Arrived here late on a friday ( over for the Roger Waters concert) and the usual ' Hotel Reservations' place on the Damrak was closed, so walked all round the area looking for digs, and finally found this place. Just the two of us, we were given the attic 4 bed room with an amazing view of the (?) cathedral in the red-light ( did wake us up v. early, but more later!), up the ubiquitous steep Amsterdam stairs! Went out for the usual 'dam shenanigans, got back with a kebab and some chips ( the best chips ever) at about 5, turned the light on and there were two more bodies in t'other bunk-bed. Woke the fella up ( he was a Manc, must have been a bit upset these 2 pissed Scousers waking him), not deliberately, but by virtue of two fat 38 y.o. blokes squeezing through a narrow 'dam house whilst pissed. Woke his mate in the bottom bunk, who actually turned out to be his wife, who he had treated to a weekend in the Dam for her 40th birthday as a suprise! Slept very well, the bed was very comfortable, but obvious restrictions with a lady in there! Very tiny bathroom, shared with 4 Germans who had the runs. Robbed of key deposit by fat toad on front desk, church bells all night on the 1/4 hour and within 100 yards, Eu45 for a night. Got a place from the hotel place on the Damrak next day, but it is now a lot cheaper to book even a few days in advance for a nice apartment for less money. As for the Dam, been a while since I was last there, got rid of a lot of the pick-pockets and fellas selling cocaine on the streets, but all seems ( dare I say) a bit sterile now
