Got landed in this hotel thanks to our hostel somehow double booking our room. First impressions are not the greatest but once you are there it is absolutley fine.
The stairs up are steep, narrow and dark. Once in all the staff seemed very friendly and we were given the room nearest to the toilet. The room itself was very very basic but ok for a group of 5 guys just looking to enjoy Amsterdam. The sheets and towels supplied all seemed clean, beds themselves varied as most were ok but some just felt like sleeping on concrete. The room itself was very spacious, had a window that looked out onto a brick wall. Not the worst thing in the world and actually turned out ideal as smoking is permitted in the hotel.
1 toilet and 1 room with shower and toilet. Both very clean and the shower itself was actually really good. Never heard any other guests in the hotel either. Free wifi and tea/coffee between 9am and 12noon and also gave us some vouchers for other places.
Location itself is ideal, not far away from the town and also the red light district. Central station is also well within walking distance. If needed there are tram routes and bike hire very close by.
Overall I would definitely not have chosen this place myself, but for just a group of guys looking to enjoy Amsterdam it was not the worst place in the world we could of landed. Pretty shabby and could use some renovation work but the people are friendly enough.
