The room was clean and well-kept though very small. Functional for a long weekend with friends or a quick break. Prices were reasonable and the location was great. The staff were all very pleasant and always helpful.

I liked the cat!

This is pretty much a true compromise for location and price vs. quality. I stayed with a friend on a boys trip, so it was ok. If I'd brought my wife here, I'd have gotten a nasty earful. Why? Well the carpets in the room were pretty filthy, the bedcovers would have lit up under a blue light, and the room smelled like old shoes. The beds were springy and the area isn't exactly quiet. That said, I think the sheets were clean.

I didn't mind the negatives so much because we came to Amsterdam to spend the day out and about, the room was only to crash in. The place is conveniently located in the greenlight district close to the central station,and it comes at a bargain price usually. Also the staff are very friendly and great fun to chit chat with. Only thing is that after 4am you can't get back into your room if you're still out.

If you do end up going for it, just be wary of the negatives I listed.

Location (5 mins walking from Amsterdam Central), price are perfect... just the stairs that was a problem, make sure you just bring light luggage with you.
