“FRIENDLY, GOOD BREAKFAST AND GREAT LOCATION”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2013

A small hotel with basic rooms accessed by steep Amsterdam stair. Recommended for the traveller on a budget as its location is excellent (5 mins from main station) and in the heart of busy area. A good buffet breakfast is provided and staff are friendly and helpful.

Myself and 4 friends stayed here in the 5 bedroom dorm facing the weormstratt, the room was tidy, bit of a steep climb on the stairs but most old school amsterdam propertys are the same.

for a start the location was great right on a busy party strip full of clubs, bars and and a few of my favourite cofeeshops baba and hillstreet blues.


We had very few issues with this hotel the one issue we did have was the flies in the hallway but I could'nt complain as it was between 25-30 degrees and this is a common thing.

We had no problems what so ever with smoking in our room (weed) in which was allowed.

the breakfast - DOES THE JOB - not the best but gets you your essentials for a busy day ahead, meats toast cereal coffee juice yoghurts etc. Also our flight was later the next day and they allowed us to store our bags in the storage closet.

overall good stay and had a great time

ISSUES -

Quite loud but after being amsterdammed it doesnt really matter

Shared toilet and shower - can be a right pain racing to get to a shower everyday.

How early the breakfast finishes - having to get up before 10am after being severely baked in amsterdam is a bit harsh.

I lost my i-phpone at the zoo.

For backpackers/tourists on a budget - this is a great hotel to stay whilst in AMsterdam.

The hotel is as central as you will probably get in Amsterdam - great location for exploring the whole city whether you are interested in touristy stuff or nightlife. The value is excellent, we stayed for a week with a large group of friends, perfect for late night partying in the city with an easy route home. I would have reservations of taking a wife or girlfriend there though as the rooms are very small and basic - no luxury but clean and well maintained nonetheless.

The receptiion staff were very friendly and helpful also - recommended

The hostel is very well located, really a couple of steps from the central station and the res light district. Well served by any kind of shop, club, restaurant and whatever. The breakfast is pretty good, and the service is ok.

On the other hand, the rooms are among the worst I've ever seen, the beds and the pillows are not comfortable at all, and the toilet was a mess. Just the shower was good enough.

Would I come back? Just if would not have any other option.

This hotel is in a fabulous location - everything you need is in short walking distance like the Central train station, restaurants, coffee shops, red light district, attractions etc.
The staff were friendly, approachable and helpful and they spoke really good English.
The breakfast was great and had a good selection or cereals, yoghurts, fruit, bread/ toast, eggs, cheese, ham, salami etc etc.
The only thing I can fault it on is for the space in the rooms and quality of the interior this hotel is on the pricey side!

Firstly this hotel in in a great location! 5 minutes’ walk from the train station and situated on "Green" Street and in a central location within walking distance from most tourist attractions.
The hotel itself is very outdated and the blankets with wolfs on them looked like they were from the 80's. The attic room was quite a trek to get too, the stairs were so steep it was like climbing a ladder. Overall if you just want a bed to sleep in and are not too fussed about a nice hotel then i would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Avoid the attic room!
