When we arrived at the hotel we checked in no problem which was around 12 noon there was no bar area open as it was filled with building items however the entrance was rather nice, when we got to the second floor we notice computer which were free to use with vendee machines for your munchies the corridor is very narrow and it was undergoing building work with several room been refitted and equipment all over we though god! ( you cannot hear the work going on and there don’t work Sundays) however we went to our room and has gobsmacked it had lovely flooring bathroom rather large which was very new and dated a very nice telly fitted to the wall and 3 beds with a fair amount of room to move around however no chairs. I will say THERE ARE NO BED BUGS after coming in one night after been down the red light!! We tipped the room upside down and can happily say no bed bugs. Towels cleaned daily, food not worth getting up for however nice hotdog/ chip shop next door Adil over the road nice pizza the other side and shop further up with cheap boozes. Tram two mins away however you will need to get a tram to get any were as it takes 2 hour to walk or 25mins tram drive. Staff were very happy to help including been dizzy asking for change at 1am till 5am for munchies, i would stay here again however is a little far to travel to centre.

Me and my friend really can not sleep well at the afternoon when we back from town cus is very noisy in the hotel and also we try to ask the staff about the direction to the bus station, they are just rude and not happy to point me the way make me so upset for a day!

My dad and I stayed here on a layover to nairobi in 2008. the hotel staff told our travel agent (who had never booked a trip to ams before) that it was a 10 minute ride from the airport and close to the downtown area...boy were they wrong!!! we took a taxi to the hotel and it was about 30 min and nearl $200 CDN to get the the hotel. awful. we arrive just after check-in time but our room was not ready so they told us to wait and it would be ready at 4pm!!!! we asked if there was an area to put our suitcases until our room was ready...they pointed to a room with other stuff piled in it along with other suitcases...there were no labels saying this suitcase belongs to this room or any form of security...anyone could have wandered off with any of the bags in there. we were not happy. so we decided wander around the area and check things out. the area this hotel in is NOT a good area. it is close to a tram to get downtown...but by no means is it close to the downtown touristy area. when we got back from exploring our room was ready....so we walked up to the second floor with our heavy suitcases. none of the staff offered to help us. the hallway was dirty, the carpet was stained, it looked as though they were in the middle of fixing something with the ceiling, and it smelled like cigarettes the room was small. the sheets smelled musty and i'm really not sure when the bathrooms were cleaned. I wore my flip flops in the shower. the "free" internet was broken the entire time we were here (4 days). and as a final kick in the pants we asked if the metro station nearby went to the airport and the man at the desk said it did....so we walked down there with our luggage and found out it didn't go anywhere near to the airport. so we walked back to the hotel and got a taxi to the airport instead (it is 30 euros for hotel guests...i guess they have a deal with a certain cab company). I will never stay here again. the staff are rude and unhelpful, it is dirty, and in a bad area od town. DO NOT STAY HERE.

only book here if you dont mind travelling for 20 mins on the tram to central amsterdam every day
I stayed here with 3 friends for a fun filled weekend away. the first room we were given was a bad layout,cramped and the door would not lock. after a calm conversation with the man on the front desk we were given a different room with no fuss which we were much more happy with. we stayed in a quadruple room.the room is basic with 2 bunkbeds, a tv, clean bathroom and nice thick curtains to keep the light out! towels changed everyday. the room was very hot all the time but considering the cold rainy weather i rathered that to a cold room and it was lovely and toasty to come back to after trudging in the rain. its basically a block of flats converted into a hotel with a decent front entrance. the included breakfast is nothing special and very basic but hit the spot before we went on our travels for the day.(boiled eggs,bread, ham, cheese,yogurt,cereal,juicesand hot drinks) no trouble with noise or other guests.theres an aldi opposite the hotel to stack up on drinks and munchies for the hotel room. also a decent little kebab shop next door for a midnight munch.

travel tips:
the tram 13 takes you right outside the central amsterdam train station where all the coffee shops and tourist attracions are(when you come out of the hotel turn right,5 mins walk straight up to the roundabout and the tram stop is on the left of the roundabout)
there is the 352 night bus if you miss the last tram home,the stop to get on is located next to the canal cruise/excursions booking building up the road from central station,it comes from a different direction so watch out for the fast food shop which is located on the corner of the hotel or you will miss it!!
outside central station you can catch trains to schipol airport in 10mins.

overall the hotel is fine for a basic comfortable room with comfy beds to lay your head for the night as long as you dont mind a bit of travel which we didnt as we found getting lost and trying to work out the directions helped us to explore amsterdam a bit more.

We had a very bad experience with this hostel. The staff were very rude and didnt care about our enquiries and was very unhelpful. My friend and I ended up in a screaming match with the staff members because they were so rude in handling our enquiry.
The rooms were dirty, stinks of rotton carpet and you can hear everything on the other side of the wall and corridor. The location was a bit far from central Amsterdam.
Overall we dont recommend this hostel to anyone. Its not worth your hard earned money!
