“Awful”
Reviewed September 13, 2010

LOCATION:

Great. You can get in the city within 10 minutes by tram or nightbus.

ACCOMMODATION:

Awful!
We had a room at Wijttenbachstraat 64 which wasn't clean at all. The walls were dirty and there were several big mould spots on the ceiling. One of the two beds was broken, sleeping was only possible in a slanting position. There was no chair or a coat rack or anything to put your clothes or towels on.
The shower was disgusting. Since the fan was messy, it didn't work well. So there was almost no ventilation to reduce the warm humidity in this extremely narrow room. Under this circumstances it was no surprise that the shower was mouldy too.
The toilet can be described as half-decent. There's a washbowl which is ok, but there is only cold water. So if some men are accustomed to shave their faces with hot water, they'll get a problem.

GENERAL:

Amsterdam Oosterpark Inn makes a dubios impression. Not only that at the adress Oosterpark 71 is only a doorbell panel to find but nothing which would indicate that there is a hostel (There's no reception or anything like that). Furthermore payment was only possible in cash and we didn't get a receipt.

Good location, only 15-20 minutes to Leidseplein (centre of town) by tram/bus which was located very close to the hostel. No shops/eateries nearby. Owners were pleasant and helpful. Beware of city tax (an additional %5) that is not clearly stated on the booking! Rooms on the otherhand were very very basic to say the least. We stayed in a twin bed room with an ensuite. Beds were very small, even for a 5ft tall asian woman! The toilet was in the shower, literally...meaning when you showered, the whole floor to the bathroom/toilet was wet, very inconvenient. Our room was very small and always had a musky smell. Bring your own sheets...as we found a few drops of very suspicious red/brown coloured stains on one of the beds. Pillows were filled with what we thought were small pieces of foam. Perhaps request a room that is not on the ground floor, or better yet...don't book this hostel at all!
