“Not bad!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2013 via mobile

We've recently stayed in the acostar. The staff seemed to be friendly enough. The room size was allright, not the biggest but we did not have the highest expectations.
Locationwise one of the bests! Everything is just a minute away.
Stairs can be exhausting after a long day of having fun :)

Stayed December 2013, traveled with friends

I wasn´t expecting much from a low-cost hotel but the rooms really were tiny and the carpets were all stained (I dread to think what with!). No lift and we had a room on the 4th floor. The stairwell smellt stale and smoky despite the fact that smoking is forbidden in the hotel.
Definitely don´t go there with children as it´s next to a sex shop and opposite a kinky gay club.
The only good thing about it was the fact that you can easily walk there to most places.

It is close to shops, supermarkets, restaurants and pubs! it's a walking destination the city centre and the museum square if you are used to walking!
our room was not too big, but for two it was ok! the bathroom was perfect! they changed the towels everyday and they gave us soap and showergel as much as we wanted everyday! Friday night was a bit loud the streets around, but i guess that's happening all over the city!!
will be back for sure

The location is perfect but the room was tiny. The room our friends stayed in was even tinier! They couln't even walk around the bed. We stayed for one night only, so we didn't have any luggage. But there's no place for a suitcase! Wen we arrived it was very hot in the room. We opened a window but you could't leave it open at night because of the noise. The modern bathroom was ok but the smell wasn't... Breakfast was good though.

The rooms very but very dirty. There was mosquitos smashed on the walls. The rooms stinks.
The receptionist didn't have any idea whatsoever about places, directions, etc.
The internet doesn't work at all in the room.
The worst thing of the hotel was that they didn't change the towels. I went downstairs to ask in a nice way to do it when I was going out all day to visit the city. My surprise when i came back that they didn't change it. I asked again and the receptionist didn't do anything.
I would never recommend it at all not even for the price cause it was expensive.
Just one thing is good wich is the location

Room Tip: Please keep searching. Trust me this is not quality.

Location: Perfect, just in the middle between Leidsplein and Dam square. A lot of shops nearby, restaurants and hangout places.
Street is quiet after 10-11 pm

Room: Booked 3 months in advance and got one of the smallest rooms in the hotel on the 4th floor with no elevator.
Basically you get a place to sleep, a toilet and a shower. Barely any place to stand and even put the luggage.
The guy at the counter said it's normal for Amsterdam cause they give away the biggest rooms for early booking. The room smelled a bit like bad sewage.
Building is old = paper thin walls, if you have trouble sleeping you should bring earplugs.

Breakfast: Basic but more then worthy of the price.

Staff: extremely nice, helpful and polite.
Didn't have an extra blanket we asked but that's not really up to the staff.

Value for money: you get a basic room with in a comfortable location for a low price.

If you're young and don't mind the stairs - worth a look, just book as early as possible.
If you're older and can't climb to the 4th floor I would avoid staying here.

Room Tip: Prefer lower floors - stairs are very steep Rooms that end with "6" are the smallest - ab...
