I've been here for 3 nights among with 2 friends in a 4 beds room with private b athroom; it was clean from our check-in 'till check-out. The guy even asked if we'd need something..perfect if you need a room just for sleeping.. right in front of the hotel there's the bus stop connecting to the schiphol.oh and wonderful position, with bikes you can get anywhere

the hotel's location is really cool, but there are trams running right past it and our windows wouldn't close so it was really loud (and i have a cold now). the service was okay, we got fresh towels every day. The bathroom are dirty and half of the time there wasn't any toiletpaper. one that was cool was that we originally booked a 10 bed room and ended up in a 6 bed dorm with only 5 people. I wouldn't recommend the hotel...

When we arrived at there, a receptionist was very friendly. But another things were everything horrible. The building was 100m from there, there were too steep and narrow steps. The room was not clean, also bed sheets already had someone's hairs. No hungers, the curtain couldn't close properly.
TV was half broken, bathroom's one of two light was didn't work. We talked a front desk person, because work light was too far to shower, we couldn't see properly, but they didn't do anything.
Maybe, some people can stay another good reviewer's room, but I don't recommend this hostel, because we can't choose the room.

So I read the bad reviews before I went and was expecting the worst and I was pleasantly surpised!! Yes it is not a hotel, it is more a hostel, but what do you expect for the price you are paying but it was great for what we needed it for, Amsterdam is expensive and we were a big group who just needed beds and showers. It was clean and comfy enough, and the place was cleaned everyday and you recieved towels and breakfast. It was close to Leidesplain Sq, well connected and easy to find. It is not the ritz but if you want something basic i would recommend it!

We, in a moment of madness, after spending hours looking for somewhere cheap to spend a night in Amsterdam, booked this without reading any reviews. We thought for the money we were paying it would be decent enough. Biggest mistake!
Firstly, after spending nearly an hour walking there, were greeted with, you owe us more money, but if you pay cash you dont have to pay it.. suspicious. then they gave us a key, and told us to walk down the road until you found the right number building, and you let yourselves in off the street. the hotel sign was above some steps to i presume better rooms so i cannot speak for the whole hotel. When we finally worked out how to open the front door with no instruction, we climbed a damp and mouldy smelling (and looking) staircase and found our room. The had given us the wrong key so we had to walk all the way back down the street, and back again where upon arrival they just laughed with no apology, before we could finally get in our room. There were flies hovering around, dead ones collected in the lightshade, empty beer cans on the window sill and out the window which 1 person alone could not lift was a small garden being used as a tip. There was no mirror and dodgy electric plugs. The carpet had stains and was actually damp in places. Surprisingly, the bathroom (shared with other rooms) was clean and modern, which was out of place with the rest of the building. there were also constant bangs and thuds of builders above and going up and down the stairs, with dry paint flaking everywhere. i will not go back and couldnt wait to leave first thing in the morning, I didnt feel safe or rested at all when i was there.

Room Tip: all rooms in the building down the road are run down and it is a hostel not hotel!
