It was very small, which is fine of you don't plan on spending much time there. Otherwise, don't count on decent Wifi (They said it was in the rooms, but could never get it to work). Service wasn't great - Front desk people were off-putting.
Also had unexpected 15 Euro deposit for key. Sort of infuriating when you're already short on cash. Make sure to have enough cash to cover deposit as well as the room fee or else they'll take on an extra 5% for a credit/debit card fee.
Rooms weren't bad, and beds strangely comfortable. Far from train station, but trams are easy to navigate. Again, good if you want to be close to museums or Vondlepark, but a hike from city centre or RLD if you plan on walking everywhere.
Probably wouldn't stay again, but it's cheap and in a safe neighborhood. Would recommend if you're out all day and just need a place to crash.
