The B&B was in a very good location. We tended to walk everywhere, apart from to and from the station with our suitcase. This was perfectly OK but our legs felt it by the third day.
We chose the B&B partly due to the price and partly because we wanted somewhere quiet. It fulfilled both of these requriements.
We stayed on the top floor which had a microwave and a sink. The stairs were very steep but made it part of the novelty of staying in an old Dutch house.
The breakfast was more than enough for several meals; the fruit juice was fresh and delicious.
Our problem was with the over-zealous behaviour of the host. We were asked for our payment every time he saw us, from the first time we set foot in the B&B. He also came out of his room every time we came in or went out we were pounced upon; although he was simply being friendly, it made us very conscious and guilty, even though we weren't doing anything wrong.
So, in summary, a good deal but marred somewhat by 'landlord-itis'.
Recommended with reservations - depends on how invasive you would find the attention.

I am finally getting around to writing a review of Hansje's property. We were so surprised with the quality of the place and its very convenient location. Once you learn how to use the trams and get a multi trip ticket from the Tourist Office at the Rail Station (1st floor) you have no problems getting around.

The B&B is very close to a traim station making it very easy to get to and to get around Amsterdam. Walking is another option as it is close to many attractions and Amsterdam is a lovely city.

Hansje is very welcoming, and helped us navigate the stairs to the top floor unit. It is very spacious and the extra bedroom allowed us to leave our bags there and not clutter the main room. As mentioned before it has a small kitchenette and bathroom. The bathroom has everythig, from shampoos to cleaners etc.

The breakfasts are huge and Hansje provided plastic bags to allow you to take the leftovers (and there will be leftovers) with you for lunch. We were able to make enough breadrolls for the two of us as well as our two friends. That was after haveing eaten what we wanted for breakfast. Hansje even gave us two bottles of wine when we arrived.

He is a font of knowledge about what to see and eat in Amsterdam. We were asked to not make a lot of noise but this did not pose a problem and we had no issues with this. The stairs are a challenge but only when arriving. After that they are a bit of exercise because you are out most of the day.

I was delighted with the price and the quality and would definately stay here again.

Yes there are steep stairs and yes there are issues regarding privacy but having said that the welcome and attention to detail of Martin was second to none and at a very reasonable price. Breakfasts were superb with fresh orange juice and enough meat, cheese, croissants, bread rolls, yoghurt's and conserves to satisfy anybody. We stayed on the first floor room but had access to Martins kitchen to make ourselves a drink at any time. Martin provide loads of local information as well as restaurant recommendations and The Rough Guide to Amsterdam is there for guests to use.

If we go back to Amsterdam, which we hope we shall, we will book Martin's B&B again.

We stayed here for 2 nights in September 2008. We had the studio room at the top which had its own kitchenette, a small spare room, and a bathroom. It was fine. The only major problem was the 56 VERY steep stairs and, as others have said here, the need to be quiet late at night or early in the morning. That being said, it was a fine location in terms of being relatively close to the center and right off a tram stop. We easily walked or took the tram everywhere. The breakfast was great and Martin packed a to-go box for us the morning we flew out as it was quite early. It was getting a bit cold and the first night he didn't turn on the heat, saying "it's not cold" but the next night he did as he saw we had to pull extra blankets out of the closet. Food was good, beds were comfortable, Martin had some good recommendations on restaurants, a good map, etc.

Overall this property was fine, but the number of steep narrow steps and the need to be ultra quiet was a drawback. Also was a bit stingy with towels and heat. Otherwise, fine place to stay.

Just got back from a two night stay. Room was clean, bed comfortable. Breakfast was great. Its about a 30 minute walk to the center.

Privacy is a real issue with this B&B. We stayed in the unit that overlooked the canal. You have to go up 2 floors of steep steps to reach the room. Walking even in socks disrupts the owners who live in the unit below. A window next to the sink has no curtain, so anyone can look into the entire room and watch you.

Martin is very nice, but 2-3 times a day knocking on the door to see if everything is ok is disruptive. We made sure to be for the night before 11:00 pm not to disrupt Martin and his wife.

Would probably stay somewhere else next time to have more privacy.
