Summary: For 85 Euros a night, I expected a little more. What I got was a glorified hostel, which is fine if I was paying hostel prices, but I don't consider 85 Euros to be hostel prices.
The Good: The place is quaint. It is a cute row house tucked away just off of a main street (and literally steps from the tram stop). It has the typical steep steps leading upstairs, and a fun door mechanism. It is a quiet location, which made for a nice night sleep. Additionally, we didn't hear any noise from the neighbors, so either we had quiet neighbors, or the walls are thick. The staff is pretty nice and friendly, although I had minimal interaction. Being a small hotel (AKA converted house), it only has a few rooms, and because of that, you often get to know the other guests, which can be good or bad. In this case it was great, as the other guests were all extremely nice and friendly, and we all exchanged contact information. For whatever reason, I think small places like this tend to attract nice people like that. We had a room with a bathroom. Toilet was clean, and bed linens were clean and nice.
The Less-than-good: The location is convenient and quiet, but I would not say it was in the center of town, as they say on the webpage. Map it out and see for yourself. It's more toward the south end of town. We rented bikes, which is a great way to see Amsterdam. With respect to the bathroom, the shower curtain was pretty gross; we didn't even want to touch it, as it had a slimy film on it. Breakfast was adequate, but nothing to write home about. Overall, I wouldn't say there was anything that was really just terrible, but I think a more fair price would be about 40-50 Euros.
