My partner and I are 53 and 45 and were a little concerned that we'd feel out of place as there were no reviews from our age group. We needn't have worried. We were welcomed with a genuine smile, offered useful information such as locker use, breakfast times etc.
We had tried to book the Deluxe double for 3 nights but it was only available for the last 2 of our 3 day stay. We knew that before we went as we booked on line. Our 1st night was in the Standard double (room 704) This room was fabulous. Bright, clean, modern and fresh with wooden furniture. It had an en suite with a bath and shower. A painted mural, titled Lola, on the main wall really cheered us up and we knew we were in Amsterdam ;-) The Deluxe suite was equally nice (room 609) but only had a shower -no bath. It did however have a balcony (handy if you're a smoker) - there's a smoking room down in the bar. The deluxe room was painted in a deep plush red with a gold framed 'deluxe' painting of 'lots of Lolas' The furniture was more modern (glass and chrome)The balcony was worth upgrading for but we thought the standard double was so good we'd happily have stayed there 3 nights.
Despite some of the reviews i've read, we couldn't hear any noise at all from downstairs or outside. The music in the bar area was alternative, soul, blues and really well chosen we thought.
Breakfast consists of a buffet which has - 6 varieties of bread - boiled egg - sliced cheese, ham and salami - 4 cereals - 3 fruit juices or milk - hot drinks from a machine - jams and butter. All free and included in the price of your room.
The meals from the hotel bar are outstanding and not what you'd expect from a hostel. Really good quality, freshly made burgers were to die for.
The staff are happy, helpful and clearly love what they're doing.
Would highly recommend for all age groups of open minded, fun loving people.
