Good value hostel. Small room (but too hot!), shared bathrooms. Close to city center (by tram). They have a great breakfast, with vegan options. Wifi was very slow sometimes. Steep stairs. Would definitely stay there again.

Very nice hotel, close to the center (10 minutes by tram), helpfull staff, good free breakfast (omelet and many types of jam), shared but clean bathroom. A few bad points: our room was way too hot, and the heater was already on minimum. Wifi didn't work sometimes. Terrible staircase if you have huge heavy bags like we did. Overall, it... More

Me and ten friends stayed for a birthday weekend it was only 50 euro each with breakfast for two nights. The rooms were basic and clean and all the bedding was freshly washed, unfortunately you have to share a toilet with others. There were several occasions when I found the toilets In a bad way, also the showers are a... More

Toilet is communal and good luck fitting in there if your bigger than average. Our room smelt strongly of Cannabis and was sickening as we both don't smoke. Approached staff about the smell but did not seem to care. Steep stairs and no lift. Wifi is very, very slow. Breakfast very basic and not served until after 8am.

Hotel was definitely more than what I expected. Great location, helpful staff (specifically the American man and woman on reception), tidy rooms with adequate facilities, considering what we paid for the stay, and a friendly vibe. I had no problem with the shared bathroom as they were cleaned daily and not once did I have to wait in line to... More

The one thing my family and I were not prepared for was the shared bathroom; the room came with a shower and sink (but no floor towel/mat so it was very slippery), no toiletries were included too.. The room was big (we got the family room so there were 4 single beds plus 1 double decker..internet was good which made... More

This hotel was a great price and has everything you need. It is quite basic but for the price I would definitely stay here again. Away from the main centre, it is about a 15 minute walk, although the metro is very close by.The man working at the weekend was very welcoming and friendly and couldn't have been more helpful.He...

Get what you pay for. The hotel was clean and mostly comfortable. The breakfast was very very basic and there was no cold drinks served at breakfast. The staff were pleasant enough, however when my partner and I were trying to read a map of the area, the guy behind the desk asked us to move as he was busy.... More

This hotel is in an excellent location. Away from the Amsterdam Center confusion but close enough to visit Amsterdam without transport. I can walk to alot of locations from here and enjoy the quiet location. The staff is amazing, friendly and a lot of fun. They are always happy to help. The rooms are not luxarurious but do the trick... More

It's in a quiet neighborhood. The staff were knowledgeable. The bed in room 6 was super comfy with plush pillows. They have scrambled eggs for breakfast with toaster on each table. Nice touch! Plus, they have a safe in each rooms. Just a heads-up, the walls are thin and there is no towels available in your rooms. I would stay... More

Staying in Plantage & the East

Neighborhood Profile
Plantage & the East
The eastern edge of central Amsterdam provides visitors with the chance to imagine the city that Rembrandt called home (and to tour his historic house) while shopping like the thriftiest of locals at Waterlooplein’s massive flea market, or even enjoying a craft beer beside the tallest wooden windmill in The Netherlands. This verdant, serene, and stately part of town is home to Artis Royal Zoo, one of Europe’s oldest (and still best kept) zoos, and Hortus Botanicus, one of the oldest botanical gardens in the world. It's also an ideal setting for the Dutch outpost of St Petersburg’s Hermitage.
