Having looked at a lot of reviews for budget hotels in Amsterdam and seeing that most of them are abysmal, we found the Bicycle Hotel to be perfectly sufficient. Finding it was difficult, in large part because we missed our tram stop, but once you're a block away you can't miss it, thanks to the bicycles bolted to the 2nd floor of the building's facade. The hotel was pretty clean, although for a longer stay, I would probably spring for something a little nicer. The bathroom in our triple room upstairs didn't smell fantastic, for example. Our room had nice big windows, a TV with an English language channel (though why you would want to spend time in Amsterdam watching TV I don't know), and three adequate beds. Tram stops aren't far away, which is nice because it's a bit of a hike (although completely doable) to the centre of town.
A lot of reviewers on TripAdvisor freak out about small things, but you get what you pay for, and this place does the trick for a weekend. It's hard to beat the price, anyway.
