“Strictly good vibes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2012

Myself and a group of friends stayed here last month for 4nights and 5days. Having been to Amsterdam before and not remembering an awful lot of it, this time I used this place as a base and explored a lot during the day. By night I went looking for filth and found lots of it. Studio 80 for a tech night was a particular highlight. The location is wicked for a group of 20something lads. The red light district is right there and depending on what kind of thing you might be looking for in such an area it could be pretty much ideal. Plenty of coffee shops, cafes, bars etc too. You pay a little more then you woud be doing in a hostel but this is all good as you got your own space.. Personally I thought that was a good call. Would I use it again.. Most certainly would.

Not going to write much as I reviewed this last year but just returned from another trip and still as good as usual.
Everything a smoker needs, clean and comfortable.

Thanks Duke for another great stay and a big thank you for the little present, very nice :o)
see you later in the year.

If you are a bunch of friends who are looking to sample some of the delights Amsterdam has to offer then The Cribs is a great place to stay. It may be a bit more expensive than staying in a hostel, but then you get a whole apartment to yourselves.
The apartment is situated right in the middle of the red light district, about 5 mins from Centraal Station. You have coffeeshops (I'd recommend the Green House - on the same street), bars (Baba's), supermarket, restaurants, red light section and the Dam Square all within a few minutes walk. The apartments are smoke-friendly and are pre-equipped with grinders, pipes and bongs. The spacious living room has a tv (cable), dvd player and hi-fi, the kitchen is stocked with some provisions, even the bathroom (with shower) has clean towels, shampoo, toothpaste, shower gel and deoderant. The apartments are clean and spacious though sparsely decorated, and due to the location there can be a bit of noise during shop opening hours. I would recommend this place to everyone except business people, disabled or elderly or perhaps families.

I've been to Dam many times and stayed in many places but this has to be the best so far.
Me and 3 friends all stayed at the apartment and had a brilliant time. The location was perfect, it was right in the middle of the red light and all good coffee shops. We had food shops and restaurant all round us and felt nothing was further then a 5 min walk. We was even 25 steps away from FEBOs.
The only problem we found which was not a big problem was there were no windows in our apartment just a big glass door. We stayed in the Basement apartment which says it all. They do have other apartment with windows.

We would most defiantly stay there again.

This review is for the address located on 41 OUDEZIJDS VOORBURGWAL. Four of us stayed here in the 2 bedroom apartment. It is 3 stories, with a bedroom on the top floor, living area and another bedroom on the middle floor and kitchen and 2 bathrooms on the bottom floor. We had a very easy check in experience and they let us check in early. We were given a map with very good explanation of the area and recommendations of what to visit and where to go. It felt very safe here and was in the heart of the red light district. We were within easy walking distance to most sites and actually only took the tram once. There is food and a market nearby.
The full kitchen was a very nice surprise and even had a dishwasher. The bathrooms were clean, but it was a minor inconvenience to walk downstairs to use them. We would definitely stay here again and recommend this to our friends.

We had 2 apartments and they were very spacious, clean with good facilities. The location was brilliant, situated in a quiet area of the red light district. The guy that met us to check in was really good giving us lots of information and was very friendly.
