The hotel is pleasant, but has a backpacker feel - definitely ok for younger people but wouldn't recommend for older people or families. (There's a Best Western nearby that looked nice for a little more a night!) The rooms are clean enough, and pleasant. And surprisingly quiet considering the large groups of people who seem to be the main guests.... More

This is an economical, no-frills hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, the staff pleasant and helpful, but the rest of the hotel was a little "down at the heels". We didn't try the restaurant, the food bar or the vending machines as the prices were typically exorbitant and there is a Lidl a couple of blocks away. The location... More

Stayed here for 2 night's and the price was very good, 104 euro for two nights. But the room was to cold, tried to get it some warmer. Without any luck and this was not a good ting. The pizzeria and pasta snackbar in the lobby serves good food to a decent price. I recommend this hotel without children.

For the value of the hotel, it's perfect. You get free WiFi, bus stop around the corner to go to central so its not too far (20 mins roughly), TV in your room, shower, hair dryer and the staff were extremely helpful.

Having read so many negative reviews of this hotel beforehand I asked myself could I have gone for something better. The hotel is situated about 10 miles out of the centre of Amsterdam and at one end you have the tram(500m) and 2 minutes away you have the Metro so to get to the centre of Amsterdam is easy. Having... More

This hotel is absolutely filthy, I will let the pictures speak for themselves. Charging people to stay in that filth. I was horrified The area is very rough, customer service was horrible, rooms were so dirty/dusty/smelly. Room doors kept unlocking. Hairs on beds, old dirty mattresses. Was so shocked to hear works going on in the middle of the night... More
