“Can't wait to go back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2012

We loved staying at the Amsterdam Cribs. Situated above Pick Up The Pieces coffee shop, this cozy B&B had everything a young traveler would need. Our room was clean and comfortable. The friendly live in staff provided us with extra comforters, pillows, and towels. Our room came equipped with a mini fridge, coffee maker, TV, and a private bathroom. The main focal point in our quaint room, had to be the two large windows that extended the length of one wall. At night, we would lie in bed and watch the hustle and bustle of the city into the late night hours.
Most importantly, we always felt safe. In order to get to our room, you had to go through three locked doors. And, Amsterdam Cribs is in a touristy neighborhood. The streets were crowded day and night. Restaurants, shops, museums, and public transportation surrounded us. The convenient location of this B&B was spectacular. We are very excited to check back in soon. We hope to have the same room-the White Widow.

Me and my friend have literally just got back from staying here. were both in our early 20's & female. The room looked nothing like the pictures i saw before booking. i expected alot more consideing the price we paid however its situated in the perfect area. Its literally just off the red light district but far enough away that you dont get all the noise. Its above a coffee shop, but the smoke isnt great. go to Goa's if you want good stuff. the guy who greeted us was a great help. he circled areas to go see in amsterdam and told us about where to watch out for. generally very pleased with our stay, although the 2 owners kept knocking our door and even let themselves in once. i didnt find this appropriate. i wouldnt recommend this hotel to elderly/disabled. the steps are horrible and i found myself crawling up them after nights out :p however the guy did take our cases up for us. overall i would reccommend this place if your young, and want somewhere close to the center :)

Me and my friends stayed at Amsterdam Cribs in the Power Plant room from the 23rd of January till the 25th and we had a great experience. The gentleman that greeted us on arrival was so down to earth and laid back he showed us to our room and as soon as we walked in we knew we would enjoy it. He also showed us great places to go have a smoke or eat etc etc. The room was so cosy and had TV, PS2, DVDs, Kitchen, fridge and all smoking utensils. The beds was comfy and the bedroom had no outside noise from the streets. The location of the place is very good as your 2 mins walk from the red light district and most of the shops. I cant think of one bad thing about this place and would defiantly recommend it to everyone as the price is a bargain for what you get in this place.

Myself and three friends stayed with Amsterdam Cribs over New Year 2011/2012 and had a fantastic time. The spacious apartment was in an unrivaled location, the facilities were plentiful and every room was spotless when we arrived. We really appreciated being able to smoke in the apartment as so many hostels/hotels do not allow this. Duke and Jon kindly went out of their way to help us when booking and when we arrived which was greatly appreciated. I cannot recommend this company enough! Thanks again.

I stayed in the Purple Haze room. Great place to stay if you want some place where you can smoke in the room. The room has a nice selection of bongs, pipes and grinders to use as well as a PS2. There's a mini fridge and a private bathroom w/ shower. Lighting is great and you have a view of the street below. The street can get pretty busy during the day but is surprisingly quiet at night. The location is close to some great coffeeshops and shopping. The stairs are some of the craziest I've experienced in Amsterdam but if I can make it up and down them while obliterated on a Hill St Blues Banana space cake(thanks for the suggestion Eric!) they can't be that bad. The only suggestion I have is a couple bean bags for the room. That would make it perfect! My #1 place to stay in Amsterdam!

I shared a place with a buddy of mine on the top floor on the NIEUWMARKT. Perfect location, clean, tidy place with enough room and just a cool place to hang out. The guy that was our 'landlord' was cool and helpful (when we were trying to figure out how to get the playstation working).

One thing, like most places in Amsterdam, the stairs are steep.. so be prepared for that.. but it's no biggie.

You can smoke here.. which is ideal because many hotels dont allow you to. You are right in the city centre and anywhere you want to go is a nice stroll.

Being an apartment, you have a kitchen area, lounge, decent bathroom and attic beds.. be a little careful, as the roof is low up here.

Absolutely I would stay there again, and definitely recommend it to other AMS travelers.

Stayed at crib/n1, an apartment on the first floor with 3 other friends, were all in our early twenties. Apartment is in an excellent location, down a relatively quiet side street but within a 5min walk to dam sq/damrak/red light district etc, next door to an Irish bar and beside restaurants/food shops/coffee shops. It was just what we needed, fully equipped little kitchen, large living room with ps2/dvds etc. plus we were allowed to smoke as we pleased, which is prohibited in hotels. Although its a standard apartment, it was clean and tidy, the heating was always on and we could come and go as we needed to so it really felt like home. Some may struggle with the steep/narrow stairs but we found that all stairs in Amsterdam were like this so you soon get used to them.
