“Cheap ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

This is accually a great place to stay, it is away from the city centre but it only takes 10min with the tram to get there. We had a small room but it was pretty cheap so we had nothing to complain about.

A great place to stay when you won't be spending all your time at the hotel and only need a clean room with a bed.

Stayed March 2014, traveled with friends

Overall this was a decent hotel, probably deserving a solid 3/5 rating.

The good points:

-The room was clean, with the cleaning lady being very helpful for our particularly untidy group!
-The reception staff were especially helpful in pointing out the sights of Amsterdam, with their spoken English excellent. This is probably the biggest positive of the hotel.
-The room was overall good, even if the bathroom was a tad small.

The bad points:

-Noise. This was a real issue at 1/2 am in the morning, where people would be returning from clubs and hence were very noisy. The hotel didn't say anything to these people even when in the rooms, disturbing a family with a baby.
-Smell: The hotel supposedly has a no smoking policy in their rooms; however, there was a quite apparent smell of cannabis coming into the room from the window, giving the distinct sense that this rule wasn't particularly applied. Indeed, the people next door to us smoked it on a daily basis!


Overall, this was a decent hotel, designed more for the clubbing individual than the family group. However, I would recommend that the hotel attempts to solve the smoking issue, as it really did detract from the stay.

Hotel flipper was on the bus route to and from the airport. 24 hour reception with great security doors to get in and out. Rooms were comfortable beds were cleaned daily always hot water after a long day out and about and the breakfast was brilliant!!!! Reception helpful when asking questions and local amenities were all close!!!!!
Only negative is you can hear doors from other rooms closing but that's not anyone's fault. People just need to have more consideration when closing doors and not let them slam.

Cheap but it was clean and the bed was comfy so can't complain :) only negatives I'd say was having to go up those extremely steep stairs! And having to go up and down them during the night for the toilet was such a chore. Also it's not really in the city centre, we paid for tram for the time we were there and the last trams were at like half 11 so couldn't really stay out late unless we wanted a 40 minute walk home.

Overall a good hotel the manager was so lovey great customer service gave us a map helped us with directions etc but would be better if in the city centre

Stayed October 2013

Clean room, super helpful staff at reception. Tram at the top of the main road takes you to Centraal in half an hour. Only qualm is that it can get quite noisy if you are next to a big dorm but that's to be expected in hostel. Would recommend.
