“Tiny rooms in good location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2012

This was a little hard to find, but once there was okay. Close eateries etc. Included breakfast (continental) and the staff were helpful.

The rooms were tiny. We were located right next to the bathroom so heard it most of the night :(

Room Tip: Room away from toilets!

This is a difficult place to review. Usually I feel you should review somewhere according to how well it achieves what it sets out to do or to be. No-one criticizes an Indian restaurant for not having any Tex-Mex dishes. This hotel aims to provide safe, clean accommodation with a very basic investment in facilities - and it does just that. I stayed for four nights with a friend, in a room that was occupied about 60 percent by a reasonably comfortable twin bed. The breakfast was also very basic but welcome and served pleasantly.
The location is great - Haarlemmerstraat offers a unique Amsterdam combination of "coffeeshops", restaurants and pubs, and interesting shops. Ten minutes from Amsterdam Centraal (very close, but still a pain on a cold, rainy January night...), and also close to the lively and yuppie Jordaan neighborhood.
Having said all that - I can't give this more than two stars over all, simply because it is so very basic. As other reviewers have said, if you know what you're coming to, you shouldn't be disappointed.

The hotel itself isn't the most stunning to look at by any stretch of the imagination, the decor was quite old but still kept very clean which is a credit to the staff. For the price we paid, the service we got was great. The few staff there were really helpful and friendly, especially when we were asking for recommendations of where to go, they were more than happy to cook us breakfast a little later than advertised when we strolled down the stairs feeling worse for wear! The only stumbling point was the hugely steep stairs leading up to the rooms (excuse the pun), however this actually turned out to be great fun when rolling in at silly o clock in the morning! Location was also brilliant. Will definitely return.

Location of the hostel was good. We had a triple room which was quite tight on space, but the beds did the trick. The host was nice - everything was good and value was in line with what we had paid for.

We stayed at this hotel/hostel early Sept. Rooms we're clean but VERY small. We paid for a double room which was 2 single beds.
The bathrooms and showers were also both really small. As a person that is 5'9" it was a tight squeeze! We were on the top floor which is a good 46 stairs to get there.
Locations was amazing! Not a bad value for what we paid 70.00EUR/night with breakfast included!

To clarify, a 3 out of 5 here doesn't mean it was bad at all. It was average, and given the budget I (and presumably other travelers) was working on, I'd stay here again. The good: Staff was helpful and friendly, able to provide recommendations on food, bars and sightseeing. Of the three hostels I stayed in during my trip with my two brothers, the food here was the best (which isn't to say it was great, but having eggs to complement the usual bread and jam was nice). I was never worried about security, and the location (right near Central Station) was great, particularly when arriving and leaving. The bad: lots of steps (we were on the top floor), small room and beds, food was mediocre, communal shower and bathroom. Again, especially for young travelers on a budget, this hostel was totally fine, and if I couldn't afford something nicer, I could see myself coming back.
