the narrowness and the steepness of the stairs, but if you can get beyond that, this is an awesome place to crash for a couple of nights. There is also some construction currently going on on the exterior of the building. It didn't wake us up because it was on the opposite side of the building from where we were sleeping, but I guess could pose a problem if one is a light sleeper and is trying to sleep in in the morning.

This place was really cool and very much a smoker's resort. The place had TONS of paraphernalia (grinders, bowls, bongs, the works). The kitchen would have been clutch but we didn't make use of it since the food in Amsterdam is to die for. The stairs were a little tough but unless you're a total crybaby it shouldn't matter. We had a TV and a shower right there. The room was nice. It cost a little too much but we didn't make use out of a lot that it had to offer. I'd suggest this for groups of 4 or more. Taking over the whole house would be INSANE.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2008

5 of us stayed in a 2 bed apartment in the red light district, very good value for money - the same if not cheaper than a hostel. Handy location, only a few minutes away from Central Station. A little noisy with a coffee shop directly downstairs and the new smoking laws but we weren't in Amasterdam to sleep so wasn't a big issue.

Went to amsterdam on a stag do with 5 of my mates, and have to say we could'nt have hoped for a better place.
smack bang in the middle of everything and just 2 mins walk from dam square, if your looking for a no nonsence appartment in the heart of amsterdam then look no further and book today.
its run by a sound couple of geezers from the states, friendly and helpful, gave us a great list of locations to go see, and always on call if you get stuck.

this was my 3rd trip to the dam and by far the best!

nuff said!
