Hotel was not very clean! They double booked our room so we ended up in a small room with a double bed as well as another single in it.. Washroom was scungy and had no toilet.. Just shower/sink. Shared toilet on floor.

Good location! Close to Anne frank house, canal tours, red light district etc. wouldn't stay here again.

The hotel is conveniently located near the train station so you can walk or take a tram to your hotel.

The hotel has steep stairs on the way up but most hotels will be like this. Me and my girlfriend were Lucky and got upgraded to larger room as the hotel made a booking error. The room is very cold and damp and not clean at all. Luckily there is a shower and sink in the room but the shared bathroom makes this hotel one to stay away from. The morning breakfast is just bread and coffee which is better than nothing.

I would recommend bring your own sheets and an extra pillow case if you have booked this hotel already.

I will not return to this hotel.

The Hotel was very basic and not really all that clean to be honest, the stairs were also very steap and theres alot of them.

Best point was the price and location decent price if your happy to get your head down after a few beers and the location was great the street takes you to dam square 300 yards to the left and the grasshopper 200 yards to the right.

I found this hostel in booking web site
it~s very close to everywhere and from my room i could see the main street
the staff was nice and i asked a lot of questions about the places around
the room was ok and i stayed there for a few days
i was travel alone and just outside the building there is a pancake house
It is a short walk to anne frank's museum
the only thing i didn't expect was the stairs itself - hold with both hands
the breakfast is ok and the dining room is small but there were 8 tables
I would go back there if i travel again

Room Tip: I didn't see others rooms so i can't tell about what i can tell that my room was close to...

Having travelled specifically for the Amsterdam Marathon, I took me about 10 minutes to get here from Central Station. I had read reviews about the stairs, but when I was buzzed through I actually said "damn" to myself and chuckled.. These are steep and if you have mobility issues, this is not your place..

It is certainly not the Sheraton or Hilton, no TV, aircon, mod cons, but it was clean, friendly and the most important thing, 2 minutes from Dam Square and the Tram stops and about 10 minutes from the famous red light district. Breakfast is basic but there is what I would describe "Tesco Express" just before Dam Square.

Recommended places to visit. Dam Square, Heineken museum, flower market, Red light district and if you going to visit the Van Gogh and Impressionist museum, note that it has been moved due to renovation and can be found at the Hermitage, Amstel 51.

Tip.. Buy a Gvb card and gets you unlimited travel within the city....also, clock tower bells, although beautiful, go off every 30 minutes so if you are a light sleeper bring earphones!
