“Rock Mood”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013 via mobile

Backstage Hotel it's a rock mood hotel between the west and the south canal ring.
Well located, with an amazing staff, we can play some instruments at the bar or even at the room.
Tursdays there's a "Open Microphone" contest at the bar until 12:00pm.

This place by far exceeded our expectations. We stayed for 3 nights and had a private twin both nights with a shared bathroom. First off, every person that we spoke with on the staff was super friendly and helpful..they were all just great. The rooms were also very large and had a great design (drums as lights on the ceiling), vanity with lights to get ready and each room had a sink in it which was also very continent. The beds were comfortable as well. The hostel is in one of the best locations possible..you are by tons of restaurants and places to hang out / drink. You can easily walk to anywhere from the hotel so it's super convenient. I could not recommend a better experience. It was by far the best hostel I have stayed in over 8 weeks through Europe and South America!!

I really enjoyed and loved this hotel during my vacation.Stuff is very helpful for every little thing!If you wanted to stay near city center, this hotel is best!It's near tram and bus stop either -if you rent a bike- it's very close to bikeparks.You just lock your bicycle and walk about 1 minute then you're in BackStage!

We just got back from Amsterdam following a two night stay at the backstage hotel. Location wise the hotel was really easy to get to from the airport. Bus number 197 from the airport takes you direct to Liedsplein in 30 minutes and 4 euros and then the hotel is only a short walk away.

We arrived at the hotel quite early, around 11am, and the girl on reception was very friendly and made our day when she said we could check in early as the room was all ready to go. This made a great start to our trip. We then went out exploring into Leidsplein, where there was a Starbucks, McDonalds and many restaurants and bars to choose from. It was a great location and we didn't need to walk far for most of the sites like the i amsterdam sign.

On the second day we reaslied our room door wasn't locking and we were able to open the door from the outside without a key. When i spoke to the male on receptionist about this he actually asked us to go find the housekeeping team member and ask him to take a look at it. I asked if he could call him and he replied "he doesn't answer his phone". So off i went to look for this housekeeping team member of one of the floors. He came to the room and was unable to fix it and he then asked us to go back down to reception to let them know. At this point, i was quite annoyed as there didn't seem to be any communication between housekeeping or reception.Then the receptionist turned up saying he spoke to his manager and should now be able to fix the door himself, which he did.

I would of rated this hotel 5 stars had the male receptionist handled the situation a bit better.

The room iteself was very clean and spacious. There was five of us in their 5 person bedroom and we didn't feel like it was small for all five of us.

All in all, a good visit and highly recommened you staying here. Very reasonably priced in comparison to a lot of other hotels in the area for that time of year

Just the kind of hotel for those of you who travels alone. Affordable, only a walking distance to the major attractions especially Dam Square, a very happening place. Tram stops and bus stops are easy to reach. Though I get the feeling that smoking inside the hotel lobby isn´t forbidden cause I can smell the smoke from my room. My room was just above the entrance. Be careful with the stairs though as they are pretty steep and small.

Loved it! Everything about this hotel was easy, easy to find, easy check in, easy to find our way around from this hotel as a base. It had a very comfortable bed, good tv, the room was big enough for one and the price was right. It's obviously not the Ritz, as you share toilets and showers but that fine for me. Won't stay anywhere else next time I'm in beautiful Amsterdam.

Our whole family we decided to stay at this hotel for its location and because they had a rooms for 5 people. It is a Rock'an'Roll theme hotel with a very good location near tram and many spots. Rooms are well decorated, huge for all of us, clean bathroom and nice view to the canals. Be careful with the stairs, something common in all the houses!
The staff were great and they helped us in anyting we asked for. They have breakfast every morning, continental one that it is enough to start walking around the city.
Even the area is very central, the nights were quiet and the days we´ve been there, it was snowing giving a Xmas special touch.
If we come back to Amsterdam, we won´t hesitate to choose again BackStage! Congratulations guys.
